Sounds interesting. It's not a band i know a great deal about but it seems more than credible (and indeed probably probable!) since Dale and Toshi have both been involved in that project previously to some extent. I do remember listening ages ago to their first record and not really warming to it much. I'll have to go and have another listen to them both now.

Early on I conflated Deaf Nephews with Dumb Numbers.

As far as I understand, Dumb Numbers has always been Adam Harding & friends. It's cool especially since he has awesome friends. I don't have the same affinity I would for, say, the Butthole Surfers, so I'm not expecting Hold It In level collaboration. But still could be pretty cool whatever it is. I think it could match well with the Five Legged Dog version of the band.

  Early  Bird 2022 has arrived... 
  A year of VIP Membership + 8 Ltd. Edition LPs + 8 Advance Lathe-Cut Singles + Free Catalog LP of your choice + Bonus Swag 

Presently, in 2022, vinyl records are a commodity that require an ungodly amount of time to manufacture. Currently, it takes more time to make a vinyl record than it takes to create a human being. Rather than delay our artists’ releases for untold months, or cancel our longstanding tradition of physical subscriptions, we at Joyful Noise had another idea…We realized that while we have zero control over the global vinyl manufacturing fiasco, we DO have control over our in-house 1940’s record lathe machine.

As a way to deal with this vinyl crisis while continuing to keep our stream of physical releases flowing, we will be releasing limited lathe-cut singles throughout 2022 as “companion pieces” to our full-length titles.

Every VIP Vinyl edition in 2022 will be accompanied by a 7" handmade lathe-cut counterpart. Each 7" will include an advance single on Side A, an exclusive rarity on Side B, and a secret link to stream the album early. Singles will ship upon album announcement (usually 3-4 months before album “street date”), serving as a placeholder while we all wait for the proper 12" records to materialize.

 We want to keep our label community thriving for both our artists and our supporters. Though we typically price these lathe-cuts at $15 or $20, there will be no additional fee for this VIP lathe-cut component in 2022.

If you sign up for Early Bird, you will automatically receive every VIP Vinyl edition throughout the year, along with each advance lathe-cut single, and additional exclusive perks (details below). Each release is strictly limited to 500 hand-numbered copies and with 12"s being pressed on specialty colored vinyl.

Artists you may expect to hear from in 2022 include El Ten Eleven, Dumb Numbers & Melvins, Deerhoof, Sound of Ceres, Oneida, Sleep Party People, and more...

God, by most bands levels we are totally spoilt with all these releases! I've been listening to both the Dumb Numbers albums this evening and moderately enjoying them. They are better than i remembered but it makes me wonder if this album will be a total 50/50 effort or lean slightly (or significantly) more one way or another. Obviously as a Melvins fan im hoping it's more Buzz and Dale led than Adam from DN. I find it funny that Hold It In was a released as a Melvins release and yet Crystal Fairy wasn't. To me all these are MELVINS albums however one might cut it. So it is a bit intriguing that (at this current point) this new collaboration is mentioned with both bands names together than as existing under one banner or another.

Hi! This is Adam. To be clear, this will be an EP not a full-length LP. Technically the vinyl will start its life as a 12” but will be die-cut to compliment Mackie’s artwork and will end up around 10” in size.

I’d say its a pretty equal collab between both bands, with Dale at the center of the Venn diagram. The basic songs were written by myself and Steve Patrick from Dumb Numbers, but objectively I’d say it sounds more like Melvins. Dale plays drums on everything. Buzz handles all vocals and some guitar (I lost my singing voice for almost 12 months while recovering from Covid). We both wrote lyrics.

Toshi also plays some guitar and Ol’ Swivel Hips plays some bass. David Yow contributes vocals on the last song. David is also doing a remix (along with additional vocals) for the title track which will be released as a lathe-cut.

Ah right, yeah that’s from 2016.. this is just Dumb Numbers (not a Melvins collab). Dale plays drums and does monk vocals at the end of that song, and then he does a little unlisted a cappella version of Manic Mechanic by ZZ Top at the end :lol:

David Yow and I recently filmed an episode of the Joyful Noise Radio Hour and we talk a little bit about recording the new Dumb Numbers and Melvins EP..

https://youtu.be/_J7YxnMohQE

There’s a short preview of one of the new songs at the start of the video, and also some interesting tidbits from David, including the recording of Dry Drunk and Blockbuster from The Crybaby (around the 50 minute mark if you’re interested)..

Well this answers quite a few questions.

"Harvel" from the limited Splits set a few years ago is on here again. I don't know if it's in any way a different recording, but it's great that's getting a wider release.

This is definitely the sawblade shaped vinyl we saw earlier. Super excited for this.

Yay, Kevin and David appearances!

The remix by David Yow appears to be only for JNR100 subscribers. https://www.discogs.com/release/22562222-Dumb-Numbers-and-Melvins-Broken-Pipe-David-Yow-Remix

None of the songs from Lord of the Flies are on here, so the overlap must instead be with an upcoming Melvins album.

Got one thanks. Discount code 'VIP' gets you 10% off which is the price of a month's subscription if you buy both variants.

This is probably a JNR thing, but I already burned up a digital download by getting the one pre-release song. I hope all three songs are in the download when the full record is released.

I dig this tune, one very thick groove.

Apparently you would get the digital download anyway because it is included with the vinyl, but whatever, Bandcamp is great.

I'm comparing "Harvel" from the split series to the one on Broken Pipe EP

It might be the same recording, but it's at least a noticeably different mix. I think Buzz vocals on this one sit better. Not sure if the wild synths are different.

Also, the new one is 2:00 and the old one is 3:27. The song itself is the same length, but the old one had a stick click lead-in, then some extra stuff at the end. Those extra sounds are
* an analog synth making some burbling noise
* an excerpt from Sesame Street of a character named Melvin who does everything with the letter M
* a few seconds of a drum jam from outside a rehearsal space[?]

I'm probably going to make a combined disc for myself of these two releases, so I might Frankenstein them together again. I like all those bonus noises and the lead-in

Just listening through the EP, i like it. The David Yow track wasn't what i was expecting (i thought it might be more of a regular song) but it was good and fits firmly within the Melvins wheelhouse. All round a fairly decent EP - Harvel being my favourite track.
Title: Re: Dumb Numbers and Melvins in 2022
Post by: hadamadgrin on April 30, 2022, 06:49:47 AM
A few fun facts:

I wrote the music for Harvel back in ‘97 after seeing the Melvins for the first time in my hometown of Geelong, Australia (Alive At The fucker Club was recorded two days later).

(https://i.ibb.co/FWB3G7D/geelong.jpg) (https://ibb.co/fSCFm0x)



What sounds like synths on Harvel are actually guitars recorded through a Tascam GS-30D and out into Toshi’s desk..

(https://i.ibb.co/QkZ5Bzn/tascam.jpg) (https://ibb.co/682dhVb)



I used to rent a rehearsal space in downtown Los Angeles opposite the Melvins during the Big Biz era. One day I was trying to record some songs with a friend who was visiting from Australia, but the Melvins were so loud we couldn’t record anything.

The sound of the “drum jam” that Amazon mentions was what I recorded that day coming from across the hall!
