I know in the past i've been critical of Haze's artwork, but i must say this new album is the best cover art i've probably ever seen him do. I love the whole package. Very nicely designed.

agree, great artwork

Was chatting with Stallion earlier and he made an interesting point - that it would be hard to replicate electronic sounds and what Throbbing Gristle did. Especially sounds that where generated by all sorts of weird, obsolete equipment that Throbbing Gristle used back in the day. I bet even they themselves wouldn't really know what they did at the time. That TG weren't musicians in the classical sense and so what they produced was more improvised. I think that will be interesting to consider in terms of how this album is approached and what Melvins/Void Manes do around that. I guess that is why the material is loosely covers. Covers but also their own thing or tracks in the style of TG. I mean when i first heard the Zombie B Zyklon song i went back and listened to the original TG version and i didn't even recognise it!!! Totally different and it's own thing. I suppose that is the way to think of this record as a whole. Although being that i'm not too familiar with TG's releases everything i hear on TJGFH will seem it's own thing.

I know one of Buzz's favourite TG is Heathen Earth. This is also one of mine from them. It is my understanding that the songs performed on that record are live interpretations of recordings and the original release had no titles listed for songs performed. That is most likely how they approached their attempt at what they wanted to cover. Interpretations.
I heard their periods attract bears

Vinyl sold out within 3 minutes  :shock: 8)

Hm. I refreshed my screen and the second they appeared for $150, I hit BUY and in the middle of processing payment, the screen refreshed itself and said they were sold out. Same for the $75 version. I guess they haven't fixed their Shofify cart yet.

Just woke up and missed it.

Interesting discussion on the original TG recordings. At Clan of Xymox my son was explain what equipment was making the "old" electronic sounds on the tape machine. I thought, you can differentiate that?

the bloat

If anyone happened to grab an extra one, I would love to buy it! Ran into an issue with PayPal, and it was sold out before I could fix it

did anyone else think there'd be a bundle? (honestly thought the orange lp would be strictly tour only)

Same thing happened for me - the set of two (standard and tour edition) we for $150 - by the time I was checking out it was sold out. I was lucky enough to then get a standard edition.

How many records a second did the Melvins just sell?

haze confirmed, there would be a small number as bundle. the rest of the color is tour only... those don't have the extra hole though.
