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.

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).





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





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!

LOL we had the same problem with our practice room next door to Cathedral's. In the end we gave up and just went to see Cathedral!

I had a similar issue but it was with a bagpipe heavy metal covers band called Bags of Rock. That just made me go home.
