I saw Mike Dillard's band "King Fu" last night in Olympia. They did one Melvins cover "Queen". The rest was fast rock, mostly original, a couple other covers. They're not sludgy or "Melviny", but they were tight. Dillard's a good drummer, it was interesting to see him live. He's got advance copies of the new Melvins release and I checked it out. For those who don't know, it's all Dillard on the upcoming '83 mangled demos. There is a hilarious live radio broadcast on the CD, plus a recording of Buzz, Lukin, Dillard and friends arguing over some food. There are a lot of great songs on it, I thought it might turn out to be sort of a "collectors" release for die hard fans, but it's really good. Mackie's artwork is cool, and Buzz wrote 3 pages of liner notes that are also pretty damn hilarious about his early days growing up before he left for California. i.e. throwing molotov cocktails, getting chased by the cops, and other general drunken debauchery.

It's all fucking good-dini as far as I'm concerned. Then again, I'd eat a MELVINS deep fried turd. GO MELVINS!!

Mangled Demos from 1983 due out May 31st on Ipecac
Tuesday, April 05, 2005 - 11:40 AM
from southern.com: * Mangled Demos From 1983 * CD * Ipecac Records * IPC-63

15 trks, 44 mins. No way! This is the very first time these demos have ever been released and they sound as raw & vital as they did back then, feat. the 1st Mike, Matt, Buzz lineup.

It is to be released in the U.S. on May 31st according to cduniverse.com. This stuff has only been available in bootleg form at this point, here.



Here's an update from pitchforkmedia including the tracklist:The new CD features several songs whose titles got lost somewhere in the last 22 years; rather than making up new ones, the Melvins appear to have assigned them little graphical doodles, which makes the following tracklist a bit of a bitch to reprint. Meanwhile, some songs are included twice, and others run together, producing a total of 18 tracks that, in some abstract sense, look like this:

01 Elks Lodge Christmas Broadcast
02 If You Get Bored - live radio
03 Forgotten Principles
04 Snake Appeal
05 [flower]
06 If You Get Bored
07 Set Me Straight
08 [communist star]
09 I'm Dry
10 Forgotten Principles
11 I Don't Know
12 Matt-Alec
13 The REAL You
14 Run Around
15 Keep Away From Me
16 [clover]
17 Bibulous Confabulation (during rehearsal)
18 [iron cross]
19 [pencil]
20 Matt-Alec
21 "Walter"
22 [broken scissors]
23 [airplane]
