Brilliant story, Ian!  :lol:  :lol: And what harm has Ian ever done to Fart that he deserves to be harrassed no matter what he writes, even when it's funny and brilliant as fuck? Digger > Nigger and an Fuck > Shut!  :lol:

That's tits. :shock: I have Walsby's first book, haven't gotten around to buying the second one. I'll order them both up when the new one's available.

Melvins Release Demos With Comic Book

Photo by Andrew Kesin

Stoner metal elder statesmen Melvins will release a collection of eight previously unreleased recordings from 1987 called Making Love Demos on October 9 via Bifocal Media.

The CD will come in a package with MANCHILD 3, the third book of comic art by Brian Walsby, who has not only designed Melvins album art but has also played drums with the likes of Polvo and Ryan Adams.

On his MySpace blog, Walsby gives the Making Love Demos tracklist (below) and includes a little bit about their history as well. Featuring a good number of songs that ended up on 1989's Ozma, these are the last Melvins recordings with original bassist Matt Lukin (who would go on to be in Mudhoney). The title of the collection comes from a KISS song the band covered (!) for it but which got lost in the ensuing two decades.

For those wondering why the Demos come with Walsby's book in particular (other than the fact that he's a friend of the band), the connection is that MANCHILD 3 includes Walsby's "Illustrated Melvins tour diary."

Speaking of touring, Melvins have a pair of dates scheduled for the coming months. The first is tomorrow (August 4) in L.A.

Making Love Demos:

01 Creepy Smell
02 My Small % Shows Most
03 Dime Lined Divide
04 Excess Pool
05 Vile Vermillion Vacancy
06 We Got Worries Here
07 Let God Be Your Gardener
08 Repulsion

Dates:

08-04 Los Angeles, CA - Echoplex
09-15 Hollywood, CA - Henry Fonda Theater


This will be cool!
