Melvins
The Maggot & The Bootlicker

To mark the 20th anniversary of the Ipecac Records imprint, as well as the commencement of Melvins’ beloved ‘trilogy’ of albums all released within the space of 12 months, this white and ‘doublemint’ green double LP set collects the first two records out of that triptych - The Maggot and The Bootlicker.

Melvins
Houdini

American noise (then) trio Melvins were named after a grocery store supervisor who was despised by the band member who worked under him. Houdini was their fifth studio album, and the first on major label Atlantic (who dropped them 2 albums later). Championed by grunge Gods Nirvana, 'Houdini' was essentially the band's break-through album. Reissued for your pleasure on lovely gatefold vinyl.

Melvins
Pinkus Abortion Technician

"BASS, how low can you go" as Chuck D once said, well pretty low when you combine A.) The Melvins stoner sludge rock and B.) two, yes TWO bass players, expect Buzz Osborne's usual brand of Godzilla sized riffs with the addition of Butthole Surfers four stringer Jeff Pinkus and Melvins/Redd Kross/Off! bassist Steven McDonald adding bowel expelling bottom end to 'Pinkus Abortion Technician'.

Melvins
Stag

A welcome vinyl reissue of 1996's Stag; Melvins' 8th studio album and the last to be released on a major label (they were dropped by Atlantic the following year). American trio / sometimes four-piece Melvins were named after a supermarket supervisor that a band member worked under, and despised. Get yourself hooked up with this double gatefold edition, mastered from the original analog tapes. Or, the single LP (as per the original pressing) on Music On Vinyl.

Dale Crover
The Fickle Finger Of Fate

Dale Crover is, of course, one of the core members of sludge legends Melvins, and as such has about a thousand releases to his name. But The Fickle Finger Of Fate is the first time, in all those decades of music-making, that Dale has released a full-length solo album! This rare treat mixes surprising catchiness with more disorientating weirdness, making for a wonderful whole. Perfect for Melvins fans, but maybe also for non-Melvins fans… Out on Joyful Noise.

Melvins
Ozma / Bullhead

Combining the Melvins second and third albums in a remastered, double LP with unseen photos and download code, these scuzzy sludge records haven’t been cleaned up too much. The songs get a bit longer between these albums, but otherwise its just refining the legendary Melvins formula of slow heavy riffing, stop/start dynamics and King Buzzo’s dark humour.

Melvins
A Walk With Love & Death

A Walk With Love & Death is a brand new album by Melvins in trio mode, and its a double! Split into a Death disc and a Love disc, and featuring guest appearances from the likes of The Pixies’ Joey Santiago and Teri Gender Bender, these hefty slabs of Melvins show off different angles of what this amazing band can do. Double CD and double LP editions, each housed in a sturdy box. On Ipecac.

Melvins
Stoner Witch

1994's 'Stoner Witch' was the Melvins second release on major label Atlantic, who dropped the band in 1997 and banned the group from releasing their follow-up 'Prick' under their own name when they took it to Amphetamine Reptile Records due to it being a bit experimental. 'Stoner Witch' remains a firm fan favourite - a Melvins classic from the Mark Deutrom on bass period.

Melvins
Hold It In

Their first full-length as a quartet since 2010’s 'The Bride Screams Murder', ‘Hold It In’ marks yet another return for Washington’s ever-prolific Melvins, this time with the addition of guitar-proficient Paul Leary and JD Pinkus (Butthole Surfers), joining originals and sole constants Buzz Osbourne and Dale Crover. Recorded between Washington and Austin earlier this year, ‘Hold It In’ promises to be a “refreshing piece of fiction in a boring world of fact and bullshit” according to Osborne. Sounds about right! 

Crystal Fairy
Crystal Fairy

Crystal Fairy is pretty much a heavy-and-complex-music supergroup, including two Melvins, Teri Gender Bender of Le Butcherettes and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of The Mars Volta and At The Drive-In. Christ. Naturally, this muscular blend of musicians results in some tight, thick-sounding, heavy rock songs that should appeal to fans of all involved parties. Debut album out on Ipecac.

Melvins
Eggnog / Lice All

Not one, but two freshly remastered slabs of heavy from Melvins! Eggnog, from 1991, and Lice All, from 1992, haven’t been available on vinyl for absolutely ages, so reasons to be cheerful here for any Melvins fans among you. Big, droney chugging monsters for your delectation: did I mention heavy already?

Melvins
Basses Loaded

This Melvins album is named Basses Loaded because it is packed to the gills with notable bass players, up to a total of 6! As well as the regulars, we have Steve McDonald of Red Kross and OFF!, Jeff Pinkus of Butthole Surfers, and Krist Novoselic of goddamn Nirvana. All contributing to the Melvins maelstrom of low-end heavy. Pow.

Mike & The Melvins
Three Men and a Baby

The Melvins are as dense and crushing as ever on this new record they’ve made with Mike Kunka of godheadSilo. Three Men And A Baby chugs along at speed, a sludge-noise-rock juggernaut that isn’t going to slow down for you, or for anybody else. The album is available from Sub Pop, on a broad array of formats: tape, CD and vinyl in gatefold sleeve.

Melvins
Across The USA In 51 Days: The Movie

Merchants of heavy sludge The Melvins evidently have a lot of stamina: not only have they been playing and releasing for many decades, they also undertook a 50 state US tour in 51 days back in 2012: wow. Across The USA In 51 Days: The Movie is just that, a document of that tour shot mostly on the band’s phones for that intimate touch. An essential DVD for Melvins fans.

Melvins
The Bulls & The Bees + Electroretard

Sonically weighty favourites The Melvins here reissue a pair of out-of-print releases together: The Bulls & The Bees and Electroretard. Sludged riffs rule supreme here, as ever on Melvins records, and the tracklisting contains a few gems, like a cover of Pink Floyd’s classic jam ‘Interstellar Overdrive’. Wow!

Melvins
Joe Preston

As a close look at the cover art might reveal to you, this 1992 EP is part of Melvins’ tribute to Kiss, in which three members of the much-loved sludgelords each made a solo record to line-up with Kiss members’ solo records. Obviously, nobody will confuse the morass-thick rock-noise of Joe Preston with any actual Kiss material. Vinyl reissue on Boner.
