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. Reissu...view item »


Melvins
Bullhead

It's hard to explain how influential the Melvins are; mention their name and even a casual fan of alternative rock may make the link to Nirvana and their influence on Kurt Cobain. Going deeper, and with reference to this particular period of the Melvins' ever-evolving sound, 1991's Bullhead is a stone-cold stoner/doom/drone rock classic which ha...view item »


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 McD...view item »


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 gatef...view item »


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 mi...view item »


Melvins
Live At Third Man Records

Now, it’s fair to say that I’ve not always sung the praises of Third Man Records. For a while there it looked like they’d settled into a modus operandi of putting out an endless stream of increasingly pointless novelty 7”s by “artists” like the ...view item »


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 dynami...view item »

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 ...view item »


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 M...view item »


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. Recor...view item »

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.

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 ...view item »


Mike & The Melvins
Three Men and a Baby

Jello Biafra with The Melvins
Never Breathe What You Can't See

Half the songs on here sound like Plastic Surgery Disasters-era Dead Kennedys. Which shouldn't be a surprise because the Melvins had offered to be Jello's backing band after the ex-Kennedys sued the crap out of him and reformed with a new singer (playing only the old songs) and right before Jello got his new band together. If you like the DKs or Je...view item »


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...view item »


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...view item »

Melvins
Tres Cabrones

The MELVINS are busy lads. Eager to keep things interesting whilst maintaining their daft work ethic ‘Tres Cabrones’ sees Buzzo and Crover reunite with original drummer Mike Dillard under the guise of Melvins 1983. It’s not strict reunion as such but it’s a close as the lads are willing to get and, of course, having Dale ...view item »


Melvins
Everybody Loves Sausages

You always know what to expect with the Melvins, if that thing is something totally bloody weird and obnoxious and surprising. This time around, just like last time around, they’re doing something a bit different. This time, though, that something is playing other people’s songs with their famous ...view item »

Melvins
Sugar Daddy Live

A Melvins live album...with the dudes from Big Business...together at last. As Chandler (from Friends not the hard-boiled crime novelist) would say "could it be any more rocking?" The answer to that question is a resounding yes. The godfathers of grunge/metal wont be denied. I reckon they should be inaugur...view item »

Melvins
Bride Screamed Murder

You totally know that when you listen to a new Melvins record certain ingredients will be encapsulated within its musical cooking pot. Thick riffage. Superhuman drumming. Weird shouty growling vocal hooks. Added ingredients...a dollop of humour,and maybe a soupcon of nightmarish imagery.Now you are all set for a veritable feast. This album...view item »

Ozma

The Melvins are a legendary 3 piece responsible for providing acres of sludgy rifferama to the underground masses over the years. We have a really limited 7" on Suicide Squeeze records called Revolve. And it's slow-mo grunge for people that frown a lot. 1 per person you guys! This has record sleeve of...view item »

Melvins
Chicken Switch

It was years ago when I first read about a Melvins remix album, it had been so long I totally forgot about it and then all of a sudden it appeared. Now Melvins are a band very close to my heart and to most people the thought of one of your favorite rock bands of all time getting remixed would be sac religious to the source material.

The Melvins/ Brian Walsby
Manchild 3

I killed some time on my train journey home by briefly flicking through 'Manchild 3' the super cool Brian Walsby comic book that comes complete with a Melvins CD. 'The Making Love Demos' disc that accompanies the package is simply a must for any die-hard Melvins head. A fantastic CD of raw, early recordings from 1987 which were given to the comic c...view item »

Dale Crover

Dale Crover has assembled a surprisingly good collection of mind melting hard rock with this solo offering. Easily the heaviest of the three solo albums,and arguably the best. Although it's hard to say that for sure because each one of them has its own personality and sound. Dale Crover features singing from the quiet Melvin, and his songs exami...view item »

King Buzzo

I walked into this one really expecting the heavy/fuzz laden Buzzo sound. I was actually surprised by the way this came off. In a way this is far more laid back than I could have imagined from King B. With that said, I really like the way this album is put together. I don't want anyone to think this one doesn't have its heavy spots...it definite...view item »

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 ...view item »

A Senile Animal

It's amazing how those bits of loose change pile up, I'll have enough change to snaffle THE MELVINS 'A Senile Animal' album. This is their first non-collaborative studio album in four years I think and with their new bass player and additional drummer (Coady Willis and Jarred Warren from Big Business) they sound...view item »

Jello Biafra with The Melvins
Sieg Howdy

In Sieg Howdy!, things are leaning towards a certain and indisputable single-minded album. It seems Jello learned how to put his burning speeches under the Melvins’ sludgy sound delivering some very powerful material of political doom! It is also apparent that Buzz Osborne has a better understanding of the unique style of Jello vocal expre...view item »

Mangled Demos From 1983

Up until now, the oldest stuff I've heard from the Melvins was their three or four tracks on the Deep Six compilation from 1985. Much of the content here is material uber fans have probably heard before in one form or another from various bootlegs, but maybe not these exact takes from these exact sessions. A few songs appear more than once, from...view item »

The Maggot

This release is packed with what the Melvins are quite adept at: Variety. From the chilled zen of the Fleetwood Mac cover "The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown)" to the scraping bray of "Manky", no two songs are indistinguishable from each other. All the previously mentioned tracks are highlights, and are equally as powerful as less f...view item »

The Crybaby

The whole album is really, really varied. From the insane noise in "Moon Pie" to the crazy Mike Patton sound of "G.I. Joe." It does a really good job of showcasing a lot of the Melvins' influences as well as some publicity and collaborations with their friends. One excellent example of this is "Divorced," a track with King Buzzo and Dale Crover ...view item »

Melvins
The Bootlicker

One of The Melvins' better and weirder albums but the psych influence tends to be exaggerated (not nearly as psychedelic as I was expecting) and though part of the point of this album is they're consciously not going balls out with the rockage, I can't help waiting for the music to explode into sonic fury and it never does. It mostly produces an...view item »
