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!

2012's The Bulls & The Bees is a wonderful EP from start-to-finish. It is a fantastic introduction to the Melvins for newcomers and A MUST-HAVE for any self respecting Melvins fan. And Electroretard from 2001, with earworms like Missing, Interstellar Overdrive and killer re-dos of Revolve and Lovely Butterflies, is like a B-Sides extravaganza! It's lovely having them together in one package. Something older, something newer, straight rock, noisy weirdness and some covers. Listen carefully and often.
