"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'.

7/10 Ant Staff review, 18 April 2018

Being a Melvins fan for well over half of my life on this planet, despite the fact that recent albums have less than blown me away, I always check what they’re up to.

Having done the two drummers thing, this time around they have two bass players on this record. Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) is joined by, yeah, you guessed it from the title - Butthole Surfer Jeff Pinkus. Generally speaking, the album is rooted in Melvins classic rock mode but Pinkus does pour some Buttholes style LSD damaged psychedelic punk into the brew as heard on ‘Embrace The Rub’, although things don’t get quite as unhinged as I was expecting.

But expect the unexpected is always the way with a new Melvins record - so don’t be surprised to find that there’s a cover of The Beatles ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’, or that opening track ‘Stop Moving To Florida’ is an amusing medley of James Gang’s ‘Stop’ and Butthole Surfers ‘Moving To Florida’ complete with drunk redneck/preacher man style rambling. By the end of the record, I actually never even noticed there were two bass players at all - whether that’s a good or bad thing, I actually have no idea.

Not a classic Melvins album by any stretch, but still good fun and the closing cover of ‘Graveyard’ from Locust Abortion Technician is pretty cool.
