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.

The fact that Joe was only a member for a very short time, and he appears on the solo cd series is kind of funny. Most casual Melvins fans will glance at this release and dismiss it, but within the grooves of this EP contains some of the heaviest drone metal since the band Earth (see track 3, 'Hands First Flower' which takes up 23 of the EP's 27 total minutes) which doesn't seem surprising since Preston was in one of the earliest formations of Earth. This album is nowhere near a Melvins album, and will probably be disliked by many Melvins casual fans, but if you liked the Melvins album 'Lysol' (also with Joe Preston) this record is one step beyond into the realm of totally bizarre drone metal. A great EP that I wish would have been an LP.
