MELVINS

EGGNOG / LICE ALL

BONER


Format: 2xLPs
Cata No: BR46
Barcode: 038161004612
This double-LP package combines two of the earliest releases from
the often imitated but never duplicated Melvins. Formed in the early-
’80s in the scenic wonderland known as Aberdeen, WA, the band took
inspiration from Black Flag, Black Sabbath, Venom, Flipper, Stooges
and other floggers of high-energy, low-velocity plod. Today, more
than 30 years later, they might be more popular than ever. Slow and
steady wins the race.
Disc one is Eggnog, from 1991. Originally released as a 10-inch,
Eggnog is a wild ride into the outer limits of Melvins-dom. The first
side cuts loose with three quick blasts. “Wispy” has the Lorax (Lori
Temple Black) on bass and Dale Crover on drums, pounding one note
in unison while Buzz Osborne bellows and whispers and turns his
guitar on and off. “Antitoxidote” is a rabid horse galloping off into
the desert, with yet more stops and starts and feedback detonations.
“Hog Leg” sounds like a syphillitic Jimmy Swaggert trying to mimic
Dio while being backed by a drunken ZZ Top cover band. Side Two
features the side-long epic “Charmicarmicat,” with seasick waves of
guitar and slow-motion madness bringing communicable disease and
poisonous jellyfish ashore, stinging and infecting the unsuspecting
sunbathers before gently washing out to sea again.
Disc two is Lice-All, from 1992, previously known as self-titled,
and also previously known as something else we’re all not gonna talk
about, thank you very much. This was their last release before signing
their Atlantic deal, and features the introduction of new bass player
Joe Preston (previously of Earth, currently of Thrones). It’s one long,
slow, loud blob of drones, moans and fuzztones. The opening endless
power chord shimmer influenced Sleep, Sunn O))), and countless
other sludge metal drone freaks for years to come.
The LPs have been remastered and are back in print on vinyl for
the first time in 15 years. The new gatefold packaging includes neverbefore-
seen vintage photos, as well as the original artwork and insert,
all tidied up and ready to meet Mom and Dad. Free download is included.
A number of Melvins back catalog releases are available exclusively
from Revolver—contact your salesperson for a complete list
