Hold on to your butts. Buzzo and Dale have assembled yet another incarnation of the band (this time with two members of the Butthole Surfers) and proceed to rip through a whole new set of thick syrupy goodness, in typical absurdist Melvins fashion of course. You get everything from songs about crank to vocoded vocals and all the weirdness in between.
And, well, thats all good and fine, except that it looks like their new full length “Hold It In” won’t be available on vinyl for a bit. That being said… the album is too long to fit on an LP, so, naturally Amphetamine Reptile created this extension “Bride of Crankenstein” 10″ on this crazy grey/red/splatter color vinyl that features the title track + 2 songs, including the album’s epic 12 minute closer. As if this wasn’t enough, there is also a new fangled “Night Goat” 7″ available which is also apparently pressed on red vinyl on one side and white on the other. Hell if we know how that works.
With all things AmRep, these will disappear with the quickness. So, set your watches kids for 6pm CT/US, which is when these bad boys go on sale tonight. The mailorder versions of the 10″ & 7″ are limited to 400 and 300 copies respectively. Looks like a package deal is available too.
