It's not the thunderous twin-drummer assault that the MELVINS have been bringing for the past few years, but MELVINS LITE (Guitarist Buzz Osborne, Drummer Dale Crover, Bassist Trevor Dunn) 's FREAK PUKE is still an ample slice of noise from a band who, regardless of configuration, still bring the rock.
The MELVINS have partnered with Scion A/V Metal for a FREE original EP entitled THE BULLS & THE BEES. The band's first new music since 2010's THE BRIDE SCREAMED MURDER can be downloaded (in exchange for an email) via the TopSpin widget below. Since I love MELVINS and have a Scion XB (with a million miles on it and in need of constant repair lately), I feel good about sharing this here on The Rock Father™.
THE MELVINS won't be picking up any new listeners with the release of SUGAR DADDY LIVE (out May 31, 2011 via Ipecac), but at this stage in the game that's hardly the point. This new 13-track set recorded live at The Busta-Guts club in Downey, California is a cornicopia of tracks from their more recent albums, peppered with a few old favorites.
