Amphetamine Reptile Records/ MELVINS / Hepa-Titus / Seawhores / Catch-All Thread

Recommended Posts

In a recent interview, King BuzzO joked that the band was going to release their Sugar Daddy Live LP as a bunch of single 12" LPs with another band doing a track or two on the b-side.

It seems that joke is actually true.

This is from Haze XXL on the AmRep board:

Okay, here's the scoop so far. Instead of a normal 12" vinyl release of the Melvins "Sugar Daddy" LP, there will be 13 - 12" 45rpm records. Sharing each record will be faves of the Melvins past/future*/present. The first 2 are getting pressed now are with U-Men and Cows. Packaging has yet to be determined 100%, but pressing should be large enough to get around and be affordable.

So far confirmed...

Off

Fucked Up

Mudhoney

Butthole Surfers

more TBA - stay tuned!

Nice selection of bands. Just learned about U-Men. If u ain't heard it, Cows "Sorry In Pig Minor" is a masterpiece and K-Buzz produced the album. P.S. A series is only affordable if you don't need to collect them all. ;) amrep b rapem my walletz. guess not though. it's consensual.

really?

no you just paid 65 dollars, for a unique form of the album, 13 pieces of original artwork, 13 songs from 13 different artists, some old songs, some unreleased versions, some new songs and a history lesson from the forefathers of this type of music...

and even at 10 dollars each it is a bargain

Duly noted. Doesn't mean my interest isn't piqued, just saying -- 65, 130, 260, whatever it costs.. that's an expensive-ass album! Melvins fans do seem to be some of the most willing people to part with money that I have seen so this probably wont be an issue for most. Maybe they'll do the same download deal they did on the endless residency set for the cheapskates.

One or two tracks with 13 releases planned? That is about $260 for 13-26 tracks. I guess I'll put the turd in the punch bowl here but they just found a way bend their fans over and fuck their wallets yet again. You are paying at minimum $10 a song and that blows.

I'll probably buy this but maybe this will be the series of releases I finally put my foot down on.
