Melvins "Ozma / Bullhead" 2xLP

$44.00

This 2xLP 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 "Ozma," from 1989, which was recorded soon after their move from Washington to San Francisco, and was their first release to include the diminutive yet mighty Lorax (Lori Temple Black) on bass. Disc two is "Bullhead," from 1991. The songs are longer, the mood is calmer, yet more menacing. "Boris" (which gave the Japanese group their name) is a long, slow, low death march of addiction and self-abuse. "Zodiac" is a frantic punk rock machine gun blasting away at Buzz's demons (both inner and outer). "Cow" is a happy baboon bashing away at the best drum solo of his life. The new gatefold packaging includes never-before-seen vintage photos, as well as the original artwork and insert. 2xLP includes digital download of album and one additional track.
