MELVINS, THE – mangled demos from 1983 – CD

CDalternative tentacles records2005


« Mangled Demos From 1983 » — the latest bit of punk nostalgia from the ever-prolific MELVINS — begins, unexpectedly, with what turns out to be a minor revelation: an early 80s radio broadcast of Buzz Osborne, Matt Lukin, and Mike Dillard playing a couple of live songs. The tracks, in more ways than one, are vintage MELVINS, their unique sense of performance humor already encapsulated in a super-brief blast of punk noise meant to either taunt or tease their unseen and incredibly mainstream audience.
