RELEASING FEB. 26th, IPECAC RECORDINGS
The Melvins have released one last taste of their upcoming Melvins 1983 release, Working With God (Feb. 26,Ipecac Recordings), releasing the song “1 Fuck You” – an ode to the American singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson. Buzz says “Why haven’t we recorded this song before now? It says it all. Nilsson was a genius!!” This song is not the only tribute piece across the album, “I Fuck Around” being a re-imagined cover of The Beach Boys – can you spot anymore?
Working With God features the 1983 iteration of the Melvins: Osborne, Crover, and original drummer Mike Dillard. The 13-song release has seen a number of single releases: “I Fuck Around” (a re-imagined cover of The Beach Boys’ “I Get Around” – ) with “Bouncing Rick,” “Caddy Daddy,” “Brian, The Horse-Faced Goon,” and “The Great Good Place.”
“Has ties to the heavier side of their 90s major label stint, but the majority of it beams with surf rock, twisted doo-wop, demented children’s music and lots of fucking around as one might expect.” – Metal Hammer
