MELVINS - Ozma + Bullhead [2xLP] BR45-1


"This double-LP 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 highenergy, 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. The LPs have been remastered and are back in print on vinyl for the first time in 15 years. The new gatefold packaging includes never-beforeseen vintage photos, as well as the original artwork and insert, all tidied up and ready to meet Mom and Dad. Free download (with one extra track) is included."
