Melvins

The Maggot & The Bootlicker

    On 1st April 1999 Ipecac Records was formed to release Fantômas debut release (a band featuring Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Trevor Dunn and Buzz Osborne from Melvins). During that time, Buzz said, “We told Greg that if they wanted to start a label then the Melvins would love to be involved. We asked if he would be interested in doing a trilogy of releases within one year and they said no problem.” That year the Melvins released The Maggot, The Bootlicker and The Crybaby via Ipecac. Now for Ipecac’s 20th Anniversary, they're reissuing two-thirds of the infamous “trilogy” by packaging The Maggot & The Bootlicker together. Since then, Melvins have gone on to release almost thirty releases on Ipecac, and continue to tour the world every year, most recently in support of their 2018 release, Pinkus Abortion Technician.

    Mike Patton & Jean-Claude Vannier

    Corpse Flower

      Mike Patton has teamed up with legendary French producer Jean-Claude Vannier (Serge Gainsbourg) for an album of sleazy pop rock that will appeal to fans of Patton’s projects such as Peeping Tom, Lovage and Mr. Bungle.

      Pinkus Abortion Technician

        Melvins released their album ‘Pinkus Abortion Technician’ in Spring 2018. It featured both ongoing Melvins bassplayer Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) and Butthole Surfers and occasional Melvins bottom ender Jeff Pinkus on bass. ‘Stop Moving To Florida’ is a medley of the James Gang’s ‘Stop’ and Butthole Surfers’ ‘Moving To Florida’. The band also cover The Beatles’ ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ and Butthole Surfers’ ‘Graveyard’ on the eight-song release.

        Dead Cross emerged out of a series of impractical schemes, fallen-through plans and last-minute musical experimentation. Shows were scheduled before a single song was written, fans were formed before even one show was played. The chaos of its creation seems apt; after all, the band is comprised entirely of artists who have thrived playing tightly-coiled turmoil - intelligent dissonance disguised as disorder.

        Consisting of Mike Patton (Faith No More, Fantomas, Mr. Bungle), Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Misfits, Suicidal Tendencies), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox, Head Wound City) and Michael Crain (Retox), the impressive, expansive and eclectic list of prior bands collectively played in would be enough to ensure the unyielding ferocity of the music... but a resume isn’t necessary, here. Dead Cross stands on their own, speaking volumes with their multilayered evil-genius vocals, manic guitar riffs and brutal rhythms.

        Melvins

        A Walk With Love & Death

          The dual albums find the trio of Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Steve McDonald showcasing two distinct sides to the band’s music: Death, a proper Melvins’ release and Love, the score to the Jesse Nieminen directed, self-produced short also titled A Walk With Love and Death

          “This was a huge undertaking,” explained band ringleader Buzz Osborne. “All three things: the album, the soundtrack and the film are benchmarks for us.”

          Drummer Dale Crover added, “A Walk With Love and Death is one giant, dark, moody, psychotic head trip! Not for the faint of heart. You'll sleep with the lights on after listening.”

          The albums, which include guests Joey Santiago (The Pixies), Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes/Crystal Fairy) and Anna Waronker (That Dog), were co-produced with engineer Toshi Kosai.

          FORMAT INFORMATION

          2xColoured LP Info: 2LP set features two separate gatefold vinyl housed in a sturdy box. Death is on Opaque Pink vinyl, Love is on Opaque Violet (there is no black vinyl for this release).

          Crystal Fairy are a new band featuring Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes), Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (Mars Volta, At The Drive In), King Buzzo (The Melvins, Fantomas) and Dale Crover (The Melvins, Altamont). It might seem like an unlikely musical match until you hear the primal pounding energy that’s psychedelic, psychotic, off kilter, unsafe and uncommon.

          The whole idea for Crystal Fairy began when The Melvins and Le Butcherettes toured together and The Melvins started doing the song ‘Rebel Girl’ with Teri at the end of their set.

          Teri sings, plays guitar and keyboards, Omar plays bass, Buzzo plays guitar and Dale’s on drums. It’s simple, sturdy and perfect. Between the four members they have like 150 years of musical experience and something like 40,000 records. Crystal Fairy are different, a stunning combination of punk, metal, psycho rock, blood rock and rabid rhythmic excitement.

          Mark Lanegan first rose to fame with his band the Screaming Trees in the '90s. Like other noted artists Lanegan has carved out a strong identity of his own as a vocalist and songwriter informed by the blues but willing to take his darkly poetic sensibility wherever his muse was pointing him, from hard rock to electronica.

          At the time, The Screaming Trees had recently disbanded and Lanegan was in the early years of his solo offerings (at this point he had released a mere five solo albums). The songs on Houston (Publishing Demos 2002), were written, recorded, then shelved until now, with the release of this12-song collection of previously unreleased demos via Ipecac.

          Justice Records' Randall Jamail produced the album. Art was done by The Mekons' Jon Langford.

          The Unsemble is a collaboration of three very notable musical personalities....

          You may know of Duane Denison (guitar, keyboards) from his work with Tomahawk and The Jesus Lizard, among others. He's in fine form here. You might know of Alexander Hacke (bass, electronics) from his work with Einsturzende Neubauten, Crime and the City Solution, and his film and production work. He's at the top of his game these days. You probably don't know of Brian Kotzur (drums, keyboards) but you should. He has worked with Silver Jews and Harmony Korine, both quite popular with indie hipsters, slackers, etc. He's got moves, just you wait.

          Recorded in the summer of 2012, these 15 instrumental tracks are the result of an intense 2 week period of sonic exploration. Some are carefully composed and arranged, others are freely improvised. The moods range from calm and dreamy to agitated and chaotic.

          This supergroup is transcending far beyond their past projects and cultivating a brand new sound. When asked about the project, Denison stated in a 2012 interview with Rolling Stone: “We wanted to work on something that was typically not what we do.” He continued, “something that’s not so rock and riff-based and overdriven in that way.”

          The Unsemble, a 15-song collection recorded in Denison’s adopted hometown of Nashville, meets the legendary Jesus Lizard guitar player’s hopes of a more organic feel with the band effortlessly volleying between careful compositions and improvisation. The result is an album that is experimental, clever and inclusive of numerous subgenres and cultures.

          "If ever there was a soundtrack in search of its correspondent in the world of film, this album Guano Padano would definitely be in good company with the works of Fellini, Leone, Jarmusch and Sofia Coppola."

          It would not do much more than the words of Joey Burns of Calexico, referring to the band's first album, to best describe the world around which the band of Danilo Gallo (bass), Alessandro "Asso" Stefana (guitar) and Zeno De Rossi (drums), the latter also forces the band to Vinicio Capossela.

          The imagery is rich in nuances, just as the sunset of one of those western movies so much love that the three and now has provided inspiration for the main round which bind: there are morriconiane the atmosphere of the films of Sergio Leone, but also of dozens of smaller films that marked an unrepeatable Italian cinema season. And then the desert rock, country, folk, jazz cross, of course, the blues and even surf influences.

          The first eponymous album, released first for the U.S. Important Records (October 2009) and later in Italy for Tremoloa (April 2010), is a splendid example of the class of Guano Padano, accompanied for the occasion by a number of guests from Dizziness: Alessandro Alessandroni (whistling the unforgettable soundtracks morriconiane), Gary Lucas (guitarist Jeff Buckley and Captain Beefheart), Chris Speed (clarinet, collaborator of John Zorn etc.) and Bobby Solo, called upon to interpret an old song Hank Williams, Ramblin 'Man, with a master's touch.

          After a long series of accolades from the international press and also a valuable 45 rpm - Tremoloa in collaboration with Bronson - where have reread Our two classic westerns such as "Hey, man ... there Sabata, you closed! " and "The day of wrath", the Guano Padano are going to do their real comeback record with "2", easy way behind which lies another great job.

          Among American, echoes of the Middle and Far East, the night freight trains passing through Nashville and Cajun cuisine and flavors of Abruzzo, "2" is an album incredibly rich, almost to leaf through a photo album with passion until new and never predictable epiphanies. Around the trio were again gathered names of the highest level as those, among others, Marc Ribot (John Zorn, Tom Waits, etc..), Even Chris Speed, the versatile Mike Patton (who has included in its own project Stefana Mondo Cane), Paolo Botti (viola), Vincenzo Vasi (theremin to) and Paul Niehaus of Lambchop.
          *In short, the diligence of Guano Padano and 'coming in, carrying, once again, rare and valuable ...

          Fantomas

          Delirium Cordia

          Third release from Mike Patton's Fantomas, and this one showcases a quieter side of Fantomas. Possibly the soundtrack to a very dark fever induced nightmare, the momentary ambience is followed by chaos and confusion. Needless to say this won't be a daytime radio hit!!!
