Melvins / Napalm Death Single

Postby drterror666 » Tue Aug 06, 2013 11:51

As everyone should know, Napalm Death did a cover of To Go Off And Things on the seriously limited split 12" with Melvins. I'll be surprised if anyone in the UK got it, because it was priced at $25.00 (approx. £16.00) and, if I'm correct, shipping pushed it up to $41.00 (approx. £27.00)! Plus, there was the fact that it sold out very, very quickly.

So, has anyone heard it yet, let alone received a copy?
Hello little doggy,
My, you are a nice dog,
What did you just say then?
You could do some tricks! Oh, good, then will you show me?
My word that's a good one!
Would you like a cigarette?
No you can't, they're bad for you!

Oh. I've been looking forward to hearing that for ages! Seems odd that they'd go to that effort for it only to be heard by so few people - hopefully it'll be releases as a download at some point...

Bah. Good for the Melvins having this little cottage industry of expensive collectible limited silk-screened instant collectible artifacts, and enough fans to make it go. But yeah, a download or a regular release for the rest of us would be nice...

I'm pretty sure Shane mentioned getting it released independent of this back when news of recording it broke.

It came out through Amphetamine Reptile in the US, so that's why it may not have been mentioned on the ND website. Still a shame, though.

I just read on Facebook that there are plans to release it as an MP3 as a fundraiser for Tim :D

Me to. I checked every now and again since last Oct for news of this release, then bang, a random check last weekend and there it wasn't :( TBH, i couldn't afford it anyway even if i'd been quicker of the mark 6 days previously but an Mp3 or just a uk released Napalm b-side wouldn't go amiss. WANNA HEAR IT NOW THOUGH. Wish some bugger would stick it up on youtube an not just on fvcking Discogs which seems to be the default setting for a certain type of self pleasuring collector nowadays :(

last one out turn off the lights.

Definitely a really good cover version musically; it's even a bit Voivod-like at the beginning! Barney's barking delivery isn't really doing it for me, though.
