    Melvins - Pinkus Abortion Technician

    http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/mel...lbum-in-april/

    MELVINS will release their new album, "Pinkus Abortion Technician", on April 20 via Ipecac Recordings. The disc features both MELVINS' regular bass player Steven McDonald (REDD KROSS, OFF!) and BUTTHOLE SURFERS' Jeff Pinkus on bass.

    "With our upcoming release, we double your bass player with Steven McDonald and Jeff Pinkus holding down the bottom," explains Dale Crover. "It's an experiment in the low end of the aural spectrum where we asked ourselves, 'Would it work?' 'Could it work??' 'Should it work???' The answers were yes, yes and YES!"

    "We've never had two bass players," adds Buzz Osborne. "We've had two drummers and two guitar players, so it makes total sense to now have two bass players. We'll be taking this two-prong bass attack on the road as well which should prove to be interesting.

    "'Pinkus Abortion Technician' is a radically great record and was a stone groove to record. We drank a lot of coffee and enjoyed each other's company.

    "I like Steven and Jeff a great deal. I admire their bass playing and singing and both of them can grill a mean steak."

    "Pinkus Abortion Technician" track listing:

    01. Stop Moving To Florida
    02. Embrace The Rub
    03. Don't Forget To Breathe
    04. Flamboyant Duck
    05. Break Bread
    06. I Want To Hold Your Hand
    07. Prenup Butter
    08. Graveyard

    "Stop Moving To Florida" is a medley of the James Gang's "Stop" and BUTTHOLE SURFERS' "Moving To Florida", the band also covers THE BEATLES' "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and BUTTHOLE SURFERS' "Graveyard" on the eight-song release. Pre-orders will be announced soon.

    And to think its coming out less than a year after a double album. These guy's can't be stopped, and they're always keeping it interesting, this time with the two bass players. Should sound amazing live.

    Wow, that's a really cool track. I've never gotten into the Melvins much. I might've seen them once, but I honestly can't remember. And that BS track is from my fave cd of theirs, too. Maybe I'll try to catch them in Chicago when they stop by.
