Melvins - Gluey Porch Treatments LP (Lime Green Vinyl)


In correlation with the release of their new album Working With God, Melvins offer upcolored vinyl LP reissues of 1987's Gluey Porch Treatments and 2002's Hostile Ambient Takeover, the latter of which appears on the format for the first time. "It's hard to categorise the Melvins, which is probably why they have been at turns both hugely influential yet also overlooked. From Seattle and formed in 1983, they have constantly shifted and shuffled through line-up changes and musical musings. Inspired by punk, hardcore, metal, avant-garde, cartoon and grand guignol, they have released a succession of infuriatingly incandescent albums, beginning with 1987's debut Gluey Porch Treatments...In one respect, this album is all over the place, reaching from sludge to thrash, via a Green River cover called 'Leeech'. It was stark, stinking bonkers. But somehow works. Because the band were constantly on the move, and yet kept a cohesion, almost against their better judgement" (Loudersound).
