The Melvins have released one last taste of their upcoming Melvins 1983 release, Working With God (Feb. 26, Ipecac Recordings), releasing the song “1 Fuck You” – an ode to the American singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson. Buzz says “Why haven’t we recorded this song before now? It says it all. Nilsson was a genius!!” This song is not the only tribute piece across the album, “I Fuck Around” being a re-imagined cover of The Beach Boys – can you spot any more?
Incoming this weekend – the band’s Valentine’s Day (Feb.14) live streaming event dubbed “Divine Monkeyshines: Valentine’s Day Special.” Combining a musical performance with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the band members (Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover, and Steven McDonald), the Melvins put a unique spin on the at-home concert experience. Tickets and exclusive merchandise are available (https://melvins.veeps.com/).
“Round two of Melvins TV!” said Osborne. “Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Five different songs plus band interviews and other cool stuff. All this fine entertainment for only $5.”
