nsI'd like to take a minute to discuss the fact that a long awaited Melvins remix album is set to be released on Ipecac this September. I'm guessing they chose this year to release it to be part of their 25th anniversary celebration. This is very exciting news for fans of the Melvins, noise, or heavy music in general!
"The Melvins will release Chicken Switch, the long rumored (since 2003) remix cd with a twist, on Sept. 29 via Ipecac Recordings. Unlike usual remix cds where the remixer is given a single track to work with, for Chicken Switch each remixer was given a full album to work with and pull from to create their track (and in some cases, more than one full album was used as source material). The song names were also newly selected by their remixer.
