Melvins to play 1990s glory LPs live in London

By | Published on Thursday 28 February 2013


Esteemed ‘sludge’ creatures Melvins are going to play four of their most infamous back-LPs over two shows in May, both at London’s Brixton Electric. The first (19 May) will comprise 1992’s ‘Lysol’ and 1993’s ‘Houdini’, whilst the other (20 May) will feature ‘Bullhead’ and ‘Stoner Witch’ (circa 1991 and 1994 respectively).

Before all that, on 29 Apr, the band will release a new LP, ‘Everybody Loves Sausages’, featuring – not sausages – but just-as-meaty renditions of tracks like Queen’s ‘Best Friend’, The Kinks’ ‘Attitude’ and Roxy Music’s ‘In Every Dream Home’.

Say they: “This record will give people a peak into the kind of things that influence us musically. We REALLY like all of these songs along with the bands who actually wrote this stuff, because first and foremost we are HUGE music fans”.
