Two of the Melvins' earliest releases in one sweet package! First up is Eggnog. Originally released as a 10" in 1991, this EP is composed of three quick blasts on the A side and the side long epic of "Charmicarmicat" on the B side. There are tons of stops and starts, along with a wealth of feedback throughout the openers. We're taking on a journey through slowed down sludge with "Charmicarmicat." Lice-All, formerly known as Lysol and then changed to a self titled release for obvious reasons, makes up the second record in this set. It's one long, slow, loud blob of drones, moans and fuzztones. The opening endless power chord shimmer influenced Sleep, Sunn O))), and countless other sludge metal drone freaks for years to come. Both albums have been remastered and are back on vinyl for the first time in 15 years. The gatefold packaging houses never before seen photos, as well was original art work and inserts from both albums.
