A Melvins Primer

Everett True, Melody Maker, 2 October 1993

Once, MELVINS were the loudest, heaviest and slowest band on the Pacific West Coast, loved by few, feared by many. For years, they devastated audiences across America with their own unique brand of sludge metal. Then, roadie and major fan, KURT COBAIH, formed a band. The rest is history. Now, Kurt has produced their debut album for Atlantic and Melvins are poised on the brink of the unlikeliest of successes. EVERETT TRUE, clearly thrown by his sojourn in Disneyland, presents their A-Z.
