Melvins - Night Goat / Adolescent Wet Dream 7" (1992)

Re-up on request. I'll upload the other ones if requested too since I have some other priorities. I'm not sure the Melvins survive to their past grandeur but anyway they have done enough to deserve eternal respect. Catch the goat here.

This is the first of a series of Melvins singles and EPs. Don't know whether they are rare or expensive and I don't really care, I want the Melvins to be in FS next to the Bastards and some other noise bands of the great 1988-1994 period. Of course the Melvins are much more than a noise band of this small time span, and can be considered the fairies leaning over the doom and the grunge craddles. But it's true that for me their creative peak was reached during this period. Since I go to see them play 5 of the EP-LP tomorrow in Paris, and listen to them constantly for the last 2 weeks, it's normal some of it appears here. For the first post, I chose one of their greatest tracks, "Night Goat", in its first issued version (there will be another one on Houdini one year later and many more live later). It's like waves from a noise ocean crashing on our ears and minds, it's like an orgasm coming in that we are trying to delay for increasing the sensation. The band was on the verge to be signed by Atlantic and to face their only short trip in the corporate business. I can't imagine music more timeless than this. The Buzz picture below is from 1992.
