Melvins limited-edition 8-LP box set on sale TODAY; superfans assemble!

Like a long-forgotten pirate treasure suddenly washed up on the glistening shores of the internet comes Endless Residency, a limited-edition, crazy rare Melvins 8-LP box set of live recordings from the legendary hard rockers’ January residency at Los Angeles club Spaceland (now going by the name of Satellite). But get out your metal detectors, wacked-out hippie beachcombers and stoner rock superfans, because this shit ain’t cheap. If you head on over to Rock Is Hell to wage noble battle against roving online hordes of Melvins completists, you can be expecting to drop a cool €130 on these silkscreened little gems.

It’s important to note that you should leave the swashbuckling at home, though. The competition may be tough — there are only 500 copies available — but Rock Is Hell will only allow you to purchase one copy per order. Ordering started up at 6 PM in Austria (you do the conversion), so get out your pocket watches/sundials/what-have-you and figure out what time it is where YOU are and count your doubloons. Hear that? Across the ocean, these onyx-like black discs of sonic thunder are calling your name like a seashell held to the ear. And yeah, you know there’s an even more limited run involving colored vinyl. Orange, to be exact. Fifty copies, to be even exacter. ORANGE. Buzzo’s favorite color (maybe). The color of gallantry. The color that’s kind of close to gold. Pirate gold. Record collector gold. Melvins fan gold. Also golden: the charming artwork by Mackie Osborne. Orders ship at the end of September; check out some tourdates from their Euro tour while you’re waiting.
