Melvins Open Album(s) Up For Remix: Merzbow Takes a Chop

Posted By on Thu, Jul 9, 2009 at 11:28 AM

Who needs to remix a single song when you can cut, past, hammer, screw, and otherwise distort an entire album to your personal liking? The Melvins will unleash Chicken Switch this September, a CD of revised visions of entire Melvins records. The band handed off permission to remix one--and in some cases, multiple--albums to Eye Yamatsuka, Matmos, Lee Ranaldo, Merzbow, and 11 other sonic tweakers willing to put their music through new shredders. The results should be interesting, to say the least.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
