I read an intriguing post on themelvins.net BBS today, which reads:
Tool, Melvins, Ipecac Records
Something HUGE soon. Just wait. It WILL be worth it you prepubecent derelicts. Oh, and Melvins as a four-piece=BEST YET.
Is the big suprise some kind of Tool/Melvins collaboration to be released on Ipecac? Given the various record labels involved, this could go some way to explaining the delays in the surprise being released.
The thread also links back to the Adam Jones/King Buzz/Terry Bozzio project Adam mentioned a while ago, and speculates this may be the surprise? Not so sure about that one personally, as the Tool link is a little too weak there, and I expect the Big Thing will involve more Tool than just AJ.
Filed firmly in the rumour (but exciting) department for now…
