Ipecac to release a brand new Melvins remix album!

This autumn, the mighty MELVINS will release a record like never before entitled Chicken Switch.  This record is a 15-song remix CD with a twist because unlike usual remix CDs where the re-mixer is given a single track to work with, for Chicken Switch each re-mixer was given a full album to work with and pull from to create their track (and in some cases, more than one full album was used as source material). The song names were also newly selected by their re-mixer and here they are:

Track Listing
1.Washmachine Sk8tronics – Eye Yamatsuka
2.Emperor Twaddle Remix – Christoph Heemann
3.She Chokes Her Dying Breath and Does It In My Face – V/VM
4.AAHHH… – John Duncan
5.Linkshänder – Matmos
6.EggNog Trilogy” i)She’s Ivanhoe ii)Cancer iii)Inebriated – Lee Ranaldo
7.SNOW REM REM IBVZ – Merzbow
8.Prick Concrete / Revolution M – David Scott Stone
9.Queen (Electroclash Remix) – Panacea
10.The Silky Apple Butter of Youth – Sunroof!
11.4th Floor Hellcopter – Kawabata Makoto
12.disp_tx_skel_mach_murx – Farmersmanual
13.Overgoat – Void Manes
14.Over from Under the Dog, Girl & Boy Treatment – RLW
15.Hard Revenge Milly Bloody Battle VS. The Melvins Ozmatized Gore Police (Feat: Cardopusher of the Five Deadly Venoms) – Speedranch

As you can see, for the re-mixers themselves the band picked an almighty motley crew: from Japanoise legend Merzbow to breakcore king Speedranch, Sonic Youth moonlighter Lee Ranaldo to dark electro fellow Panacea.

I strongly recommend this album. Speedranch and Eye Yamatsuka are particularly strong remixes.

The question remains, whatever next for the Melvins?
