The Melvins Unveil ‘Everybody Loves Sausages’ Covers Album

The Melvins-Everybody Loves Sausage
Ipecac Recordings

Ever wonder how the Melvins came up with the sound they did over the years? You can take a peek under their collective hoods April 30 as the band lays out their influences for fans with the new covers album, ‘Everybody Loves Sausages.’

Melvins leader Buzz Osbourne explains, “This record will give people a peek into the kind of things that influence us musically. We REALLY like all of these songs along with the bands who actually wrote this stuff because first and foremost, we are HUGE music fans.”

The eclectic selection of covers includes cuts from rock icons like David Bowie (‘Station to Station’), Queen (‘Best Friend’) and The Kinks (‘Attitude’) alongside some lesser known songs from Venom (‘Warhead’), The Scientists (‘Set It on Fire’) and Throbbing Gristle (‘Heathen Earth’).

In addition, the Melvins have invited a number of musicians to join them in their covers fun. Neurosis’ Scott Kelly, Tweak Bird’s Caleb Benjamin, Mudhoney’s Mark Arm, Blondie’s Clem Burke, Jello Biafro and Kevin Rutmanis, JG Thirlwell and Tom Hazelmeyer are among the guests on the disc.

While the album is billed as a proper Melvins disc (with Osborne, Dale Crover, Jared Warren and Coady Willis taking part), there are a handful of tracks recorded in the band’s Melvins Light incarnation, which features Osborne, Crover and Trevor Dunn.
