Dumb Numbers and the Melvins join forces for an unusual release – a three-song single, dubbed the ‘Broken Pipe’ EP (April 29, Joyful Noise Recordings), which arrives via a sawblade-shaped, limited-edition vinyl 12”. The title track is streaming now (https://lnk.to/BrokenPipe) or listen via YouTube below.
The collection, which is not the first time the musicians have partnered together (see their 2015 JNR split series), also finds The Jesus Lizard’s David Yow lending his vocals to the track, So-Called Solid Objects, and longtime Melvins’ production partner, Toshi Kasai, remixing the song Harvel.
“I’m severely honoured to work with Buzz and Dale on this release,” says Dumb Numbers’ Adam Harding. “I actually wrote one of the songs in 1997 after seeing the Melvins play in my hometown of Geelong, Australia. I never dreamed that 20 years later I would get to record it with them.”
Pre-orders for the 1200-piece, hand-numbered release are available now (https://www.joyfulnoiserecordings.com/products/broken-pipe-ep), with the EP also available digitally.
