These three posters are going on the upcoming Melvins Lite tour in a month. The Beavis and Butthead parody and the "New Mutants" themed poster are all signed and numbered, one hundred copies were made of each of them. They will be ten dollars each.

The Miles Davis parody is multi colored and is printed on some heavy stock glossy paper. Fifty of these were made and they will be on sale for twenty five dollars each.

And there will also be copies of MANCHILD 6 as well as the usual homemade posters plus original art for sale.

And yes, the Melvins will have plenty of new cool stuff as well. It will be a merchandise wet dream or something.

See you all soon..

After finally being suckered into fatherhood with the birth of his daughter Willow, Brian Walsby finally says, “goodbye punk rock, hello ad...ulthood” with the release of MANCHILD 6. Joining the ride is new publisher Will Butler of To Live ...a Lie Records. Will somehow believed in Brian enough to spend his own money on someone who obviously is out of touch, has betrayed the scene (any scene, take your pick) and has more or less moved on. Or has he? Despite the nonstop demands of diapers, real life responsibilities and taking the six year old Noble to school most of the time Brian has still somehow found precious time in coming up with new work. Filling out MANCHILD 6 are exclusive interviews straight from Brian’s blog (INTROVERTED LOUDMOUTH) from the last couple of years with lengthy interviews with Richmond’s TANNON PENLAND (LOINCLOTH), Raleigh’s own incredible songwriter KENNY ROBY, The split personality of SCOTT RADINSKY (PULLEY, TEN FOOT POLE, SCARED STRAIGHT) , guitarist for the DESCENDENTS and ALL STEPHEN EGERTON and a lengthy tour diary on the road with MELVINS right before Willow was born. Lots of good reading. So if you are at all interested in punk rock, fatherhood, MELVINS, potshots at people who deserve it, Mad magazine type satire and all of the other things that Brian Walsby is known for, MANCHILD 6 is a must have and a fine addition to a growing collection of hard work

This sweaty ruffian really likes issue number five, but for some reason I can't really figure out why.


And we also have not one but two ALL with second vocalist Scott Reynolds and one with current singer Chad Price. The PULLEY shirt also came out quite are the "press blurbs" for both shirts:

ALL, like the DESCENDENTS, are sort of a musical institution. Bill Stevenson (drums), Karl Alvarez (bass) and Stephen Egerton (guitar) have been playing together since the dawn of time. Together these three have created a sound that is often imitated but never duplicated. Throw in the oddball prog or heavy music tendencies and you have ALL. Even though these three sometimes have one Milo Aukerman behind the mike as the DESCENDENTS, ALL is on a similar path with any of thier three singers that they have had. These two shirts boast two of the band's different singers, the much loved Scott Reynolds and the equally great Chad Price. Each shirt is thematically similar but there are differences (hair length, wrinkles, etc etc). The DESCENDENTS shirt that we did last year went over very well and we are hoping that the ALL shirts will strike a similar chord in people.

A few of the gentlemen in Ventura County's longstanding band PULLEY are longtime friends of mine from waaay back. Both singer Scott Radinsky and guitarist Mike Harder were in SCARED STRAIGHT. I guess this dates us all. I wanted to do a PULLEY shirt because They’re a great band with a great attitude.They’re goal as a band is to have fun and they’re not trying make a living playing music. All things considered they have gone pretty far with that attitude. They have loads of fans all over the world who don't mind going nuts over a band who is only active part of the year. In the world of fickle music fans and short attention spans, PULLEY have pulled off the impossible.
This BAD NEWS BEARS: BREAKING TRAINING parody goes along quite nicely with Scott Radinsky's day job that he has held down for uh..a little while now.
