"Three Men And A Baby" is the new album by MIKE & THE MELVINS It was supposed to come out 16 years ago. These are the facts we can be sure of: in 1998, around the time his band GODHEADSILO went on hiatus, bassist/vocalist Mike Kunka busied himself by tagging along on a tour with his friends the MELVINS. Somewhere along the way, MIKE & THE MELVINS - King Buzzo (guitar/bass/vocals), Dale Crover (drums/vocals) and Kevin Rutmanis (bass/vocals), at the time - decided to make a record together, and gave the project the imaginative moniker MIKE & THE MELVINS. Sub Pop, ever on the hunt for music's next big thing, enthusiastically agreed to fund and release the super-group's debut, and recording commenced sometime in 1999. It's at this point that things get hazy. The incomplete recording languished on a shelf from 1999 until 2015, when, much to everyone's surprise, the involved parties reconvened, finished the damn thing, and delivered it post-haste to Sub Pop International Headquarters. So, about the record? MIKE's signature bass crunch and vocals are all over it and the MELVINS are in fine form. It has everything from hefty noise-rock churn to a Public Image Ltd. song to cough-syrup blues to deconstructed black metal. Neither MELVINS nor GODHEADSILO fans will be disappointed.
