Fantômas' DELIRIUM CORDIA has arrived ! Even Rolling Stone magazine loves it!
In other Fantômas related news, the touring plans are coming together. Look for a US tour starting March 25 in southern cali and ending in LA on April 22. (rumor is that Melt Banana will be one of the openers!) Then starting May 5th the band will begin a 4 week European jaunt until they have to hand Dave back to Slayer.
Looking for some stimulating reading material? So are we. But if you want something mindless and entertaining pick up the 2 new copies of Soda Pressed magazine out of England. Issue 5 features a story "on the road with the Melvins" and issue 6 includes interviews with NoMeansNo, Adam Jones (Tool) and Mark Mothersbaugh(Devo). Worth a read. www.sodapressed.moonfruit.com

Just to answer a couple popular questions.
1) the paperback version of the upcoming Melvins book (including CD retrospective) will indeed be available at cool record stores worlwide.
2) the hardcover limited version will be available only at Melvins shows and at our webstore.
It is time to celebrate! The self proclaimed "greatest band in the history of music", the mighty MELVINS celebrate their 20th anniversary this March. Yes, beleive it or not it was 20 years ago on March 9th 1984 in Olympia Washington, the very first Melvins show. To celebrate we are releasing a very special coffee table book called "NEITHER HERE,NOR THERE" on March 2nd. This is an amazing retrospective highlighting artwork from their releases, ruminations from the band and their friends and a CD compilation featuring tracks from all their releases only available in this book.
As if this was not enough, the Melvins will be doing a mini celebration tour on the west coast of the US. Dates are posted in the calendar section now. At these shows you will be able to buy a special, limited edition, overpriced, hardcover, version of the book. Join the party!!!!!
How many other rock bands have survived 20 years and are still relevant?
