In 1996, the Melvins and Amphetamine Reptile delivered one 7" single every month of the year in quantities limited to 800 worldwide. AmRep handily compiled all 24 sides on the two-CD set Singles 1-12, which was of likewise limited release. The package features alternate mixes (like the intentionally obtuse versions of songs they submitted to Atlantic Records); some swell cover tunes (they manage to speed up the already hardcore "Lexicon Devil" by early Hollywood punks the Germs and slow down the at-a-snails pace "Way of the World" by slowcore pioneers Flipper); live improvisational endurance tests performed by these perennial openers in reaction to playing in front of crowds who could care less about them; plus assorted outtakes, one-offs, and other tomfoolery (their smirking take on Brit-pop, "In the Rain," is ironically catchy). Necessary material for fanatics and collectors, Singles 1-12 betrays not only the Melvins' metal/punk roots, but their ability to be both frightening and hilarious.
