Band: The Melvins
Song: “Stop Moving To Florida”
Album: Pinkus Abortion Technician
Release Date: April 20th, 2018
Label: Ipecac Recordings

“Stop Moving To Florida” is a medley of the James Gang’s “Stop” and Butthole Surfers’ “Moving To Florida”

Drummer Dale Crover said of the album:

“With our upcoming release, we double your bass player with Steven McDonald AND Jeff Pinkus holding down the bottom. It’s an experiment in the low end of the aural spectrum where we asked ourselves, ‘would it work?’ ‘could it work??’ ‘should it work???’ The answers were yes, yes and YES!”

Frontman Buzz Osborne adds:

“We’ve never had two bass players. We’ve had two drummers and two guitar players so it makes total sense to now have two bass players. We’ll be taking this two-prong bass attack on the road as well which should prove to be interesting. Pinkus Abortion Technician is a radically great record and was a stone groove to record. We drank a lot of coffee and enjoyed each other’s company. I like Steven and Jeff a great deal. I admire their bass playing and singing and both of them can grill a mean steak.”
