Interstellar Overdrive (Melvins)

Interstellar Overdrive is an EP by The Melvins, released by Man's Ruin Records in September 1997, limited to 5000 copies. The EP is recorded in the same sessions as the 1996 album Stag as "Bar-X-The-Rocking-M" is the same song from the album, while "Tipping The Lion B" would be an alternate version of "Tipping The Lion". The title track of the EP would be a cover of the iconic Pink Floyd song. Notably both "Interstellar Overdrive" and "Tipping The Lion" would appear on the 2001 album Electroretard.
