Under the influence of Amphetamine Reptile

The indie record label brings back seminal alt-rock groups Mudhoney and the Melvins to celebrate AmRep Bash 13

Hazelmyer: To be honest, I've been too busy to get excited. The whole crew has to kick it out as we're not normally a music venue, so things like Bash 13 has us scrambling to get everything done — like order Porta Pottys and wristbands and the 4,000 other details. On top of that, I feel compelled to do six special releases and prints and T-shirt designs, which is ball-busting to say the least. Kind of a nice break though for the bars and all involved, and it shakes things up around here, which we like to do.

Osborne: Our normal bass player, Jared [Warren, from Big Business], is on paternity leave, so he's not going to be there with us. So we got the bass player from the Butthole Surfers to play with us, Jeff Pinkus. I'm going to see if we can't work in a Butthole Surfers cover — it would make sense, you know. You know, honestly, it was great to think back about the first time we met Mark and how long ago that was — and then to still be able to make music and have our bands play together in 2013? That's pretty fucking amazing.
