20 years ago, on 1st April 1999 Ipecac Records was formed to release Fantômas's debut release (a band featuring Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Trevor Dunn and Buzz Osborne from Melvins). During that time, Buzz said,said, "We told Greg that if they wanted to start a label then the Melvins would love to be involved. We asked if he would be interested in doing a trilogy of releases within one year and they said no problem." That year the Melvins released The Maggot, The Bootlicker and The Crybaby via Ipecac.
Now for Ipecac's 20th anniversary, two thirds of the infamous trilogy are being packaged together in a gatefold double-LP package - with The Maggot pressed on white coloured vinyl and The Bootlicker on double-mint green coloured vinyl.
