Listen to a New Cover from Members of Melvins, Blondie and the Sex Pistols


In the realm of “Metal People Doing Not Metal Shit,” Cabbage ‘N Mash, a collaboration between Melvins drummer Dale Crover and Melvins documentary director Bob Hannam have recruited members of the Sex Pistols and Blondie to cover a Small Faces song.

Cabbage ‘N Mash feature Blondie drummer Clem Burke, Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock and keyboardist/Melvins producer Toshi Kasai on the cover of “Song of a Baker.”

The song, like previously mentioned, is not metal at all, leaning into uplifting, psychedelic rock. Since Burke is featured on the song, Crover handles guitar duties. He told Heavy Consequence:

“Bob and I, being big Small Faces fans, thought it would be fun to pay tribute to the band. Somehow we managed to get Clem Burke from Blondie and Glen Matlock from the Sex Pistols to join us, as well as Toshi Kasai. I’ve always loved this track and really happy we got to record with these guys.”

Hanam adds:

“After countless conversations over the years about wanting to record a couple of our favorite songs by the Small Faces, last year we finally called up the dream rhythm section of our good friends Clem and Glen and headed to Toshi’s studio in Los Angeles to lay them down. What a huge personal honor to salute one of the greatest and most underrated band of the ’60s with such talented musicians.”

If psych rock isn’t your jam, you can see Melvins on a lengthy summer tour.
