The Record Is The Cymbal?

Dale Crover and Joyful Noise Recordings present a groundbreaking innovation in modern vinyl record/musical instrument hybridization with the limited edition release of “Thunder Pinky.” You can see the instructional video for the piece below.

The single, which comes from Crover’s recently released solo album, The Fickle Finger of Fate, is a playable, custom-designed and lathe cut 6.9” splash cymbal, hand-crafted by sub-amateur cymbalsmith Michael Dixon. The release has of course sold out, however the concept is so cool.

The Crover/Joyful Noise Recordings partnership had previously birthed the highly collectible, and quickly sold out, Skins release, a 12-sided record featuring six spindle holes and 12 pieces of music.

Crover has a busy remainder of the year, with North American Melvins’ tour dates stretching through early October followed by a double-header of the Melvins and Redd Kross (Crover plays drums in both bands) trekking overseas to both Europe and Australia. Dates are below.
