The Melvins Merge Pink Floyd and Blondie For Incredible Mix of In The Flesh

In 1976, Blondie released ‘ In The Flesh’. The song was originally the b-side of Blondie’s debut single ‘X Offender’ but when Ian Meldrum promoted the b-side instead of the a-side ‘In The Flesh’ became a hit in Australia.

Three years later, and totally unrelated to the Blondie song, Roger Waters wrote the song ‘The Show?’ as the opening track to the upcoming Pink Floyd concept album ‘The Wall’. The title was changed to ‘In The Flesh?’ during the recording of The Wall.

Jump ahead to 2019 where you are about to hear an incredible merger of the Blondie and Pink Floyd classics.

The new recreation of The Wall is being made available in Australia via Philip Israel’s Possum Records in association with New York’s Magnetic Eye Records.

For ‘The Wall (Redux)’ every song from the Pink Floyd masterpiece has undergo revision by a contemporary rock artist or act including Mark Lanegan.

The Melvins reimagined ‘In The Flesh’ is an absolutely creative new way to showcase the Pink Floyd opener like it has never been done before.
