Eclectic rocker Beck and former teen star Leif Garrett are
among the artists who will contribute to a concept album by sludge-metal
veterans the Melvins. Crybaby, due in November, will
feature various guests adding to completed Melvins tracks, according to
Jennifer Fisher, a spokesperson for Ipecac Records. Garrett will
contribute vocals to a cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
The album is part of a trilogy -- along with The Maggot and
The Bootlicker -- the Melvins plan to release this year.
