This limited edition of 1500 units neon green and white splatter double 12" gatefold package with 2 sided insert includes the 4 previously unreleased tracks from last year’s triple 10” set. This new version is pressed at 45 RPM for the heaviest audio possible.

Godzilla’s Eatin’ Dust + 4 is the most popular release in Fu Manchu’s 29 year recorded history. It is the combination of what were originally 2 distinct 10” releases: Godzilla (1997) and Eatin’ Dust (1999).

Last year, Scott Hill (vocals/guitar) found the original tapes from the Godzilla recording sessions produced by Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age/Kyuss) and unearthed a secret that had been in his garage since 1996…The band had recorded 4 songs that had never been released.

These extra songs are early versions of “Grendel, Snowman,” “Strolling Astronomer” and “Urethane” (whose final versions appeared on 1997’s The Action Is Go) and a cover of Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak” (which is a different version than the one which was released on 7” in 1998).

The songs line up perfectly with the original tracklist, which includes the band’s crowd pleasing cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s “Godzilla” and fan favorites “Eatin’Dust” and “Mongoose” (which was featured in a Super Bowl commercial for Toyota and included in the TV series “Sons Of Anarchy” and the films “Boondock Saints II” and “The Hot Chick”).
