Gluey Porch Treatments is the debut album of the Melvins. The album was released in 1987 through Alchemy Records. The original release was vinyl only. This album was later released on tape with the Six Songs EP through Boner Records and appears as bonus material on the CD version of Ozma. Tracks 18–29 can only be found on the 1999 Ipecac Recordings re-release; these songs are taken from a boombox demo.
"Steve Instant Newman" and "As It Was" are re-recordings of "Disinvite" and "Easy As It Was" respectively, as heard on the Six Songs EP.
"Leeech" was originally a song by Green River entitled "Leech." When Melvins founder Buzz Osborne asked a member of Green River why they never played the song, the reply was that the band thought it was too repetitive and was therefore dropped from their set. The song was essentially given to the Melvins on the spot.
The song "Eye Flys" appears on the soundtrack for the film, Kurt Cobain: About A Son and the Melvins live album "Sugar Daddy Live". "Glow God," "Big As a Mountain" and "Heaviness of the Load" appear on the Alchemy Records compilation album Peace Thru Chemistry.
