Title: Residency Shows Coming To UK/Europe
Post by: Candy Dazzle on May 30, 2011, 01:27:13 PM
Piccadilly Records mentioned in their lowdown of the Sugar Daddy cd that Melvins were bringing their residency shows to the UK & Europe in the summer.

Someone mentioned a while back that Melvins may be playing Studio 24 in Edinburgh???? I'll go bananas if they do a two night residency in Edinburgh.

Of course I'll go bananas if they do a two night residency in Glasgow too.

I'll go mad as a cut snake if they do a two night residency in Edinburgh AND Glasgow.

Looking forward to finally seeing the tour listings for UK & Europe.......surely it has to be penciled in shortly.

I'll go bananas AND mad as cut snake if they come here to the Netherlands.. Wouldn't be suprised if a bunch of european dates appear on the net soon becouse of the show in France, altough Dale said they probably will do europe in the fall.

That would be awesome for you guys! I thought Big Biz are doing a separate tour this summer..

Buzz said that they are toying with doing some Melvins Lite shows with Trevor Dunn on Stand-up Bass (Which sounds awesome..) -Maybe They head for Europe after that..

Any plans for the rest of the year?

Buzz Osborne: It looks like Big Business is going to do a tour this Summer.

Coady Willis: Then we are talking about the Melvins playing Europe in the fall.

Buzz Osborne: Yeah, we are going to play some European shows in the fall, and that should take us to the end of the year, pretty much.



ps: i doubt they're doing a two night residency in europe as well but hope to be wrong

I read in an interview with Buzz on the eve of their Australian tour as part of the Soundwave festival earlier this year that they would be coming back here for a headline tour later in the year. But might not be on the cards now who knows.

Here it is:

AU: My first question is, are you looking forward to Soundwave and do you like coming down to Australia?

B: No, I hate everything about Soundwave and I hate everything about Australia.

AU: That

If they do a two night residency in the UK I bet it will be an ATP thing and only in London, with overpriced tickets. I hope I' wrong though.

think you're right. i haven't seen the melvins since 2008 now. frankly unreasonable behaviour from a band i saw 13 times in 4 years previous to that. i wonder how they sleep at night.

I remember a few years ago I tried to play the Okie From Muskogee and Rambin' Man covers for my mom and her husband. The only response I got from either one of them was when he asked "what makes you listen to a band called The Melvins?" To which I replied, "what makes you listen to someone named Merle Haggard?" I asked their opinion on the cover songs and they both agreed that, while not as good as the originals, they were "not bad".

One of the reasons that the Melvins are so great is because parents hate it.

When my mother heard my Led Zep IV she told my 11 year old ass, "You're not getting any more records like this."

Guess what? By the time I was 15, I had everything they'd put out, paid for with pocket money supplied by her.

My Mum likes Melvins and she's 69. Van The Man is number 1 for her though.........so........Melvins should do a friggin stompin tune with Van Morrison on vocals. That'd be interesting?
