Title: Melvins-lite
Post by: Mad Arab on May 30, 2011, 06:41:00 PM
Buzz, Dale, Trevor...I wonder what great things we will hear from this? It would be cool to hear them go acoustic and come up with some bizzare stuff. Laid back Bootlicker type stuff with upright bass.

Or does the "lite" simply mean without Coady and Jared?

I'm excited about this project.

When they've said Melvins Lite before, it referred to them without Jared and Coady.

I hope this isn't a limited big city tour like the residency gigs. This shit better come to the northeast and upstate NY. You'd think there'd be alot of Bootlicker material to play, and who knows what else. Not expecting or wanting them to go all jazzbo improv or anything. Just stripped down songs w/ Trevor on the doghouse sounds awesome to me.

I'd like to see more Melvins-lite, although really it's just regular Melvins. The other Melvins should be Melvins-Bloat or something.

It would be very nice if they would come to Florida on the Melvins lite tour, though I am not going to hold my breath. Hell, playing down here in the ass hot and humidity might do them a bit of good. They can work off some of that Cracker Barrel....and I can stop bitching about wanting to see them live again.

Yes please!!! Especially with current gas prices. If I drove to the NYC, I'd have to buy a residency boxset and flip it just to pay for the trip. =P
