Have you guys been reading Coady's posts on twitter?

"Recording some new Melvins jams today with @toshikasai."

"All wired for recording! One song down today for drums."

the amrep splits are the tracks off Sugar Daddy though, Glen.

Nice and a cool snap there too! I think it's for a new album if i remember correctly.

hey, I'd be thrilled to be wrong.     

but the way that twit tweet reads it's just a couple and/or few tracks.  not a whole new album.

either way, I'll take whatever I can get.

i think i remember reading that they plan to record at year end and Jan/Feb.
the way i understand it: 13 splits will be the 13 sugar daddy tracks.
the new stuff will likely be used for an upcoming album (scion ep / or ipecac lp, ideally both).. i think buzz said they are going to do another full album in 2012?
does anybody know if they signed a multi album contract with ipecac, and by when it is fulfilled? did they sign a contract at all?? i think once they fulfilled that they will no longer release conventional albums.
Title: Re: New Melvins!
Post by: buddy holiday on December 14, 2011, 09:01:12 AM
conventional albums?

with that i did not mean the albums themselves but rather way they released; like every two years an album worth of 10 songs or whatever.
maybe they will do more frequent but smaller recording sessions and self release that as singles / eps with the help of amrep or alone.

I fear they may over-saturate the MELVINS SINGLES market if they take the idea too much further.   everything has a tipping point.

that being said, I'll still likely buy whatever the hell they offer me.

I'm pretty sure I read that they would be doing one more album and then releasing everything non-traditionally, whatever that means.  I'm a huge fan of getting hyped up for full albums and then getting blown away.  Smash the State just didn't have that same effect because it was so far under the radar but I did love that one.

I'm also pretty sure I read that Ipecac doesn't make bands sign contracts and you can record as much as you want with them.

Funny. Crackle Barrel is where I found that Sugar Daddy candy that I gave to Sniv. Stopped there in Ohio (bleeech) on the way home from Swans. I didn't even think they existed til I saw one at the shop!

I also noticed he's lost a lot of weight. I think it's cool, just so long as he leaves room for the evil.
We want a healthy Buzzo, right? Long live the KING!!!

I saw a couple pics on toshi's facebook of this practice session. I am unable to steal pictures from facebook on this work comp so I cannot share.   but feel free to look up toshi's facebook and you'll dig my pitch.
my guess is he's having his mumu taken in even as I type.

Yep. That looks like a left-handed drummer getting ready for a right-handed pull shot, with Buzz delivering a full toss. That will confuse 95% of the people here.

OK, so back to the topic...  Buzzo really said that the Melvins will only release one more full length album?   I remember hearing about the mini-album thing on Scion Records, and that it would be mp3-only or something. 
Title: Re: New Melvins!
Post by: glen on December 19, 2011, 01:38:01 PM
everything was a "maybe".  so I wouldn't be betting the farm on anything.   but if I were to guess I would say one more traditional recorded and released to be sold at your local record store album.    from there it's mp3's, etc.


but I remember when Dale had his first child and they were saying things like "alot less touring" and "shorter tours" becuase he would want to be closer to his family.   fortunately for all of us the bill collector didn't like that idea.  the real money to be made is on touring and merch stands.   so dale's family suffers and we are rewarded.   point is:  don't buy into every statement or idea. they don't always work out.

I'm sure they could release regular albums via iTunes and Google Music, Amazon store etc... surely would be better financially as you'd skip out on manufacturing costs and record labels/

Hopefully it's not the case though as I'd pirate the shit out of that since all on-line music stores are US only and I will not deal with iTunes as the greedy bastards are charging double the US prices even though the AUD is stronger than the USD.

everything was a "maybe".  so I wouldn't be betting the farm on anything.   but if I were to guess I would say one more traditional recorded and released to be sold at your local record store album.    from there it's mp3's, etc.


argh, MP3 is anything but a high quality format, the whole idea of selling such a shitty thing instead of a flac/wav file or a CD/vinyl is so mediocre... but what's even more mediocre is the fact that the people does buy it... but hey, in a world ruled by Justin Beiber and wachiturros, what more can you expect? they can hardly tell the difference between a fucking 128kbps MP3 and a high quality CD.

Save the mediocre waste for the chewers and suckers of the soil, for we are of a different breed, a musical race of atomic supermen with ears that have tuned into an acquired taste for that which is most high, the music of the gods. We are MELVINS fans!  [-o<

i just don't want to have to go on a wild goose chase to try and trace down new albums from the Melvins, but if they still take the time and money to record "official" studio albums, i'm guessing it won't solely be just super-limited quantity, $200 releases. that's all.

Well, unless they can tour all around the globe that's the mentality that must be changed. There's internet now and only because of that people from other countries want to get the same stuff too. It's time to start thinking worldwide and not just locally, the rules of the game are no longer the same... or like some people use to say: welcome to the 21st century.

Excellent, I am going to Build a theramin one of these days..A REAL TUBE theramin like The original design by LEO theramin...a Russian inventor back in the early 1920's..you can buy a MOOG theramin like this one for under 400 bucks.
There are a wide variety of theramins available in production currently, but nothing that sounds good to me, compared to the original 1920's Theramins. 

Theramin also Used the principal Theory of his invention to create automatic Doors, and an electronic Burglar alarm, Basically a theramin works like a vintage metal detector.

Professor theramin was Kidnapped back from the US, back to Moscow by Soviet agents, and I think His wife Clara did a great deal playing Theramin in an orchestra, pretty cool.

I didn't realize the melvins used a theramin, probably because they filtered the sound to make it sound more like a synth, Like the end of the Song on NWB, RIGHT before Dies Iraea you can hear it with the Drum fade out I THINK.

p.s. Everybody Smoke Pot

EPs are tough to define but it's definitely not anything that's under 45min.  If that was true then all pre-Never Say Die Black Sabbath albums would be considered EPs.

EPs are typically under 30min and/or contain less than 8 songs.  It gets confusing so it's probably best not to think about it too much and just call it what the band calls it.

Primus - ASNTTALP - 6 songs - 28:18 - EP
Melvins - Lysol - 5/6 songs - 31:21 - I've seen it classified as a LP and EP but usually a LP
Slayer - Reign in Blood - 10 songs - 28:56 - LP
Heroine Sheiks - Journey to the End of the Knife - 8 songs - 27:32 - LP
Nine Inch Nails - Broken - 8 songs - 33:09 - EP
Earth - Extra-Capsular Extraction - 3 songs - 32:21 - EP
Earth - Earth 2 - 3 songs - 73:00 - LP
Sunn O))) - Flight of the Behemoth - 5 songs - 51:27 - LP
Sunn O))) - Oracle - 3 songs - 80:55 - EP

Post by: Dumpster D on January 22, 2012, 06:19:41 PM
I will have you KNOW, once and for ALL, A traditional EP...should be around 12-24 minutes!

back in the good old days of yore, an EP would be useful if your band couldn't afford a whole album, you'd try to Squeeze as much material you could down on to a 7" or 10" record. The maximum amount of music you can fit on the A and B sides of a Record  size..times have changed since that was commonplace, and things have obviously always bounced around between various media.

Most bands who would write more than 45 minutes needed a double album, let's say an hour's worth, that was at one point Deemed the LP (long play) because up till a cetrain time, record speeds dropped from 78 Rpm, down to 33 and a half RPM, and a 12" used to only play about 10 minutes a side @78RMP (you might get 12 minutes I don't know)
they still remained in 12" size but now could play Longer...hence Long play.
thanks to Cd's we see a lot less Double albums than we used to that is for sure!

As to the EP discussion, certainly there isn't going to be a single answer, because the phrase really has no universal definition. But, I agree the debate is fun. (Although, I believe billboard has a very strict definition of what an ep is)

I'd say an EP is determined by the artists' intent when putting it out. If the artist feels that its designed to either be smaller statement, or statement where each song should be lingered over, it is an ep. Where the artist feels that the collection of songs fit together to tell a longer sonic narrative, its an lp.

Remember, Lard's first release was a 65 minute ep, but the circle jerks have a 14 minute album. And to em, the Lard release sounds like an ep and the Circle jerks release sounds like a full album.

Bride screamed Murder is the best soundtrack to Every War movie I've ever imagined. the music itself is like a firsthand glance into Being recruided into service. This is the kind of stuff I have always seen them doing better than anyone else could ever do it. I've always wanted to hear this album before It even came out.

You guys don't even know, This is by far one Deep album.

 It's  fantastic.

The emotional Energy of it is by far maximum intensity.

I definitely see a 'war' theme. from the military chant at the beginning
thru to the titles of some songs; Evil New War God, I'll Finish You Off
(killing the enemy?), Hospital Up (triage hospital?), Inhumanity & Death
(the atrocity of war?), the cover of My Generation (generations lost to war?),
PG x3 (seeking the peace of home after a campaign? but the memories
still piercing the soldier's mind with post-tramautic stress???)

I agree with Glen.  As I've said before, It's kind of like Black Flag's in my head.  Its not the best flag album but its still better than most albums other people make. 

 Conda: I thought there was a war theme in ASA.  Parts of civilized worm and a history of bad men remind me of war.  I can see it in TBSM too though.

I really wish they would use the title 'Beer Hippy' for a song or album or such. I think they were gonna call HAT that but changed their mind.

I take it back.  I thought it over and doomed would be a better song title than album title.  I like beer hippy in the same way. I still like the birthing queen for a song title and theirs is not yours for an album title. 
Stank Bug might be an option.

SCION A/V SET TO RELEASE NEW MELVINS EP, SCION A/V PRESENTS: THE BULLS & THE BEES, ON MAR. 13
 
Scion A/V Sponsoring Spring U.S. Tour
 

 
Feb. 23, Torrance, Calif. --  Scion A/V has partnered with the Melvins for an EP titled Scion A/V Presents: The Bulls & The Bees,  a five-song collection that marks the band's first original material since their 2010 album The Bride Screamed Murder.   The release will be available as a free download on Mar. 13 via Scion A/V's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/scionav (http://www.facebook.com/scionav)) with "The War On Wisdom" streaming this Friday on Pitchfork.com.
 
The Melvins formed in 1983, kicking off what would be a seismic shift in heavy music and focusing the epicenter of modern music firmly on the Pacific Northwest for the next decade plus.  The band blended punk, metal, hard rock  to create a new subgenre that has been tagged with a variety of labels including sludge, grunge and doom and won a cult of fans that have yet to waiver some twenty-nine years into the band's career.  Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover have been the band's constants (Crover joined in 1984) with Big Business' Jared Warren and Coady Willis joining the band in 2006 for (A) Senile Animal. 
 
"The Melvins have remained such a consistent presence in heavy music," says Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotions for Scion.  "It's an honor to have them create an original release for Scion A/V."
 
Osborne described Scion A/V Presents: The Bulls & The Bees  as "amazing in its noisy calm intensity."
 
Scion A/V Presents: The Bulls & The Bees Track Listing:
1.  The War on Wisdom
2.  We Are Doomed
3.  Friends Before Larry
4.  A Really Long Wait
5.  National Hamster

1.  The War on Wisdom

2.  We Are Doomed

3.  Friends Before Larry

4.  A Really Long Wait

5.  National Hamster

Wonder if they use the money which would normally be allocated for tv/magazine ads etc into these ventures instead. If so it's a very clever ploy and makes a lot of sense whether it helps sales or not.

I can't believe for one second that Scion thinks that releasing albums by obscure bands will somehow boost sales. Perhaps I'm naive but I just don't see it.

It may be integrated into a broader marketing plan that aims to promote Scion as a socially conscious corporation that recognizes the importance of art and culture but what does that have to do with selling cars?

Either way, I don't have a driver's licence so I don't see myself driving one of those any time soon. I live in the city, I don't need no fucking car.

It may be integrated into a broader marketing plan that aims to promote Scion as a socially conscious corporation that recognizes the importance of art and culture but what does that have to do with selling cars?

Either way, I don't have a driver's licence so I don't see myself driving one of those any time soon. I live in the city, I don't need no fucking car.

i didnt know scion cars existed until now. i think they are an interesting car company, partly because they are producing albums by bands i like. also, here we are talking about them in a public forum. that's 3 ways this a/v thing is working for them.

I was thinking this too but then again there's a reason I'm not in marketing.

I guess the first question to ask is how much are they spending for this project?  It might actually be relatively cheap for them to pay for studio time and give the Melvins some money as apposed to paying for a few billboards.  Plus their name will be on an official Melvins release forever. 

But I'm also thinking that people who like the Melvins will most likely want a car that can haul gear around.  The "box" design seems like the only model that could fit a half stack in it and it's probably their least appealing car.  I have to admit though, if space wasn't an issue I think the tC, FR-S, and maybe the iQ are pretty nice looking cars for the price.  http://www.scion.com/cars/ (http://www.scion.com/cars/)

I think this is an experiment in advertising more than anything.  Who knows how it'll work out for Scion in the end.  At least they aren't embarassing themselves like Burger King by creating their own band.   :lol:

I think Melvins have been checking out the bbs anagram threads, and everything scheduled to be released this year will be written in code.

I predict it's going to be the best year ever to be a Melvins fan. We got this, FREAK PUKE, and a possible documentary via the Lite Tour  [-o<

On the album sorry EP title i think The Bulls & The Bees could be SEEN to be a comment upon Scion (or the music industry or indeed listeners) itself. Instead of the familar term "the birds and the bees" it is changed to Bulls. Much tougher, larger animals capable of doing much more damage. Is the bull the band, the label or those who listen to the music? The fans perhaps? I hope this doesn't signify that the album is bull****!  8-[


i didnt know scion cars existed until now.
I knew they make cars but only fairly recently discovered so. For the longest time i thought they were just a music festival like Roadburn or ATP since they have the annual Scion Rock Fest. Great line ups too.

do you think it sounds just kinda weak? like they are just trying to re-imagine ASA, but not really improve it? this is also what happens when you write so many songs you feel compelled to go back in the closet and dig out some riffs. then instead of conveying your realtime emotions within the entire song, you get flashbacks, causing it to just sound the same. i've learned not to go back as much, and try to write in the moment. that was wayyy to introspective. alas, this well may go dry pretty soon. time to kick out the bassist.

Song is defintely in drop D tuning. It'll be interesting to hear what tuning the other songs are in

- I really like the vocal harmonies. The song's pretty cool and starting to make more sense on repeated listens, although the song kinda has two parts and it's going to take some more listens for me to "understand" and make sense how it all flows together, cause so far I don't completely "get it"-but that's okay because that's almost always how it is for me when I first hear new melvins, or most new stuff from bands I really like.

to be honest i just don't like the big melvins sound. the tone of the guitar and i hate to say it, the drumming too, just doesn't do it for me.
many of the songs, including this one conjure up images of college boys getting drunk with heaps of "fuck yeahs" and high fives going around. it has that annoying all american sound, i don't know how to explain it, just how it sounds to me. don't like it, lacks depth, lacks soul.
probably the only one or one of few that feels this way here, but that's my opinion. not trying to upset anyone or get into a debate.

i'd be happy if they went into the closet as you say and dug out the riffs from bullhead, or hat.
hoping that melvins lite will capture a different style than big melvins.

Jesus, you must have been to an awesome college if that's what you hear.  This is all I hear:

LMFAO - Party Rock Anthem ft. Lauren Bennett, GoonRock (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQ6zr6kCPj8#ws)

lacks depth, lacks soul.

I'm not really sure why you think it lacks depth.  There's lots of subtle things going on and the track is nearly impossible to digest completely after one listen.  Plus I love the whole "I must of missed my calling" then it immediately snaps into a quick heavy riff.  I love the light distortion on Buzz's voice too. 

Sure, it may sound accessible to those of us who listen to Hung Bunny without thinking it's weird, but play it for anyone who thinks Jet is a pretty good band and they'll probably say, "What the hell is this shit?  The drums don't match the song!"

I was hoping for something totaly different as well. Especially becouse this is a different format, I thought it actually might happen that they would go in a total new or more open sounded direction with the Biz lineup, or a second Eggnog. I'm not saying i'm not liking this song, I think it's great, the first few chords even remind me of ''Civilized Worm'' somehow, what is one of my fav tunes with the guys of Big Biz so far. Still exited about the other songs, and of course about Freak Puke.

Don't over think this.  It's the melvins.  Though this current line up is not my favorite, the melvins, no matter what line up, is still a million times better than any other crappy new music out there.  In fact, I'd buy a double album full of Theresa screams or pure digital silence-type songs before the thought would even enter my mind to purchase any other fake indie crap or over produced over hyped pop album. 

The song may not be perfect in your mind because its not what you expect.  When have the boys ever cared about what anyone has thought?  And they certainly don't care about what any of us think they should sound like.  So...don't over think it and just enjoy some new tunes from the best band to ever exist.

This track is all melvins; lively, crazy drums, fun, twisted, there's drone and weird vocals, and the last part at the end where it speeds up needs to go on for 5 more minutes. It's everything you SAY you want from your favorite band, but can't stop bashing it, because you're jaded, until you reach the point that it becomes self evident you're foolish...then you'll buy all the limited editions and claim, "It just took a while to grow on me...like a wart."

well, i'm listening to it a day later, after listening to most of bullhead, after a nice amount of drinks. perfect situation to listening to music one wants to like. but i'm sorry. this is shite. it really is. once again, after a minute (those intro drums are good), what the fuck are you guys on about?

don't wanna hammer or intrude on someones fun, but i've also read comments here how nothings being produced thats worth listening too, well... good luck to ya but im a 33 year old man and theres a whole lot of good shit happening that's well worth a listen and unfortunately this song is not part of this.

this is shit.

but, i love you guys.

The song may not be perfect in your mind because its not what you expect. 

or because it sounds exactly like what we expected  :P

I have listened to the song once. I was really tired and in an airport after a 6 hour flight and preparing for an 8 hour flight. Now that I am in Krakow I am going to listen again.

I really like the song. I do not want the Melvins to be anything but what they are and when they are. This is all just another step in their progression. I remember back when a good friend of mine was all pissed when Stoner Witch came out. He said the bass playing was too fancy and the album was nothing like Bullhead or Lysol.

Melvins have been evolving since 1983. This is a good thing. Even if there is not a particular era one may not like as much as another, you can bet that there will be much more on the horizon. I mean, now we have multiple versions of Melvins existing at the same time. How fucking cool is that?

Sounds like a leftover. :D
yep, you said it.
Im gonna risk being the bad guy and say I don't think its that great. buzzos singing parts are cool though. I still cant stand jared.

i had to turn it off halfway through, found it annoying. i'll try again later.
i have hope for the melvins lite.
do you think it sounds just kinda weak? like they are just trying to re-imagine ASA, but not really improve it? this is also what happens when you write so many songs you feel compelled to go back in the closet and dig out some riffs. then instead of conveying your realtime emotions within the entire song, you get flashbacks, causing it to just sound the same. i've learned not to go back as much, and try to write in the moment. that was wayyy to introspective. alas, this well may go dry pretty soon. time to kick out the bassist.


many of the songs, including this one conjure up images of college boys getting drunk with heaps of "fuck yeahs" and high fives going around. it has that annoying all american sound, i don't know how to explain it, just how it sounds to me.


you explained it pretty well,i can see your point there. it seemed a lot of people on here loved that Guns song on the last BB record though

one more melvins album and then buzz and dale retire to leave the melvins name to jared and coady and maybe toshi will join. there's your NEW melvins.

I was talking about this with another friend of mine, Like maybe one day Buzz and Dale have to pass the "melvins" torch to the next generation, that would be cool there was still "melvins" when my grandchildren are running around.

I wonder.

Buzz did comment that when he dies he'd like all the bands music to cease to exist too. So don't get your hopes up.

Having listened to it a few times now. Yeah, it's fine.

The problem-ish I have is that it could easily be on any of the last 3 studio albums (as loads of people have posted), and while I'm OK with the last 3 albums (well Bride is still not great for me, but generally) I would've loved them to try something different, given this is an EP released for free to anyone with a decent broadband connection, surely they could've stretched a bit? Experimented. Who's gonna gripe about a free release?



Oh...

I completely disagree. The Melvins are nothing without Buzz and Dale, but especially Buzz since it is his band. The idea of Jared and Coady carrying on under the "Melvins" is sort of an insult . Once Buzz and Dale have nothing to do with the band, the Melvins should cease to exist.

I didn't say I WANTED the torch pass to actually happen, we'd both just asked the question because the BB guys are like y'know sort of like the sorcerers apprentice....but melvins. I can't think of any other band having that much clout and effect.

just to clear that up.

i cant wait to see TWOW live. those power chords as a wall of sound will be a different thing than what they sound like on computer speakers. the snare line leading into the middle part, the middle part, the landslide drums beginning the end part, and the drums at the end are all genius.

as for bigmelvins griping, bigmelvins shows are better than a few other lineups i've seen. also, jared has done some of the best melvins vocals in my opinion, dog island for example.

This whole fucking big melvins whining thing is getting old, real fucking fast.

The Melvins are not going to make Lysol or Bullhead ever again, it's not going to fucking happen. Go listen to those records and shut the fuck up. The three Big Melvins album do not sound alike. It's cute that you guys want to stand out from the rest of us and act like you know more about what defines the Melvins than the Melvins do but all you succeed at is coming off as giant pitchdorks.

How about all you fucking whine bags skip on the next melvins shows? put your fucking money where your mouth is.

I'm all for a critical look at their music and it's not a question of loving everything that they do. But all you dipshits whining about the big melvins because Jared kills your boner are just that, dipshits.

Don't forget that every fucking melvins album was released with a chorus of "this sucks.", "it's different", "I don't like it." only to be lauded as amazing records further on down the road.

If the melvins have become so goddamn predictable why don't you fucking negative nancies get together, record a 5 song EP and we'll put it up against The Bulls and The Bees to see how predictable the melvins really are.

Melvins are still doing what no one else is doing - but in a different sense than how it was perceived ten or twenty years ago. That's essentially what we want, right? Melvins making something new....

When Buzz and Dale are too old to make those heavy riffs and cymbal crashes that we all know and love (let's hope it never comes to this) I hope they go on and continue their act as an old-man synthrock duel.

Now that my panties are no longer in a bunch let me clarify.

I understand that some people may not like what the Melvins have been doing in recent years and that's perfectly fine. We all have our favorite melvins records, periods we prefer and stuff and that's cool.

My problem is just with the fact that it seems some people here have preconceived notions of what the Melvins are and they judge their recent work based on those preconceived notions.

What I love about the Melvins is that you can't fit them in a neat little box. Every time you attempt to do that, they throw you a curveball that undermines whatever defined that neat little box.

the Melvins are everything and nothing at the same time. They are complete chaos. Having preconceived notions about the Melvins or attempting to fit them in a neat little box is missing the point entirely.

x2

On a side note, the one complaint I still don't get is their songs sounding the same since Big Business joined.  I really don't hear it at all.  Look at The Water Glass, I'll Finish You Off, My Generation, and PGx3 from BSM and those songs sound nothing like anything they've done before, and that's nearly half of the album!  While the other songs are more traditional Melvins rockers I still don't feel like they're a rehash of anything.  I might get a slight vibe, like being briefly reminded of Tipping the Lion when Hospital Up starts, but it's pretty minor stuff.  Nothing more than being vaguely reminded of Sweet Willy Rollbar when I hear Mombius Hibachi.

Also, a lot of people who complain how similar the Big Business era Melvins albums are seem to rank The Ramones, Motorhead, High on Fire, Om, and The Jesus Lizard as one of their favorite bands with no complaints about how similar each of their albums are (although we all know how much most TJL fans love "Blue").  I mean I love Prick, Singles 1-12, Honky, and CoD, and I don't even consider The Bride Screamed Murder to be in my top 10 favorite Melvins albums, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't listen to it more than those 4 albums combined.  There's a certain addictive quality to the new Melvins albums (not to say that previous albums weren't addictive).  I just feel like there's more depth and subtle little things to discover than there has been in the past. 

I have more to rant about but I'll spare you.  Time to drink.   :cheers:

I'll bring this up one last time because I think it's a cool idea. The thought of Melvins continuing on for "the next generation". Perhaps the band evolves into a sort of art installment with rotating members or something like Chicken Switch. I dunno. I guess the guys in the band would have a better idea as to how this would work. As Melvins obsessives, we're alll very spoiled to revel in their consistent and quality output whether it sounds "samey" or not.

I mean, in terms of other bands that have held it together for this long, there are very few that continue to be this forward thinking. Shit, they've dabbled in thrash, electronica, ambient, acoustic, ummmm, I'm sure I'm forgetting something. Oh and they seem to be good at everything they try. Most of us play or have played music and we know this isn't easy.

Get the fuck off this board if you continue to question the prowess of the mighty Melvins.

I prefer Melvins as a trio, with Buzz solely on vocals, with Dale sharing in when needed, but register and accept that they want to continue with BB. I think the new stuff brings nothing new to the table, but as Dijk says, it will still be a treat to catch them live.

I don't see why there are so many complaints that it sounds like a left over track from ASA or Bride.  Pretty much every band takes some old riffs/etc from the vaults and re-develops them sometimes years down the line, and makes something new out of it.  I think the new song is pretty good, and I happen to like Bride.  At least it is a free EP , and will not cost us like $50 for limited edition super-rare 7" vinyl.

Of course not, I'm just saying that not liking the new song because it's not like "old" melvins is lame.

I don't have a problem with anyone not liking the new stuff nor am I calling anyone out for being haters.

All I'm saying is that if YOU don't like the new stuff it's not because the melvins have changed (or not) it's because YOU don't like it. Attributing whatever perceived quality or lack thereof to the melvins is bullshit.

I was using an example of a friend that I had who did not like Stoner Witch when it came out because it was not like Lysol. Some bands are perfect not changing...Slayer, AC/DC...some bands blow it when they change...Ramones...some bands evolve....Melvins!

Maybe the bulls and the bees is more like bullshit and b-sides.  Maybe it's not supposed to be the greatest new thing but more of a  "here is some other stuff we did with big business" or Here are some extras that scion paid us to record and you can have it for free.  Either way I don't feel one bit ripped off or disapointed.  I guess I'm just saying that maybe the problem starts in the expectation that everything should top everything else.  I do think that freak puke will be great though.

Sounds like a leftover. :D
yep, you said it.
Im gonna risk being the bad guy and say I don't think its that great. buzzos singing parts are cool though. I still cant stand jared.

"it has that annoying all american sound"   

I know what you mean and I blame Jared.  He brings a whole truck stop chic thing to the band that I just don't care for.  It sounds like a t shirt with a lone wolf howling at the moon on it and a bandana

i had to turn it off halfway through, found it annoying. i'll try again later.
i have hope for the melvins lite.
do you think it sounds just kinda weak? like they are just trying to re-imagine ASA, but not really improve it? this is also what happens when you write so many songs you feel compelled to go back in the closet and dig out some riffs. then instead of conveying your realtime emotions within the entire song, you get flashbacks, causing it to just sound the same. i've learned not to go back as much, and try to write in the moment. that was wayyy to introspective. alas, this well may go dry pretty soon. time to kick out the bassist.

to be honest i just don't like the big melvins sound. the tone of the guitar and i hate to say it, the drumming too, just doesn't do it for me.
many of the songs, including this one conjure up images of college boys getting drunk with heaps of "fuck yeahs" and high fives going around. it has that annoying all american sound, i don't know how to explain it, just how it sounds to me. don't like it, lacks depth, lacks soul.
probably the only one or one of few that feels this way here, but that's my opinion. not trying to upset anyone or get into a debate.

i'd be happy if they went into the closet as you say and dug out the riffs from bullhead, or hat.
hoping that melvins lite will capture a different style than big melvins.

We know for a fact that Buzz writes 99% of the music yet some of you seem to blame big business for this supposed "turn for the worse". How does that make any fucking sense?

From what we know (which isn't much) , the way the melvins write is as follows: Buzz shows up with songs, presents them to the boys and says "What would you do with this?" They're free to do what they want within the parameters of the structure created by Buzz. I'm not claiming to know all the ins and outs of melvins song writing and shit, just going from what we know.

On a side note, what's wrong with a little lively discussion about the Melvins? Is this not what this board is about?

No one should be afraid to express their opinions on the Melvins but need to accept that not everyone agrees and they'll sometimes be confronted with people who disagree -- OH THE HORROR!

My first post was most definitely a bit reactionary, that I admit. I don't have a problem with differing opinions, but if I disagree I'm going to state it.

If some people here are too thin-skinned to have their opinions confronted and questioned, that's not my problem.

I think Buzz most likely tailors his writing towards the strengths of a current line up (whichever that may be).

I mean listen to some of the other stuff the BB guys (especially Jared) have done ... usually, heavy, rocking, fun loving, or as of late oprearetic, overdramatic prog. While perhaps Melvinesque at times; usually much more lighthearted, and straightforward rock based approach ... much like the newer Melvins stuff ... I can totally hear it, can't you? Not like Buzz hasn't delved into more straightforward rock mode before ... but it was a nugget here and a nugget there ... over the last few (and seems to be new) releases this "rock" approach has seemed to dominate.

Some like, Some don't.

Title: Re: New Melvins! - The Bulls & The Bees
Post by: Idlehanz on February 28, 2012, 02:06:08 AM
I feel inclined to throw in my 2 cents on the new track.  And the Big Melvins conversation.

This new tune is hard to place.  It incorporates everything I've ever loved about the Melvins, but at the same time, feels like something I wasn't expecting.  That being said, after being a fan since 1991 or so, I know better than to expect something from them.  To expect a song or album to sound like anything else they've done is nonsensical.  You haven't been a fan very long if you're expecting the same thing twice in a row.  And I let my expectations get ahead of my common knowledge of the band.  To sit and think you're going to get another Lysol, Bullhead, Houdini, or even GPT is insane.  They've done it and moved on and so should you.  The Melvins and more specifically Dale are the only band where I've ever considered a drumbeat to be a riff.  Same goes for Buzz's vocals.  The only band ever to make me feel like the drums and vocals are musical instruments in a song.  They incorporate everything possible into a song in a way that almost no other band cares to.

Adding Jared and Coady only made them better IMO.  I fucking love seeing vid's of Dale and Coady playing in perfect synchronicity.  Anyone who plays drums know's how hard Dale's beats are.  Imagine trying to play them along with him?!  Jared's voice sync's up and accent's Buzz's.  Big Biz's songs and style sync's right with the Melvins.  How this isn't a musical match made in heaven for anyone I just don't get.  ASA was such a powerful introduction to the next rung on the Melvins ladder.  Look, we all know Dale is a powerhouse.  We all love seeing Dale kill it solo behind the kit.  But what I don't get is why some people hate on having two drummers. Don't let your love of the bands old music get in the way of enjoying the new music.  Be glad that a good band has made it this far and given us this much music and entertainment.  Be glad that they are still doing it and that they are putting their music out there in the best way that makes them money and still let's us hear it. 

Well, I feel better.

No one here is in the position to direct anything, but as fanboys we have our different opinions. In my book Buzz and Dale are ingenious, but I believe that no matter if they are in 100% control of the band that BB is now a part of, the double drumming and Jareds vocal + BBs style lays certain terms and has an effect on how stuff sounds. If that`s Buzz` intention that`s ok, but us fanboys between must have a possibility to exchange views.

PS! Not everything made together with BB is bad in my book, there are som real highlights on the prior records, and live they are amazing.

ManWith, aren`t people allowed to have their opinion?

Yes, people are allowed to have their opinions and the issue isn't "he doesn't like a song I like!".  At this point a lot of people who criticize the Melvins here are just sounding like a broken record.  I feel like we could basically look at everything negative that was said about The War on Wisdom, look at the complaints from The Bride Screamed Murder, and they'd be about the same.

For example, I was trying to figure out why "dijk cheese" didn't like the new song.  He made comments about it sounding like college rock and it lacked depth and soul.  I pointed out why I thought he was wrong (aka my opinion).  His next post on the thread was about how "this is shite. it really is.", "what the fuck are you guys on about?", and another closing "this is shit.".  I get it, he doesn't like the song.  I can live with that.  Of course I can!  How else could I live on a planet where no Melvins albums have gone gold?

But the thing is I find it baffling.  If I play The Bride Screamed Murder for some teenage girls who are LMFAO fans then I won't blink twice when they call the album "shit".  If I play it for fans of Hostile Ambient Takeover and they call it "shit" I can't help but say "You think so?!?!  Really?!?!  How come?!?!" 

It's about like if I met someone who claimed to be a huge Black Sabbath fan but they hated Vol 4.

"Really?  But you like the other albums?  How is that possible?"
"It sounds like the last albums and it's shit"
"I just don't hear it.  I mean Fx and Changes sound nothing like anything else they've ever done.  I guess Snowblind is a little similar to Sweet Leaf with the drug theme and all but they're pretty different songs!"
"It's shit"

It's just not a very satisfying answer.  However that's about what it feels like every time there's discussion about new Melvins at this point.  It's just the same tired arguments with nothing new being brought to the table.


But anyway, I was considering not even posting this mainly because it's difficult to judge someone's tone through text.  I'm not mad at anyone and I personally don't think anything was ban worthy.

Hello......SUPERNAUT!!!!! That was unlike anything they'd done too and is the sole reason Volume 4 reigns supreme. The funkiest shake your ass riff around and an all-round brilliant tune.

I don't think dijk meant to say "it's shite".....I think he got a little too excited and meant to say "it's dull and predictable imho and it's now been around 7yrs, 3 studio albums coming up 4 and unknown amounts of live albums with this line-up and I want a change as one of THE coolest bands on the planet seems to be getting stale in the studio which dissapoints me greatly".

I really don't like volume 4 as much as some of the others.  I don't like tomorrow's dream.  Here is my top 5 list. the last two are in a distant last place.   
1. Black Sabbath
2. Sabotage
3. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
4. Paranoid
5. Master of reality


As for the Melvins

1. Hostile Ambient Takeover
2. Lysol
3. Pigs of The Roman Empire
4. Stag
5. Ozma

That is what I like best.  I don't hate any of it.  But the new song seems to blend civilized worm/smilingcobra and parts of TBSM.  I think it's an interesting B-side or extra, but not album material.  Maybe we should consider that it's just the scion E.P. and probably dosen't reflect the direction of future projects. 
I only like Jared's vocals on A History of Bad Men, other than that I can do without him.  But I do think that it shows a lot of balls on Buzzo's part to let someone else do lead vocals from time to time. 

That's my opinion man...try not to cry about it.

I think it will rock heavily, Eggnog is one of their eps and it is one of the best things that they have done.

What's the definition of an EP, again? I forgot.

Is it length or track number or just because the band says so?

Extended Play

more songs than a single, but not a full album

So if it goes on track number does that mean Lysol is a single?

or at least no rockband comes to my mind which releases new stuff i am still intersted in when comparing to their older releases. so from my point of view: good job!

still expecting a tad more from freak puke...

Yea, I guess a link to the Scion album is in the grey area.  Even though it's a "free" release I imagine Scion wouldn't be happy about the album leaking and it being downloaded on other websites.

Yeah I didn't think a stream was as bad, I figured at most I'd get a tongue lashing. Now I know, and knowings half the battle. Can I get my old name back?

Who is this?

Yea, I guess a link to the Scion album is in the grey area.  Even though it's a "free" release I imagine Scion wouldn't be happy about the album leaking and it being downloaded on other websites.

It seems to encapsulate everything about the melvins. Part of it is Lysolish, while other parts are bootlickerish while still being very much in the Big Melvins style.

I'm on the third listen of We Are Doomed. I'm very surprised by the positive reaction for this track and the so-so feedback of The War On Wisdom, because I like The War On Wisdom a lot better. I'm hoping We Are Doomed will grow on me.
Title: Re: New Melvins! - The Bulls & The Bees
Post by: Metalhead Cow on March 03, 2012, 12:24:35 AM
Listening to it more and I realize now it's excellent. My statements from my previous post were partly a result of mixed expectations on my part! I should know now not to expect things to be a certain way with the Melvins. The song's a grower, though. It has a cool "dark" intro with some great drumming. After that I was expecting something slow and sludgy in the vein of A History Of A Bad Men. Instead we get a slow "happy" almost bluesy kind of laid back groove. Not "Shevil" laid back, but in the vein of Billy Fish and the second part of Suicide In Progress.  It really gets good when the vocals kick in. The vocals on this track (and on The War On Wisdom) are excellent. The song gradually unfolds until the riffs get darker and more menacing, yet with the catchy vocal harmonies remaining intact, but sounding darker. And yeah, I definitely hear the resemblance with the "don't look down" part of Electric Flower. I'm looking forward to hearing how We Are Doomed flows into Friends Before Larry.

One other note-on the first couple of listens I found myself wishing that the guitar was more distorted. Then I realized that's part of the song's charm. It's heavy and menacing without heavy distortion and it works. I was thinking about Buzz's comment about these songs being "amazing with their calm intensity" and that statement really rings through to me with We Are Doomed. There's a calm intensity throughout the whole song. I think I get where Buzz is coming from.

In your case, it will probably be best heard performed live. Just like how I prefer Let It All Be live over the studio version from The Bootlicker.

I like both songs we have heard from this. Thank you Melvins for this freebie. You didn't have to do this and I want to say that I appreciate it and the work you put into it. Cannot wait for Freak Puke but I will...

I'm really loving B&B.  Fucking love it.  It strikes me as the sort of missing logical link between Pigs of the Roman Empire and A Senile Animal.  Pigs is one of my favorite albums, so I love this.

Also I think the tracks cohere nicely with each other.

Indeed I would DC. I mean how much effort would it be for little 'ol Glenifer to lob a little spit in the palm right? It's called courtesy ... free or not. That being said, I'd turn it down spit or no ... Glen is sweet an' all but I'm not an amputee, ya know? I can do that shit myself ... better and still free! I mean if someone's gonna step up to the plate at least do it with an open mouth or a lossless download!

Amphetamine plans on doing a vinyl release in a month or two. For now, just take the free download. The pre-stream is a little low-fi so I think you should grab the one from the Scion site.  It has the best sounding mix.

Yeah, I got that one ... and my first Scion spam too! A is cd coming my ways I believe. And if the AmRep's got a cool cover, and I got the squid ...

Still I'm sure Scion shot the Melvins more than like, the iRecord app. to lay it down. Then Scion turn around an cheap it out with an mp3?

It's a whole other long winded argument I shant go on with ... simply put Melvins or not, Scion or not, mp3 sounds like shit.

But, yes much better than the stream ...

"Me: I heard that it was possible to get the latest release of the Melvins "Bulls & The Bees". Is this true? Thank you from France!

Him: Unfortunately, we are not able to ship any physical copies of this record internationally.
However, if you have a friend in the states I will gladly send it to him/her?

i'd almost bet the house he's using an sampling app called thumbjam. the violins sound exactly like the samples on the app and when you use the accelerometer for vibrato and/or move your finger up and down really fast, it sounds more like a theramin than violins. you can also set it up to have up to 7 octaves on the screen at one time. i've used it a bunch. they prolly used it on the ep too.

Someone at work pulled up a Bulls and the Bees review for me to read. The author claims Coady was indeed not present on the EP. Upon multiple listenings, it's totally apparent to me that two drums are in the mix. Dale and Coady even play parts of We Are Doomed on that drumbattle video...

I'll see if I can dig it up later tonight.....

Anyone listen to this on good headphones? Notice the ghosting from ambient drum mics picking up the others' drumming, like coady's mic picking up dale's sound and vice versa( a faint phaser type sound on the left channel picking up the right)?

Regardless, thank for the link to the lyrics. Nice find!

Very odd claim.  It's pretty obvious to me that there are two drummers.  Not to mention Coady's frequent tweets about the EP and there being a kid version of Coady in the music video.

I think he leaves most of it up to Dale and Dale then tells Coady what's going to happen. Coady will add a bit of Coadyness to it which will please Dale and Dale will then run it by Buzz who will say yea or nay.

Mackie probably has the final say, but they won't tell us this until Buzz is interviewed well into his eighties.

A woman at work who I always talk about the Melvins to and has no idea what they sound like asked for the link so I emailed it to her a while ago. She finally downloaded it and said something like "What is wrong with you?" to me. I think it was too much for her  :lol:
Good job you didn't give her that CD-R of COD then!  :)
I offered to get her a bunch of Melvins CD-Rs but she said "Uh, that's okay."

Someone at work pulled up a Bulls and the Bees review for me to read. The author claims Coady was indeed not present on the EP. Upon multiple listenings, it's totally apparent to me that two drums are in the mix. Dale and Coady even play parts of We Are Doomed on that drumbattle video...

I'll see if I can dig it up later tonight.....

No guys, this is true. Coady is "missing"! They just tracked Dale's drumming on the right and left channels. He's disappeared like Kevin. I fear the worst.

Nope, I don't believe it. Or maybe I do. Coady comeeeeee backkkkk!!! What should we do? Start a BBS search party?
If this is true, it would be the ultimate joke. Pure awesomeness.

Paul, next time the subject comes up, just give her (A) Shit Sandwich.... and I'm not talking about the record.

The printed version got chopped a little bit, so here is my original version of the piece, too:

"Interpreting the Melvins"

"It's because I've got cajones!" boasts Buzz Osborne, mastermind of the Melvins. Sometimes, the vocalist/guitarist/experimentalist can be a hard person to understand. In this instance, he

"The lyrics are very direct, even if I don't know what they mean. I've never had a certain way of doing things, so that leads to how our music comes out."

Thanks, Johnnyg! Buzzo interviews are always a pleasure. When I listen to Melvins, I prefer to make up my own lyrics. I will be happy in life if I never know what Jared is yelling from 3:20-3:26 on War on Wisdom. I don't want to know, and that's the beauty of it.....

Did they actually say they are shipping them now ?  I got an e-mail back saying they did not have the CDs yet but when they get them that I would get a copy sent to me.

this was the same reply i got about 2 weeks ago. i thought they were all out, but i emailed them just in case and they said they would send me one when they got them in stock.

Are they really playing all these tracks on the Unsane run? It's surprising if they're doing the ambient tracks - Friends w/ Larry, and Really Long Wait. They never do any of the ambient stuff from Honky, though they should. National Hamster is awesome, the guitar riff sounds like a lost Alice Cooper track circa 1971.

While I was listening to The Bulls & The Bees section of the set - the way they deliver it, in the same order - watching it happen three nights in a row made me think - THIS IS A CONCEPT ALBUM. In the 70s Hard Rock band kind of a way. Their is a little magic and mysticism of a mustached unicorns and gutted mermaids kind of way. When you see them play this live, think about that and let me know if I am off my rocker. Or fuck it, just listen to it because it rocks live!!!

I'm completely amazed by the vocals on this EP.  Vocals have always seemed like an instrument to me, and now they've gone from a 3 member band with 6 instruments, to a 4 member band with 8 instruments.  I know it's been six years, but it seems like they're really reigning in what they can do as far as a 4 piece now.

So does anyone elses' disc(s) look like as if they may have been handled by a drunk four year old? Or maybe a guy on the line at some Toyota plant somewhere? Scuffs, fingerprints, just an overall film or filth all over the playing surface? Easily the worst shape (including used) I've ever bought a cd in. Seems to play fine, but still ...

And what's with the messy tracking between Friends Before Larry/A Really Long Wait? Sure seems as though they're supposed to meld/flow out and into one another, right? But there's that big ol' messy gap breaking the mood! Surely this wasn't intended from the Melvins' end? Scion gotta learn how to track an album a little better ...

Really dig those tunes (FBL/ARLW) nice turns at the wheel for the Melvins ... interesting territory ... dig the stangled/buried sounding leady guitar parts in FBL and the grunting at the begining is a nice touch. ARLW reminds me alot of A Silver Mt. Zion/GSYBE! kinda thing. Pretty cool to here Melvins' take on that style. Be interesting to know how they did what? Pencils, violins, softeeware or is there an app for that?

National Hamster is also pretty boss. Definatly hear the Coop thing going on ... kinda School's Out era vibe ... Also for some reason reminds me alot of Melvins' cover of Arnie (White Punks On Dope). Cool tune.

I have some European Flo and Eddie reissues that have the space between songs. A friend told me that happens sometimes when a label just wants to put something out and doesn't really pay attention to those things. I've just been listening to the burn I made before my CD arrived.

Okay i'll do that later but i insist it's very, VERY underwhelming. Basically it consists of most of the studio albums on CD. But here's the real shocker for you ......get ready...... i've thrown out ALL, yes ALL the covers and cases!!!!  :shock: :shock:

Even a few of their albums in the past too!!!!  :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Yep Jules are you still standing? I never keep the cases for ANY band i own the album off. Just put the CD in a wallet or if it's someone like OM they go in a CD single style case. Yes the ultimate accolade!!! And that is your lot! I don't own ANY merch or tshirts or posters or vinyl or anything like that, just the albums. Im not personally fussed about all that peripheral stuff. I like to hear you guys get excited about it which i DO think is cool but just not for me. Truth be told i hardly ever play Melvins stuff bar the odd youtube video or something.

So does anyone elses' disc(s) look like as if they may have been handled by a drunk four year old? Or maybe a guy on the line at some Toyota plant somewhere? Scuffs, fingerprints, just an overall film or filth all over the playing surface? Easily the worst shape (including used) I've ever bought a cd in. Seems to play fine, but still ...

And what's with the messy tracking between Friends Before Larry/A Really Long Wait? Sure seems as though they're supposed to meld/flow out and into one another, right? But there's that big ol' messy gap breaking the mood! Surely this wasn't intended from the Melvins' end? Scion gotta learn how to track an album a little better ...


My case was kind of bent up and the cd itself had a bit of dust or something on it.  Kind of irritating. 

I have to agree that the gaps in between the songs are distracting.  We Are All Doomed is supposed to flow into Friends Before Larry more smoothly too.  There's always a slight chance that The Melvins intended this because of the random things they've done in the past; like the 20min of silence at the end of Honky.

Also, can anyone confirm that the cd actually sounds better than the 320kbps mp3s?  The gaps make me wonder if they just burned the mp3s to a cd.

Yeah, I was thinking similarily. Somehow, I just can't see it ... I mean that would be too fuckin amature ... even for a car company. Though I can't say I have high hopes for this kinda music publishing. I mean hell if the music business couldn't get it together to realease music successfully; as if a car company will ... it's an argument I could wax on all night about. Thou last time I did that 'round these parts I was labeled a commie pinko elitist ...

Back on track ... haven't listened to mp3/cd back to back. Thou I thought the same. I was expecting it to dwarf, crush, SMOTHER!! the mp3 ... I usually hear a big dif between the two, this time I didn't really notice one.

But man, National Hamster ... I hear the 'Coop of it ... kinda "School's Out" ... but for some reason it also reminds me of Melvins cover of "Arnie" (White Punks On Dope) ...

So, today I went to the Chilexpress agency at Alemania Avenue and now I finally have my copy. As you can see there are some details in the package that some users pointed out like scuffs or crumples but at least the CD plays fine. I haven't done the "experiment" to see if it sounds better or equal to the mp3 version but it seems to sound very well.

it has goosebump inducing moments throughout.   

I notice the bass drum counts have become more unique and prominent since Coady signed on.   they'll have moments where the entire beat is driven by the double bass "thump...     thump, thump, thump,thump, thump, thump....   thump"

I love both, but don't feel like I really own them or can properly listen to them until I get the vinyl. I wonder if Bulls & The Bees would fit on a 10"? That would be hot, they haven't had a proper 10" since the days of Eggnog.

i read somewhere (dont remember where) that the art was from buzz and mac akie)  mine is a picture of an alien looking guy and my friends looks like it is done by someone different.  Hers is the black flag symbols and a guy that looks like buzz (at least his hair) lol

I think this ep is one of the most overlooked things they've done in recent years. I would dare to say it's my favorite release with the Big Business guys. War on Wisdom and We Are All Doomed were amazing live.

I don't think Scion A/V (http://www.scionav.com/index) is mailing CDs out anymore, so here's the CD quality for everyone who didn't get one: FLACs (http://www.filedropper.com/thebullsthebees)

Agreed!

I was too lazy to get the c/d from Scion. Just realized I want a copy. Someone on eBay from LA has 83 copies for sale.

Been listening to this a lot post 30th Anniversary Tour.

I would just like to officially register how fucking good this EP is.

It's really great, but I can see why some of the fans complain about how
this is nothing more than a Big Business record,
that just happens to feature Dale and Buzz.
I would say that it fits in almost perfectly,
between Mind The Drift and Battlefields Forever.
Of course, I have no problem with this. I love both bands!

Only just listened to that The Bulls & The Bees again last week it kills me, greatness on that EP.
Curiously, (or not!) i find Bulls & Bees to be overrated in the Melvins catalog. Many fans here seem to really love this EP - i've seen some people hold it up as one of the best things they've EVER put out! Personally i don't hear that at all. I just think it's okay. 'We Are Doomed' is a really good song but the rest just doesn't really strike me very much. Although i do wish it was a full length album rather than an EP.

Just listening to this one again. Ignoring my previous comment from a few years ago above, this is a great modern Melvins release! It flows together so, so well. Goodness i wish this had been a full album - far too much cool stuff going on to tuck it away as an EP that more casual fans may well never explore or hear about. Add 20 minutes and stick 4 more songs on here and it would have been a fabulous end to the BB era. I always remember some of the negativity here when we first heard 'The War On Wisdom', now that stands as a fine slice of Melvinsness! As does the rest too. Not that dissimilar to the previous Big Melvins records either really when one reflects back.

I knew you would come around eventually! I only listened to this again last week and it still makes me shake my head how good it is.

I think one of the reasons that it resonates so well and will hold up as  being close to perfect is that it  is an EP and leaves you wanting more (less is more). Loved this when it came out and still do. It's glorious and flows perfect.
I hope some day that they tour with BB again. That band would leave anyone with their jaw on the floor.
(or as Dale so perfectly said in Colossus of Destiny "This band will put your dick in the dirt"  :lol: )
