Title: Melvins Lite - Freak Puke
Post by: connor272 on February 16, 2012, 11:49:23 AM
I was just reading on Ipecac's website and was browsing through artists and saw Melvins Lite had their own page and decided to check it out and found this.

Quote
Melvins Lite is the latest incarnation with King Buzzo, Dale Crover, and Trevor Dunn.

Great find Connor.

'Freak Puke' - i REALLY like that title. One of their best IMO. A live album possibly?

Post by: (((O))) on February 16, 2012, 12:58:03 PM
Assuming this is a live release, these were the songs they performed live as LITE with Dunn right?  :)

Shevil
Jew Boy Flower Head
Pitfalls In Serving Warrants
Eye Flys
Up The Dumper
Let Me Roll It
Dies Iraea
Berthas
Suicide In Progress
Electric Flower

The Artwork and title have officially blown me away!  I hope it's crybaby style with melvins lite on some songs Melvins lite with trevor on others and the four piece on some songs. 

But either way you can't lose with freak puke.

This is great news.  I'm hoping it has some new tracks on it, but if I'm betting, it's a release of one of their live shows.

I just (audio)visualize HOUDINI 2005 with the crispness and quality of studio sound,  not to mention all the other doors studio recording opens,  and I'm feeling the most excitement I have in years for a MELVINS release.
I'm an old timer, ya know.  it takes a bit to get the old motor started.

Eye Flys is alright but certainly not my favourite Melvins track. I'd say it's appeared on enough releases now (live and studio) to be left off this one.
Title: Re: Melvins Lite - Freak Puke
Post by: Shatz on February 17, 2012, 06:01:09 AM
It doesn't say "live" anywhere on the album cover...

... therefore I'm assuming this could actually be a proper studio record with Trevor.
Just the thought made me jizz.

Still loving this cover! Also I really love Buzz and Dale's attitude and
approach to things. Sometimes they're a 4-pc, sometimes they're a 3-pc,
sometime they're a 3-pc with Dale on bass, sometimes they're a 2-pc;
but no matter what they are ALWAYS Melvins

There's no way this is a live album. They just released Sugar Daddy like 4 months ago, which was on the cusp of the massive Endless Residency output and before that Pick Your Battles. This is studio stuff all the way. My guess would be Electroretard type tunes (previously suggested in this thread). Some covers, some reworkings of old tunes, b-sides, clearing the vault type stuff.

Hope your right. Live albums are always, well just never live up to what it actually is like live!

Studio albums are kickass and usually means new songs.

I really hope were gettin' two studio albums this year.

That's what I really love about Buzz and Dale's attitude and approach
to things. Sometimes they're a 4-pc, sometimes they're a 3-pc with Dunn,
sometimes they're a 3-pc with Dale on bass, sometimes they're a 2-pc;
but no matter what they are ALWAYS Melvins

cool, two peice melvins, That's just Dale and his speedo Right?

Hm, melvins Lite, what, so they are cans of musical Soda?

Trevor seems pretty down to rock in the melvins > he Is one cool dude.

plus he's about Buzz's height so It balances out thier Stage presence.  :lol: He's been In and out of the melvins now for many years.

I loved Kevins's "a woman's work is Tevor Dunn" T-shirt.

Trevor Is actually a damn good writer, from that one "laundry" article.

The 2-pc would be just Dale and Buzz. They performed in that configuration as
recently as Jan 21st during the Spaceland residency in California.

They played a set as a duo, then followed it up with Bullhead performed by the full lineup.

dying to hear this shit!!!!
one thing though, trevor's 'dunn' so many other brilliant things other from bungle in the 11-12yrs since they split, as well as during bungle's existence. why not mention he's from fantomas or the houdini live album?
...give the guy some credit for something recent- and more relevant to the melvins!  8)
 
yeah i'm biased and think he's the greatest bassist on earth, but to me bungle is a thing of the past and i can't see any reunion happening there. Trey's got SC3, Patton's got a million things and Trevor's got his own projects and alot of shit going on all the time, now seemingly inc. Tomahawk (who i've never found more than slightly interesting even w/Kevin)- and Bar and Heifetz live in Australia.

Trey and Patton solved their problem quite a while ago now, Trey's played Mondo Cane shows and even a FNM King for a Day show, and now Patton's been on an SC3 song, so i think bungle are a thing of the past now- or it would have happened by now.

BTW, Trey said 'you've been had' when someone posted that fake Bungle (Patton-Spruance-Dunn) 2012 'promo' recently too, so i don't expect to see or hear from Bungle again.

anyway- TREVOR DUNN is the fucking greatest!!!
perfect fit for a band with the mighty Buzz and Dale!!!

heh, well, I personally I think Bungle split up for a LOT of good reasons, SC3 formet because I'm pretty sure Trey was getting sick of the Mr. Bungle Fans. and he and mike fell out. But mainly I think the bungle crowd was loud and obnoxious, all the live shit I hear from back in the day is enough to make you want to retire, drunk college idiots yelling dumb shit at you all night long...yeah why do you think the Mimicry website forum has been kept hidden.   :-$  Downlow guys...SHHHHhh. keep it DL.

Their 21st studio album a slightly mellower affair with bassist Trevor Dunn

Tireless sludgemuffins the Melvins are as busy as ever in their 29th year. Their 5-track Scion A/V EP The Bulls & The Bees is due March 13; their 13-LP Sugar Daddy Live split 12" series is slowly rolling out via Amphetamine Reptile; they're making their network TV debut on Last Call with Carson Daly in April; and they're weeks away from launching a 21-date tour with fellow noise-metal muckos Unsane. But right now, all Melvinmaniacs are turning their eyes to Freak Puke, the band's 21st studio album. Recorded without the Big Business half of their freight train double-drummer line-up, veteran guitarist King Buzzo and drummer Dale Crover teamed with Trevor Dunn, famed bassist of Mr. Bungle, Fant

His favorite Simpsons episode is King Sized Homer, where Homer gets really fat so he can work from home. He has a line in the episode where he says, "I don't want to look like a weirdo. Just get me the mumu." He's also quoted the Simpsons at least once in the past from the episode when Krusty fakes his own death to get out of owing the IRS back taxes. In the episode he flies all over town at night waking everyone up. One of the houses he flies by is Napu, the owner of the Kwik E Mart, who says "Sheba H Vishnu!" Buzz quotes that in the WMPG interview (INTERVIEW!) back in '99.

That's my nerdiness for the day.

...when trevor sang going blind with them in sydney on the australian geek show tour (melvins/fantomas/tomahawk) and trevor drank a bottle of whiskey and passed out, when he was being dragged from the stage, dale said:"i am bassplayer, please insert alcohol!"

strikingly similar to bender saying: "i am bender, please insert liquor" in the futurama ep 'how hermes requisitioned his groove back' i thought.

anyway, if buzz watching no tv is how he gets so much done, i'm glad he doesn't watch any!

preorder from amazon, and if newbury comics have signed copies, then cancel your amazon order and list the reason for cancelling as due to signed copies being available from newbury if/when the time comes and they do have signed copies.

"Just for this session, I think we recorded, more than 50 songs. With Trevor we recorded enough for two albums and more. All of that will see the light of day eventually. "

yeah- he did say they don't have a 'normal' type band website because there 'would not be a word of truth on it' all those years ago.

i never know whether buzz is being serious or fucking with the interviewer, so yeah, he could be over-exaggerating the tv thing because he thought it was (and is really) a ridiculous question to ask him, being when he usually gives the most extreme answers like that one.

I could have sworn I read an interview a while back where Buzz straight up said, "I lie in interviews".  So there you go.   :lol:

I actually just stumbled on that interview.

M.I: Interviews through email suck, don't they? Maybe it's your neighbourhood cleric or something in front of the screen answering my questions instead of you. How can I be sure it's the real MELVINS?
Do these sort of interviews suck? I suppose but who knows really? I could be and will be telling you all sorts of bullshit but I could and would be doing that even if you were talking to me in person. Almost every interview I've ever done has been nothing but complete bullshit. Except for that last sentence.

Great song!  It's probably the most "classic rock" sounding song they've done but it's still too weird for fans of that genre to like this song.  It's definitely a Melvins song.  I think a lot of us, unintentionally, were kind of expecting this one to sound like The Bootlicker or parts of Honky.  Right now it appears to be sounding more like a H.A.T. type of heaviness, like Black Stooges and Foaming.

But then again, I haven't heard the other 7 songs so I should probably keep my mouth shut.

it's only one song...

Thanx Conda, I was having the same problem.

More rocking than I was expecting from ... Lite, thou it's just one tune. Sounds alright, I dig the outro just before the "fight,fight,fight!!" part. But I got like the shittiest pc speakers circa 95? And they've been thrown, an stuff ... sure it'd sound better on my stereo.

There's a lick at the begining that reminds of something I just can't place ... Robin Trower, Taste? Something like that.

i can see what you mean but we know three songs so far (Wings cover,Growing Disgust and Leon vs Revol)and it seems this is not going to have that vibe. but there are a few things i like more than melvins "classic" line up

after a lot of listens i get a Primus and Kiss version of a H.A.T tune with a bit of Stoner Witch, all very good thing in a very good way , and no i'm not saying they were going for that and i'm not trying to label what this song is because it is nothing but (the) MELVINS

For some reason when I went to play this in Winamp on my Droid (through headphones of course), it started playing the middle of Joe Walsh's "Rocky Mountain Way".  For a minute I was like, "Wow, it does have that classic rock sound . . . HEY !! WAIT A MINUTE !!!"

Then I put the song on, and it actually flowed nicely from Rocky Mountain Way into it.  Definitely a cool vibe.  Heavier than what I was expecting.

The Melvins pretty much can do no wrong.  Can't wait for the full album.

Post by: (((O))) on May 10, 2012, 07:34:02 AM
Hard to say anything certain yet with only short snippets but it's very different in part it seems. 'Mr Rip Off' sounds very Sunn O)))!!! 'Inner Ear Rupture' appears to be a contemporary classical styled instrumental interlude there and the title track sounds like a great rocker. I wasn't too taken with the closer 'Tommy Goes Berserk' but a 50 second sample is neither here nor there really. Looking forward to hearing more.

Folks need to discover something other than Sunn as a reference point for something droning.  The bowed bass with strange percussion some ambient dissonance sounds more like soundtrack work, Morricone or something from an Italian horror film.  Sunn is a bit lazy.

Sounds like Buzz says "Freak Puke" in the song Freak Puke. It's not often the lyrics of a Melvins song actually say the title.  :)
Also sounds like every song on this album is in standard tuning, except for A Growing Disgust (Drop D)
Also, sounds totally awesome  8)

$4.99 shipping.    so the total was $17.98.  I was off by one american cent.   
I'm cool with it since its MELVINS and I never feel too guilty about dishing out $ that is soundly (pun intended) earned.
but at the same time I could have probably walked into the local record store and bought it for $12.   and this is why if its not in my mailbox on 6-5 I'm going to have a meltdown.

Seriously? So if you bumped into him after a show and asked him to sign some Melvins CD he'd flat out refuse to do so? If true what a prick.

I remember when I was like 18 or something meeting Faith No More at their hotel all of the guys were cool about signing 2-3 CD booklets that I had but when I went up to Patton with them and two Mr Bungle CD covers (so five all up) he signed the top one and then just handed them all back to me. I asked him if he minded signing the rest of them, he sighed and reluctantly did it. I still like his music but I'd turn my back on him if I ever saw him again the rude fuckwit some of these prima donnas should be grateful anyone gives a shit about them.

at least he did sign them, others would tell you to fuck off. i personally don't ask for autographs just so i don't have to deal in that drama.

I've never asked for an autograph from any member of MELVINS.

yet I still have all of their autographs 10 times over between show posters and these pre-order newberry comic cd's.

at this point all I want is that freak(puke)ing album.

You must've caught them on a bad night. When I was in my fan boy stage I ran into Patton, Buzzo, Kevin and Dale after a show at the Majestic in Detroit, and not a single one of them had a problem with signing stuff or taking pics with me or my friends. They also stuck around and chatted with us for about 20 minutes or so while they were loading out.

Sorry, I did not mean to offend.  When I saw them at the Grog Shop in Cleveland several times, I've only seen Coady and Dale walk around and hang out after they played, while Buzz/Jared just vanished.  Pretty much every time I saw them or Big Business play, I've always seen Coady and Toshi hang out after their set.  Coady even hangs around sometimes before they play to watch the opening bands, which I've always thought was cool.

I saw the Melvins in Buffalo in 2009 and Weedeater was opening. Coady was chilling in the front briefly watching some of Weedeater's set and I got to talk to him a little.  8)

Who would want to talk to them? Play music. If talk is what you want they should have a talk radio show...:) Just kidding of course. I have always found them approachable. I have talked with Buzz more than the rest of them. Coady and Jared are great to talk to and they were vvery happy to sign stuff. Honestly I have never really talked with Dale. He seemed very busy with other stuff. I tried to talk with Kevin back when he was in the group and he was obnoxious. This was back when things were not going well with him.

a freak puke review
http://www.craveonline.com/music/reviews/188807-review-melvins-freak-puke (http://www.craveonline.com/music/reviews/188807-review-melvins-freak-puke)


Melvins

Freak Puke

Ipecac Records

The Melvins have a new record out. It’s called Freak Puke. It’s actually out under Melvins Lite because it features only King Buzzo On guitar, Dale Crover on drums and Trevor Dunn on bass. Here is my review.

Women with breast implants are more likely to commit suicide so says a 15-year study carried out at Laval University.  Some women can reach orgasm via breast stimulation. Money is made out of cotton not paper. 57 on the Heinz bottle represent the amount of pickles the company used to have. On average 12 newborns are given to the wrong parents daily.

If you raise your legs slowly and lay on your back, you won’t sink in quicksand. Rats can last longer without water than camels. For reasons unknown, a duck’s quack doesn’t echo. The earth weighs around 6,588,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, tons. There are only four words in the English language that end in "-dous": tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous.

One of the mechanical sharks used in the original Jaws film was lost at sea. In Los Angeles it is illegal to bathe two babies in the same tub. In New York a license must be purchased before hanging clothes on a clothesline. In Youngstown Ohio it is illegal to run out of gas. James Brown convinced Al Sharpton to straighten his hair. The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and six days you would have produced enough energy to heat one cup of coffee.

A pig orgasm lasts for 30 minutes. A cockroach will live 9 days without its head before it starves to death. Butterflies taste with their feet. Donkeys kill more people on annually than plane crashes. Walt Disney was afraid of mice. Turtles breathe through their butts. A snail can sleep for three years. The electric chair was invented by a dentist. Mosquitos have killed more humans than all the wars in history.

So there is my review. If you ask why my review is this way, I’ll explain. The press release along with the Melvins new album Freak Puke has quotes of the band essentially shredding music critics. They use positive quotes about the band and negative quotes to display how much music critics don’t matter and how much they hate them. The Melvins even quote Lou Reed who said, “What kind of person WANTS to be a critic.” So in order to honor the Melvins wishes I have entered this review of the album because, good or bad, love it or hate it, the fact that I’m a critic means I suck.

Just the fact that you rag on a band about a song and you don't know or include that it's a cover song says to me that his opinion means nothing.

Opinions are opinions and I'll make my own soon enough.  But if you're going to talk badly about something, at least have the facts.

Ah, I was just trolling. Mostly.

Truth is, I've been listening to select Desert Sessions tracks quite a bit the last six months. It's hit or miss with them, really.  "I Wanna Make It Wit Chu" is better than the QOTSA version. This is probably my favorite:

Is anyone else pleasently surprised that Freak Puke hasn't leaked?

A little worried about it actually. In my experience ( I work at a record store) albums that aren't being downloaded aren't being bought either. Well publicized "leaks" (that is albums being available for illegal download before it's official release) almost without exception (I can literally think of only one exception) go hand in hand with notably strong initial sales. It's also part of a larger pattern of this album not really seeming to me to make the slash that new MELVINS material usually makes. Granted, I've been busy lately and haven't been looking like I typically do but I feel like this one might be going pretty unnoticed which will NOT be good for the MELVINS.

I can't wait for Amp Rep to put out the vinyl, for now Ill buy the CD on Tuesday. Being a bass player and a long time Melvins and Mr. Bungle lover this album has everything I have ever wanted. (Not a fan of the "lite" part of the title tho.)

It's different......which is fine by me. If I had to say what album it reminded me of most I'd say H.A.T.

Definately needs a few spins as expected. Off the bat I like the actual tune Freak Puke & Let Me Roll It best so far.

i just finished listening to it...i think it is one of their best....great pairing with trevor.....it's really really really fucking great.....i can see the comparison with h.a.t......also reminds me of stuff that would be on honkey in terms of loose guitar parts.....this is dales most different drumming to date, great compliment with the stand up bass.......very happy right now.....the vocals remind me of some of the new harmonizing stuff they do with big biz but they still through enough spice in their that still gives it it's own flavor.......

Title: Re: Melvins Lite - Freak Puke
Post by: MrLuck87 on May 30, 2012, 05:58:18 PM
 :D

On first listen, I love it!

1. Mr Rip Off - For some reason I was expecting this to be instrumental experimentation, thanks to the piss poor reviews I read, but it's a song.  The bowed standup bass creates a very cool atmosphere.  This song vaguely reminds me of their recent cover of Sacrifice with a mix of perhaps Tipping the Lion, but it really doesn't sound much like either one.  Very cool!

2. Inner Ear Rapture - This is the instrumental experiment.  I think it's pretty cool but I think a lot of people will probably think it's little more than Trevor dicking around on the bass.  I almost thought Dale was playing The Bloat for a second at the beginning.

3. Baby, Won't You Weird Me Out - Interesting intro that almost sounds like classical music before the Buzz riff comes in.  All three band members are doing a lot here!  Great song with lots of cool bass solos and drumming that's all over the place.

4. Worm Farm Waltz - Cool musicianship but the jury is out on the vocals...the end kind of reminds me of Frank Zappa's Willie the Pimp for some reason.

5. A Growing Disgust - Still my favorite song on the record and possibly one of my favorite Melvins songs.  Kind of reminds me of The Bit mixed with The Anti Vermin Seed but doesn't really sound much like either.

6. Leon vs The Revolution - Possibly one of the most 70's rock sounding songs they've done but I love it.  Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!

7. Holy Barbarians - Slow and atmospheric but not very heavy.  This one probably wouldn't sound too out of place on Honky.

8. Freak Puke - Cool effects!  A very unique song.  Another one of my favorites.

9. Let Me Roll It - If you've heard the live version there are no surprises here.  It's still a great song though and it's nice to have a studio version.  Buzz has a great voice!

10. Tommy Goes Berserk -  Starts out kind of mellow and then speeds up.  There's quite a bit going on here.  I really like it!  I have no idea why that one reviewer thinks it's a jab at Pink Floyd's Bike.  Am I missing something?


Freak Puke is kind of like the fucked up son of Stag, Honky, and H.A.T. but don't go into it expecting those albums.  It's one of the less accessible/weirder albums but it's probably a little easier to get into than Honky.  It rocks, but I wouldn't really call it heavy.

So far I think it's great!  I'm sure casual fans aren't going to like this one.

After one listen my stand out's are
Worm Farm Waltz

Holy Barbarian
Freak Puke
&
Tommy Goes Berserk

And maybe it is my all out love of Zappa and people like Buckethead that makes me come at this album and not find it all that inaccessible.

Digging the hell out of this one.

The middle part of "Worm Farm Waltz" just kind of reminds me of the intro to Willie the Pimp because of the stand up bass, which actually kind of sounds like violin there.  To me it sort of feels like the intro if it was stretched out and sounded like The Melvins, but I completely understand if no one else hears that.

Yeah that is the part I thought you meant. Some of the bowing Dunn does, from time to time, reminds me of how Sugarcane Harris would abuse his violin.

I was actually thinking that too.  It's widely been accepted that the guy reviewing the album had no idea what he was talking about.

I've read quite a few reviews and I guess I just missed that one.  8)

Yeah, that was a shit-caca review.
For the life of me, I don't hear any Tom Waits influence in Worm Farm Waltz.
Reading this after hearing the album completely shows he doesn't know what he is talking about.
He also needs a half-way decent editor.

Just listened through it PAUL. It's better than i was perhaps expecting. I've only heard it once so im a little tentative to judge yet but it sounds like a cool little album. 'Mr Rip Off' turned out to be a fair bit better than i expected it to be too. Alas, yes the cover and case still go tho im afraid.


I love how its not just buying it, It's buying it and throwing out the case. 
Oh, but he recycles.  Al Gore would be proud.

the intro of "inner ear rupture" reminds me heavily of a modern retake on "pick it 'n flick it" (sans the heavy metal guitar solo galore..). in what follows, trevor dunn reminds me why jazz is considered by "true" punks as "musical wanking", but of course us melvins fans love this sort of "weirdness", and if you don't... BANNED!

favorite songs upon first listen: baby... freak puke, roll it and tommy.. but besides the song i love the SOUND. very unusual for the melvins yet familiar. great album!

* freak puke: listen to this song and then to yes - yours is no disgrace.

the first 5 songs are very interesting. experimental and weird just as I suspected and I wanted

The rest of the album is too "classic hard rock" that they really like but not so much to me

However, even these songs (from 6 to 10) are good songs, and certainly better than what's out there...

Listen to the bass lines, are brilliant!!

If no ones posted this link yet you can listen to the whole album here....

I don't get it either. But this phenomenon is not just relegated to Melvins fans. There are a lot of people that like to crumple and fetish the artwork and read liner notes/lyrics during the first listen to an album. This kind of fandom is something I totally get, being the kind of guy who always listens to full albums, and not one to put his ipod on shuffle.  But when it is right there, to listen to, guilt free; it doesn't make much sense to me.

Nah for me it's the fact that I have shitty speakers on my computer, I could play it off of the internet through my PS3 and play it through the A/V system, but it still isn't my stereo, so I wanna wait for something I can play through that. I'm gonna buy it anyway, so want to listen to it first time through a decent system, afterwards a shit will not be given how I hear it, 2 tin cans and a bit of string or through a virgin otter's cloaca...

Post by: Mad Arab on May 31, 2012, 11:54:37 AM
Dag nabbit, I couldn't wait knowing the Melvins already have made it available to stream legit. I'm listening to it now as I type.

First impressions:

I like the first song so far...great stuff.

Just now starting the second one...Nice beginning...nice understated standup basswork

Yes, the third track is quite awesome. Noticing faint dialogue in the background due to the live mic on the standup bass. Is it intentional??? Maybe. The bass freakouts remind me of some looney tunes chaos which is always cool.

Worm Farm Waltz, the fourth track, is cool and vocals remind me at times of some Gene Simmons-esque harmonies in classic Kiss mode.

A Growing Disgust's beginning main riff, is reminiscient of Stoner Witch. Me likey alot.

Have already heard Leon Vs the Liberals before and have already given my seal of approval. It brings the Melvins rock.

Holy Barbarians-weird, short and cool.

Freak Puke from the starting riff is a great song but the "come on man" part annoys me.

Let Me Roll It...I loved Loved LOVED the live version cover. Now we are blessed with a studio version! Thank you!!! The Melvins have always taken covers and made them theirs. McCartney and Wings should thank THEM!

Tommy Goes Beserk another weird offering starting off in the Holy Barbarian vein. Bootlicker and Stag comes to mind listening to this as it progresses...half way through with Buzz anti-soloing/jamming fading into some reverse dialogue that swiftly fades into some more stand up bass and then a little pause of quiet and then weird loops of noise that is played forward and then reverse effected with echo and who knows what else. The end.


Overall first impression: very happy with this album.

That's not the issue for me. For me it's the don't open your presents before Christmas mentality. I listened to A Senile Animal, Nude With Boots, and The Bride Screamed Murder online before they came out and I felt guilty each time. I was thinking of breaking that streak this time around. I might cave in though.

Judging by the reception on this board so far, I think Freak Puke may be on its way to being the most well received new Melvins album of recent years, here on this message board. I remember when Pigs Of The Roman Empire came out there seemed to be a lot of mixed reviews and a lot of people were kind of underwhelmed at first. A Senile Animal seemed to get pretty good praise here. The reception for Nude With  Boots was probably a bit more mixed, and I know a lot of people here were disappointed by The Bride Screamed Murder (though, I still can't figure out why), but so far everyone here seems to love Freak Puke. It's the first time I'm not reading stuff like, "I wished it sounded like this or that" or

Yeah. 


Trevor adds something that makes this thing feel different than any other record of theirs.  The constant movement wouldn't be the same without his phrasing. 

Though I admit that I have been imagining what Kevin would have done. 

One high hat.  Two sticks.  Two feet.  More space in the picture.  I can breathe and feel the sway in these tunes.  That is probably close to impossible with two drummers, even drummers as good as Dale and Coady.  DALE on his own!  It's a sound and a feeling I have missed in a weird way, and I didn't realize it completely until listening to this record. 

Anyone reading this should know that the records that have been made with Coady are some of the best things this band has ever done, in my horrible opinion.  Goddamn it though, I love to hear Dale swing sticks.

That's why I steered clear of them. That's just not to way to hear any kind of new album though. I cannot wait to get my pre-order in my grubby little mits and cranking this properly on my sound system.

And what Rusty said about Dale's drumming is spot on. I love the Big Melvins, but there is just something to be said about Dale doing it alone.

I've heard that live vid so many times that it did seem the "proper" rendition. Amazing how well Buzz and Dale's voices go together at times. Still i like this studio version. In fact i didn't even notice it was just Buzz until people mentioned.

I call my local record shop today to see if they have it in yet (they ususlly have new releases the Thursday before release). They didn't and weren't even aware of it. So the owner jumps on the computer to see when it will come in ... as he's reading the info outloud he says:

"Ah, here it is, Melvins Life - Freak Pube ... yeah, it'll be in Tuesday"

I laugh, "ha ha ha ... Melvins Life - Freak Pube!" He laughs, "ha ha ha ... ooops! Melvins Lite -Freak Puke!" That was awesome!

Shit, now I wanna hear what "Freak Pube" sounds like ... bet is all that and a bag of bath salts!

Post by: Captain CoryCory on June 01, 2012, 10:29:51 PM
Heard the AOL (They're still around!?) stream... In a tiny aspect it feels like more of the same. Take out the upright bass and put in Big Business and one or two of these songs would fit right in with that lineup. Maybe I'm crazy but that's the vibe I get from tunes like Mr. Rip Off and A Growing Distaste/Disgust.

Yet at the same time that upright bass really gives it a distinctive feel and really kicks in the twisted perspective of Lite. I was expecting something along the lines of Bootlicker. This is closer to another Honky in some ways with a rawer, simpler experimentation. It feels very grunge-like to me as well.

Favorite tunes so far? The title track. Baby, Won't You Weird Me Out. Leon vs. The Revolution. Holy Barbarian. Tommy Goes Berserk.

Starts off a little slow but by track two or three I was sold. And the ending after Tommy Goes Berserk got me laughing too.

Scorpio from Dirty Harry  :)

To be honest I thought Freak Puke was pretty ordinary. I had relatively high hopes after seemingly returning to form with The Bulls & The Bees EP but the only song on there I rated was Let Me Roll It (?). I had to put TB&TB on afterwards just to make sure I wasn't imagining things and yeah that EP is outstanding and unfortunately shits all over FP.

After TBSM I never would've thought a new BB recording would be awesome and the Trevor Dunn one disappointing.

Freak Puke is more to the true form of Melvins weirdness and jamming than what they have done in recent years. This is not in anyway denigrating their releases with Coady and Jared I like them too. But being a long time fan, Freak Puke is more of what I am used to coming from them.

The only thing I would like to see coming from the dual drumming of Dale and Coady is more independent drumwork rather than both doing the same thing. If you are just going to do the same thing always, then whats the point of having two drummers?  Play around with right channel and left channel sweeps to really mess around with headphone users or listening on stereos and mp3 players.  There is just so much you can do with two drummers than playing in sync the same things.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I love the duel drumming and even though I don't play drums, I know that doing it must be very challenging and it testifies to Dale and Coady's talents. But with this said, I would like to hear each one playing different things to make it seem like there is a four armed drummer flailing on the skins.

Perhaps on the next album they could alternate. One song by Dale, the next by Coady and so on. That's actually something a bit typically askew i could imagine the band doing.

from what i've seen at the live shows i got the impression coady and dale don't play the same thing for a great majority of the material they wrote together. for pre-big melvins songs they play the same as each other more, but i like the way they do that with some new things here and there. they mess with the stereo, too. for example in the drum duel at the beginning of we are doomed you can hear one drummer on one side and the other on the other side.

Not sure what that means. Nude With Boots took me a relatively long time to get into but I've really grown to like it. It's one of my favorite 7 or so MELVINS albums. I took to The Bride Screamed Murder right away, and I like it, but I don't find myself reaching for it so much. I knew within 30 seconds that The Maggot was gonna wind up one of my favorites. (a) Senile Animal, also a favorite, took some time.  We'll see how Freak Puke stays with me, but I'm already pretty sure it's the album of the year.

Surprisingly I really liked it the first time I heard it. I'd have it in my top 5 Melvins albums but still think HAT is far and away their best album.

The more I listen to Freak Puke, the more I like it. It's definitely a great record. I'm having a hard time picking out a favorite song. Baby Won't You Weird Me Out, Worm Farm Walt, Leon Vs. The Revolution, and Tommy Goes Berserk are all up there. Is anyone else reminded of Prig in Tommy Goes Berserk? Particulary Buzz's vocals in the first part before it gets all Sonic Youthy.

Just curious if anyone's going old school like me and going to the store to buy it tomorrow? It's probably mostly nostalgia driven but it is so fun to wait for that special day and go into the store and see the album in person. You've seen the cover for what seems like a lifetime but never in person, and now you are holding what you have been waiting for in your hands! You quickly grab one like there's about to be a stampede for them...even though you are one of the only people in the store.

Once inside your car you attempt to listen to it. Sadly you can't open it...you just cut your fingernails the night before and the shrink wrap won't budge. You curse the bastards who have packaged it in such a way, then finally I am able to get that once piece of my thumbnail that the clippers missed under the lip of the front of the case. I rip that shit open like a kid on Christmas and pop in my cd player. At that single moment I am happy. I forget that I'm driving in to work, I forget that my car is way overdue for service that I can't afford. I forget my dad has Alzheimer's and doesn't know who I am anymore. I forget all the bullshit and just enjoy this wonderful treat that is Buzz,Dale and whatever lucky bastard(s) they hired to make this album. I just enjoy the droning sounds of a band I have liked since I was a kid. ...and the best part is that since it's the Melvins I won't have to wait 3-4 years to have this moment again. I will most likely be having it in the next 6 months! I FUCKING LOVE THE MELVINS!!!

Indeed, 30 or so yrs. shopping the same shop has it's perks ... they usually have things in about a week early ... and then so do I! Though they slept on this "Freak Pube". So, Tuesday it'll have to be.

Back in the 90's when me and my buddies were dropping every last cent we had there (i'd say I spent $50-100 in there every week or so for about a decade) they used to just lend us the used cds we couldn't afford so we could burn them ... cool cats!

Thanks man, sorry for being all "Debby Downer" there. I was basically saying how buying a new record from one of my favorite bands can make me forget even the worst shit. Listened to half of it...and I love it. I knew I would because I have never heard a bad album that involved Trevor Dunn! (not to slight buzz and dale) So far I really dig it, the screeching bowing on the upright with Buzz's droning guitars almost makes ya feel like I'm on a bad trip and hallucinating bugs crawling all over my skin. Only criticism is I'm not so fond of the backwards cover on the CD. It'll do until Amp Rep releases a proper LP.  :D

Other than the recent (last 5 yrs.) AmRep vinyl releases; every Melvins 12"/10"/7"/Boxset/CD/VHS/DVD I've bought since 1987 has been purchaced at the same inde record shop ...

This one will be no different

I suspect I'll drive over on my lunch break tommorrow. So as to be ready to crank it on the deck after work as I bbq some huge ass sirloin burgers.

make friends w/your local record store owner,youll get everything a week before it hits the streets.

Indeed, 30 or so yrs. shopping the same shop has it's perks ... they usually have things in about a week early ... and then so do I! Though they slept on this "Freak Pube". So, Tuesday it'll have to be.

Back in the 90's when me and my buddies were dropping every last cent we had there (i'd say I spent $50-100 in there every week or so for about a decade) they used to just lend us the used cds we couldn't afford so we could burn them ... cool cats!
where in town do you go? rotate and soundscapes have been pretty lax on getting things in on time...

Encore Records in Kitchener (born an raised there, though I'm about a half hour outside town these days).

In Toronto it'd be Rotate (Soundscapes is too expensive), Hits or Misses and though I haven't been in a couple years Peguin Music. Is Record Peddler still around ... that was my fave place in the late 80's (when they used to be across from the Gardens).

Ok after many listens to the album Freak Puke, Worm Farm Waltz is one of the greatest songs i have ever heard!!! the last half of that song is amazing, the bowed bass work is brilliant right after the line "we hear things all the time that are not there" (and i can hear that with that bass line with a really heavy distorted guitar and pounding drums, oh man i can see great variations of this song performed live) and the noise at the very end is killer!!!  AAAAAAHHHHHH THIS IS SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Post by: dead mike on June 05, 2012, 09:22:28 PM
OK, having given it a couple spins this evening, I have emerged from my cone of seclusion, and one thought reverberates in my headbone: This album rocks. Better than rocks; it rules. I've been wanting the melvins to depart from the arena-rock groove they've been in for the better part of a decade, to do something left-of-center -- which for the melvins means something that even a seasoned fan would scarcely recognize as being from the melvins, a la The Bootlicker but NOT The Bootlicker.

Freak Puke is that something.

My favorite song thus far: "Tommy Goes Berserk."

That's all for now. Maybe I'll add some more thoughts tomorry.
Title: Re: Melvins Lite - Freak Puke
Post by: Metalhead Cow on June 05, 2012, 10:14:48 PM
Freak Puke really is great. Here's some scattered thoughts:

-I love it whenever Buzz says "cowboy" in Leon Vs. The Revolution
-It's really cool to hear how Trevor uses the stand up bass in each song. The bowing is really fucking cool in Holy Barbarians. Holy Barbarians has a really great vibe. It makes me think of Honky and The Bootlicker.
-Speaking of The Bootlicker, the vocals in Tommy Goes Beserk remind me of the vocals in Prig. I get a big Prig vibe from the first half of this song, even if the two songs don't really sound alike. Is there acoustic guitar in Tommy Goes Beserk? It sounds like it to me, and I think the only other Melvins song with acoustic guitar is Prig (and Cottonmouth)
-Dale's brush playing in Mr. Rip Off is great.
-I really love Buzz's guitar solo in Baby, Won't You Wierd Me Out. I get the sense that it's very loose, and will probably be played differently each time, but the version that came out on the album is really great.
-Love the contrasting vocals in Baby, Won't You Wierd Me Out
-the drum, bass stuff in Baby, Won't You Wierd Me Out is awesome
-I really like the sound of bowed bass and the general sounds that are possible from stand up bass. This alone, makes Inner Ear Rupture a great track to listen to.
-Inner Ear Rupture reminds me of Pick It N' Flick It.
-I like the the high pitch vocal overdubs in Freak Puke (the song). It sounds kind of psychotic. This song kind of reminds me of The Stupid Creep, only better.
-The middle section of Tommy Goes Beserk is quite Sonic Youthy.
-Tommy Goes Beserk joins the ranks of Up The Dumper, PGx3, Skin Horse, Prig, With Teeth, and others, that to me are kind of uplifting sounding... I don't know if that will make sense to anyone but me, but yeah.
-I love it when Buzz says "mollusk" in Tommy Goes Beserk

Interesting thoughts.
I think Freak Puke is going to be my album of the year.
I was a little worried that Trevor would over-use the bow, but turns out, all the bowing that he does on the album is really super.
I hope they play a ton of this album on the upcoming tour.

I'm having the exact same thoughts and enthusiasm about Tommy Goes Beserk, including "AAAAHHHH THIS IS SO GOOD!!!" :)
During my first few listens I it wasn't one of my favorites and now I can't stop playing it; every time I hear something new and even more mind blowing that the previous times.  From the first listen this reminded me of Mary Lady Bobby Kins - how it picks up with such excitement.  Does anyone else think there's a similarity?

I did. thanks a lot.  When I get sec I'll try it out.  MHC figured out a guitar part on Kool Legged for me that I couldn't.  It's the "now you're so forgiven" part.

I'd try it out now but the kids are asleep and that is a guitar part you gotta crank up!

This is reason 1-101 why I only do pre-orders if the deal is super good, or if it comes with a high-res download along with the album.

Last time I was this stoked about a MELVINS release was H.A.T.
Tommy goes beserk is so refreshing.  the entire release is sooo nice
and quiet then the build up...

simply clean and heavy. The vocals are all over the place in a pure way.
Dale's talents shine. 

I remember seeing the first show of MELVINS lite in San Diego last year.  The set was
strong.  Mostly MELVINS covers w/ Trevor fuckin shit up in an awesome way.
Never would have thought the new stuff would rock so hard and heavy.

Way to go MELVINS =D&gt;

Agree.
Based on the stripped down drums and the stand-up bass, I was not expecting this album to rock as much as it does.
I guess though, in hindsight, I shouldn't have been all that surprised.

Here's the review I posted to amazon.com:

Best Melvins album since The Bulls and The Bees

Wait, didn't the Melvins just release and tour on their excellent free EP, The Bulls and The Bees? How is it possible they already have another album out? Well, it's true. They're already back with a new full length album and they're planning a record breaking tour in the fall.

Freak Puke does have a pretty big difference from Melvins albums that have come out in recent years. Second drummer Coady Willis and bassist Jared Warren are not on this album. Instead we have Trevor Dunn playing stand up bass. He's no stranger to The Melvins though. He played bass on their "Houdini Live 2005" album and has also played with Buzz and Dale in Fantomas.

Needless to say this album sounds a lot different than their recent efforts (not that their recent efforts sound the same). If it sounded like any previous Melvins I would probably compare it to Honky or Stag, maybe even the Bootlicker although I think the album is much heavier than The Bootlicker. Like their other albums it really is it's own unique entry in their discography.

Honestly, this is one of the hardest albums in their discography to review. Sometimes it reminds me of their more 70's rock inspired songs (Leon vs the Revolution), sometimes it reminds me of their heavier sludge work (A Growing Disgust), sometimes it reminds me of an odd hybrid of Trevor's jazz influences combined with Buzz's indistinguishable guitar work (Baby, Won't You Weird Me Out), and that's barely the tip of the iceberg. There's a lot of depth to these songs and it's impossible to notice everything going on after a few listens.

So should you get the album? Absolutely! However, if you're just wanting a straight forward hard-rock album that's going to make sense on the first listen you probably aren't going to find that here. However, if you've been dying for an album that's weird, challenging, and rocks Freak Puke will likely be your favorite album of 2012. Buy it and support the hardest working band in the business!

When the Melvins teamed up with Big Business, it felt like they were, in effect, creating a sort of "Melvins squared." Jared Warren and Coady Willis seemed to be a perfect fit with Crover and Osborne, with the two pairs doubling up to create what could almost be described as a four-piece duo. After three albums together, Crover and Osborne return with their stripped-down Melvins Lite lineup on Freak Puke, an album that finds them shifting away from the big sludge excursions of their recent work in favor of something altogether weirder.

Something John Peel said about The Fall always makes me think relates to Melvins also.

Came in the mail today, almost done with the first listen now... Pretty sick... It definitely has a different flavor than the last few which I'm really digging, with the sorta creepy riffs, heavy freak outs, and mellow sections.. Some of the stuff seemed to give off a stoner witch / honky vibe... And as a bunch of people have said already, trevor's upright playing is a cool twist.

I haven't received this message yet but I fully expect to. Every new U.S. release I've ordered from amazon.co.uk has been delayed, I suspect it's policy to inform the buyer after the release date otherwise they'd go elsewhere. I can wait a few more days. Adds to the suspense.

Whats in the booklets? Extra artwork/lyrics? I now feel I shortchanged myself just buying the CD, but I wanted to avoid the disappointment that lots of folks are feeling who are still waiting on the CD days after the release.

Side Note: FUCK that AV Club review. That shit really grinds my gears!!! It basically sounds like it is written by someone thought the  Houdini and California albums were gonna fuck and give birth to an awesome baby! I'm sure the person only listened to it once or twice. If you want some candy coated bullshit like Nickelback you can listen once,but Melvins Lite is like a fine wine that gets better with age and is appreciated more and more over time. Melvins lite is like the solid spruce top on the guitar you just bought, you gotta let that puppy age and it will sound better and better over time. Every day I listen to the CD I appreciate it more in a different way and notice things I didn't notice before. Last piece of my anger driven rant...fuck anyone who uses the word "muddily" in a review. /end rant

hence your status as fan #27 on "the list".   :D

These better be some damn amazing autographs!

I've got bad news for you my friend.   

it's basically "DALE"  "DUNN" and "BUZZ"   and if you can tell one from the other you have earned your rightful ranking in the MELVINS fandom hierarchy.

but the good news is you get 2 booklets.  the signed one loose and then the packaged cd.

Whats in the booklets? Extra artwork/lyrics? I now feel I shortchanged myself just buying the CD, but I wanted to avoid the disappointment that lots of folks are feeling who are still waiting on the CD days after the release.

Side Note: FUCK that AV Club review. That shit really grinds my gears!!! It basically sounds like it is written by someone thought the  Houdini and California albums were gonna fuck and give birth to an awesome baby! I'm sure the person only listened to it once or twice. If you want some candy coated bullshit like Nickelback you can listen once,but Melvins Lite is like a fine wine that gets better with age and is appreciated more and more over time. Melvins lite is like the solid spruce top on the guitar you just bought, you gotta let that puppy age and it will sound better and better over time. Every day I listen to the CD I appreciate it more in a different way and notice things I didn't notice before. Last piece of my anger driven rant...fuck anyone who uses the word "muddily" in a review. /end rant

i tend to ignore the music side of the AV club, especially when it comes to anything metal or related. they just either bandwagon on bad hipster metal or black/death metal and ignore the good stuff. the fact that this got a bad review is a good sign in my opinion....

I picked up the CD today. I love all the cool insects in the album booklet. Has anyone been able to deciper that long message in cursive written above the insects?

I was looking at that when I first opened it.. My first thought was "I wonder who will be the first person on the Forum to decipher that"  :lol:

Speechless.

Last time I was this stoked about a MELVINS release was H.A.T.
Tommy goes beserk is so refreshing.  the entire release is sooo nice
and quiet then the build up...

simply clean and heavy. The vocals are all over the place in a pure way.
Dales talents shine. 

I remember seeing the first show of MELVINS lite in San Diego.  The set was
strong.  Mostly MELVINS covers w/ Trevor fuckin shit up in a awesome way.
Never would have thought the new stuff would sound so MELVINS!!

Way to go MELVINS =D&gt;
thanks for the songs..

I woke up to find my Signed copy in the mailbox.. Today Will be a good day  :D

where do you live jonE5? that might give me a better idea on when to expect mine

I'm in Upstate NY (Closer to Boston than you.. I'd guess that you got yours today)

Anyone else in the UK got an email from Amazon overnight saying:

Quote
We regret to inform you that the following items have been delayed as we are still awaiting stock from our suppliers :

 Melvins "Freak Puke"
   Estimated arrival date: June 19 2012 - June 23 2012


?

Myself and a friend got the same mail.  Not the first time an Ipecac release has failed to arrive in the UK on time recently  :(
I haven't received this message yet but I fully expect to. Every new U.S. release I've ordered from amazon.co.uk has been delayed, I suspect it's policy to inform the buyer after the release date otherwise they'd go elsewhere. I can wait a few more days. Adds to the suspense.
It's lightly cheaper via other sellers on Amazon. I might get it from there. Possibly.

Nice tip, I've just cancelled my proper Amazon order and re-ordered through an American reseller with it in stock, saving myself

I keep thinking I'm hearing something else at the end of Tommy Goes Beserk. I want to say "5ive". Anyone remember that one? I have it here somewhere but I can't seem to find it to check.
What the band 5ive?

No, it was the song that was called "five". For some reason I remember it being spelled "5ive". I don't know if it was a cover but I'm guessing maybe it was? It was on a tape of a radio interview at a place called Bullmoose Music. I think the station was called WMPG. Anyway, it was sort of a repetitive, noisyish thing that had Dale shouting, "FIVE!.....FIVE!......FIVE!" near the end. The tape must be in a box around here somewhere but I guarantee I'll never find it. (FIVE! dollars says Buttholeman or maybe Anaconda comes up with an mp3 within half an hour.)

I'm looking for the mp3 as I type, but it was them doing their version of
TG's 'Five Knuckle Shuffle'. The title was abbreviated to '5ive' on most
of the mp3 rips on Limewire, etc.

It was originally called 'Trackfive' though on the Throbbing Gristle tribute album 'In Formation'

I really could not be anymore pleased with this album. Of course, like most Melvins records, it'll take a while to settle in but HOTDAMN what a great first listen. I'm gearing up for bed and getting ready for round two right now.

It's jazzy and weird but not what I had in mind for the album as a whole. Lots of twists and curveballs - just how I like it.  Trevor on stand-up is just brilliant. The scratchy string play on top of the heaviness of the Buzzo riffs is just spectacular.  Dale's got that Buddy Rich groove going on at times, too. It's weird to hear him play so soft and fast, but dammit it works so well with everything else that's going on. 

Other than the production sound, I'm not really hearing the HAT and HONKY elements that everyone else seems to be referring to. It's brand new, and stands tall as its very own thing. OH. And I absolutely adore the Paul McCartney cover. Bravo, Melvins. Can't wait to make history with these guys and see them perform these songs live.

I'm so glad I waited to take it in properly. Things of greatness should not be rushed.
After all, anything worth doing, is worth doing right.

Yeah i really like that one too. When it didn't appear on Bride i thought it never would but it's so nice to see them find a home for it. I hope they eventually record 'Mr DNA' after they covered it a few years back. That was a cool cover.

My 2 cents (not by Kent Brockman)...
Most impressive!  I wish inner eat rupture was longer.  A lot of the songs remind me of T-Rex.  I don't know much T-Rex but some of the songs have a T-Rex feel.  Sounds like a a lot of Dale on vocals which is a plus.  His drums sound amazing by the way!  This seems like a perfect album for any Melvins fan regardless of what 'era' one might favor. 
Great Mccartney cover though i prefer it live.

Great Record as John Lennon from the Beatles might say.  :)

"Let Me Roll it" might be the closest-sounding cover song they've done yet!

While they aren't worlds apart by any means, the Melvins definitely did tweak this song in a few odd ways. I was teaching myself the Wings version of "Let Me Roll It" before I even heard the Melvins lite version (otherwise I probably wouldn't have even noticed). So basically the verse of the song alternates between a F#m and an E. Strangely enough, while McCartney starts the vocals on the E chord, Buzz starts the exact same vocals in on the F#m. Somehow it completely works and is hardly noticeable though.

Also, he cuts off the fourth iteration of the chorus....possibly because McCartney goes higher in the vocal range on that part, and it is a little more challenging to sing? Other than that just a busier guitar part in the Melvins lite version where Buzz is kind of mimicking the bass line of the Wings version. Once again though, it totally works and is totally Melvins.

You know as a general rule, I am not a fan of covers. Well Mark Lanegan put out an absolutely brilliant covers album, but aside from that one fluke, I am not a huge fan of the idea.
Well, if there are two exceptions to this rule of mine, the Melvins are it. I can honestly say that I find all of their cover songs to be, at the very least, interesting.

I haven't received this message yet but I fully expect to. Every new U.S. release I've ordered from amazon.co.uk has been delayed, I suspect it's policy to inform the buyer after the release date otherwise they'd go elsewhere. I can wait a few more days. Adds to the suspense.


Forget friggin amazon.co.uk or .com......Piccadilly Records in Manchester have it in and they ship fast.....

So, it IS Amazon. That surprises me.

Worm farm waltz is a great song.  The waltzy part reminds me of a Meat Puppets song off of meat puppets 2 album...the name escapes me.

Live is always so much better.

On a side note, it's interesting to me that no one has complained about the length of Freak Puke even though it's a second shorter than Nude With Boots!  I never got that complaint to begin with but it does seem like people who brought that up were just nit picking the Jared and Coady line up.

That's a good point. I've never had a problem with the length of any of their albums-They're fine the way they are. I think it's silly if people were complaining about the length of Nude With Boots. Bullhead, Lysol, Ozma (without Gluey Porch Treatment tracks) and The Bootlicker are all shorter I think. It's interesting to note that A Senile Animal, Nude With Boots, and Freak Puke are all around 41-42 minutes. Bride is a little bit longer-around 45 minutes, according to my itunes. I don't think any of this really matters though.  :P

The other day I had freak puke in the car and I was pulling out of a parking lot. There were cars parked to my left and right. I turned on the car and the CD resumed where I left it. It was right at the end of Worm Farm Waltz with the cool noice outro. As I was pulling out I imagined that the music was actually the sound of my car scraping against the cars next to me.  :lol:

picked it up over the weekend, listened three times just yesterday.  it's good.  very good.  the choice to use the upright bass was a perfect one, if you ask me-- especially when dunn uses the bow.  and i love love LOVE the fact that they didn't use any bass amps -- it sounds so much more natural when it's just a mic.  i like when you can hear the room..... 

i don't think it's better or worse than any of the BB lineup stuff.  it's just... a little different.  different is good.

a lot of the production of the bass and drums reminds me of primus...  this is not a bad thing at all. 

great album.  can't wait to see it live. 


oh, also-- does anyone know why buzz stopped using les paul guitars?  that's my only complaint: those aluminum guitars make his tone seem kinda thin.  it's not awful, but i much prefer the big heavy melvins guitar sound.

not really. the 1940s drumset, the standup bass, and what i think are different guitar tones all make a new sound for the melvins. the vocals, guitar and drums are recognizably buzz and dale of course but it seems more like a new band than a melvins album. its melvins LITE

His guitar tone live is the best I have ever heard it. The EGC guitars sound Brutal, and you can tell how much fun he is having playing them. The sound is not thin.. but it is brighter. It kind of cuts through everything like a knife.

I agree, the saying is true...Only a Gibson is good enough! I think Les Pauls are heavy too...that's why I use an SG. In Buzz's defense I think he's rocked a les paul long enough where he's entitled to a change at this point. I don't dislike his current tone, it is bright and cuts but I do miss some of the more chunky tone of the Les Paul.

Trevor Dunn is like a big bottle of ketchup. He makes just about anything he is involved with better!!! Can't wait to hear him on the new Tomahawk album when it comes out in the fall. Freak Puke is an amazing album, however it does require a bunch of listens to really get into it because it is very complex. Trevor really utilizes the stand up bass to it's full potential. Oh and Buzz and Dale are the shit like always!  :D

Oh no i don't think you're stupid at all nor was i trying to make fun. Im just so used to going off on tangents on here and being silly.

For what it's worth i think i may agree with you. Trevor is a great player. I do find i can't hear him in parts of the album but the parts i do find audible he fits right in there. I loved his work on Houdini Live too. Ultimately, although i am not overly blown away by this release like most here seem to be, i do certainly hope to hear more Lite releases in due course. It's a compelling mix for sure.

According to my Itunes, I have just over 40 plays on Freak Puke, which is not all that surprising, as I tend to just loop new albums once they come out.
Put me in the camp of folks who hope this is not a one-off, and that the rumored other 40 or so songs do, one day see a release.
Personally, I would totally dig a sequence of albums that goes one four-piece, one three-piece, one four-piece, one three-piece. Ect, ect, ect.

My apologies I think I misinterpreted what you were saying... it took me a good 5+ listens to really get into it completely.  I don't love every track but the ones I do I am really feeling. Whether its your cup of tea or not it's at least a very interesting record. I can't wait to see Trevor play with them in New Haven!

in the liner notes it says no amp for the bass was needed, so what, did they just mic it, or plug it into the soundboard, I'm not recording savvy.

They most likely used a few microphones in different spots, definitely one near the f-holes on the bass where the main sound comes out. Also possibly one near the top off the bass, and even possibly a further away room mic. They might have also used a pickup on it and run it through a direct box directly into the board. Then the blending begins  :D However they mic'd it up it sounds good, but then again when your using a sweet Czeck bass from the 50's that helps the sound too!

Heres how I believe he got the sound at the end of Worm Farm Waltz which he posted on his site:

i can, but it changed when he went from using tube amps to solid state and dod pedals. the guitars will add to that brightness/thinness. plexi will never have the sustain the pauls had, but hey, its his gig, not ours. and i think he still uses the pauls in the studio. there's a couple of pics of them. those guitars just can't handle the road like a plastic and metal guitar.

He said that Trevor Dunn was in Tomahawk.. and then I turned it off.  :lol:

         -I hate when people that are supposed to be reviewing something come right out of the gate with wrong information.


    IDIOT!    Stop Talking!!

Technically he is correct, Trevor Dunn is the new bass player for Tomahawk at least according to their Facebook page.
Oh, and here is a small sample of one of the songs on the upcoming album, "Oddfellows"

I hate to even admit I read Pitchfork from time to time, but no suprise they give Freak Puke a 6.7 out of 10.
Chicken Switch is still the highest rated Melvins album (with a 7.8 score) according to the geniuses over at Pitchfork.

Not really surprising since they gave HAT a 5.6

Technically he is incorrect because he says "has been in a lot of bands" and he shows a picture of the first Tomahawk album.

It looks like two people who follow that guy think that Stag was their last solid album.   :-s

i give richdork about as much credit as idiots like christgeau (or however you spell it). if something gets panned by any of their writers, the artist in question must be doing something right. they recently crapped all over the new future of the left album and andy falkous tore the review (and reviewer) apart quite brilliantly in his blog. fuck 'em i say. they're too busy blowing smoke up the asses of third rate black metal bands or ear destroying garbage like tuneyards.

He can't even count. Even if you disregard all their collaborations, mangled demos, 6, 8, 10, 26 songs, the solos, and the re-release of Gluey, they've still released more than 18 records. What the fudge, man. His lack of research is a little disappointing.

I really like the new album... still trying to figure out where I'd rank it with the rest of their stuff.  Its hard because its so weird and different from most of their stuff.  I like the crazy jazzy stuff that Trevor is adding.  The album has a creepier, more quiet tone to it that I'm really diggin on.  And as usual, Toshi Kasai's production is top notch.

I agree but as far as the BB recordings, I feel Bulls and Bees is the best one they have done yet. I almost feel it lost some of it's Thunder having Freak Puke released so close. Please won't someone think of the children and not dis-credit the Bulls and Bees EP!!! :lol:

Well, wikipedia counts Freak Puke as their 18th studio album. That's the thing with the Melvins-everyone can agree that Metallica has 9 studio albums, High On Fire has 6 studio albums, Electric Wizard has 7 studio albums, etc. etc. etc.
But no one can agree how many studio albums the Melvins have released. They're kind of complicated with their releases.  This is how wikipedia lists it:

-Gluey Porch Treatments
-Ozma
-Bullhead
-Lysol
-Houdini
-Prick
-Stoner Witch
-Stag
-Honky
-The Maggot
-The Bootlicker
-The Crybaby
-Electroretard
-Hostile Ambient Takeover
-A Senile Animal
-Nude With Boots
-The Bride Screamed Murder
-Freak Puke

So that's 18 albums. Albums like Mangled Demos 1983, Singles 1-12, or EPs (Eggnog, The Bulls & The Bees) don't count. Wikipedia doesn't count Pig Of The Roman Empire, Never Breathe What You Can't See, and Sieg Howdy! as true Melvins studio albums, as they're collaborations. They're credited as Melvins/Lustmord and Melvins/Jello Biafra, not Melvins or the Melvins. But if you count those three albums than Freak Puke is their 21st studio album. If you count Pigs but not the Jello releases, than it's their 19th.

Personally, I consider Freak Puke to be their 21st studio album.

Surely Electroretard can't be considered an album? It's basically an EP of covers (of other bands & their own songs). Under no circumstances is that a studio album. I think it's debatable Prick is too but POTRE and the first Jello CD should be considered Melvins albums, Sieg Howdy was just a cash grab EP.

So IMO it's 20 albums (w/ Prick) or 19 albums (w/o Prick).

Interestingly Buzz considers Colossus of Destiny their best album despite being a live album.

I hate the fact that Eggnog isn't on that list. It's an EP, yeah, but it still feels like a studio album....
The Bulls and the Bees is about 2:30 longer (I know this because I timed it on my drive home from my studio-which is egg-sactly one Eggnog long) but that feels like an EP. Eggnog does not.

If Electroretard can make the list, I say COD, Prick, and Eggnog can, too.

I don't know why people feel the need to distinguish between studio albums and live albums and the sort. I mean if the band worked on an album, even if its a collab. or a collection of covers, they still put hours/days/weeks/months into it. They should have all of their releases acknowledged, not just the ones with original material.

And that's another great point, the only difference between EPs and LPs is play length... Disregarding someone's efforts because it only has 4 tracks is a joke. I'd rather have 4 kickass songs than 12 ok songs.

Yeah totally. I actually agree 100% and think it's the best remix treatment he's ever done. It is a proper throw back to Ministry of the early 80s and I absolutely love it. It is also proof that he can do good things if he applies himself which he simply does not anymore. That Sieg Howdy remix is actually a great example of just how lazy Jourgensen has become with production when you look at the millions of horrible remix/remixx/remixxxxx albums of Revco & Ministry he's pumped out over the last 5 or 6yrs not to mention the horrible quality of the studio records since Barker's departure.

To be fair I don't think he has anything to do with the remix albums as far as the remixes themselves. Plus you can only do so much with a pile of poo. And I'd say the Dalek remix is the best remix ever.

Freak Puke sounds more like a real Melvins album than anything done with the BB boys. The weirdness is back. I know Buzz & Dale make the Melvins into whatever the hell they want and of course ASA, NWB, and TBSM are real Melvins albums, but Freak Puke just sounds like the next phase of the band. It just doesn't feel like a one-off side project thing. It's got a bit of the old and a bit of new; new sound but some of that older feeling is back. It's like a looser, weirder Bootlicker.

You know you've been listening to a good album when the shit is stuck in your head for days. Buzz' riffs from Mr. Rip-Off and the title track have been looping in my head all the damn time. I'm standing there playing short stop on my beer league softball team and I got that fucking awesome middle part from Worm Farm Waltz just playing in my head.

Actually fired up my old but busted out ghetto blaster...broken deck, it plays but no sound anymore and I can slightly hear it and its slow..wow, like a tank with no track, still makes a good bunker.

I just love how the old ghetto blasters have AV inputs!

This thing sounds tight! I miss it, it made the best band recordings too.  :(

Still can use it on my desk for a decent set of powered AUX speakers anyway.

Actually truth be told i have warmed to Holy Barbarians quite a bit. It's a nice little chilled out break in the album before the title tune kicks in.

I finally got around to listening to my copy today. I can't stand Wings, but I was pleasantly surprised by "Let Me Roll It". . . And my goodness that standup bass sounds amazing! And I totally agree, that "Holy Barbarians" is killer!

Very solid album. Tracks 1 and 10 are sort of what I was expecting when I seen the name Lite.

Everything else either does a good job of entertaining me (Esp. Baby and Leon!) or makes me laff! The Wings cover and that hair-tastic title track leave me in stitches.

My only thing is the album slows a bit on Worm Farm Waltz and a Growing Disgust for my tastes but those songs are fine too.

I give it  8) 8) 8) 8)

Im listening to it right now, Its totally stuck in my head immediately.

great feel, good vibe....GREAT Energy

aw great, They should defienetly keep putting the LITE records, haha
I like it just as much as anything theyve done.

It would be neat gimmick if they could work with some other former bassists..and do that old hat (but I can think of former bandmates and would never want to have anything to do with them again ever LOL..)

Then again, Trevor Already has been working with Buzz for Ages..its about time they put this out. Im sure trevors Style and background etc.. will help appeal The melvins to another audience as well.

I forget my homework, I dont recall reading the interview for this album..the part about how they wrote this album exactly.

Im impressed to say the least, it works very well, the melvins are flexing out a limb or two for this.

I think they all need to work with eachother. I think It works well.

I mean they are willing to make it work on more than a musical level too.

I can tell they get along and enjoy working together.

Just seems like the Amrep stuff after Houdini was just awful..Prick is ok, but hated Stag..awful sold very quickly and I was a die hard fan then and Snivlem was pretty bad also. I just really prefer thier sludgy Boner records stuff, I like how they are trying new things but I find so much of so hard to listen to.I am going to see if the one one shows up on vinyl and then maybe buy it. I have heards parts of the new one, just seems too over produced and I hate to talk bad because I talked to them years ago at a show for Acid King and Altamont and they are really nice guys and Dale was such a cool person to talk to and they are very creative people.

  -I appreciate that the band continues to evolve/change/experiment, and take chances. That's why they have been around for 30 years and are still relevant. That's why they are my favorite band, they can and will play any style of music and they will do something creative and challenging with it.

   -I love the sludge stuff.. But you can't play the same style forever, you need to move on. At least you can go see them live and hear some of the older songs. Seeing the band do Eggnog live last summer was amazing!.. But so is the new album  Open your mind a bit more, there is a world of great things out there.

Have you ever listened to albums like "The Maggot", "Hostile Ambient Takeover", "Pigs Of The Roman Empire", "The Bride Screamed Murder" or even "The Bulls & The Bees"?

If you don't, well... believe me when I tell you this: you're missing some great stuff. Is not that they've forgotten their sludge side, they actually expanded their horizons, bringing more styles and sounds to the grill than most of the other bands from the so called "grunge era" have done so far.

Post by: (the) Razor on July 01, 2012, 12:58:52 AM
It's a funny thing though, Melvins have been around long time we kind of forget about them as a whole.  The bigger picture.

I guess when you are first attracted to them or hear them, say in 1992, then fair enough if they evolve out of that sound, they pick up a different audience, change their style and you don't like any of their release any-more etc.. all because they are different to what they were in the late 80's and early 90's. That's OK. To me, I have certainly not liked all their releases, and it's only now that I realise that it is actually a good thing and they should never have to take any criticism for that.

We're not talking about Metallica here, who radically changed for the simple fact of making more money and changed their sound back because the fans demanded it! Melvins changed because Buzz and Dale wanted to challenge themselves, the band, their song-writing, their skills, the fans and while it has not come off every single release, they should be recognised and admired for this simple fact.

I personally do not like the vocal stylings these last few records, but again I understand Buzz is trying to do something different and new and I applaud him for taking this chance it even though my ears don't. Same goes with his new tone. I mean if he stuck with the same sounding guitar since Lysol, what's the point?

Besides, it makes the Boner stuff even better because you know no band or Melvins will ever tread that ground again making it even more special to listen to.

This is what I love about the Melvins - everyone loves their own little period, or every release, or just even Houdini.

Fascinating band, and to be pulling this off since the mid 80's without burning out, giving up, or writing 10 Houdini's in a row to make millions when Nirvana was booming - simply makes them one of the best bands out there to be quite frank.

This album is a different thing but Buzz and Dale plus Trevor or however it is just makes sense on so many levels. Sonically the twists and turns and usage of certain structural elements to get technical about it and like ex-post/ipso facto analyse the music enhances the experience but just to listen where the band gets like they say in workaholics tight asshole, and watch the silence get filled and watch the noise and sound and blends of multi sound fade to silence. This album is good for that. Of course when The Bootlicker is probably my second favorite Melvins album, this type of thing does automatically remind me of how 'shocking' but not like actual shocks just artistically decision-wise a little curious to go SO quiet AND clean YET STILL THEY WERE slow as hell AT TIMES (JBFH).

I thought the same thing about Freak Puke reminding me of The Stupid Creep. I always got a Prig vibe from Tommy Goes Berserk, but I can hear the Mary Lady Bobby Kins similarities for sure, now that you mentioned it. Didn't think about Leon Vs. The Revolution being like Revolve, but I can hear that too now that you pointed that out.

Do you use decent headphones? Dale is present quite often but you're mixing the obvious Buzz parts with Dale parts. There's also some Trevor in there but he can sound a bit like Dale when he sings higher stuff.

What I like about this album is it is sort of hard to tell at times who is singing.  Sometimes it sounds like Buzz then transforms into Dale, then I realize they are both singing maybe IDK, but in general I feel I am getting a lot more vocals from Dale which is a good thing. I loved his voice ever since his solo ep and have always thought he should sing more in the Melvins, not that I'm complaining because Buzz is the shit!I gues sI just like hearing Dale sing too.

It's funny how my take on this album (bar Tommy...) has altered since release. I didn't really like 'Inner Ear Rupture' or 'Holy Barbarians' before but now think they sit really well within the scheme of things. That whole run from A Growing Disgust into Leon and then Holy Barbarians is my favourite part of the record.

It was really cool to see how they approached it in a live setting-it comes off  like a weird  melvinsy lounge song-the weird bass line, the timing of the song and of the drum hits, the timing of Buzz's sparse guitar lines. the "operation lee" (or whatever he says) parts where the song gets kind of tense and crescendos (while Trevor plucks the strings from underneath)-it's all just really quirky and cool. I think Holy Barbarians is a good example of the musical talent these guys have. They could have just recorded the song as a performance as how they play it live. But they made the studio version and live version there own separate creations, yet both instantly recognizable as the same song. I've always liked how this band has approached studio vs. live-In the case of Holy Barbarians the studio version is more ethereal and everything's more distant sounding. It kind of sounds like swarms of birds or locusts are coming. These guys know how to create good moods in the studio, and how to tear it up live.

So I've had a lot of time to figure this out, but I think my favorite song from the album is Baby Won't You Weird Me Out.  :) Mr. Rip Off is a close second.

It's pretty wicked, how it sounds like he's working a whammy bar on that track. I spent the whole summer leading up to that show wondering how he would play that live. No whammy, but still a very strange technique of shaking his hand on the fretboard. He's the master of that.

Random find while flipping through VNA magazine  8)
It's a great international mag, printed on heavy set paper. Not cheap stuff.
I needed this for research and bought it on a whim. Total surprise finding this inside!!


There's a small article on Skinner called THE PSYCHEDELIC DOOMSLAYER and this is one of the featured photos used. No mention of the mighty Melvins, unfortunately, but still pretty cool.

So you're saying that the binding on the ebook is superior to that of "Neither Here Nor There"?  :-k

I was listening to this and the Trevor songs on Sausages and Basses recently. I really am hoping for more of this soon. I love how Trevor and Dale gel together so well and I like how Buzz and Trevor's vocals trade off and harmonize, too.
