Good picture of Trevor.  He looks angry at the photographer or just uncomfortable.  I don't blame him.  Can't stand air travel.  Dale has the right idea there, sleep through the thing.

Dale has farted and Trevor has a keen sense of smell. That's what it looks like to me. I'm worried Trevor's going to do his back in before the tour's finished. The way he was flinging around that monster he plays made me think of all the Manual Handling and Lifting courses I've been on at work.

Title: Re: Melvins Tour Diary on Spin Magazine
Post by: Hortense on September 14, 2012, 08:36:09 AM
George Thorgood is, to my mind, a kind of hack hype man with a backing band.  Did you see Terminator 2:  Judgement Day?  George Thorgood and The Destroyers did that song Bad to the Bone that is playing early on in that film, I believe after Arnold is done mopping the floor with a bunch of bikers and steals one of their "choppers".

George Thorgood is much how Buzzo described him, someone who has made a living doing covers of old Blues numbers. 

His joke about him getting ma-ma-ma-ma-mad is in reference to this Bad to the Bone song in which George sings Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba- Bad to the Bone.

I mean we really have to hand it to you guys. You've made a fortune by playing and selling nothing but Bo Diddley and John Lee Hooker covers, and for that, we salute you! Thatis nothing short of a goddamn miracle! Now there's a record you can really be proud of!

Never wrote a single song and yet still sold millions of records and played concerts all over the whole world! Just like Madonna and Britney Spears! But let's get back to what we were originally talking about....

If you guys did actually finish the tour and you are nonetheless still not in the record book, well….Whatever, bitch.

haaaaaaaaaa. scathing.

As we were loading our gear after a really fun Fargo show, a stoner rock hipster in his mid 20s started talking to me about how I was obviously looking at his girlfriend as we were playing…Keep in mind that I don't see much at all while I'm on stage and I certainly don't focus in on one person or another during a performance. I'm busy, and the idea that I could be making eyes at some chick during our set is totally absurd. Just then his girlfriend walked up puffing on a smoke and obviously heavily inebriated. She looked like a cross between a heavy metal Elvis and a slightly overweight street-tough version of Elvira and certainly seemed like she would take a dare. I told him he was a lucky man.

What else could I say? In those situations you have to pick your words carefully or else you'll end up getting the crap kicked out of you. How would that look? Me getting the crap kicked out of me by some scrawny dudes girlfriend?

The Melvins are a very talented 29 year rock band who have reinvented themselves with each album offering. They have influenced and worked with a lot of today's popular metal bands. The Melvins perform music that is true to themselves with highly creative song structures, balls to the wall rocking riffs and weird ass lyrics and song titles. They are in the midst of playing 51 states in 51 days in their late 40's with no complaints and no superstar treatment.

You should take the time to check them out. They have about 30+ albums to choose from.

a comment from one of tour diary readers:



Anonymous4 days ago


I usually refrain from posting comments; but, i could not in this particular case. Simply because your band blows, and you never received any of the notoriety Green Day has, and you have not because, again, your band blows, as do your musical abilities, in no way gives you the right to condemn Billie Joe. When you do, you come across as bitter, and in my opinion, quite jealous. Commenting on their band name is also ridiculous as you named your band after a horrible male name. Oh, that was clever. I wonder how you would have acted if you were in his shoes. But then again, since your band blows, i suppose we will never know.

Green Day's Billie Joe Freaks Out Blasts Justin Bieber And Smashes Guitar (iHeartRadio Festival) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99PwfIzMzr0#ws)
What I find particularly funny about that video is how the bass player joins BJ in smashing his instrument for no apparent reason (misplaced sense of obligation, perhaps?) while the drummer just gets up and leaves.

a comment from one of tour diary readers:



Anonymous4 days ago


I usually refrain from posting comments; but, i could not in this particular case. Simply because your band blows, and you never received any of the notoriety Green Day has, and you have not because, again, your band blows, as do your musical abilities, in no way gives you the right to condemn Billie Joe. When you do, you come across as bitter, and in my opinion, quite jealous. Commenting on their band name is also ridiculous as you named your band after a horrible male name. Oh, that was clever. I wonder how you would have acted if you were in his shoes. But then again, since your band blows, i suppose we will never know. Stick to writing blogs for your three fans, and stop trash talking Green Day as well as Billie Joe

You got me to actually check that one out. Of the entries i've read (mostly the first 6 or so) i think i've enjoyed hearing from Trevor more than Buzz or Dale. I guess Dunn is more of an enigma to me in some way so his are more revealing.

All three dudes are terribly good writers. Entertaining, thoughtful, and extremely funny.

Walsby made a bummer of a post last night on his facebook. I guess they got two flat tires - George Thorogood was behind this, for sure. I imagine he ordered a box of super giant nails and a sling shot from the ACME Corporation and shot it in their direction.

Good news is, the band is back on the road, and seem to have made it safely to the next destination. Three more gigs! USA! USA! USA!!! Melvins making it into The Book of Genesis is near. Melvins making it into the Book of World Records is nearer.

This is unbelievably exciting  :D

Looking at this picture.  It makes me think of years from now - especially in a few recent interviews where Buzz has said he doesn't care what happens to all the music when he's dead - it makes me think of one of his mumus hanging in the Smithsonian with a pair of sneakers just below it.  In a just world, that's exactly where they would be.  But alas . . . who knows . . .

Based on my own "research" (aka googling) it does appear that George probably finished his tour.  I wouldn't be surprised if Buzz really did hear that it was cancelled.  Can we really trust radio DJ's though?  I remember hearing Faith No More's Epic on the radio around 2001 and the DJ insisted that Mike Patton was in jail for pissing on an audience in Europe.  This was the infamous Tomahawk dildo incident.

It seems like The Melvins barely care about the record anyway and just wanted to do something over the top.  Still, it's pretty funny they've been playing "Bad to the Bone" on the PA once their set is over.   :lol:

The quotes from Buzz in that article make the whole tour and any silly controversy all worth it.  Oh, and the shows were fun too !!  Can't you just hear Buzz's laugh after each one of these . . .

"I can only hope that some day I will be playing Bo Diddley covers at county fairs!"

"Who knew they would get so ma ma ma ma ma mad," he wrote. "I suppose they could be right and if they are then we really are sorry. We're sorry we said you didn't do it if you really did."

How can they top it? "Death," Osborne quips. "We're going to kill ourselves. Actually, what we want to do next year is 52 shows, one show per week for the whole year. It will be the longest, slowest tour of the U.S."

We've never had our songs in beer commercials or sold shit loads of records the way they have. Considering how well they seem to have done, it seems like a weird thing to get all hacked off about but hell why not, I guess. Who knew they would get so ma ma ma ma ma mad. I suppose they could be right and if they are then we really are sorry. We're sorry we said you didn't do it if you really did.

How many times do the Melvins need to say they're sorry? There's two times in the above Tour Diary entry.

wtf ?  Say they're sorry ?!?!?  Does anybody other than George Thorogood care ???

At this point, I don't think the Melvins even care beyond their personal feelings of accomplishment.  I wouldn't be surprised if they don't submit whatever paperwork allegedly needs to be submitted to the Guinness people - or if they really didn't have any intention to in the first place.

As far as I could tell it wasn't even Thorogood himself, who actually wished them the best of luck, but rather his tour manager.

A suggestion unrelated to George Thorogood: Any chance of uploading the tour diary onto themelvins.net archives for posterity? It's only a matter of time before it disappears from Spin's website.

Ah cool. I think one of the reasons i gave up reading them was because the Spin site seemed to screw up my computer. Also i could never be bothered to read bits here and there. With it all together i might just read the lot front to back. So to speak.

No problem. But I really haven't done anything. Turns out I'm really great at copying and pasting though  :)

Ah cool. I think one of the reasons i gave up reading them was because the Spin site seemed to screw up my computer.

I agree. I'd like to see a hard-copy of this, and wouldn't really be surprised if they released one. I think it's a good idea!

I''m not sure if Brian will be able to put it on the wiki page, but we can surely ask. I don't think the diary on SPIN will disappear anytime soon but I thought it would be nice to look at it as a whole so I've been saving text and photos as they've been going up. I could just as easily put them up in a thread here on the BBS if you guys want. I'll be working in front of my computer all day (sigh) and sadly, have the time to do it. It would be nice if we could disable comments for a minute and just have the diary perserved in one solid place. Other than the last few, I have it all saved in one spot so it wouldn't be a big deal at all. More than half the work is already done! Thoughts?

^Thanks for the work on this.. I was thinking something similar. That the diaries should be preserved somehow

OK, I have the complete diary stored and saved on my computer. The photos have been organized and dated accordingly too.
Slow day at work.

Anyway, let me get an Ok and we can get it up in full here on the bbs. I guess my only concern is there might be some kind of copyright infringement. Melvins own the photos, so I think it would be fine to do. What do you guys think?

Yeahhhh, let's just leave it be for now because it's an exclusive to SPIN. I really don't think posting the text on the message board would be a biggie (SPIN and most of SPINs readers do not hang out here, I'm sure of it) but I'm going to wait for it to cool down anyway. Besides...work day is over and I want nothing more than to shut this computer down for the evening. Anyway, fear not! In case of emergency, my external hard-drive is keeping it warm.

PS : The text I have is exclusive to nice guys only ;)

I'm reading this again for the 4-5th time now and about to send the PDF to a mate who was a big Amrep fan back in the day but isn't very familiar with the Melvins. It's such a great read.

Thanks once again to the late Conda for compiling this.

I'd never heard of that. Seems strange to do this with all 3 shows so far apart. You could do it in the Mediterranean region with far less effort.

"On 23 October 1995, the band entered the Guinness Book of World Records by performing three concerts on three continents in one day (Tangiers, Morocco; London, England; and Vancouver, Canada).[49]"
