Title: Pinkus Abortion Technician
Post by: ))))(((( on February 12, 2018, 10:30:29 AM
New album!!


(https://consequenceofsound.files.wordpress.com/2018/02/melvins-pinkus-abortion-technician.jpg?quality=80&w=806)


1. Stop Moving To Florida      
2. Embrace The Rub      
3. Don't Forget To Breathe      
4. Flamboyant Duck      
5. Break Bread      
6. I Want To Hold Your Hand      
7. Prenup Butter      
8. Graveyard


“We’ve never had two bass players. We’ve had two drummers and two guitar players so it makes total sense to now have two bass players. We’ll be taking this two-prong bass attack on the road as well which should prove to be interesting. Pinkus Abortion Technician is a radically great record and was a stone groove to record. We drank a lot of coffee and enjoyed each other’s company. I like Steven and Jeff a great deal. I admire their bass playing and singing and both of them can grill a mean steak.” - Buzz

I imagine that Graveyard might stretch out a bit similar to that live version they did with feedback or odd sounds at the end. Which is something Melvins have done on a great many of their albums lately - end on weird noises etc. I would suspect The Beatles cover is still pretty short.

Last year in an interview Dale said this album wasn't planned. He said Jeff came down to LA and they recorded the record. In light of that i wonder how well thought out or "written" the songs are. Especially the originals from Buzz. Knowing that these cover songs were live staples for a while does make it seem a little like they threw this one together a bit. That Buzz had a few songs written and they simply just decided to record the covers they had been playing to fill out an LP. Im sure it's not quite like that of course but it does make you wonder how vital the impetus to create this album was for the band.
Title: Re: Pinkus Abortion Technician

^^^ And from what I've heard in recent interviews, they are really excited to be playing with both Steve and Jeff. Makes sense, they always seemed to have a ton of fun playing with them.

I'm keeping my mouth shut, and letting it all play out.  I'm biased, and like it.  Like I said, some will like it, and as Taylor Swift said, the haters are going to hate, that I have no doubt.  Besides the two bass attack, this album as a couple other first in Melvin's history.

Short time to write and record a record is a good thing.  The original Hold It In tracks were written over a short time, then once Paul got involved and brought a few more tracks, it snow balled into a bigger release.  It was originally only going to be a 4 song EP, and look what we got.

It was a little long for me. The quality dipped a bit here and there i thought with the odd song. Being that it was a longer Melvins record, i wish that album had a few of the lesser tracks lobbed off to create a tighter set of songs. And when i say "lesser" tracks i mean the Paul Leary ones!


It was originally only going to be a 4 song EP, and look what we got.
Yes i remember that rumour being mentioned on here. The Pinkus EP i recall it being named.

The writeup at Metal Injection was pretty funny.

Quote
Melvins released a double album called A Walk With Love And Death on July 7, 2017, and then embarked on a 61-date tour that stretched from July to October. Clearly the band took about 30 minutes off between getting home and working on a new record, because there's a new Melvins record coming on April 20.

Quote
I can hear some of you from miles away right now too, and here's what you're saying – "what about Basses Loaded? That had SIX bassists! THIS IS BULLSHIT!" Well, yeah, but that had six bassists all performing on separate songs, whereas Pinkus Abortion Technician has two bassists performing simultaneously on each track. So suck it, hypothetical person.

Shows what they know, both were written more or less at the same time, one just had to wait it's turn at Ipecac.

Didn't they have a record recently with three basses at the same time?  Wasn't that record several years old?  So why step down to two now, shouldn't they be building?...THIS IS BULLSHIT!!

I think it depends what we mean when we say "thrown together". I didn't mean they just come up with this record on the fly in 10 minutes. Obviously the material will be considered and executed to their intentions. However i doubt it was deliberated upon or worked over for too long either. Now, of course a band don't need to meditate upon their new album nor does it need to be a rigorously tough process to record a record. But i think we all know what i meant.

I find myself intrigued by the 'Stop Moving To Florida' track. I wonder whether it is simply one cover song followed by the next like they performed it live, or an amalgamation of the two that may switch back and forth somehow.

Im as impatient as the next guy when it comes to things like this, but in a way i don't want to hear a song prior. That ruined A Walk With... a little for me since we got to hear Christ Hammer so long before the release. Same applies to Basses Loaded and the EP's. When you finally get the record it loses some of that coherence or flow if you are too familiar with a song. Ideally i like to hear the whole thing front to back in one go. But at the same time i'll gladly take a stream of a song too!

Yes. I was surprised that it's Steve who takes the prominent role with the vocals on the 'Stop' part of the track. I liked Pinkus' tones on the live tour versions they did so i expected it would be him instead. Personally i consider Jeff to have a better voice than Steve, still it sounded great. I think this one really benefited from them playing it live and knowing the song so well. I could leave out the 'Moving To Florida' part of the song. I never liked that one. Buzz sounds retarded. Oddly in a way this whole track reminds me of 'The Water Glass' - a rocking first part followed by an ill judged, emphasis upon spoken words second section.

I'm guessing you don't rate Piss Pisstopherson as a song title then? ;) Putting the low brow humor aside I think it's probably got more to do with having so many songs that they probably can't be fucked thinking up decent names for them, I even get that feeling a bit from their album titles.

Buzz: "What should we call album number 25?"
Dale: "Yeah eh um how bout Polka Dot Sledgehammer?"
Buzz: "Done. But I'm choosing the name of the next one in six months time"
Dale: "Whatever"

In saying that The Asshole Bastard is an awesome name for a song title. My mother's boyfriend is an old school Italian fella who gets worked up pretty easily and when he starts ranting about politicians or public servants he always refers to them as asshole bastards. They're not just assholes and they're not just bastards they're asshole bastards. I'm sure I remember Buzz in the 51 shows in 51 days tour diaries calling the government officials who came up with some train line in LA to the airport as asshole bastards too.

Yes. Like 'Hold It In', they said that came from a joke the band had. Like you note, they don't seem to take it too seriously, which is the extreme opposite of how i would be about it. 'Everybody Loves Sausages' in particular is one i absolutely detest!!

Agreed! That's the odd thing with Melvins, some of their song/album titles are terrible while others are awesome. The Asshole Bastard is indeed an example of a great one. I like 'Pinkus Abortion Technician' as a title too.

Stop Moving To Florida is cool, but when they were doing Moving To Florida live Buzz did it with more gusto.
The delivery is not quite up to how he was doing it on that tour. On the best shows, anyway.
I think the high-pass filter on his vocals was a mistake as it killed some of that as well.

I still like the sound of these two a lot though.
The two basses sound great, the mix sounds different and good, there's even a few piano notes thrown in.
Looking forward to this.

I'm not sure if trying to capture Gibby verbatim was the right thing to do.   better to "Buzz" it a little.

Free suggestion: the Melvins need to release a buzz rant album, similar to the venom recording. "I'm not your fucking parents! Smoke pot! Stay off the stage!"

It's a good thing they're covering that Beatles song because those guys were the "worst musicians ever"
Just imagine what Quincy Jones would say about Melvins!!


If Quincy produced Bootlicker it would have been sexier than a Marvin Gay record AND it would've sold more too.


.......just sayin.

Or like that Beach Boys album that's a bunch of banter and joke-covers meant to emulate bullshitting in their living room
