Title: The Melvins in 2019...
Post by: johnnyg on November 05, 2018, 10:30:41 PM
So, as we know, the Melvins usually use the winter months for recording. Does anyone have any inside info on what's in the works? Does the Sabbath single forecast the 'History of Rock' album they were talking about?

Also, as a fan, what would you like to hear from them in 2019?

I'll start- I LOVE 'basses' and really liked 'pat', but I'd like to see the Buzz, Dale, Jeff, Steve lineup do something far out in the vein of 'pigs of the roman empire' or 'honkey'. I certainly wouldn't say no to new jelvins, either. Basically, I would be down for anything unexpected.

I know we are back to the UK at some point. I’m not sure when that will be exactly yet, but its definitely one of the things we will be doing. We’ve got more massive tours and some recording. More of the same, a lot more of just what we do.

Seeing melvins recently, I couldn't help think the current line-up would be perfect to play a Colossus of Destiny live show. Add Jon Spencer with 'wire' and leaping around the audience screaming, "THE FUCKING BLUUUUUES IS THE SHIT!" etc. and I could see that biting. I'd even come to Michigan for that.

I dig Jon Spencer and I think he is underrated. I'd set my expectations for a Melvins/JS release at, like, an upgraded Haze/Melvins collab level.

Also the new album from Spencer really crushes. The sound of it, the band, and Jon as good as ever.

Post by: Dumpster D on November 18, 2018, 07:43:47 PM
I'm sorry but my senses do not lie for I am the Great Carnac!

Jon Spencer-Melvins collab, It's probably already in the can coming down the pipes all in good time.  :-$

And, AND I'll bet it's gonna rock your socks off....Infact that is why I'm betting it's a top secret project for the time being.

I'll bet it's going to match "Hold it in" in terms of "WOW" factor.

SO glad to hear the News about Hepa-titus Melvins show, that's very good to hear. this pleases me.


Even a Melvins Hepa-Titus split would be something too....OOooo Nooo!!! INDEEEEEEED!!!!

THIS SONG IS CALLED..........THE CHANTING.....OF THE PRIESTS!!!!!!   :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Furthermore, I'd really love a little Modular Synth collaborative, whether it's a live improv one-off kind of affair, it would be asking a lot but that's why it could be a throwaway and be Justified as such...I really enjoy Throbbing gristle during the Christmas holiday season to Augment all the horrid Christmas music being forcefully pumped into your buttery ear holes.

Where has Sir David Scott Stone been hiding?

I've got to say he is sorely missed (no pun intended) ...He's the Reason my Ears are still ringing since June 16th of the year 2000. People were not very happy with his performance. I found it more than satisfying to my aural senses despite having severe hearing loss in my left ear in the high end spectrum...so severe I can't hear hi-hat tracks or ride cymbals on my left side.  =D>

True. Anything that brings Kevin closer to the band is good news.

Indeed.

Jesus... for real? To this day? :shock: I've been to very loud shows (Jucifer and Swans are top 2) but that's legit scary.
The club should pay damages for allowing the volume to be this high...

Furthermore, I'd really love a little Modular Synth collaborative, whether it's a live improv one-off kind of affair, it would be asking a lot but that's why it could be a throwaway and be Justified as such...
They should do another Colossus Of Destiny live (with no announcement that it'll be a special show, like the first time).

Was talking about this with someone the other day, since David Scott Stone was also in Big Business; didn't he have some kind of falling-out with Buzz over money or something? That's what I read somewhere on here years ago.

I hope they put out a new album in 2019. Then we'll have ten studio albums in one decade (I'm counting AWWL&D as a singular piece and not two separate albums).

Also hoping for a Crover/Redd Kross east coast/midwest tour.

Lastly, with OFF! playing Muddy Roots I wonder if it'll be Rubacalba or Crover on that lineup...

Time will tell I suppose.

There's not much news about it. Pinkus just remarked in an interview earlier this year about how Melvins have a Rolling Stones cover album recorded called Sticky Feet. That was all that was mentioned. For all we know it might not even appear next year. I mean, the Void Manes one has been in the can since something like 2011!!

saw them 2 nights ago in a much smaller club than last summer and I thought they were much tighter as a 4 man band with 2 basses and had worked out a lot of the kinks. both Pinkus and Steven were playing fills and especially Steven on harmony parts that were mind blowing and smoother in their delivery since last time. I won't mind if and when they go back to one bass, but i'm glad I got to see this line up twice now. same as how the two drummer lineup got better as they toured more together. that's why I prefer Nude With Boots or (A)SA. they were playing off each other and anticipating where to deviate from playing everything the same at the same time.
