Title: My first Melvins show was finally put online
Post by: blacksanta on November 22, 2018, 03:16:11 AM
Sitting here with my jaw dropped to the floor, and in disbelief that my 15 year old self was in the room. Dale is on fire the whole night. Best Night Goat ever. And Specimen is so heavy it made me nauseous.
What amazes me the most is seeing the actual full 2 hour, 3 set evening and how different the vibe is compared to now. Present Melvins is a tight machine. This was a looser band. And those first two sets are really unique in Melvins history. Since these shows they have continued taking big risks, but I don't think they have ever been more bravely vulnerable than they were here.

I'm curious what others think.

Good time to see them.  That's one amazing set list.

Get the comments about them being looser back then. Also think at that time they were far more drum centric of a band than they are now.

Interesting that were playing Fleetwood Mac a couple years before the trilogy as well.

that must have been mind blowing to see. something from gpt or ozma era in the 'heavy' set would have made the ultimate setlist.
Wish I could find my first Melvins show, 20 Oct 2006 in Baltimore.

I remember when Basses Loaded came out, Buzz saying that it used to be played or improvised during soundchecks around that time but i too was surprised to see they actually performed it in a gig setting.
