Title: Flipper + Melvins split
Post by: bUTTHOLEmAN on April 02, 2019, 06:35:51 PM
Coming in a few months. Possible Melvins/Flipper tour in the Fall?
Title: Re: Flipper + Melvins split
Post by: ))))(((( on April 03, 2019, 05:42:53 AM
Any idea what is on this release at all? New material i hope!! Whenever i see Haze is working on some new prints, it always gets me wondering what Melvins could currently be brewing up.

nice!

i hope too for new stuff, or even a collab, ideally on a 7". though 10" are also always nice.
but for the melvins side it could also be a reissue of the flipper covers... at least way of the world from the 12 x 7" series on amrep.

Flipper just recruited David Yow for a west coast mini-tour so I could definitely see this happening. Was bummed because a cross-country trip for a show is out-of-the-question so I'm especially hoping for a Melvins/Flipper tour if it brings them closer to my neck of the woods.

In any case I hope the split has new material. Or if it's reissued old stuff, at least make it something cool and lesser-known like the "Someday" or "Love Canal" covers instead of "Way of the World" (which I've never liked the Melvins version of at all)

Buzz talks about Generic Flipper as one of his favorite grunge albums and said this:
Quote
We just got done recording with Steve [DePace] and Ted [Falconi]; we wrote a new Flipper song with them, and it was an honor to play with those guys.

Flipper was on the uk tour in 2010, Krist Novoselic was playing for them and was really bad. They did a we are the world version of Sacrifice which was really good.

They've had 10 years basically since then, I'm sure they got their shit together by now.

This will probably be...no....GOING to be....Worth the wait.

They were great the next tour with Rachel Thoele on bass, it was Krist that was really bad. At one point they took the bass off him to teach him the riff.

..It's a total last minute thing, Guys happen to have busy schedules...I'm going to defend Krist, probly wasn't his fault man, circumstantial happenings, I wasn't there but I know how it goes trying to get people together for a gig.

This is really good news, hopefully it's something totally new but Melvins playing older Flipper songs would be a treat as well. It will be a 10 inch btw, not sure if that has been mentioned here before, don't think so.

I've seen Flipper with Bruce and Rachel in 2012, and that was great. Apparently Flipper with Yow will be coming over to Europe this summer, Flipper confirmed this on Facebook.. I've heard that Mike Watt will be joining them on bass. Really excited to see them with this lineup.

I'm finding it hard to believe anyone couldn't play a flipper song.  :lol:

It's a shame what happened to Bruce. You can tell by his posts that he's still not happy with yow joining.
Title: Re: Flipper + Melvins split
Post by: amazonAMAZON on April 06, 2019, 10:52:24 AM
Watt is so overqualified for this gig, but hey I'd love to see that.

How many Flipper covers have the melvins released at this point? Five maybe? I'd be happy if they revisit Love Canal but I don't need new versions of Sacrifice or Way of the World. I'm suspicious of Buzz writing new Flipper songs, but only suspicious in that they'd come out as Melvins songs which pleases me.

Check out his Facebook page. From what I've seen, he's had problems with his back, and possibly pain medicine. I think it probably contributed to him getting kicked out. He's still bitter about everything.

Edit. Ah i found this bit of info.
Quote
Melvins and Flipper will be releasing an EP called Hot Fish. They recently revealed that the EP will be a collaborative release (as opposed to a split EP) and will be out via Amphetamine Reptile. It appears the release will have four tracks. Two of the confirmed tracks are "Hot Fish" and what is most likely a re-cut of the Flipper classic "Sacrifice," which the Melvins previously covered on the Lysol album.

Semi-related question... Were Flipper doing "Someday" live in the years prior to their American Grafishy album or something? Since that album with the song on it came out in 1993, but all the dates I can find for the Melvins' Love Canal/Someday EP are like, 1990-1991 era. It's not significant or anything but that always made me wonder what kind of inside knowledge Buzz had, or if he simply listened to live bootlegs or something.

Tried again for 1 blood and 1 splatter, and the same thing happened in the middle of checkout -  the blood version was sold out. So, I at least scored a splatter version. Now I need more coffee!

Cheapy CD for the win. I don't want to sound rude or anything like that, but AmRep vinyls are too expensive considering the quality of their pressings... and yet, they sold out within minutes, go figure.

I just kinda wish that the AmRep web person would step up some of their site issues; this isn't the first time I've tried to buy a limited pressing and lost it while in the middle of checkout, and it was in the cart. I think I've heard that from a few others on this board as well. That's not the way those cart features are designed to work (or *not* work, in this case...) Oh well, I guess I should be glad I scored anything at all; besides, it's not like I was trying to save babies or somethin'...

Could be that's the they want it set up, but think about venue sites where you're browsing tickets, and you have a window where the item in your cart is yours until the timer runs out. That's a little more cool than making folks trip over themselves trying to type fast and whatnot, and seeing things disappear anyway. Just sayin'...

The cart is working as expected- 'in the cart' doesn't mean anything until checkout and you get the 'order confirmed' message.

Sure, why not? If I see you in a store with something in your cart, and you haven't made it to the checkout counter yet, that means I can grab it from your cart and run for the register, right? Heck, I'm gonna remember that one for Record Store Day from now on!

so 'in the cart' means it's really in the middle of the sales floor for anyone to grab and rundoft with? go it! ;)

Let's assume amrep changed the checkout procedure to 'in the cart means you've got it'- nothing would change, because everyone would still be on a level playing field. Assuming all things the same (your checkout speed, your internet connection, etc) you would still be in the same position, ie the faster  people would still be first.

I know! I was *so* hoping that Flipper might have had some vinyl with 'em when they were just in Portland this past Thursday, but suprisingly, they had zero vinyl of any sort. They did have a bunch of t-shirts which are on their web store, and a couple of pins which were kinda cool. I'm almost a wee bit bit jealous of any of you kids who might be able to snag some of those Hot Fish slabs from an upcoming show, but I guess that's what I get for living on the West Coast these days...   :cry:

The yellow shirt modeled after the Cobain drawing, or the Walsby tour shirt?
I had to get the Walsby shirt, just cuz the band drawing was pretty cool.
I didn't grab a poster, since I was taking pictures from the pit, and figured it would get destoyed.

Vocals are double tracked on Flipper Blues.not sure if they are both Buzz there are parts where it sounds like two different peoole. But I've only given it one proper listen.
 28mins long total a little longer than I expedted. Love hearing Trevor on more Melvins music.

Heh... it looks like my vinyl showed up at the PO Box in tow around 10 am yesterday... less than an hour *after* we had picked up pur mail (the mail delivery around here is pretty lousy, but at least it's relatively safe by using a PO Box). Can't wait to go back today to pick it up and give it a spin!

On a side note, I'm glad I was able to record about an hour of the Flipper set in Portland.... there doesn't seem to be any evidence that anyone else has recorded any of the subsequent shows - only the video clips from Al's, on youtube. I wish I had more memory in my phone, because the Portland show demonstrated that they were even more on top of their game since the first couple of shows on the tour. I can only imagine how good they could be sounding as the tour commences...

Listened to it a couple of times, pretty cool! Sounds like Trevor on upright on the first two tracks and someone on electric bass on the last two (Steven?). Hard to tell who is playing what on guitar and drums but I'm guessing they're doubled up on everything. All the vocals sound like Buzz. Anyone know what they're saying at the beginning of Flipper Blues?

"Alright, I'd like to introduce the band; this is four guys with their hands up their assholes and their zippers down...."

After that, it becomes even less intelligible....   8)

Maybe something about seeing something at a festival... or maybe seeing someone's testicle... ?
I dunno, it's all about the same to me....  :-k

Holy cats, you're right; how did I not pick up on that?  :facepalm:
I really haven't given that album enough spins since the day I bought it, I guess.
The first couple LPs are the ones I've really played to death over the years.
Leave it to The Melvins to recreate the whole vibe of the original, though!

At any of the other shows has Yow invited the audience up on stage during 'Sex Bomb'? Or was it just Seattle?
Title: Re: Flipper + Melvins split
Post by: 01001010 on June 14, 2019, 03:06:13 PM
That happened the previous night in Portland as well.

I was video-recording on my iPhone from the edge of the pit, pressed up against the stage in front of Rachel, but I ran out of space on my phone after about an hour, so I didn't catch that - missed a few songs, in fact. I was able to get a few photos, though, including some of the crowd swarming the stage during Sex Bomb.

Unfortunately, I'm apparently not bright enough to know how to edit iPhone video footage into separate songs / clips, or I'd probably be able to share them with other folks, even the band members.

Also, for the life of me, I have not been able to post any photos on this here message board, except for the one of those Flipper pins, for some reason. The error messages I get basically tell me nothing at all, like they're just guessing. I've squashed a few pics down way below the size requirements, but with the exception of the one snap of those pins, nothing.

Anyone who thinks they can help me out with those little problems, feel free to let me know. I'm pretty good at recording and mixing in a small studio or a club, but when it comes to these little gadgets like "smart" phones, my brains go right down the toilet. Maybe if I had been born a millennial instead during the 50s baby boom.....

when that happened at El Corazon he came out on the half-empty floor, came right up to me and put his arm around me and looked back up at the crowd with a big smile on his face. I put my arm around him in kind and said "Yeah man, look at this magic you've created!" and he looked back at me and yelled "I just wish they all had kazoos!" and then made his way back up on stage.

that guy. the best.

I got up on stage. I was right behind Ted. didn't Yow do some crazy shit at this show? i saw him rubbing some bald guys head for like a solid minute. I wanna say he made out with someone and pulled his dick out? my view was obstructed but that's what it seemed was going on.

that would've been kool if they handed out kazoos

Funny thing is, before the Portland show I saw one of the clips on youtube from the last run of shows with Bruce, where they gave some guy a kazoo and invited him on stage. I don't think he ever did play the thing, but it reminded me that I have one or two kazoos around my house, and I tried to find it before the show, to no avail. Probably just as well.

In those Seattle clips, there's one where right after Shed No Tears, the trouser minnow makes a cameo appearance, per request from the audience.  :oops:
