Title: The Melvins in 2020...
Post by: johnnyg on December 31, 2019, 09:32:43 AM
Ok! 2019 was a relatively slow year for the Melvins (but for most other bands, it would be considered "highly productive.") What will they release in 2020?! Will we get the rumored 'history of rock' album? More collabs? An interesting tour, perhaps? Who has the inside info? What do you hope they'll release?

Also, Winter is when they usually record. Does anyone know what they're up to?

Dale mentioned in some recent interview that he was recording lots over this Winter. Whether that is Melvins material or something else (solo, Redd Kross, Off! etc) is anyone's guess though. All we know is that Buzz has another solo record planned. However im hopeful of something more substantial (outside of AmRep EP's) from Melvins in 2020.

oh yeah, Void Manes collab  and  Buzzo (solo) w/ Dunn ... that's what I'm hoping for.

The only thing that has been mentioned for this year is the Buzz 'solo' album with Dunn and tour together.

I think I read someone else say at the start of their last tour they spoke to Buzz and he said Crover has a degenerative back condition now and can't tour/do Melvins as much in future which is probably the reason for the Buzz & Dunn album/tour without Crover.

I know it sucks but it happens. Older heavier bands often go and get young drummers because it's the hardest most physical instrument to play especially when you're pounding the skins.

that sounds totally new to me, I mean about Dale's condition. that massive tour they did after he had the back injury went really well, he had no particular problem playing two sets each night for two months straight. also a Redd Kross European tour is already planned. as for Buzz touring without Crover, he already did it in the past..when his solo record came out

check this interview, he talks about his back problems saying he's doing well

I posted late and should've gone and re-read the post in question before I posted but I perhaps erroneously assumed that he can't tour/do Melvins as much anymore although the Buzz/Dunn tour seems very coincidental. I think Crover might be publicly playing down the extent of his back problems understandably.

This was according to Buzz at the beginning of the tour in September:

Quote
Talked to Buzz and the Trevor Dunn collaboration is half finished. Based on our conversation he'll be touring with Trevor and Redd Kross is going to Europe. Dale's back is very debilitating. That's it.

Well, i've always thought that the 3 tracks on Everybody Loves Sausages and 'Planet Destructo' on Basses Loaded were at least four of those 50. I'd be surprised if they weren't.

Im sitting here listening to 'A Walk With...' and wishing to have some exciting Melvins news arrive down the pipeline. Come on Melvins!!! I need new album updates here! I want some album announcement to get eager to hear all about 'Pinkus Abortion Technician' was almost 2 years ago now! In my dreams, 2020 would be like 2013 or 2016 all over again. Two new albums in the same year!!

Black Heath still rules. Might be the most outstanding Buzz penned song release of the last three years. I really want more studio songs from the trio.

Also what happened to the Sylvia Massey session?

And of course any new Buzz solo material or Dunn collab.

Mr Bungle was awesome tonight. Full on thrash plus two palette cleansing covers.

I agree. It's definitely up there.


Also what happened to the Sylvia Massey session?
I think Buzz said in an interview that the session was just for the TV show. So i guess there won't be anything released "from" that. Which is a bit odd.


And of course any new Buzz solo material or Dunn collab.
Yes!!!! I can't wait. It's rare i say this regarding most Melvins related things, but i absolutely loved This Machine Kills Artists. Looking forward to hearing this Buzz & Trevor (Melvins Extra Lite???) record.

Woah!!!!!! Are we sure that's Melvins related though!! I suppose we'll find out next week! It's definitely Mackie art so either Melvins or the Buzzo solo album. Damn, now im going to be checking the Ipecac pages like crazy from Monday onwards!!

I must say - this point is always the most exciting to me! I want to know number of tracks! Song names! Album length! Line-up! What it sounds like! Inspirations etc etc etc! These types of things are always when im at my most super-fan-ish!!

Every new year that comes round i think to myself "perhaps this will be the year where Melvins go crazy with releases!" you know 4 albums in 12 months or something like that! Remember a few years ago when Ipecac released 13 Omar Rodriguez-Lopez albums in one year!!! Wish they would do that for Melvins. It would be really fun to witness.

As I understand it Omar is quite a bit more prolific than the Melvins are I think he's released over a hundred albums and weren't all of those ones on Ipecac just digital releases? Anyway that's all over now after the Crystal Fairy shamozzle.

Genuine question - Melvins are one of the most prolific rock bands and at least to me, all their material ranges from very good to excellent. The last ten years have been a boon in my opinion. I feel like every Melvins album is made with a specific purpose or agenda.

 But, could even Melvins put out 13 good albums in a year? I'm not a Mars Volta fan at all- is that OR-L stuff good at all... or is it just quantiity?

I think I'd rather have 1 excellent album, or even 1 album made with a purpose, than 13 okay ones made just to be made.

Agreed! That definitely does seem to be the case more so lately. Buzz has an idea and then they run with it. Initially i wasn't too sure about all that, but now im okay with this process. It makes for some interesting changes/dynamics. Fun too!

I haven't listened to those Omar albums so i don't know. I know he tends to record all the time and then just puts the recordings on the shelf to be released at some point. So i suppose it's not quite true that they are rushed or recorded back to back or brand new.

As far as Melvins i think they are somewhat the same. It does seem that they record quite a bit of stuff and then that just sits around waiting for Ipecac to decide when it's best to release it. So i presume the band do have some material in the vaults ready to go. The Void Manes collab, the 50 Melvins Lite unreleased songs and (unless it was a joke from Pinkus) we know there's that Rolling Stones covers album 'Sticky Feet' too. So that's potentially 3 there! However no i don't think Melvins could release 13 records in a year, but i was just using that as an example. I could imagine them putting out 4 or 5 though if they have that backlog of material. Whether it would be good or not, well who knows. Like Buzz said he could put out a record once every 2 or 3 years but he would have still recorded it quickly and exactly the same. Bands back in the day used to put out 2 records a year sometimes so why not now!

All good points- I sort of forgot that it appears they basically have 4 or 5 albums recorded already, as you point out.

Also, I back the 2 albums a year standard, as you say. Bowie, Judas Priest, Queen and others put out their best material in that time frame.
