They may be still doing artwork, but according to Butthole's post in another thread, it was recorded in January and advance copies are going out very soon.

Really hope someone gets one and can ease the pain of waiting til July!

I might be the only one here.. but come on, isn't it a bit early? Of course I want to hear it really bad, like everyone else and July is far far away.. but we've only known the name of the album for two days now...

Yeah, I know. How can someone not want to hear an album 4 months before its actual release? Stupid person. :|

listening to this album early is not going to stop me from buying this album as soon as it comes out. I think it's fair to say that everyone(or atleast most of us) here will get their own copy of the album.

As far as patience and virtue go I really don't care for Aristotle's ethics. Fuck moderation!

Yeah, of course the majority of us will buy that album, that's beyond question. All I was trying to say is that it seemed a little rushed after two days, they might even still do the artworks and whatnot, what Fart Lips said. But damn, what can I do? Call me stupid but I do have a bad conscience. I'm actually pretty sure I will give in eventually. It's a damn long time.

By the way, I can't wait to hear the studio versions of Billy Fish and SIP. With some extra stuff hopefully. Nine completely new tunes? Damn that's exciting, especially because of the new Dale interview. He said something along the lines of "more mysterious album" right? Nice.

Aw, that's a little disappointing I was looking forward to hearing songs with the names of those other tracklist names like that one called The Sea Bass and then that final track sounded so fucking cool "Being Drowsy, The Eye May Collapse." Well I'll be the first to call DIBS!! I'm gonna write a song and name it that now.

I would like to buy the album when it comes out but i still want to have a little taste of it before the actual release date becuase July is so far away i dont think i can wait....I think they put Suicide in Progress on it though.

I turn 21 in July and waitng for a new Melvins album and dvd doesn't help things.  Of course I'm going to download it!  But I'll also buy it the day it comes out assuming I can find it.
Title: Re: Nude With Boots
Post by: GrimReaper on March 30, 2008, 04:53:55 AM
Most of us will buy Nude With Boots, any special Nude With Boots vinyl, and the tour re-packageing, and then the re-issue with added tracks.

How's that for thinking ahead?

Post by: Uncle Fester on March 30, 2008, 12:54:32 PM
I TRULY dolove The Melvins and alot of the stuff they put out. I can say I am a really big fan.
but since A Senile Animalcame out i have just been hoping that there isnt going to be a steady downhill slope for The Melvins. I still do have hope that they will make something fresh original and just generally fucking awesome. After hearing those two live tracks  And reading that bit of information about Jared and Coady still being in the lineup, I still worry.
This is just my opinion... im not stating any facts... please dont grill me for this, I am merely speaking out.

Steady downhill slope? Did you not see them live lately???

as a matter of fact, I have seen them live. I went all the way to portland from vancouver to see them in late 2007. the show was really amazing except for the fact that almost more than half of the set was a senile animal.They even played a couple improvised jams. It is a good album, however the jared and coady influence on the band just isnt my thing.

good ol' melvins. now, i cant say that i agree with you, cause i sure dont. im not much of a big business fan, but this melvins line-up is the coolest thing since jesus. less drone, more.... everything. ive never heard anything like it.

as most if not all of you know, MELVINS is a biological beast undergoing constant non-biological mutation. a new addition or subtraction, such as the kevin rutmanis leg, and the lorax index finger, will lead to the big business machine gun.

long story short, there is no downhill. only constant stimulation of the space time continuum. in other words, give it a few years. theyll change into something different. possibly more exciting, and far from down that hill.

alright? ALRIGGGHHTTT

Title: Re: Nude With Boots
Post by: Uncle Fester on March 30, 2008, 04:41:03 PM

I half agree with it being the coolest thing... The dual drum aspect of it i mean. but a senile animal is so straight forward rockin and i make an exception for like 2 songs the rest is just so straight forward to me. I just miss the patience it took to listen to them, to listen to boris or roman dogbyrd/ hung bunny  and POTRE etc. theres no dynamic here. theres nothing special for me..... except the two drummers but... id rather just have dale drumming, that way hes got full control and can play to his fullest ability. but its not my band so whatever i say really doesnt matter... but this is a discussion board right?!?!?!

Title: Re: Nude With Boots

Title: Re: Nude With Boots
Post by: Jaron on March 31, 2008, 01:21:52 PM
There now it's not a post having to do with illegal downloading. *wink*

But, anyway didn't know this post would cause so much crap. We all do it. I'd be willing to bet that the Melvins do it, too.

I remember hearing Buzz's opinion on matters such as downloading and he said something like "bands should focus more on playing live than anything else if people are gonna do that." Which is the most obvious answer to give someone. Seeing any band live is not the same listening to it on headphone or through speakers in your home.

But seriously, someone made a comment in this post that spoke the truth about what were all gonna do once the album "gets out" and when it's released. I did it with (A) Senile Animal.

Were gonna get the album early, jam our asses off to it and then pre-order it off of Amazon or our local record store. Then were going to wait until they come to our nearest venue and buy tickets for ourselves and all our friends and our friends who don't know the Melvins and/or have never seen the Melvins and make new fans for the Melvins. Then were gonna go to the show buy a whole bunch of shit and merchandise, t-shirts, LPs, toys, canned meat, etc. Then were gonna get drunk and pass out and miss the whole show either because of heat exhaustion, some one kicked us in the head, or the incredibleness of the Melvins is just to great to endure*. (*Canada doesn't apply to the live concert experience)

We are the profit makers for the Melvins. And they love money. 

This dirty motherfucker has spoken.

You have the patience of saint, then. I'll download this as soon as I can. I'll also be buying it as soon as I can. Since as long as I've been a fan of the Melvins (which isn't atually that long), I've bought all the albums the day they've come out.

I know Danny Devito is a friend of Ipecac but, I'm wondering why HE helped to the commentary. It seems like Mike would be on there somewhere. Apparently and obviously he's too busy. I wonder if Danny Devito came out on stage and did a trumpet solo like on Throw Mama From the Train.

COD is not terrible, but it's safe to say that most people prefer real music than improvised noise.  Not that it matters, but I can clearly see why people would say it sucks.


And no, people that think COD sucks are not dumb.  I really don't understand why people jump to the conclusion that if you don't like the Melvins noise music, then you're stupid and not a real fan.

I was expecting to get the next Houdini or Stag
and then I went home and put on Prick, got angry.

So I figured, well at least this COD will rock, so I put it on,
and think oh funny the first track is another 'Shitstorm'
so I attempt to skip to the next track, I get 10 secs of blank
 air then back into the first track again. I was double pissed!!!

I think I have listened to COD only the one time when I bought it and it is still sitting in my cd shelf untouched since then :lol:  I've seen a set played by the Melvins similar to that cd at Ozzfest. I was cracking up the whole time. Here they are on a huge festival where they could have played all their rocking hits and gain a boatload of new fans, but in typical Melvins style they did the complete opposite and played a lot of their noise stuff and heckled the crowd almost the whole time. Stuff like that is why I love the Melvins so much.

So I figured, well at least this COD will rock, so I put it on,
and think oh funny the first track is another 'Shitstorm'
so I attempt to skip to the next track, I get 10 secs of blank
 air then back into the first track again. I was double pissed!!!


This is the best part of COD.

European people can buy it direct from Ipecac's European distributor at southern.net. That way they post it so it turns up on the day it comes out and you get free stuff too (admittedly last time it was a Senile Animal poster that was just a stretched version of the album cover, but still. It's free!

How can someone not like COD?  What do you want?  I would have loved to have seen that set.
They played similar sets near that date; it was indeed great.  My ex at the time got uncomfortable twenty minutes into the noise, so I listened to a bit of it from the outside.  :x

My girlfriend loves the noise.  She really liked COD the one time I played it for her.  I think most fans overlook the fact that the noise section of COD is a nice intro to possibly the best version of Eye Flys ever.  Personally I like the Melvins best when they combine some elements of experimentation with straight up rock, like HAT (Anti-Vermin Seed) or POTRE.  Here's to hoping NWB has some more noise than ASA did.

Improvised noise IS real music. That's why fans of it get huffy at others that don't dig it. Not because they don't like it, but because they can't seem to get it through their heads that other people actually DO, and aren't merely posing.

As for Nude With Boots: I've given up on expectations for the MELVINS. They pretty much do something completely different from what I expect or would ask for, and it always rules. I also would like a noisier record, but hell, it could be acoustic folk for all I know, they'll still kick ass.
Title: Re: Nude With Boots

Title: Re: Nude With Boots
Post by: anaconda on April 04, 2008, 04:34:07 PM
Exactly, they found the perfect balance between noise and songs with Kevin,
if I can say that - an album like HAT will probably never come along again.
But I'm sure I'll love whatever they give us on NWBoots.

Post by: I am the Sun on April 04, 2008, 09:01:25 PM
If it's pure noise I won't be upset, cuz it'll probably be some damn satisfying noise. The Melvins have only wronged me once, so I tend to trust their decisions.

Title: Re: Nude With Boots
Post by: Idlehanz on April 04, 2008, 11:13:57 PM
Make it a little easier.....

The Melvins are always up to something. But 2008 is shaping up to be one of the band's busiest years, with a flurry of activity on the horizon. First up will be the July 8 release of new studio album, "Nude with Boots," followed closely by the first DVD from the Fantomas-Melvins Big Band, "Live from London 2006," both via Ipecac.

Joining Melvins long-timers Buzz Osborne (vocals/guitar) and Dale Crover (drums) once more are Jared Warren (vocals/guitar) and Coady Willis (drums) from the group Big Business.

"This album we recorded after having done a lot of touring with those guys," Osborne said. "And the other album we recorded, '(A) Senile Animal,' we recorded with them before we played any shows. So it was a different vibe off the bat. We also knew exactly what we hated about each other, which was really good," he adds with a laugh.

Osborne compares "Nude with Boots" musically to the group's last release, but says, "This is definitely a weirder record." He also said he already has some favorite tracks, including opener "The Kicking Machine," "Billy Fish" (which he says the band played live "a bunch" before recording it) and the lengthy "Dog Island."

Osborne also points out that most of the tracks from "Nude with Boots" will be performed live this year, when the four-man Melvins lineup hits the road in July for a U.S. tour, followed by a trip to Europe.

In addition to featuring a live performance, the Fantomas-Melvins Big Band's "Live from London 2006" DVD includes an intriguing commentary track.

"At the last minute, Greg Werckman [who runs Ipecac with Mike Patton] came up with this idea of doing a commentary on the whole thing," Osborne says. "Mike Patton and Greg are friends with Danny DeVito, and he agreed to come down. So it's me, Greg, Robby Frazier from William Morris, Dale and Danny all talking. Mostly, it has nothing to do with the DVD itself. We got to ask him any question you can possibly think of -- what it was like to work with Andy Kaufman, who [he says] was the biggest a**hole he ever worked with. He told us really great stories -- all of which are on there."

While there are no plans for another Fantomas album, there are a pair of Melvins' collectable releases forthcoming, including a yet-to-be-titled limited edition box set of everything the Melvins have released via Ipecac, which will include a CD that will "probably be a compilation of a bunch of things that haven't really seen the light of day," according to Osborne. The set will be handmade, letter-pressed, and released in an edition of 500.

Also to be released this year is a quadruple-gatefold etched vinyl edition of "(A) Senile Animal." Finally, plans are in the works to mark the Melvins' 25th anniversary in 2009.

"We're going to try and do some stuff with our very first drummer [Mike Dillard]," Osborne says. I don't know what -- we're still trying to figure out what we'll do. He's going to come down here, and we're going to do some things with Crover playing bass, and him playing drums. Maybe we can get him out touring, but he's more of a family man than a 'rock and roll touring musician.' I don't know how many shows we'll be able to do with him, but I'm really looking forward to that."




A box set with everything they've done with ipecac?!?  Start saving now.

I'm gonna have to ask Dillard if he's gonna do it.  I hope he does.

The once was the FantoMelvins Big Band release. I love Fantomas, I love Melvins and I'd imagine the two would be great together, if recorded in a studio or with a decent live recording setup. Usually I'm not one to bitch about raw/unpolished recording quality (as my taste for punk,grindcore, and black metal would show) but with 2 bands that have a wide range of dynamics (not to mention a lot of heaviness) coming together in one place ,extra attention to detail is needed to make each sound discernable. I think that release is too unpolished sounding. (and not in the awesome Flipper or Mainliner way).
Title: Re: Nude With Boots

It was kind of weak. More like Patton imposing himself on something
instead of just easing up and letting them do their thing on the melvins
tunes.

I think that release is too unpolished sounding. (and not in the awesome Flipper or Mainliner way).

That one wasn't intended for release. They recorded it for archival purposes, but word got out that a recording existed and they got enough requests sayin' "I don't care if it doesn't sound good, I'll buy it" that they kinda had to put it out. I seem to recall it's priced inexpensively to make up for that, but it's been a while. Either way, I was on of those requesters so I can't complain. I'd love to hear a Melvins/Fantomas Big Band studio recording. Hell, now it could have three drummers.

If this box set contains "everything they've released on Ipecac",  presumably that would include the H.A.T. singles b-sides and the alternate "Safety Third" (or is it "Pink Bat"? I can't remember right now.) from the PotRE vinyl, right? Those would be the first digital issues of that stuff as far as I know.  Are the other odd singles just on Amrep, or are those Amrep/Ipecac? Maybe that's the content of the comp disc? Maybe there's more? I think it might behoove us to petition for a separate release of that disc.

I'm guessing it will be more like the hardcover version of Neither Here Nor There and will be available thru Ipecac's store, or the Melvins store so it's available to people like me outside the States.

...Hope I can get one somehow!
Like most here, I bought the Ipecac releases as they came out so i hope there's more than just the cd with 'stuff that hasn't really seen the light of day', like extra artwork or whatever to make it not seem like paying a bunch for one cd.

Anyway- it's all sounding good with all this news!!!  8)

Oh man, I didn't even think about that! With Buzzo & Patton's writing skills coming together with 3 drummers (4 if you want to include Bozzio) There's no telling what kind of mayhem they could accomplish. I think a studio album would be better if they just left their previous songs alone and wrote some new songs, that way it would feel like Patton wasn't inserting himself into The Melvins and Fantomas wasn't getting too Melvins-like.

I didn't get to hear it the first time they toured with ASA (they even have it crossed off on the setlist I have). But when I finally did hear it live, holy hell. Standing right in front of Jared's bass rig made it feel like my chest was going to collapse.

It's free. 

Here's my take on it.  If your gonna buy it anyway, like I believe most of us are, then if you find it, more power to ya.  If your just going to d/l it and not give the Melvins the $$ the deserve for it, then you suck.  I don't feel bad about bands like Metallica getting their songs d/l, because they have too much $, and they suck too.  Buzz, Dale, Jared and Coady should get paid for their time and effort because they make good music that apparently, none of us can wait for :)  And any real, true fan will buy this record when it's out.  We're just impatient asholes ( me included) that want to hear it now!

And even if you don't buy it, seeing them on tour and buying merch is an even better way to support them, as most of the money from album sales will probably go to Ipecac and whoever does their distribution.

The) Melvins
Nude With Boots

It's 2008 and The Melvins are still called ?family entertainment on another level.? Almost 25 years, over 25 albums and still counting. Maybe they?re just too dumb to quit.

AND? Some people STILL think the Melvins should be called "The Fucks" because they're so fucked.

The band still includes founding member King Buzzo and almost founding member Dale Crover, and they STILL have the Big Business guys Jared Warren and Coady Willis playing with them. This is extraordinary considering how hard it is for bass players and others to stick around the Melvins camp for more than two minutes. Everyone always loses their minds with or without drugs, but mostly with. They can't explain why, but the list of former members is about 40 and counting. Well, 40 might be a bit of an exaggeration but not by much.

The Melvins have been a band for a long, long, long, long time... A long, long, long time. They?re somewhere in between a novelty act and yesterdays news. It's a strange place for a band with a Peter Pan complex to be in but there it is!

What the hell right?

We ALL want to just get on a space ship and watch the earth explode, don't we?

As hard as it might be to believe, The Melvins have a NEW album in the can! It's called Nude With Boots and is scheduled for a July 8 release. This is good news because it means the boys will be hitting the road again in the United States AND in Europe! The rest of the world could follow, but who knows? Hell, that would be like eight months from now and it's hard to plan that far ahead.

Nude With Boots was recorded in Hollywood in a couple of weeks give or take a day or two and the boys seem to be extremely happy with the outcome. It's good? Groovy good! They played it for their wives and girlfriends and they seemed to like it so HERE WE GO! No shit Sherlock!

Let's see?

JESUS! The Melvins will be celebrating 24 years in the business this year and have absolutely NOTHING planned for it, maybe next year when they turn 25?

However, along with their new album, Nude With Boots, they do have a shit load of things happening THIS year that include:

1. A lot of touring
2. The vinyl releases of (A) Senile Animal, which will be in a super deluxe quadruple gate fold sleeve with four etched, one-sided 12 inch records
3. Two more 12 inchers with double surprises
4. A secret 7 inch (so secret that not even the band is aware of it)
5. More fun with Haze XXL
6. A split 7 inch with Rancid Vat
7. The Fantomas Melvins Big Band DVD
8. A huge limited edition Ipecac box set of everything the Melvins have done with the label as well as stuff you haven't heard at all
**Plus other stuff we forgot all about or don't know about or something

It's a big world out there and nothing is ever as hopeless as it seems. Dig?

Well...
The Melvins have put out a ton of albums and done a shit-load of touring in their vast 24 year musical career but nobody is offering them a TV show, and I don't mean a bogus "reality" show I mean a show like Sha-Na-Na had in the late 70's. It?s REALLY bogus. A Melvins show seems like a no brainer, but the world is not a right place. If you don't pay attention to TV then you can't realize just how bad it really is.

The Melvins? influence is vast and incomparable. It's global baby, and AND King Buzzo has even been accused of attempted murder! What the fuck is that? You know it HAS to be bullshit because when the King starts something, he finishes it. He's never ATTEMPTED anything in his life. He gets the job done, and so do the Melvins.

When does the man get here with all the candy?

Release date: July 8, 2008

Don't act all high n mighty because there's a leak out and your too good to NOT listen to it.  You know you want to.  And if you don't, then your not a Melvins fan.  It's that simple.  I want to hear it.  99.9% of this board wants to hear it.  We all want to hear NEW Melvins material.  That's why most of us hang out here day after day.  We either want to talk about Melvins old n new, or talk about bands we just discovered.  We will all buy the new record, but were not so high n might to say we won't listen to it 3 months early.

Dearest Jaron,

I was wondering if you could do me a favor and resize your sig?  It's rather large.  I think we could probably fit a few more posts on a page if you cut that pic in half.  It would also be really nice if you mellowed out a bit about the leak of NWB.  We still have long while to go, kiddo, and your antsyness isn't making it any easier.

Kindest regards,

i dont think they would be so mellow if they had not heard it yet and knew others on the board had.
give our boy Jaron a break, he just wants to hear it. As he should.
if Melvins didnt want it to leak, it would not have leaked.  I would like to believe they have that kind of control over their material.  Am I wrong?

Jaron,

I am pleased that you changed your sig to a smaller pic.  I don't quite understand your new selection, and preferred the other one.  Honestly though,  I'd just prefer it in a small size.  No harm, no foul though.  Stay mellow, man.

it is wierd how the folks on here who have it act all smug, make references to it, and preach about keeping it mellow.
i dont think they would be so mellow if they had not heard it yet and knew others on the board had.
give our boy Jaron a break, he just wants to hear it. As he should.
if Melvins didnt want it to leak, it would not have leaked.  I would like to believe they have that kind of control over their material.  Am I wrong?



I totally understand Jaron wanting to hear it.  Can't blame him a bit.  Or anyone else. 

I understand one thing.  None of us would be here if we didn't want to hear it.

Melvins board.  Melvins fans.  Melvins community.

I'm sure that's not it but I'm willing to lay money it won't be a picture of a naked person with boots on, too predictable. That'd be like using a picture of a dog in a nursing home for (A) Senile Animal or using a picture of a gluey porch treatment.

. A lot of touring
2. The vinyl releases of (A) Senile Animal, which will be in a super deluxe quadruple gate fold sleeve with four etched, one-sided 12 inch records
3. Two more 12 inchers with double surprises
4. A secret 7 inch (so secret that not even the band is aware of it)
5. More fun with Haze XXL
6. A split 7 inch with Rancid Vat
7. The Fantomas Melvins Big Band DVD
8. A huge limited edition Ipecac box set of everything the Melvins have done with the label as well as stuff you haven't heard at all
**Plus other stuff we forgot all about or don't know about or something

I predict that this is the year that they make more money than ever.

A quad vinyl. 
Two more vinyl's.
a 7'
A dvd
A box set
a secret 7 "
more Haze XXL/Melvins

Said it once, I'll say it again.

Start saving now.

i've heard it.

i'd say it's pretty 70's rock. not very sludgy...more alice cooper-y. pretty midtempo, overall. buzz is using some different guitar tones. dale sings lead at one point. really good melodic basslines and harmonies from jared. the double-drums are used more creatively than last time around. it's more experimental, but in the HAT sort of way, not the honky sort of way.

negatives: the last two tracks, one of which is a recycled amrep single, i don't recall which. a recent one. "flush" is also just a short space-noise track.

i'd say it's 3/4 awesome. a totally worthy melvins album. i'll be buying it.

i disagree. when i first saw the song title i thought it was just a reference, but now i think doing a version of dies irae (not sure why they misspell irae ?) is a weird idea, and i don't think they pull it off, really. i mean, berlioz using part of it in symphonie fantastique, that was amazing... and penderecki, or was it wendy carlos, i don't know, doing it on the shining soundtrack, that was cool too, implicit reference to berlioz and the relation to that plot born out in the shining, etc. ...but i think this version is kinda weak.

Dies Irae was originally a Latin hymn, performed in the days when music for worship wasn't allowed to have instrumentation, and was purely vocal.  I guess the title is supposed to be ironic, seeing as the track is an instrumental.  There's no real music that is supposed to go along with any version of Dies Irae, the only similarity is the lyrics.

Oh, come on.  It's two months until the album is officially released - do you really expect everyone to keep quiet about it until then?   It certainly didn't happen with A Senile Animal when that leaked.

Here's the album art on ipecac.com - http://www.ipecac.com/promo/minis/105mini.jpg

Ipecac should look to the future in the way Radiohead and NIN have done (and yes, many others before them) and post some sort of early & cheap version of the album (and other Ipecac releases) online for sale as a digital download.  They have the internet savy fanbase to do this successfully.

As for Nude With Boots, I'm enjoying it so far - especially the 70s rock vibe.

i gotta agree. this thing already leaked and it's early April. ridiculously early. what's the hold up with just putting it out?

I like the how The Savage Hippy is really just Jared and Dale doing the famous Abbot and Costello "Who's on First" routine.

Can nobody wait until the album comes out?  For me I just wait until the damn album comes out.  I like to be totally surprised when a new release hits the store.  It ruins the album when you hear little titty bittys of the album.  Just my p.o.v, anybody else agree?

If I heard this album I'd say that it fucking rules!  I'd guess that it's heavier and more melodic than A Senile Animal.  The production is probably really damn good as well.  Real Fucking Nasty would probably sound the same as the Smash the State EP which is a bit odd.

But who knows...

Just downloaded it (definitely gonna buy it). Fucking WOW! Some of the heaviest stuff from the Melvins this decade, very drum oriented (a lot more complex and tight-knit than (A)SA), laced with awesome vocal harmonies and even some ambient quirkiness of the CoD/Prick persuasion.

I just don't see why someone wants a shit quality recording which is what 100% of leaks are.

Idlehands you are a douchebag.  I don't care how many cocks you've gobbled around here to get your karma that high - it's a fact and you come off as 16 years old at most trying to attack me for taking the high road.

Its pretty funny you trying to tell me that Im not a melvins fan when I was listening to the melvins while your mommy was trying to get rid of you with a coat hangar.

I would rather wait for the recording in full definition like many others who prefer quality over filling their pink ipod nano with piece of shit MP3s...

get off your high horse before he bucks you off and then fucks you in the ass.

good point about the quality

some of you should be on that ESPN commercial "Are you questioning my fanhood?    "Barbed wire - all the way around - dt dt dt dt dt"    

jocks.

oh wait - who just made the ESPN reference?

i like the fact that there is no typical Melvins fan.  Young, old, smart, retarded, cool, uncool, cock grabbers, pink ipod owners, - I think that about covers all of us.   It would be very boring and gay if we were all alike.

word em up c&s.  you are a patient man and a better melvins fan than me. i guess.

i've listened to it twice now (because i'm a dirty bastard), and have since deleted it from my computer (out of guilt in all honesty, this is the first time i've ever listened to a melvins album before it's release, because i'm weak, and i don't feel good about it.). i don't want to "get into it" until i have the package in hand. i completely agree with having the art to go with it.to me the art is just as important as the music. i will now wait very impatiently until the release date.

I just don't have any problems listening to it. I'll buy it as soon as I can, and it's nice to know what the album sounds like in such an early phase. I also doubt if the band has any issues with the downloading industry, knowing how many true fans they have who will buy this album, and all the other stuff they will make available for purchase. And the people who will download this and don't like it, aren't the people the Melvins would make any money from anyway. OK, that sounds a bit strange, but I mean to say those are the people who will never understand what the Melvins are doing anyway.

There sure is some tension in this thread. I can see why but I still quite don't understand it. It's hard to see through some of the posts in this thread, are they loving, or hating? Thank God this will be over in a few months, probably even sooner.

What?


EDIT

Ah, now I see that I did reply to you.  I guess I did come off a bit pissy about it, but here's my defense, if that's what you want to call it
 
I was drunk that night.  No big surprise there.  I get a bit argumentative when I get drunk.  Not in a mean way, but I guess I just blurt out my point without re-reading it.  I never meant a mean spirited attack on you personally, even though I directly responded to you.  I have strong feelings about people that DO d/l Melvins albums and don't go buy it.  I never meant that you do that, I was just venting.  Much like you just did. 

I don't know how long you've been a Melvins fan, but I'm positive it hasn't been for 31 years. 

I have no problem with you taking the high road.  I wish I had that kind of patience.  I don't. 

I also never meant to sound like I was on a high horse.  I can't stand people like that, so if I came off like that, I sincerely apologize.

That's my defense/ apology.   Sorry for the poor spirit of my post, but it wasn't meant to be an attack.  It was just my hopped up attitude and love for the band that kind of made me "get on my high horse".


ps.   I also like to call people douchebags.

"Look out honey, cause Im using technology
Aint got time to make no apology"

It's true, you know. Technology will spread this album all over the world anyway. It only takes a few people to spread this worldwide, really. How is this different from the whole cassette taping thing?

That's alright if you got that association with it. But I don't see this album as a present per se, but more as sounds, the music! It's not something you can wrap into a present and put it under a Christmas tree. A cd on the other hand is. That could be a present. A really nice one, actually :D But it won't be until June I believe until they release it, on cd.

I'm not trying to argue with you or anything, or defend myself, but that's just how I see it. Quickly after it was released into the world wide web, that link just found me quite quickly, and I followed it.

No need to be disappointed! You learned your lesson now, don't do it again! (Hopefully that'll be in around a year or so, or with the next BB!)

Yeah I agree, but for you and me who will buy the album anyway it's not a problem, but with the casual douchefan doing it and not buying the album it will fuck the melvins.  Not that the MElvins are poor but there are lots of people involved with them that deserve more money than they probably make.

What a surprise! It fuckin' rules and it's not a retread of anything they've done before.

I will be there the day it's released with fuckin' bells on. I'm even gonna buy the CD, and I don't buy CDs ever anymore (I'm all about the vinyl- and I'll buy BOTH formats if they release vinyl right away). Hell, I work for a record store and I'll probably be able to talk my way into buying it before street date.

As for leaks/downloads hurting sales let me just say this: from workin' at/hangin' at the record store you can be sure that  if nobody's downloading it, nobody's buying it either and the biggest buyers are the biggest down loaders too. As for the hypothetical folks who would buy CDs if they were prevented from D/Ling: I doubt there are very many of them and I'm sure that very very few would be buying more than 5 or 10 discs a year anyway.

Post by: bathroom creep on April 11, 2008, 05:29:22 PM
So what do you people think of the album cover? Looks like it's the final cover since it's officially been on that Ipecac promo site. At first I thought I didn't like it but only because of the fact that I'm not a big fan of dogs like this... but on the other hand I'm a big fan of innocent looking Melvins covers so it's actually pretty cool.

And while we're at it, I think it's a good thing that we're all gonna buy this album and even more extra merch. My problem with the whole leak thing is that I don't feel that I'm supposed to listen to it three months early. I don't even know how things like that happen in the first place. When I first heard about the album I was sure I wouldn't gonna listen to it early. It's really early in my opinion. Actually I don't know why I'm writing all this since it's just my worthless opinion and after all everyone can decide what they do. I for one had the feeling that many here don't have any problems with it and that's why I thought it over again. It's okay I guess. I haven't listened to it yet. Still I will feel bad if I do. It's not the same thing like returnig from the cd store with the actual disc in your hands...And another thing, I don't think listening to it early or not has anything to do with being a "real" fan or not, I don't think people can argue about things like that. It doesn't make any sense to me.

Wow. I don't think anyone really cares :)

all around i like this as much as ASA and maybe even a little bit more.  i know the boys tend to go through phases with their sound as they do with what they listen to, i.e. hardcore, country, noise. this one and ASA for that matter, are showing more of a bluesy feel to them. kinda like the 70's comment, like zepplin and sabbath, but those bands were heavily steeped in blues. i wonder what has been inspiring buzz lately.

billy fish, kicking machine, smiling cobra and dog island will be new staples to the set i hope.

I just don't see why someone wants a shit quality recording which is what 100% of leaks are.
Most leaks are CD rips, and sound exactly the same as the finished product unless they are leaked before the mastering or recording process is finished.

It's not like somebody got a directional microphone and pointed it into the studio while they were playing the songs.  :lol:

I really don't want to get into it,  maybe that was the case years ago, but I doubt there will be any difference in distinguishable audio quality between the CD you'd buy at a store and the MP3s floating around the internet at this point in time.

And if there is, it's because the person who ripped it used a crappy encoder and a low bitrate.  If they had ripped it to a lossless FLAC file or a higher-quality (V0) MP3 using LAME, there'd be no distinguishing the sound at all.

What I like about the new cover is, that it is photography without any additional art/drawing aside from the lettering. That has not been done since the trilogy. I'm somehow guessing that the picture was taken by Kevin Willis, but the liner notes will tell us in 3 months.

So what do you people think of the album cover? Looks like it's the final cover since it's officially been on that Ipecac promo site. At first I thought I didn't like it but only because of the fact that I'm not a big fan of dogs like this... but on the other hand I'm a big fan of innocent looking Melvins covers so it's actually pretty cool.

And while we're at it, I think it's a good thing that we're all gonna buy this album and even more extra merch. My problem with the whole leak thing is that I don't feel that I'm supposed to listen to it three months early. I don't even know how things like that happen in the first place. When I first heard about the album I was sure I wouldn't gonna listen to it early. It's really early in my opinion. Actually I don't know why I'm writing all this since it's just my worthless opinion and after all everyone can decide what they do. I for one had the feeling that many here don't have any problems with it and that's why I thought it over again. It's okay I guess. I haven't listened to it yet. Still I will feel bad if I do. It's not the same thing like returnig from the cd store with the actual disc in your hands...And another thing, I don't think listening to it early or not has anything to do with being a "real" fan or not, I don't think people can argue about things like that. It doesn't make any sense to me.

Wow. I don't think anyone really cares :)

first: as soon as it will came out i will surely purchase it ,as i have done for every other melvins album.
second: i have listened to it once.
the problem about the real fan or not is not a problem of mine cuz i must not show to anybody my love for the melvins.also with  me  the real problem with the whole leak thing is that it's not the same thing like returnig from the cd store with the actual disc in your hands..but it's too hard and it happened yet with ASA and with POTRE...just like a illness for me.
surely i totally respect who don't want to download it now.
and still don't understand provocations or hypocrisy,anyone can decide what they do.
talking about the cover arts (if it's official),i really like it,pure melvins style ,cool and trash at the same time!
peace,love&melvins

It takes a while to load, and has hi-res images of every album released on Ipecac and of their artists.

Also, the font seems to be recycled from the Colossus of Destiny album cover.

I hope someone starts the lyrics thread soon
Title: Re: Nude With Boots
Post by: norecess on April 12, 2008, 07:36:00 AM
I don't want to give away too much information but I agree that Jared's bass sounds way better, that was one of the first I noticed. On (A)SA I found the bass slightly boring, it was mainly supporting the guitar lines, and there weren't many cool hooks like a 'classic' bass player would do. By that I mean a classic bass sound like Mark D could bring to a song, more grooving and rhythmic. I think Jared has mostly used his bass guitar as weapon so far in most of the bands he's been involved with, he used it different than the classic way like let's say.. yeah let's just call it 70s rock, since that term has dropped a few times in this thread already. Listen to the album title track and you'll hear what I mean.

I hope they drop some of the (A)SA material for the next tour. Some of the faster songs off Stag (Captain Pungent, Buck Owens...) would fit in perfectly with this material in my opinion. Ah, it's always a nice surprise to see what songs they're gonna play live on the next tour.

lets talk about dog island.   I'm hearing some maggot there in the psuedo-collapse at the end (manky).  I'm hearing some HAT (the fool) with the crunchy guitar early on and the bass that shakes your lower intestinal system.   its a goddamn genious track.

billy fish:  top notch.  in the vein of civilized worm but 10X better.

the smiling cobra:  ouch.  its nasty.   blow your fucking head off.   
suicide in progress: classic melvins.

and on,  and on,   and on,  and on.     

in summary:  I really    really like it.

at this point all short-comings in (A)SA are completely forgiven.

I could buy any one of those for $1 at the local pharmacy.            at halloween.


as far as leaking.   to some extent I see the thought process.  like FART says.    it finds its way here to the most intense of fans who are more likely to dish out praises and spread the word.     a marketing scheme on some level.

at this moment my favourite track from the new album.
it had been since the Stoner Witch-Stag-Honky era they didn't throw out of the cylinder a song like this.What a fantastic atmosphere!it reminds me to Ennio Morricone,or if you prefer,to the end of Roadbull+Harry Lauders Walking Stick Tree+Shevil

i also think it does have that whole 70's arena rock vibe going, it makes me curious as to what has been influencing buzz lately, like the first song does have that somewhat zepplin feel to it.

The internet music revolution has been a huge benefit to independent record labels.  The only reason music revenues have dropped is because only the big 4 and it's subsidiaries really report sales to the RIAA.  Sales to the big 4 record companies have gone down because people on the internet purposely avoid buying music associated with the RIAA, or spend their money on great bands on great independent labels that they discovered by ILLEGALLY DOWNLOADING.  It's not as if the music industry is being held up by the ignorant/dedicated who either don't know how to download music or are blatantly opposed to it.  People are more than happy to support the creators, but most major label artists get advances from the record companies anyway, with the profit of sales going to the label (while the artist is paying for everything that creates the product using the money from the advance!).

That said, I buy new releases from bands I like, and everything I can from bands I love.

This reminds me of Kramer's idea of what's illegal and what not. The conversation between Jerry and Kramer went something like this, after Kramer thought he just came up with an excellent idea, and illustrates perfectly how Kramer's idea of justice reaches a little higher than the law.

"But Kramer, that's illegal!"
"No, it's not illegal!"
"But it's against the law!"
"Well, yeah...."

That's not a result of no mastering, that's a result of good mastering.  The CD is mastered, otherwise it would be even quieter.  The mistake (an honest one, usually) most people make when mastering albums is submitting to the idea that "louder is better", even though this usually results in a good amount of dynamic compression, meaning there is less difference between the loud and quiet sounds in the album, resulting in a distorted and muddy feeling that can either be an unwanted or a desired effect.  Nude With Boots seems to be mastered to the point where none of the sounds reach the point of being distorted and muddy, but it's still dynamically compressed in the way that most digitally recorded records are nowadays to make them seem "louder" and less "dull" to some people.

While I prefer very little dynamic compression (Bullhead is a good example of very good mastering... listen to the drums on Boris and you will hear a distinguished punch that is missing from more recent albums simply because dynamic compression is so widespread and common nowadays), Nude With Boots and none of the recent Melvins albums have been plagued with anything terribly bad in terms of bad effects from the "loudness wars."

I understand compression completely and how it works, and am well aware of the modern trend of volume wars (to create the perception of a track "jumping out" on the radio) in mastering.  That said, this record doesn't have quite as much dynamic as other Melvins records of the past.  It's more straight up rock and as such I was expecting it to be mastered a little louder.  NWB seems to be somewhere around 5dB quieter than (A)SA to my ears.

I love how Jared and Buzz seem to share vocal duties on a lot of the songs.  One verse Buzz, one verse Jared, the chorus throws in the whole band sometimes.

Great stuff.

Jared's vocals at the end of Billy Fish where there were originally no vocals is probably my favorite part of the whole album.  He changes it up COMPLETELY while the song continues and it just grooves so damn well.

    Definatly not what I was expecting ... good thing/bad thing. I figured with the Biz still on board it'd definatly be more "rawk" ... but I wasn't expecting the boogie it swings. Sometimes it works ... others errr' ... I donno. Like say 'Kicking Machine' ... yeah, diggin' it! This is what beach ball stadium "rawk" should sound like ... but I'm not feeling others like say 'Nude with Boots' (that opening riff is a straight up Rush rip-off ... can't place it exactly, the tune Lakeside Park mabey? I don't care enough to listen to Rush to find out ... ) are just a little too sunny & straight for me ... same w/ 'The Stupid Creep' ... I donno w/ all those bluesy Steve Miller guitar flourishs an' shit it sounds like the soundtrack for 25cent wing night down at the Keg or mabey the soundtrack for Miller Time?
    Same goes for all the vocal acrobatics ... the thing that I've always seen as true gold is Melvins vocal delivery. While its' changed and developed over the years; for me its' always retained one thing ... its' hard to describe. Think Vedder, Nickleback ... any of that atroticious shit ... that strained, over dramatic tone an' delivery (w/ harmony for added emotion!)... that generic growl & croon that makes it seem the singer really wants ya to "FEEL" him ... Melvins never had that ... that syrup! Now they do. Jared is much more classic metal ... shall we say Dio-ish (an if anyone evokes what I speak of its' little ol' Dio) & somtimes it just doesn't work for me ... for example say the outro to Billy Fish. In old live versions its that classic Melvins outro (think With Teeth or Judas Congo). that killer riff that everyone waits to hear ... the money shot ... the riff "every other band" would put lyrics (an hopefully ones sang in a really emotionally pensive tone)  on because its' the catchiest riff ... duh! Had more impact w/out singing for me ...Granted, it can be done well ... I love lots of bands that sing like that & thats one of the highlights even ... but I always loved that Melvins didn't need that cheese! Thats' not to say I don't dig the new found vocal fetish ... I think its a great area for them to explore which they haven't really up till now ... it just sounds really different ...
    Probably the most conflicted/blindsided by a release since some during Mark's tenure (Stag, Stoner Witch). But thats' what makes them so fucking great ... Like they care what I  (or you for that matter) think! Many releases I totally dig have other "fans" all up in arms. Now its' my turn! Sure it might not be my fave ... but I still dig that they aren't resting on their lorels ... pulling a Ramones or something.
    But indeed there are gems ... 'Dies Iraea' great atmospheric creep ... you can just hear Buzz sneering: "Fantomas? Yeah, come on Patton ya fuckin goon suck on this!" Buzz's vocals are a real standout on 'Suicide in Progress' as are the great guitar tones. 'The Smiling Cobra' ... hell yeah! Takes your frickin head off ... nice feedback ... economical ... but sweet, great gang vocal (gets' a little Dioish toward end thou). 'It Tastes Better Than The Truth' more great atmospheric creep ... paraniod, cagey, & demented (kinda reminds me of 22 Going On 23 by the Surfers). 'The Savage Hippy' was great when it came out on the 7" ... still is! Thou, makes me wonder if this a little "leak joke". Is that really 'The Savage Hippy'? Hmmmnn, think mabey they held it back ... ya know to fuck w/ downloaders? That would be cool as shit! While I liked it better before its not like the singing really wrecks 'Billy Fish' nice to hear it studio ... great drums! As others' have said Jared's bass has more dynamics & personality and thats a good thing ... the dual drums are even better this time ... great arrangements, fuckin' hella interplay btw Dale & Cody ... better definition between the two ... both in terms of less unison more counter drum parts & production wise. Thou its mp3 it seems Toshi's leaned more into the "produced" sound ... losts of depth an' atmosphere wich totally suits this set.
    Definatly in alot of respects very accessiable ... I can see this album garnering a whole new set of fan/dipshit ... teenie bopper QOTSA types (they really dig those Dioish vocal inflections ... makes them identify more when their making out or singing into their comb in front of the mirror). I sure hope not though. I've listened to Melvins for more than 20yrs an' I always loved that it just never appealed to that set (or any set really) ... Hipster bullshit? Selfish? Sure, I guess ... but I'm sure some of you here get it ... ya get protective 'bout your favorite band ... the Melvins often seemed to appeal to a very broad spectrum ... and that's always appealed to me ... Though, Melvins deserve all of Solomons' riches I really hope it doesn't come at the expense of  a homogonized sea of backpack as fashion see ya next tuesdays ...

Post by: (the) Razor on April 12, 2008, 08:23:32 PM
I'm not so sure about this album - it's lacking a bit for me but I don't know why. I think it's because I was expecting them to go back to a darker mysterious sound like they went through on Honky and the Trilogy but then again they always surprise.... There are some cool tracks on it like the Morricone/Earth sounding Dies Iraea and there's also Billy Fish and Suicide and the title track but the rest are pretty substandard to me as far as this band is capable (totally subjective of course). I'm also judging this pretty early and I'm not even sure if this is the final mix (Real Fucking Nasty being passed off for another song for an example)...I also think that the vocals are probably the most average for a Melvins record in a long time. Did anyone else think that?

I hope this is the last album with the Big Business guys, and both Boots and Animal were just another experimental detour in their long history. There's nothing wrong with the BB guys - they're great and Big Business is great but I just prefer the Melvins as a trio. Kevin too, shit that was a nice lineup. ...Oh well to bad. Compared to all the albums I've heard this year Nude With Boots is pretty good and it's great to see bands like Melvins still experimenting though. Kudos to them and I hope this is a successful album for them, they deserve it. Sorry for the whine, but I felt like posting that...Anyway, I'll be getting it the day it's released.

Nice review Mount Ambulance.

Excellently! I such didn't expect. Great album! Absolutely all songs without exception are good. Undoubtedly it is better than (A)SA. More grunge, more progressive, more Melvins! Recently I wrote in "rate the records". "Nude With Boots" - absolutely 10/10. Bravo guys!

The album is good. Far from the melvins best, but it's good. Sound like regular rock too much for my taste.  Some part of it even sound like 80 glam rock.

I hated Suicide in progress live, but now, on the album version, I love it.

The Kicking Machine is jazzy.

Dies Irae sound like a Thrones song mixed with Shevil.

Dog island sound like old school Melvins.

The Smiling Cobra rock!

The drum on Nude with boot is straight out from 10 song.

The Stupid creep is an annoying song.
 
The song Flush is a cheap filler. It's just "bird-like" noise for 1 minute.

I can't see how there could be such a massive difference of recording quality on the same album between the songs.

The most likely reason there is a difference in sound quality for "the savage hippy" is because it was recorded during a different session, presumably sometime in 2007 for the APOD singles.

if we consider Led Zeppelin as a jazzy band ,i agree with you about the Kicking Machine.
talking about the glam vibe of the album,of course,i had this feeling since ASA.if i have to be sincere,i can understand who doesn't really like vocals attitude and would prefer buzz as the only singer in the band,like old times.listening to their vocal harmonies now can make you feel dazed.
my opinion is: behind  there's an amazing work!vocals harmonies are simply brilliant both in ASA and even more in NWB and about this i don't want to be blasphemous thinking to the melvins really "into" Beach Boys at this time.
anyway, the  picture from the NWB recording session  that brian has posted in the melv.net main page  explains very well what i'm talking about.

like I've said before here...    I'm thinking this all goes back to Buzz trying to incorporate the tools at hand. its fair to say Buzz/Dale are heavily experienced at their profession.    with experience comes knowledge. with knowledge comes maturity.   with maturity comes efficiency.      using your assets to the best of their ability is an excercise in efficiency.   so basically Buzz's thought process is "if I have two drummers I'm going to write songs with alot of drums.  if I have two (or three) vocalists I'm going to write parts in my songs that are vocals orientated.".     just like he wrote in alot of slide bass when Rutmanis was in the band and more intricate guitar solos when Mark D. was in the band, etc. 
with (A)SA he was close but didn't quite nail down the connection between what he had to work with and the songs in his head.   with this album I think he does a better job of connecting the tools to the songs.   the songs came out much better as a whole and get a little closer to what we've all come to know as top-of-the-line MELVINS "music".     before this album I was saying to myself somewhere deep down inside "whack the Big Biz boys ASAP!"    now I'm not so sure.  maybe there is some legendary product to be had here.

So far I like all the stuff with Big Biz better than old Melvins, but it's really hard to say that when most of it is incomparable.

I first discovered the Melvins just before (A) Senile Animal came out, and only listened to old stuff (HAT and before) during that time, without even knowing (A)SA was coming out or had come out, and I didn't get to hear it until nearly a year after the fact, but it blew my mind and quickly became one of my favorite records of all time.

I want to see at least one more album done with Big Biz, but think it'd be better for them to eventually part ways and do something new with some fresh faces in the band, keeping the core duo intact ofcourse.

The Melvins rock stuff is better than their noise stuff.  Honestly I don't think they'll put out much noise records anymore because it's simply not fun for them to play it live.  They probably never even played Mark D's stupid song "Lacrimosa" (from the Stag album) or "Sterilized".

I like the noise stuff. I can't listen to the bloated pope without listening to III. Without III the beginning to bloated pope is completely different and not nearly as powerful.

I think flush and dies araea are awesome tracks and felt that ASA lacked in the noise department. Noise is an integral part of this band.

I like to think about it like this.

The Melvins were completely different people then.  The music was completely different, and will always continue to be completely different.  I don't think they're ever compelled to record another album that sounds like Gluey or Ozma or Houdini or Stoner Witch, so comparing old and new is kind of pointless, when all that really matters is what is yet to come.

The classic Melvins sound has been copied many times, and they continuously show an ability to grow and change beyond anything ever expected from them, without emulating some other style completely.  Buzzo's guitar work is better than it's ever been, in my opinion.  He's always come up with odd and catchy rhythms, but the riffing has become even better, more "standard" yeah, but still incredibly original and captivating.  Civilized Worm and Billy Fish are probably my favorite examples of this...

But yeah, I am a relatively new fan, so I guess I've experienced the Melvins differently than most of you old farts and look at it with a relatively fresh viewpoint.  I'm just eager for what the future brings and less worried about "the glory days."

I  get a Bloated Pope vibe from suicide in progress at times.

I completely agree with glen on that comment he made. Buzz really does utilize his surroundings and in an intelligent manner i would say. He works with what hes got. Hes given tools to construct songs in sucha way that allows him to. Now when we speak about tools, i can say and i think that wed all agree that Dale  would be the hammer... with jackhammer tendencies, And buzz would most definatley be the saw. what are coady and jared? coady is just another slightly smaller hammer. i dont think he has that added feature to himself that dale has...You know.. the thing that can jam out nails. jared i would think is the whole construction yard. hes just there... wherever you go.. hes always gonna be there... if you just wanna go hammer sometshit into a piece of wood in solitude.,.. hell still be there eating your lunch.
I propose the melvins do a construction yard themed album next. Anyone who has the balls to admit that they need to do an album like this should speak.

I think NWBoots is song-wise better than a(SA). But it doesn't compare to Stag or HAT although it might be too early say. I really like nearly all of Jared's vocals. For example his vocal part 5 minutes into Dog Island is just awesome. I think he is better singer than Buzz but Buzz is better overall vocalist.

People who know, would know this as the "Zepplin" sounding opening drum/riff. I also agree about that song sounding like the intro to the shinning. IT HAS TO BE A COVER!!!

jam band pop rock

jam band pop rock.    guess I must be missing a few tracks or something.

this album reminds me of why I think so highly of melvins.   and after listening for 20 years I think its safe to say I have a well educated opinion.    I find very little to bitch about.

not even the vocal "harmonizing", which to me takes a darker direction then (A)SA.  you don't have any of that 3 part, barber-shop sound like on civilized worm for example.  any multi-track vocals are everyone singing at once just to create a larger sound. I don't hear the a cappella-ish stuff that came out on the last record.   and as far as doom...   what people call doom today I have never heard out of melvins (cept maybe parts of lysol).  yes they created the genre but I don't think any melvins release fits in the doom category.

I never really considered anything Melvins have done "doom."  Even though they're credited with inventing sludge a lot I don't think modern sludge or even sludge emerging shortly after resembles anything Melvins.

Melvins know no genres, and again they defy their label with Nude With Boots.

I listened to it.  I won't say much..... but I think it's great.  It's a really good mix.  Billy Fish and SIP sound so nice... although I have listened to the live versions pretty often they're not getting boring. Not at all.  Dog Island is h e a v y.
I think it's amazing that the last song is in the vein of that extended experimental jam they've been playing on the last tour. You know, after Ballad of Dwight Fry.   http://youtube.com/watch?v=txjzaOkfaXw

And I agree with Doody. I don't think of any genre when I think of  Melvins, it doesn't work. And that's why it's so hard to explain the Melvins to others who don't know them.

Anyone notice the similarities between Dies Iraea and the Theme song for the Movie "The Shinning". Sounds like a cover.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=EoHm6UywRTw&feature=related (http://youtube.com/watch?v=EoHm6UywRTw&feature=related)
It's a cover of Hector Berlioz's rendition of Dies Irae (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dies_Irae).  So yeah, I guess King Buzzo was watching The Shining one too many times during the recording process :o

I just played that at work and immediately someone said "That's the Funeral March from Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique!"

This album has struck me the same way as the last two have. My first thought was "This sounds... normal" but the fact that the songs are so catchy draws you in and makes you listen more and then you start to notice all the little intricacies. It's anything but normal. It does have a very classic rock feel to it, but it's done in a very Melvins way. It just gets better after each listen.

fully agree with Idle,but i also want to say that is undeniable the last two melvins are more "pop" oriented...or if you prefer more melodic.this is the story with the big business guys,totally different than kevin era,mark d era,joe era!personally  this is not a problem,a buzz or dale's problem,and i think is  the same for every intelligent melvins fan as all the guys in this board are.is not a crime to associate the word pop to the word melvins...in their discography there are songs like black bock or prig and in the last tour if i remember correctly they did a beatles cover.so what's the problem?i have listened to the new album a couple of time,i want to wait the album release to definitely pronounce me,but we are talking about a band that after every album sounds always new and fresh.

I don't think people want to hear old Melvins album's rehashed again. I think they just want the same fee ling they get when they listen to the old albums. That raw Melvins sound (not to be confused raw with heavy) . Melvins albums are very polished these days, a lot of people miss that raw part I guess.

to me MELVINS albums have been polished ever since they signed with Atlantic.  a brief interlude during the AmRep days and back to somewhere in-between on Ipecac.

NWB fits more in the in-between category.  ie the maggot.   it has pieces of the entire MELVINS catalog but its not like any other MELVINS album.    and this my friends, is why its a success.

At 1:26 during Suicide In Progress it seems like the Melvins are about to break into Great White's cover of  "Once Bitten Twice Shy".

And that's 1980's rock, 1989 to be exact.

Nude With Boots has a 70's groove to it.

The wise man has spoken! I think you, glenman, are right on the money. Every song seems to have its own vibe while remaining very nudewithbootsish... if that makes any sense.

Before the record came out I thought that billy fish and suicide in progress were very similar tracks but now I see that they are two completely different beasts.

I wonder if the melvins changed the name of real fucking nasty to the savage hippy in order to avoid having a parental guidance tag on the album...

Completely agree. I hear a little bit of everything from just about all of their albums on this release. If anything, this album should (in a perfect world) satisfy everyone, but no matter what there will always be people that will be unsatisfied with it.

The Melvins rock stuff is better than their noise stuff.  Honestly I don't think they'll put out much noise records anymore because it's simply not fun for them to play it live.  They probably never even played Mark D's stupid song "Lacrimosa" (from the Stag album) or "Sterilized".

That's pretty much the opposite of what Buzz and Dale say about that.  They love the noise and they love making it. Rest assured, they will go there again.

I'm not just a fan of both the noise stuff and the rock stuff, I'm a fan of the fact that they do both. I don't think either side of the coin would be as great without the other. I also honestly don't think the two sides are as far apart as others seem to take them.  The rock stuff is noisey and weird as hell too, and the noise stuff has the same power and drama they put into the rock.

I THOUGHT IT SOUNDED JUST LIKE WENDY CARLOS' OPENING TO THE SHINING TOO!
it sounds exactly like it.
very cool and creepy




man, y'all were snoozing on this issue, check my earlier post in this thread about "dies iraea" which is a thirteenth century hymn, don't know why the melvins have spelt it that way, it's traditionally "dies irae", namely, day of wrath/judgement.  probably most famously (and perhaps first ?) appropriated by hector berlioz in his 1830 "symphonie fantastique", also used by other folks, notably, as i mentioned in my previous post, wendy carlos on the shining soundtrack. i believe also penderecki (who figures heavily on the shining soundtrack) has done something with it at some point but i am not certain.

minor point, but yeah.  also i agree with whoever it was said that there is a morricone flavor going on. ultimately i think it is the weakest track, a confusing choice, at this point pretty well-trodden territory... for instance brian daniloski's (who was in meatjack, y'all might remember them from that 'we reach' tribute record that came out a while back, they did something off of "stoner witch") solo thing, darsombra, did much more interesting take on it, probably four or five years ago... etc.

That sounds quite plausible actually. I think the last thing they want to have on their album is a tag like that.

On a related note, I've noticed that cd stores don't really seem to get the whole cover artwork on the back thing. They always put Melvins albums on the shelves showing the front (back) of the cd, where the tracklist and stuff is. And yeah, I'm the kind of person who corrects that mistake everytime again.

Ha ha!  That's funny.  I do the same thing at my local record shop when I peak in the Melvins section.  The other funny thing is that in Seattle they get listed in the Local section, even though they never were a Seattle band.  I guess with the Biz boys in the band they're closer than they ever have been to being a Seattle band, but those guys moved to LA to join, so still not really a Seattle band.  It's really even a further stretch than calling Nirvana a Seattle band.

No, Ipecac and most indie labels don't put those stickers on thier albums.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parental_advisory  Not to mention Alive at the Fucker Club and Colossuss of Destiny didn't have the sticker despite having a loop of "stop fucking me you're giving me a headache!" repeated roughly 30 times.

There's something a little odd about each of their albums like Mangled Demos and Houdini Live having the cover on the front but not the GPT rerelease or 26 Songs, being able to skip to the middle of each track on the Maggot, the 20min of silence at the end of Honky, etc.

Ok , I've listened to this record a few times and i'm ready to give my thoughts on it and the band.

The record starts off with a bang. Love it. next track same thing really good. But then after a while it starts to get stale. I like the overall sound of this era of the melvins recording, (era:from H.A.T on) its a nice clean, bright sounding era in my opinion. But It seems like I'm starting to hear some stuff that I've heard on older albums. similar fills, similar guitar parts. The only thing fresh about this is Jareds vocals. Which he sings lead on at least one track. I don't know, I'm kinda in a shitty mood right now so that might have something to do with this review being so negative. I was just expecting to hear something as good or better than ASA.

As a side note, I really miss the evil tones of Melvins. I only hear evilness on maybe one track deep into the track list.
If you liked the harmonies on ASA then you'll be happy with NWB. same formula.

Hey all,
I'm a long-time lurker, figured I'd come out of the shadows considering the new album. I'm 18, been listening to Melvins since I was 14 or so.
Anyway, the melodic nature of the album didn't really turn me off, considering I was raised on 70s rock by my dad. I like how the albums structured with two commercial-ish tracks, a long epic, a weird instrumental, three short epics (you should knowwhat I mean if you're a Melvins fan), a short noise thing, then three bizarro tracks to finish it all off. I'd probably give it a 8/10 after hearing it all the way through about three times. That's a high 8 though, like an 8.995
Anybody else think Jared's bass isn't as prominent on this album as it was on A Senile Animal? You can probably blame my shitty computer speakers/MP3 for that, actually.

The city where the Melvins formed was near Seattle.  And they played many shows in Seattle. 


So that's why people say they're "from" Seattle, even though they are really not.

"dies iraea"   don't know why the melvins have spelt it that way, it's traditionally "dies irae",

dies iraea....   diarrhea?     hello?   people!?!?  pretty simple stuff here.  who doesn't like a good diarrhea joke?

that is a pretty good question.  I'm not sure where that track listing thats floating around came from.  but to support your theory please allow me to remind everyone that when ASA was leaked there was a track called "rat faced" which later went on to become (AFTER the official release) "rat faced granny".          so mistakes have been made.

OK, im in a better mood now. I origionally wrote a review for NWB here(http://www.themelvins.net/forum/index.php?topic=9534.420) and i basically said it was stale.

The record has grown on me now and I'd like to give another review.
So as I was about to put this disc on the back burner till maybe summer(tour time) i ended up playing at a friends house while we watched the Pistons get their nose rubbed in it.

No let me start by saying we were under an influence(not meth though). Which i think is the best way to "hear" music.
I was locked into this record. The mix of the guitar/bass tones, on top of the nice tight drums-add these awesome harmonies, really had me into it. The vocal parts on this could possibly be my favorite among all Melvins releases.
I think I first listened to this expecting ASA. But instead they went and utilized their talents a little more . Nice job utilizing.

This record is awesome. Definitely a grower for me. But now I can't wait to see them. maybe this time around i'll buy and advanced ticket.

that bugs me when i tell an old friend or something how great the melvins last records were and they go "i havent listened to them since Stoner Witch" bugs me.

my version sounds great but some tracks are louder than others.

They are onto you. Beware.

SCATTER!!


but for real though..  it may be too predictable but where is the 14 minute long drum track?
I can see why it wasn't on (a)sa, that would have been way too easy.  but the second dose of double drums calls for some sort of long drawn-out drum track.

MELVINS do it strictly business these days on stage.   they run through a setlist that does not waiver night in and night out.   I will be very pleasantly surprised if they add a 22 minute drum session to the set.   VERY pleasantly surprised.

now get to touring!

when they came here in vancouver with big biz guys they closed with a drum duo that lasted about 5-7 mins. They also did a kick ass version of Oven where they would pause in between transitions for like 7 seconds and then blast back in. im serious btw.

Nude With Boots is definatley an improvement after A senile animal. Its alot like The Maggot in some ways, differentiating although is the vocal melodies and the drum sound that is brought out of the shadow, as in the maggot the drums were drowned out and muddied.
On the first listen of this album I, much like other members of this board, was put off by the sing songy melodies and the cock rock moments. But after more and more listens i have decided that it sounds like the melvins went back to their oldies(Maggot, Stoner Witch etc.)In a different style influenced by the big biz guys/
Anyways my final word is that i LIKE the album and like i said its a definate improvement fromt he last one and ,like much of you.. i miss the experimental work that was displayed on HAT and POTRE and so forth and so on and forth so.

I doubt this one will stand as one my favourite melvins albums. A personal review: I love the record for the 4 first tracks, billy fish and dog island in particular are priced, but after that the song doesn`t really do it for me. I`ve never been able get myself to like the intro to SIP. The main-riff of the smiling-cobra sounds like numetal and they are overdoing the vocals. The savage hippy is great but I`d already heard that and Real fucking nasty is a much better title for that song than savage hippy.

Im glad I'm not the only one who thinks this. That riff is awfully generic, it ruins that song IMO. It's actually very similair to a Wrestling entrance theme, that's how generic we are talking  :?

However apart from that I'm really liking the album.

What if they just threw this shit together, and realeased it on the internet to fuck with us, and the REAL NWB is actually..... good?


I said it. I just cant like this album. Its not complete turds by any means, but I have higher standards for the Melvins. remember the first time you put on gluey? Potre? HAT? I dont want those albums again, necessarily, but i want thatfeeling  again. I think pop punk when I hear certain guitar lines.  :(

To each his own, I guess. This album IMO, rips all over POTRE. Great songs, great sound, gives me that "feeling". That being said, I've always been more of a fan of the Melvins more song oriented albums.Cobra is one of my favorites on the album, maybe the intro riff could be considered a little bit generic, but the chorus is super cool, reminds me of the cover song on Electroretard, pure briliance. The first time I heard POTRE I felt that it was a weak effort, but after a year or two I popped it back in and was able to get "it". Now I love that album. Maybe the same thing will happen to those of you who are not getting that "feeling" listening to NWB.

HAT and POTRE are probably my favorite Melvins records, and I thought they were both really mediocre on first listens.  I think because the Melvins are so incredible (and because they frequently reinvent themselves) it takes a while to get used to these changes.  I really disliked (A)SA at first, but after Here Come The Waterworks, I came to appreciate Big Business' involvement a little more.  I'm really starting to like NWB and (A)SA now (in fact NWB is making me appreciate Animal a bit more now), but they almost feel more like Big Biz albums to me than Melvins albums.  It's really more like a new band that happens to have Buzz and Dale and plays old Melvins songs.  I really hope the current lineup lasts (I love the dual drums), I just hope that in time Jared will get nosier and they'll start to play more Kevin (and some Mark) era material.  Slide Bass rules!

Howdy Howdy.  Long time voyeur...first time poster.  So I may be a little late on this one, but I remember reading on an earlier post that it was someone's opinion that the Melvins wouldn't care if people illegally download advanced copies of unreleased material, they're cool guys.  Do you think they would mind if you didn't buy a ticket to the show and snuck through the back door of the club?  Do you think they would mind if you snatched a couple of  t-shirts off the merch. table and disappeared into the crowd?  They're cool, right?  Seems to me I remember reading that Buzz holds a bit of a grudge against the chaps in Nirvana for not paying the Melvins what he felt they were worth on a tour.  When you're talking money, it's always personal.
But when did what's right or wrong ever stop somebody from getting what they want.
Title: Re: Nude With Boots
Post by: norecess on May 16, 2008, 01:07:10 PM
Apples and pears. If someone would sneak in indeed, then I'm sure they'd consider him lucky and wouldn't mind indeed. Haven't they helped in several people in the past who didn't have a ticket? I believe so. People really shouldn't compare downloading mp3's with real life stuff. It's technology we're speaking off, not the psyhical world. If you're talking about stealing cd's, then you're making the right comparision, not now. The truth is, can they really do something about it? Can anyone? Of course not.

To me the term 'illegal download' is almost an oxymoron. It's not like I'm breaking in someone's studio and steal the master tapes. No, technology allows me to click my mouse button a few times and suddenly it's on my computer.

If they would put those mp3's on their website and allow me to pay money for it, I certainly would, and more people would (I'm still all for a special Melvins subscribtion that covers things like this!). The people who download the album and don't buy it, are not the ones who would buy a Melvins album anyway in the first place. They probably listen to it once, don't get it, and never listen to it again. It's almost harmless.

Most of all, the Melvins are just being realistic!

And welcome! :D

about the double drumming,my impression is that they have spent more time on ASA (the double drumming was a new thing for them)with the drum parts than NWB.NWB sounds more homogeneous and more 70  8)

I watched QOTSA playing No One Knows on tv the other day, from a festival they played last weekend, and I was surprised by how good they sounded. I think it took them a few years to create a new solid machine. The drummer was really good, Josh's playing was tighter and flashier than ever and Troy added some nice effects to the whole thing. Didn't recognize the bassist, but wasn't he in Winnebago Deal or something?

I'm not a big fan of Christina Aguilera but I do like Destiny's Child, Beyonce and also Mika.

Post by: Justafilthylurker on June 04, 2008, 03:01:39 PM
Lullabies to Paralyze and the Self Titled are better than anything Kyuss did. Everything else is sort of variable in quality.

Getting a good pair of headphones made me realize how much Kyuss is just redneck youngsters playing bad butt-rock with a novel guitar tone.

Also, the few tracks I've heard of the new Melvins are really good, though Dog Island sounds like Altamont. And Altamont are thoroughly mediocre except for that No One Knows rip-off they did.

So to summarise, Altamont are better than Qotsa, even though they suck.

I haven`t sneekprelistened to this album as I did with the previous, the only impressions I got is via Youtube where a chap has laid out
Dog Island and The Savage Hippie:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnA9mzVmLC4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBPlztyaYuE&feature=related

Plus of course Billy Fish and Suicide in Progress. (of course, on Amazon f.ex they have 30 seconds clip of each song)

My impression: Promising, a bit in doubt as I always am with music I end up to like after some listening-rounds. One thing I miss though, is a song where Buzz sings all by himself, not with multiple voices overlapping him. The multivoicingthing sounds really good, but I really would like to hear Buzz dominate some tracks totally on his own.

Melvins aren`t unfamiliar with this layer of voices-thing from the earlier albums, but it seems like the bacground-vocals are more dominant after Big Business entered. It could be that I`m totally wrong, and feel free to arrest me.

Although I only heard 30 second clips, the two songs that caught me was The Smiling Cobra and The Stupid Creep.

I`m pretty sure the record will be a monster to hear live.

I haven`t sneekprelistened to this album as I did with the previous, the only impressions I got is via Youtube where a chap has laid out
Dog Island and The Savage Hippie:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnA9mzVmLC4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBPlztyaYuE&feature=related

Plus of course Billy Fish and Suicide in Progress. (of course, on Amazon f.ex they have 30 seconds clip of each song)

My impression: Promising, a bit in doubt as I always am with music I end up to like after some listening-rounds. One thing I miss though, is a song where Buzz sings all by himself, not with multiple voices overlapping him. The multivoicingthing sounds really good, but I really would like to hear Buzz dominate some tracks totally on his own.

i can understand what you are saying Schnab,but as you said,after Big Business entered this is the story.
my opinion is that it's great what they're doing with multiple voice,i love this band because always they try to do something new and don't care about us.
it's so sweet when people say,blaaah,the melvins now sound like QOTSA,or now the melvins will become millionaires,fuckin sweet :D
and of course,these songs will sound great live,can't wait for the european tour!

Lullabies to Paralyze and the Self Titled are better than anything Kyuss did. Everything else is sort of variable in quality.

Getting a good pair of headphones made me realize how much Kyuss is just redneck youngsters playing bad butt-rock with a novel guitar tone.

Ha :lol:, that's somewhat true. The first Kyuss disc especially. I like them alot, they got better towards the end, but are sort of overrated. I like the fact that Josh has been offered sick amounts of money to reunite & tour and he won't give in. I agree Queens are better. More depth in songwriting/playing. Lately I've been listening to alot of Goatsnake (Dog Days +1). IMO they're overlooked and better than Kyuss.

 Still haven't heard all of NWB, just the clips on youtube and what I remember of the two songs in concert last fall. It's only a month away now. To me it's a better experience to have a brand new CD and hear it in it's entirety for the first time with the artwork and all.

I just listened to the new album. A classic rock record isn't even the word. A nice, yes thats right nice, Heavy rock record . I think it  about time they finally covered the dirgey theme song from the Shining. I am very curious though....how does their work get "leaked" before it's actual release?

As far as I know the scheduled release for NWB in the USA is July 8, right?
I searched on amazon.de, amazon.co.uk and southern.net and they all named different release dates.

Amazon.de (http://www.amazon.de/Nude-Boots-Melvins/dp/B00191WSWM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1213044444&sr=8-1) says June 20, 2008.
Amazon.co.uk (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nude-Boots-Melvins/dp/B00191WSWM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1213046420&sr=8-1) says June 23, 2008.
Southern.net (https://www.southern.net/eu-shop/index.php?main_page=product_music_info&products_id=6546) says June 9, 2008. :shock:

That's confusing. Is the release date for Europe that much earlier than the US release date? Especially the June 9 seems unlikely. Anyone?
Title: Re: Nude With Boots
Post by: anaconda on June 09, 2008, 03:43:45 PM
http://ipecac.com/bio.php?id=5

From the Ipecac website:

" As hard as it might be to believe, The Melvins have a NEW album in the can!
It's called Nude With Boots and is scheduled for a July 8 release.
This is good news because it means the boys will be hitting the road again
in the United States AND in Europe! The rest of the world could follow,
but who knows? Hell, that would be like eight months from now and it's
hard to plan that far ahead. "

Title: Re: Nude With Boots
Post by: bathroom creep on June 09, 2008, 04:13:20 PM
Yeah, but isn't it usual that the US release date is different from the European release dates?
And why would several European shops name these June 20 and June 23 release dates just like that?
It just surprised me when I saw it.  It would be great to own the album earlier than July 8...

That is retarded to use that old of a picture.  And then bitch that they weren't sent a new one.  You can find new band photo's everywhere.  They've been with Jared and Coady for damn near two years.

After a couple light stabbings,Some Very Thorough Cavity searches i finally got the album and i have to say its a great one...i like how the savage hippy sounds completely ancient...Nude with boots is great with the drum intro and Dies Iraea well you know if you have had a chance to listen to it.

I learned to play Billy Fish and it's probably my favorite song to play, ever.  The riffage to the part where Jared takes lead vocals is so simple, but so fucking rocking.  The feeling it gives me in my spine is comparable to injecting kilo loads of opiates into my eyeball.

I have been a melvins fan since I was 17 years old. I am now 28. Maybe its just me, but I cant tell you one CD the melvins has done since their major label that I can say is a great album. I think bootlicker has a few good songs, and I like the senile animal cd. Buzz's voice really annoys me on this cd. Its like the maggot voice, and whoever mixed this cd is a moron for making the vocals so loud that it over powers the music terribly. I seen the melvins in dallas this last go around, and I thought it was one of thier best shows till they played the really short set. Maybe I was spoiled from the Ween show I seen a few months before where they played for 3 hours, who knows.

My point is, I can't even listen to this CD. I feel like they just threw this CD together. Buzz's lyrics are getting annoying, and I feel like almost every song on this CD I have heard on another melvins CD at one point or another. I really thought the senile animal was going to be their turning point as I felt and feel that that is their best CD since stoner witch.

I didnt write start a fight, or to be mean to anyone. I just feel let down by a band who I had looked up to.

Because you lose a lot with mp3 compression, particularly in the high end frequencies.  There is a reason why a 5 minute wav file will be 50mb and a 5 minute mp3 at 192kbs will be like 5 mb, that's a lot of information lost.  Sure, you get the idea, but it's far from the full sound intended and recorded.

I was just about to type this.  My friend downloaded The Maggot the other day and after hearing the cd for years the mp3s just didn't cut it.  It felt like I was listening to it on the radio except it sounded a little bit better.  I feel the same way about Nude With Boots.  The production is fine but the mp3s make it sound like fm radio.

Why did I even download it?  Because I'm impatient as hell and the Melvins are my favorite band.  Is it technically even illegal now that I have it preordered?

If MP3s are encoded with the right codec, and at the right bitrate, the sound difference between CD and MP3 is negligible.  The high-frequency cutoff is a side effect of poor digital mastering, though that's arguable.  Most CDs nowadays are digitally mastered louder than they used to be, and there is a smaller difference between loud and quiet, and frequencies above a certain point are cut off.

The CD will sound exactly the same as the leaked rip, unless it was an unmastered or pre-master or something.  The conversion to MP3 won't cause a big enough difference to be noticed, unless the person who did the rip is inexperienced.  I ripped all of my Melvins CDs to my harddrive, and they sound the exact same when played through the same sound system, using the same computer software.

I like the fact that Josh has been offered sick amounts of money to reunite & tour and he won't give in.
Even if Josh and John agreed to it, there's no way they'd get Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri on the bill.  Even if they went for Scott Reeder instead of Oliveri, it's just not Kyuss without Bjork.  He was (in my opinion) the force behind their best songs, and things definitely went downhill when he left.

I like Slo Burn WAY better than Kyuss, even if they only released one album at a very horrible quality, the songs are so much more powerful and catchy, and Garcia's vocals are better.

This has nothing to do with Nude With Boots, though, so I'll shut up.

 I like the Reeder/Hernandez lineup better. Their last two albums and the final sessions on that "best of" I think is their best work.

 On NWB, is Savage Hippy actually the exact same song as Real Fucking Nasty, or is it a different take, done later with Jared/Coady on it?

...or deliberately trying to make poor sounding mp3s. Like say for example if it was someone in or close to the band/their management who wanted to build the hype for the record but minimize the impact it will eventually have on sales. So they rip low quality mp3s and leak them so the fanatics get to hear the album and start raving but have a motivation to go get the CD when it's finally available. That seems to be a pretty standard practice anymore.

...but there is a lot of redundant information on CDs. At a high enough bit rate MP3s are hopefully really only getting of that redundant information. Personally, I can hear differences even at 192 kbs. I suppose the encoder that's used matters too. As does the source (original CD, CD burned from mp3s,  or LP).

You also have to figure in the limits of what system you're playing the music on.   On the headphones I use for walking around listening to my iPod, it won't matter at all, everything sounds weak.

I'm a huge fan of HAT, Maggot and Bootlicker myself (Crybaby partly), and I can't understand how someone would call them awful. It's beyond me. And it's not because I blindly accept everything they do, it's because I simply think these albums are great. I like how the Bootlicker is completely different from the Maggot. I love the bass sound. And I wouldn't call HAT a masterpiece if I didn't think so. Besides, I also really like NWB. It's all a matter of taste.

Nevertheless I wouldn't call you stupid for not liking these albums. It's just an opinion.

Just received a copy of NWB and I've listened to it three times in a row now.  Never heard it before through any sample downloads or any internet thing.  Tried to stay away from it until I can hear the whole thing at once, like it should be.

First spin I have to admit I didn't know what to think.  A little bit of a let down.  A little too Rock and Roll with the guitar sound?  Not great production?  Song Recycling?  Am I missing Kevin on bass?

2nd and 3rd time?  Jesus F'n Christ!  I get it.  Sign me up.  I'm on board. 

I've been blessed enough in life to have been following this band extremely close since Gluey Porch Treatments.  I know.  Everyone says that shit.  But it happens to be true.  It is astonishing to think that this is in fact consistently, every release after every release, for nearly 25 years now (?!?!?!) without a doubt the single  GREATEST band the history of the world has ever known.  EVER.  This CD is so good.  Not good...AMAZING.  I can't believe they can still pull this off every time. 

Not going to review the damn thing.  Most of you have probably already heard it 20 times by now.  I'm out to go pick up my lower jaw from the floor now...

Just received a copy of NWB and I've listened to it three times in a row now.  Never heard it before through any sample downloads or any internet thing.  Tried to stay away from it until I can hear the whole thing at once, like it should be.

First spin I have to admit I didn't know what to think.  A little bit of a let down.  A little too Rock and Roll with the guitar sound?  Not great production?  Song Recycling?  Am I missing Kevin on bass?

2nd and 3rd time?  Jesus F'n Christ!  I get it.  Sign me up.  I'm on board. 

I've been blessed enough in life to have been following this band extremely close since Gluey Porch Treatments.  I know.  Everyone says that shit.  But it happens to be true.  It is astonishing to think that this is in fact consistently, every release after every release, for nearly 25 years now (?!?!?!) without a doubt the single  GREATEST band the history of the world has ever known.  EVER.  This CD is so good.  Not good...AMAZING.  I can't believe they can still pull this off every time. 

Not going to review the damn thing.  Most of you have probably already heard it 20 times by now.  I'm out to go pick up my lower jaw from the floor now...

Here's a review from Mark Prindle:

Nude With Boots - Ipecac 2008


Some thieving nogoodnick leaked this CD on the Internet five thousand years before its release date, so I angrily downloaded it in protest. Hopefully the download is actually the final mix, or this review will look like a bunch of laughable half-truths!
First of all, they replaced Buzz with a girl singer and they all play violins now. Secondly the b

Ha ha! A little "downloading gaffe" humor for you to enjoy!

But to be deathly serious for a moment, a pair of reader commentators (or as Mrs. Potato told her daughter, "Don't marry Howard Cosell! He's just a 'common tater'!") earlier expressed concern that (A) Senile Animal sounded like "tired rip-offs of from earlier work" and "ridiculously generic, predictable music." Also, one guy told me to "quit fingering (my) pussy." I suppose that's off-topic but nevertheless, he did.

Well, sorry to tell you Sad Sax, but if you thought the Melvins were stagnating with (A) Senile Animal, then you're really going to be depressed when you hear Nude With Boots. It's got the same band line-up, same vocal harmonies, same angry riffs and same '70s hard rock influence. The only difference is that he no longer seems as excited about having two drummers; most of the performances feature a fairly normal percussive presence (with occasional cowbell, chimes, etc) rather than the over-inflated sense of drum-self prevalent throughout (A)SM.

On the other hand, if (like me) you are constantly amazed and overjoyed by the rock-riff-writing abilities of Buzz Osbourne, no matter whether he's staying in his comfort zone or taking visionary trips to creative vistas previously untraveled, Nude With Boots is literally going to kick your ass in, and you're literally going to have to spend the next month in the hospital undergoing anal reconstructive surgery.

This may actually be the most '70s-influenced album they've ever released, and is certainly one of the happiest. Believe me, it definitely has more than its share of pissed-off Melvins anger, but the Kiss-esque riff rocker "Billy Fish," Zeppelin-toned "The Kicking Machine" and goodtime rockin' title track are downright cheery - not just in comparison to other Melvins songs, but in and of themselves! Much the same should probably not be said about the mean, trudging "Dog Island," stomping, feedbacking "The Smiling Cobra," screaming, avant-vomit "It Tastes Better Than The Truth" or sludgey, noisy, sick, hissing, piss-angry "The Savage Hippy." So that bit about 'one of the happiest' - never mind that bit.

If it's art or diversity you're after, "Dies Iraea" has the unique quality of sounding like the Melvins doing a Trey Spruance cover, and "Flush" is a minute-long squiggly ambient piece. It probably wouldn't be in your best interest to look for art or diversity in the other nine tracks.

Because they'll be too busy KICKING YOUR ASS!!!!!

Why an 8 instead of 9? Nothing major - just a few lesser passages here and there. For example, the crux of "Suicide In Progress" is WAAAAY too reminiscent of an earlier Melvins song whose name I can't remember; I think it's on Stag or Stoner Witch hey you're the expert. And there's really no reason for the numbingly repetitive "It Tastes Better Than The Truth" to drag on for five and a half minutes. Likewise, there's no reason for the the pointless "Flush," period. Not that I don't think women shouldn't flush after their period, because I do. Come on that's basic hygiene.

In summation, if you liked (A) Senile Animal, you will probably like this one as well. But you nay-sayers: before you call Nude In Boots a 'retread' or accuse the band of 'stagnating,' think of how many completely unexpected and unorthodox releases they've tossed out of left field throughout their career -- the solo EPs, the 'monthly single for a year' gimmick, the Jello Biafra collaborations, Prick, Honky, The Bootlicker, The Crybaby, Colossus of Destiny, Pigs of the Roman Empire, Smash The State EP, Neither Here Nor There -- and ask yourself, "What are the odds that the Melvins are actually 'stagnating" right now?" Or ever will be? All they DO is take chances! And sure sometimes these chances stink (Prick, Colossus of Destiny), but at least they took them. And I'm sure they'll take them again. So let's enjoy the status quo for the short time that we've got it!

Also, wouldn't it be hilarious if both the Democratic candidates lost their cool at the exact same moment during an important televised debate? I'd absolutely LOVE to see something like this:

Clinton: "You have to, as voters, determine who you think can be the best president, to tackle all those problems on day one, waiting in the Oval Office, who can be the best nominee for the Democratic Party to be able to withstand whatever they decide to do on the other side of the aisle, and come out victorious."

Obama: "Senator Clinton, I think, is a capable politician and I think that she has run a terrific campaign. But what the American people are looking for right now is straight answers to tough questions, and that is not what we've seen out of Senator Clinton on a host of issues."

Clinton: "I was taken aback by the demeaning remarks Sen. Obama made about people in small town America. His remarks are elitist and out of touch."

Obama: "Jesus Fuck, how can you call the son of a goat herder 'elitist' and not feel like a complete asshole?"

Clinton: "Oh go pick my cotton, monkey."

SEE??? Now THAT'S Election Year Drama!!!!!

And sure McCain would win and we'd all wind up getting drafted, but that's not my point.

sorta feeling screwed by this disc because three of the songs are old,,  this is an e.p at best

I don't understand the complaints about it being a short record.  It's 42min which is longer than Bullhead and Lysol.  Even without The Savage Hippy the album is 39min, which is still longer than Bullhead and Lysol.  40min seems like the average length of a Melvins album.

In all honesty, ive had the thing downloaded for months, which is the first time ive downloaded any music, before release or not. Sad to say but I suck at compruters. Now that I have the real thing, with its wonderful coverart, including bloood covered children performing bestiality on a poor burro and lamb, i am in the process of pre-review lubrication.

I'm drinking Evan Williams and Shasta, with Longhammer, PBR and Hurricane waiting in the wings. But should I take that acid festering in my freezer for a proper review? Hmmmmm....

It's the exact same take from the Haze sessions. No jared or coady.

It's not exactly the same. It's "Real Sucking Nasty" on the album. Which is weird, because I'm sure at one point in the the Kicking Machine Buzz goes "Fucking Everything." But I'm also sure that song features the lyric "Ronald Reagan Headlessly, Little Horned Animal" so I obviously have no idea what I'm talking about.

blackie's delayed reaction review:

Well, jesus, let me first say how lucky I feel to be a fan. This is a band, like all of the best art made by humans, that personally changed my own outlook on the world. King Buzzo and Dale Crover have wrought the soundtrack to my dreams and have re-defined my concept of "pleasure" so many times that I have no words of thanks left, other than that their existence is the only reason, the ONLY REASON, why I would choose going blind over deaf if hypothetically forced to make such a rotten decision.

The other reason I feel lucky is the fans. I have not met one bbs user IRL, except maybe Idlehandz (but my memory is fuzzy on this point, pm me). But meeting other hardcore fans is a treat, and when I do it never fails to amaze me how interesting they are and how after a mere few minutes of conversation I feel like I have met a long lost family member.

Its funny when making a critique of a new melvins release how it's like pointing out flaws in a diamond. My own opinion means shit. But if one understands that mere knitpicking is not a judgment on the band, its idears or its current outlook or direction, nor a personal insult, it can be quite fun. I think it was an AMG review that described the output at the time  the review was written as mirroring such career arcs as Neil Young and Frank Zappa. I think that applies and its a good piece of commentary. How cool is it to have such a secret club that appreciates the importance of this band, that has continued since 1983? jesus, what could have the velvet underground accomplished if they had lasted for 25 years plus, toiling away in obscurity? Then again,, the years between HAT and ASA were long and fraught with compilations, re-releases, side projects and collaboration. ASA was like a full tumbler of patron anejo after a few years (FUN YEARS, dont get me wrong) of dilluted Pepe Lopez. My opinion of ASA took a year and a couple of shows to formulate. I no longer have the luxury of shows at this time, so NwB will have to be taken on its own studio merits.

The stunning one-two punch of Stoner and Stag finally proved, once and for all, the depth and beauty and uniqueness of the Melvins songwriting and versitality. After inventing "THE ROCK" for 10 years, they showed that they can invent or at least participate in building any "ROCK" they chose to. I always felt that the Maggot was a slightly boring step back as far as proving that they can facerape any rawk band in existence, and I also thought that the crybaby was somwhat lugoboriuaasss, but taken as a whole, song for song coupled with CoD and Electroretard, I(we) knew that King B and Dale C could do anything they wanted and be better at it than 98 percent of other musicians. I knew (and still know) that Melvins could do a british blues album and I would put it right there with my savoy brown or ten years after albums.

I'm not even going to attempt to squeezix an overview of the years between HAT and ASA. But here are a few thoughts I had during that time. Live: My thoughts of the 2002 portland show for HAT was negative, but this was probably due to: (a) the crystal ballroom got a better soundsystem, it sucked at the time; (b) I spent the majority of the show in the balcony and (c) I was in a very bad personal place. I hated the following Geek tour. I though the setlist was dull and I thought the show was too short. Coming off of the highs of the 3 set stag tour, 2 set 2X4 tour and the CoD tour, I felt that the performance was decidedly lame. I wrote a scathing review for the old .net site that was posted under someone else's name when the site was changed over. Not counting the Jelvins show, which I accepted as was it, I have had no complaints since. The Neither Here Nor There show in 2004 was the most viscous and heavy show I have ever seen. The two ASA shows since then has only confirmed that an hour of concentrated Melvins equals any band touring today.

HAT to me was (and is) a masterpiece. It distilled everything about the Melvins up to that point into a potent brew of heavy psychedelia. It was the mash up of Stag, Stoner, Honkey and the Trilogy that I was  thirsting for. The Anti-Vermin Seed is so absolute, such a penultimate piece of work that it just fucks me up every time I hear it.

I think Toshi is the current 5th Melvin. With HAT, it was a new sound. Very dry. Very Midrangey and drumb heavy. The variety of the material gave him so much to work with. It was on one hand a cheap and ugly sound, low budget, but he knew h0w to tweak the unique sweet detailed upper-register reheated meaty treats that made HAT such a pleasure. Production has always been such an unacknowledged part of the band, you could easily sashimi up the discography by sound. The Mark D era, the Jonathon Burnside era (the idea imo that Bullhead, Eggnog or Lysol were mishandled in recording in any way is absurd. JB = Ted Templeman), the Gggarth era, the Tim Green era and the Toshi era.Again, not taking into account the years between HAT and ASA, I feel that sound has defined the current sound of the band.

What I DONT like about the sound: the heaviness of Buzzo's tone is sifted away. What I DO like about it: drumbs, drumbs, drumbs......vocal hooks exagerrated.....the popiness apparent in Buzz's latest songwriting endeavours is pushed to the forefront, allowing newfags the chance to actually listen, like and buy. Moar fans equals moar chance of moar melvins, especially as Roger and Co. become OLD. Yup, OLD. They are OLD OLD OLD. I think its great, but I guess kids these days love teh young. Then again, find me a band that didn't become cool when they were young. (Dead Moon being the awesome exception that proves the rule.)

ASA - what i like: talking (great song outdoing ol black stooges), blood witch (fuck helmet), hawk (heavy beauty but see below).
what i dont like - the entire middle section as a whole is too much bluster, what has got to be proved. Taken individually the hawk stands out as one of ther few fast and furious songs I rate extremely high. the mechanical bride is cute for newfags.
what i love: civilized (with teeth follow up? beautiful melody); history of bad men (night goat my ass); a vast filthy (the torture never stops, and quiet complexity can be more horrifying to the soul than a thousand 2 minute metal songs).

K; new album:

The Kicking Machine: THAT RIFF......WANTON SONG, I KNEW THEY LOVED ZEP!! kills helmet dead in poor page's tracks, and so fucking jaunty :) MELVINS PICNIC!!!! but goddammit the melody of the last 30 secs brings me down.

Billy Fish - The whole 70's arena rock sound so prominent and worshipped in the later tunes. It's ok but I'm not THAT grooved by it. Yeah, I find it kinda boring, but if it was released as a single and I was the same person and I had never the Melvins, I would be no longer pissed that some douchebag was playing the radio and would eventually buy the whole discography, sign up on the melvins.net and generally annoy everyone about my extensive knowledge of the release history of Alice Cooper's Easy Action (Enigma retro still had the Straight logo....any broads wanna fuck? Im pierced and shit...).

Dog Island -  Dio island amirite? Great song, and if it was recorded in the Boner era as a single it would be better than Euthanasia. Boring mid range guitar overlay. I am sure in 6 months I will loudly be declaring another masterpiece. Currently = Mid-level Melvins heaviness (Hag Me) but destroyed by At the Stake, Your Blessened etc.

Dies Area - I always thought that "The Man With the Laughing Hand is Dead" was ciminally underrated, and that Fantomas was criminally overrated. This strikes the mix I knew was there and kills all in its path.

Suicide in Progress - Album two with the centerpiece is a supposed retread.....fuck that. I love this song. I love the cute-ass jaunty complex riff and the great Ween-esque breakdown into my fantasy 14 minute "Bloated Pope" breakdown. Yup, if its not the same damn riff its close. But I love the creepy quiet melvins making me afraid of the monsters outside the window. And this riff deserved refinement and close attention, much like Night Goat>History of Bad Men.

The Smiling Cobra - Oh HAY GUISE, I LURVE SlIpKnOt, YoU lIeK mEtAlLz ToO????? WaIt, WhAtZ tHiS, i'M SOOOOOOOO CoNFuSSSeddd!!!!!!!!!!! ItS LiEk NOIZZYYY!!!!! Great goddammmmm tune.

Nude With Boots - So fucking gehy Im tempted to remind myself of In the Rain. Except that this riff is the first time I have ever been raped by a cute flower. I feel it going up my ass, and i wanna protest too much, but i know when I wake up i will have a cock of steel, ready to impregnate a flower patch filled with butterflies, and I wont be stinky. My new name will be Diego Buttercup and I have an idea of a documentary I wanna make about YOU.....

Flush - Pigs of the Roman B-Side is Nike gud. :) Ya, you'll lurve CoD, better than Tool at least....its a cover of Three of a Perfect Pair remixed by Adrian Belew, and it doesnt have some fag name like "ten thousand days ago my mom was raped by jambi in the pot."

The Stupid Creep - wow. cute again. roger talking about bloodhound rape through a mouth of garbled poppy cheesecloth shit. will make the lyrics board fight to the death yet again for a great punk single released on Stiff in '78.

The Savage Hippy - THE HIGHLIGHT for us old school freaks, this is the third of a trilogy of noize and fucking nasty bad news that we need especially in this election year. Sorry, i just stuck my dick in an electric fan while listening to this thank god recognized does not deserve to be languishing on a fucking 'specialty am rep' release. Goggles>Speciman>The real savagefuckingnastyhippie.

It tastes better than the truth - jesus the melvins suck. is this message saved thank you big business remix? should be released as a b side to an ISIS collab ep amirite? lollerz. still, its fucking cute. NOT AS CUTE AS THE BACKGROUND MURAL CHANGING DURING ANOTHER 4th OF JULY......ruined in europe. Now that made my penor hard.

got it today,  just listened through one complete spin and am in the middle of round 2.

some preliminary thoughts, subject to revision upon further listening:

- on the poppier-sounding tracks: when i want to listen to a glorified led zeppelin tribute band, i'll listen to wolfmother.
- on the more experimental tracks: when i want to listen to faux-bootleg quality recordings, i'll listen to "st. anger."
- in general: the melvins need to ditch toshi and john golden before they record their next album.
- beyond the music: did mackie throw together the album art five minutes before the bell at the start of Graphic Design 101?

it's not unusual for me to be overly critical of a brand new album by a band i like after the first few listens, but NWB doesn't thump me in temples and make my eyeballs burst the way HAT and ASA did; it's not mysterious and jarring the way Honky and POTR are; it's not even amusing and  maddening like PRICK and COD. NWB instead tries to be all those things in one album but falls short on each count.

to summarize: the new Two-Foot Yard record is still the best album of 2008, in my opinion.

It's bad. It sounds like RUSH, and not in a good way. I mean the bad RUSH.  The guitar tone sounds like something you'd find in an eighth-grade lunchbox. This song is the worst part of the 70's, MAGNIFIED. It is the sum of all of the displeasurable parts of NWB: wimpy guitar tone, cheesy vocals and anthemic melody -- anthemic melody being a huge negative in my book. "Watch THIS, I'm about to STATE something!" FUCK YOU, anthem. Take off your loud clothes and tell me something interesting instead of posting pictures of yourself:

I do like it but I agree with Dudbean at the same time regarding the not so hot aspects of the album and the fact that I will be introducing someone to the band with this album but I'm not sure if its the impression I want to give of the band. But with 90 million albums and numerous style changes, its hard to give someone an accurate impression of the band without playing them all, preferably in chronological order'.

Take Zappa for instance. How do you pick one album and say, this is what he was all about?

That's a great example.  What do you want?  The same thing over and over, or a band that changes styles?  So what if one or two albums miss you personal bullseye?  I'd take some change over repetivness any day.  Even if they try something new now and then and I can't agree with it.

I think Nude with Boots is one of the tracks where the new guitar tones are more of a positive than a negative. The heavier songs end up sounding a bit generic sometimes.

Does anyone else think Buzz sort of accidentally "invented" classic rock? Like in that interview where he mentions he was going for a Gang of Four type of thing with the drums on the Kicking Machine. It's like he's sort of combined a lot of interesting elements without noticing that they all average out to something quite ordinary.

I do like this album though. It's normalish, but there are loads of interesting elements in each song and all the various parts are really well thought out. There is a lot going on in these songs.

I hear you knockin.    considering you're approaching someone who has at least some grasp of underground music.    nude with boots is far from a prime example MELVINS track.

but seriously, I dig it.  theres a few tracks on NWB's that, upon first listen, I automatically associate with past MELVINS tracks.  The title track defies any association.     and that, my good man, is a little piece of what attracts me to MELVINS.  you just got to get past that opening gay little guitar riff.

That's a great example.  What do you want?  The same thing over and over, or a band that changes styles?  So what if one or two albums miss you personal bullseye?  I'd take some change over repetivness any day.  Even if they try something new now and then and I can't agree with it.

That's about how I feel about Neurosis.

See, I doubt they'll be playing that live as it was recorded during a different recording session, and without Jared and Coady. Of course that doesn't mean anything - they can still play it live. I guess what I'm saying is I don't dare to imagine them playing it live yet.

Yesterday I was thinking, if they have no intension to play The Savage Hippy live, for the reasons I stated i my previous post, then why would they even put it on the new album, and even change the title (so it doesn't contain the word 'fucking')? Maybe so because they actually do intend to play it live.

Just wondering why they put the Savage Hippy on Nude with Boots, originally it was on Smash the State ep.  It's a great song don't get me wrong, but besides that this album is F'n amazing.  Oh and if y'all wanna save some money get this album at the show, I only payed $10.00 US, and no tax.

Because this one of the laziest albums done by Melvins.

 Don't get me wrong, I like it, but it's a lazy effort. Billy Fish (and I think even Suicide or vice cersa) was written for ASA but never made the cut. So in the end you have one or two average songs, a cover, one filler, two previously written songs for a past album and a previously released song! Maybe it's just me but that's the way I see this album.

By those logics, you must really hate Lysol; half of the songs are covers, the first two songs are basically one song, and seem to consist of some random noise, and the closing song is only about three minutes long (from the top of my head).

How do you know for sure Billy Fish and Suicide In Progress were written for (A)SA? Do you have a source?

Hey now, I never said I hate the new album, I just said it's lazy...or at least seems that way. Maybe because I'm looking at it as more of an extended EP than a full blown album, that's all. By the way I fucking love Lysol, everything down to the album art.

I read in an interview (pre NWB) that one of those two songs were written back in the ASA sessions but never made the cut because it didn't fit in with the rest of the album. No source but I swear on it!

"In 2007 during the tour you have played the song Suicides In Progress. Will it appear on the new album?" 

Dale - "That song advanced from the sessions for the album (A) Senile Animal. We had decided not to insert it on that album. Now the new album is ready and the song will certainly be included!"

I don't need to listen to Lysol closer, you should read my posts a bit more carefully. I was just being sarcastic after the OP stated he throught NWB was a lazy effort and the argumentation he used to back it up.

I don't know how I feel about Nude With Boots. I always kind of liked the Melvins because they were off-kilter, weird, and wildly creative, but NWB feels kind of throwbacky and mayyybe even kind of straightforward in places. I love Billy Fish, The Savage Hippy and It Tastes Better Than the Truth though. Tastes Better reminds me a lot of something Karp might have made.

I'm not really a fan of classic rock or anything, and I haven't heard any of the songs live. I've heard them pretty loud though. It just hasn't surprised me as an album, which is something I can usually count on from the Melvins. I think it's a grower though. We'll see.

well.... yeah it makes the melvins MELVINS, but does that mean this is their best album to date because its stuff tha they havent really done before? to me it sounds like they have done some of this stuff before but in a better way. the only thing I find different is the amount of vocals and the dual drumming. I dont hate it... i just think its alright. to me, it just lacks something experimental that the melvins seem to show in everyone of their past records.

Maybe man, maybe. I like the production and the tones and a lot of the vocals, it's just that there isn't a stellar track on it that really makes me go, fuck, yes, only the Melvins could craft something this ridiculously weird and intense and.. Melvinsish. The content just isn't clicking with me as much as everything else I've heard from them. It's a new Melvins, yeah... They're working in a new zone.. Not unlike when they worked with Lustmord and then had a brief flirtation with electronic music, or the way they worked with a really eclectic pallete on Stag... So maybe this is a phase  where they're toying with classic rock. That's fine and dandy and natural and commendable and all, it's just that it's not really a sonic palette that's to my tastes as much. Buzz likes Alice Cooper, I'm no Alice fan. That's the way it goes.


That said, I didn't like HAT or Houdini much to start with either. It's like a way, way more deadpan and intelligent Spinal Tap? Does that make sense? A serious joke, that isn't really a joke but is a joke, but isn't?... Just me?

I still love it and play the shit out of it, but I can't help but feel like something is missing on this one. As I have said before, I would really like to see them go back to some of the more experimental type stuff like on Honky, Stag, or H.A.T.

A bold statement indeed, considering some of their post-90's gems. I would have to say that this could be their most straightforward record since side A of Stoner Witch, which isn't a bad thing. I love Dog Island, The Smiling Cobra and even The Kicking Machine. I feel like many of these tracks could be Senile Animal B-sides. All things considered, it does stand out among Melvins records in it's basic approach.

Suicide In Progress, Nude With Boots, The Smiling Cobra, Dog Island, The Savage Hippy, and the Kicking Machine are stellar tracks. They should do The Savage Hippy live. Dies Irae has a great atmosphere and is amazing live, It Tastes Better Than The Truth is creepy as fuck, The Stupid Creep is a cute little song, and Billy Fish shines live. Flush is ok.  :?

This video made me appreciate Billy Fish even more:

One of their best for me. A top 7 contender!

Looking at buying this on vinyl, and was just curious as to what colors this was originally pressed on. Ever since I got stuck with one of those red vinyl Houdinis (Houdinies?) I've been trying to be more cautious about buying vinyl.

Nude With Boots hasn't been bootlegged so you should be safe. The first vinyl pressing was warped, though, so if you want an LP you can actually play, I'd suggest the second press. This is distinguished by "JK02" written on the back sleeve. It's red vinyl.

We are trying to get to the bottom of this, in the meantime, if you have a severely warped copy please return it to the place you got it for a refund or exchange. VERY sorry for the inconvenience.

Ok so I will admit to being a bigger fan of Melvins before BB although I've always liked and appreciated the newer stuff too.I really dig Bull and Bees and Senile Animal, and even most of Bride Screamed Murder....but the one album I've never cared about much was this one. Recently I learned about the Ipecac Red Vinyl and what ones are warped vs one what to buy (Thanks Jules!) ...so I saw one cheap on Ebay and nabbed it. Up till now I've only had some crappy mp3.  I'm only finishing side 1 at the moment and I am already writing this post to admit how fucking wrong I have been. It's most likely that hearing properly off the vinyl for first time is letting me truly hear the album. I can't wait to hear what a proper vinyl copy of Bulls & the Bees will sound like...and Freak Puke. Where are ya Amp Rep?!?  :P

I know who plays on the song, and I know it was a single first for the HOF tour. I was just commenting on the album and giving an example of one of the many awesome songs on it.
 
So once again...tell me you don't like that song cus it's part of Nude With Boots Mr. Hater (Is it the boots part that offends you? Because the boots are covering up the feet? :P)

I keep most melvins albs on rotation. find myself going through the different "eras" or just whatever one I wanna hear then. NWB just rubs me the wrong way. Has it's moments, just kinda eh.

Not to say that I thing Mr. Crover and company aren't massively talented, ageless, and handsome, in case they read this.

awesome video of the guitar lesson above. so cool. Buzz is a genius. those riffs!

the one thing that sold me on this album before i got a hold of it was the Amoeba show. the cuts from this album played at that show were fucking KILLER. that whole show is amazing of course.

i bought a copy of this at the Isis show a couple of years ago at a merch table discount due to the known warping issue.

sure enough, i got home and opened it, and the tone arm got bounced around like the SS Minnow.


i went down to the basement, found a big pile of leftover floor tiles from a bathroom renovation, and stacked them on top of the LP.



fast forward ~2 years...today i uncover the LP, take it out and while there's still some slight wavering, it plays just fine. nice. 8)

So true. I think Bride and Freak Puke could maybe be in the mix, but for a long time, i myself have thought the same.

Right there with you but if you really think about it, Nude had something unique to it that also tied it in perfectly with all of the 90s and 00s output. Perfectly bookending that era, the beginning being Stoner Witch I would say.

Not sure how I ended up re-reading this whole 60 page thread, but I did. Amazing how the lineup and sonic change was taken back then. History repeats.

Kicking Machine is still my absolute jam from this record, but I also consider the beginning of "Suicide in Progress" and the slithering first half of "Dog Island" to be essential, inexorable Melvins. And there's plenty more on here to discover. This record does have more passages of noise, atmosphere, and experiment than its predecessor. But overall pretty solid. I go back and forth on "It Tastes Better Than The Truth" as I like it as a piece but it it just doesn't seem like it belongs on a Melvins album.

"Billy Fish" and "Dies Arrhea" are solid (or liquid if you prefer).

"Savage Hippy" is a better name and works well on the album, but it does disrupt the discography if you already collected the non collector scum disc or whichever amrep CD has the singles. Would have preferred they hold off for the album.

"Stupid Creep" is easily overlooked but a tight little punk (punk for the Melvins) number.

"Nude With Boots" is the anomaly, a song which seems to have a melodic joyous tone unlike almost all the records before or after. It's only in the pleated and collapsed rhythms, the length of riff, and the eventual doomy resolution that it's clearly and unequivocally Buzz.

It's a righteous album.

"Billy Fish" TOOO!
Whatever, I do consider "Nude With Boots" as one of their best albums.
The writing process, as one say in America, is brilliant, "Billy Fish" is a good example. There is something scientific in this album and something really weird too (just like the joyfull feel' sometimes), somehow autistic.

Definitely this has a special place in my heart. It was one of those albums I just lived in for what felt like a whole summer, and it got me through some times.

It's Righteous.
