I can't get "What's Wrong With You" out of my head.

you should check Steven's solo album if you love that song!

Like that interview with Joe B!  Never heard the official story of the dog noises at the beginning of Sweet Willy Rollbar.

Yeah, that was an awesome interview!  I love how he described making physical devices rather than using traditional audio effects (that everyone else was using).

Stag and Stoner Witch have the best production ever

Creative peak in my opinion.

sure, Mark D had a lot to do with that

What about the harmonies with Steve, especially on "What's Wrong With You"? Certainly a new sound for the Melvins and they (Melvins and harmonies) sound great.

Beatlesque

Opps, an editing error there from me!

 :P

anyway, i can see why Melvins fans are not too much into Steven "glammy" style...though i like to think he's the bassist Buzz&Dale have always dreamed to play with  :D

I've got no doubt that being able to tour constantly without needing to worry about a bass player disappearing or whatever endears him to them and I'm sure he's a lovely fella behind the scenes but all the carry on on stage with the scissor kicks and dancing gets old pretty quick and although he has a decent tone it feels like they're 'settling' for him.

i think this guy added more bass lines than Jared in five and more years. still i can see your point about his stage presence

Same here, or at least not in Melvins anyway.

I went to the Adelaide show last Saturday and to be totally honest was a bit bored really. I didn't see Redd Kross and rocked up about 15 mins before the Melvins set and although I liked the first 3-4 songs of their set they then went into more straight ahead stuff and extended jams/doodling the rest of the way which had me watching the clock. I have to admit I don't like Steven McDonald and his antics and thought the band sounded much better in the BB and Rutmanis era. I last saw them in 2003 with Rutmanis and just wish I hadn't have missed the BB version four years ago.

Only merch I saw on the way out was 2-3 Melvins/Redd Kross t-shirts at $30 a pop and a Steven McDonald solo CD for $20.

A couple of pics taken by the venue's photographer below.

thanks for the review.speaking in general looks like for Steven is a love or hate. to me he sounds great as bassist but it's a matter of tastes.

The Love disc is not meant to be taken seriously

mmh.. i think they take it seriously. Buzz&Dale are huge Throbbing Gristle fans.. this album has that vibe. i can see their point
