Buzz is lookin' Trim these days.  8)

Dig the All stars.

No wonder they got their own trading cards now.

I wouldn't mind a Steven Macdonald rookie card...or a Dale Crover Flair ultra series card...He's the Wayne Gretzky of drummers.

Seriously these guys need to cash in, start doing Ads for Little Caesars or Dominoes or something.  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Manchild series Action figures.  8)

 Walsby Crushes on the City Trends LP, It's a 45 RPM 12"

DON'T SKIMP OUT YOU CHEAPSKATES!  PICK ONE UP!!! ASK FOR IT BY NAME!!!

DAVIDIANS! CITY TRENDS!!!

These guys know. This shit is punk as fuck. Sounds like they had a blast working on these tunes.

As for the message behind the music, I'm not certain,I really don't know what's what... but I think maybe...It's almost like a "fuck you" to trendy wannabe bullshit, I want to say I *get it* but I'm so out of touch with what I'm hearing on this, It's music for music lovers. I'll never be able to keep up, I'm really happy I picked this up, feels like I own a part of something real, and legit.

Walsby, wayyy too modest. Don't let him fool ya..he's a Champion Drummer, I don't think I could ever hold a pair of sticks next to him, he owns the bragging rights over a lot of dead beat drummers, His drums are really showcased in the mix, totally dry and heavy the way good drums should sound.  8)

I can't really review this thing yet. I'm still enjoying it.  It's so complex and intricate. 

It's Ace.

It's a lot more oldschool than I was initially expecting despite holding my Judgement in reserve, and Just keeping this one as something you need to discover for yourselves. honestly It's real Good shit.

The guitar reminds me of Cool and melodic Jesus Lizard meets like I wanna say, almost a Germs-Black flag sounding refrain.  Can't say you'll have your fill of this by the time Side B is over and Done.

 full on assault like oldschool Melvins bombastic sounding with a lot of really heavy vocals.

..I'm going to spin it right now in fact..that's a pretty good idea. *Yeah, this has a pinch of west-coast sounding influence I'd swear*

Later haters.

I don't know how Brian can slay a kit like that..Beastly friggin' drumming dude.  8) 8) 8)

He's got those intricate Choppy little hi-hat Crover-esque moves down pat and owns that shit like no ones Big-business with some down pat oldschool hardcore style going on. 

Check it out.

His older band Shiny Beast is tight as hell too, I'd been asking him about hearing some of his stuff, he said I'd have to find that shit on Ebay...someone Youtubbed it.

 I was so damn impressed It was like discovering an old Melvins Album for the first time or something, it felt so familiar yet fresh and unique...I really enjoyed it. 

(Pretty sure Shiny Beast is a Captain beefheart Reference)

that's why we need to petition the guy to change the youtube video title. it doesn't fit the tone of the story at all. I cringe every time I see it  #-o

Yeah, I strongly do NOT agree with the way the title spins it.

I'll hang my own dirty laundry out in public, thanks.  :buzz:

It's pretty cool they're hanging out with Jon Spencer these days, must be pretty cool to swap stories.

Personally I'd love to see them in the Netherlands, Jules are you going?

I had to learn That Foo fighters song "Hero" or whatever...There's a few cool Drum lines in it...but the more I played it out on Drums the more and more I realized it's pretty much the Drum line from Night goat sped up a little with a few different accents and some variations and a non-offensive bass line... a bit understandably.

 this may be something more subconsciously recognized once you try to play it, I wonder if they even knew it while they were writing it. I doubt any of the fans would notice.

Dale is a big inspiration to all drummers, I mean come on!

He does exactly what he needs to do, exactly when he needs to do it.

And he's even a great singer and guitar player first and foremost, He's Just such a cool guy.

Anyway Dave seems like a good guy too, he's doing his best for himself.

It's a bit silly to have an opinion on him as a person unless you know him. Foo fighters are pretty good...Those songs are definitely still stuck in my head from when I was a kid in the 90's. There's so much Kurt Cobain songwriting in there it's hard to know where the line is drawn between where Nirvana Stopped and Foo Fighters started sometimes. A lot of musical rudiments are general, especially when it comes to Catchy tunes.


When you're a Melvins freak it Just gets stuck *in* there somewhere and ultimately there's nothing wrong with that...it Just means it's good music.

Dave was a big Melvins fan, he rates them very highly and I'm sure nothing would sway that opinion even despite the years of distance between them.

It's tit for tat IMO. I would have done the same thing ditching Dave, sorry man...It's hard to be left out by your friends...honestly, you gotta be reminded how it feels. You don't get over that shit so easy once the damage has been done. ESPECIALLY if you helped them out and they never return in kind and you're sort of left confused.

I've had similar experiences, and it fucks with your pride a little bit.

When I first heard night goat I was Just blown away as a kid..I showed it to my friend when we were first learning to play guitar and he didn't like it because he said it was too repetitious. I think he missed the point, to me it Just opened up a mean dark world of heavy fuckin' Rock and roll with that pounding intro, straight into the drop. What a simple little bass lick but it's so effective that way...I don't know where it came from but could it have de-evolved from 80's Thrash metal? I don't know..it's a stand alone Riff, over and over...It's so hellish and cruel.

Speed it up and it would become a good hair-metal sort of thing with like those high pitched YEeaaaaaaaa-AAA-aaAAAAaaaoooww!!! screams in there for good measure...Take anything from Oven and speed it up a little bit and it's total Thrash metal, It's what they are NOT playing that makes it so out of whack. How they got it so tight is beyond me, no band I know can do something so mischievous.

Think of the Riff from boris and play it as if it was like a slayer guitar line at 90MPH and you'll be like WOAH! he's right!!! It chugs along like any general heavy metal does. The creative break through was in mutating it and going slow.  Another thing about how Buzz maybe Came up with the Open tuning in Boris may have stemmed from utter frustration during a song writing session where maybe his guitar wasn't holding tune and he got pissed off and Just Dropped the damn string down in utter disgust. Fuck you guitar!!! And it caught on, someone realized god damn now THAT is a sound!!!

I mean, His Les Paul was vintage when he bought it right? maybe it was right around when he first got it that it was giving him some problems, Guitars can be temperamental things when the are in the hands of a new owner...and the owner himself may be equally temperamental from time to time, especially doing the best they can with what they got.




Night goat...It's like the Melvins version of Louie Louie.

It's not always easy being a Canadian Melvins fan.

I'm glad they make an effort to come here and play for us.

Maybe next time someone will get out of their igloo and hitch up their dogsled and send me some smoke signals so I get the memo next time they stop in and play a Gig here.

I'm tired of being left out in the fuckin' cold.

 I'm lousy at goodbyes...I'm lousy at reviews.

Do not worry about me, I'm pretty much indestructible, all weather too.

I might never get to heaven but some guardian angel is always watching over me.  O:)

Looking back in my time, I've been through worse. Far away worse things.

Never worry. Fear is human, but by some inexplicable divinity there's a reward for the faith in dumb miracles.

Keep me in your heart and mind, and I will be fine.

Thank you sincerely, for your concern.  8-[

There is also a Jon Spencer Hits Patch for your Jacket!!! Why I only bought *one* was a stupid stupid move.  #-o



It's cool, I already put it on this black leather 1980's Cafe Racer Jacket from a thrift store, it looks like Black Sabbath Master of Reality cover kinda, I want to know where that Font style was inspired from...it's like something borrowed out of a hippies sketch book.

There's a shop in town that sells a few artsy hip things, one of the button pins I bought when I got home was a Frank Kozik pin...it was Yellow with a banana smoking a cigarette. It's next to the patch to remind me of the time I met this sexy stud named Glen at the Detroit show. It really ties the whole thing together.  :P

I'll try and get a photo tomorrow, I Just wrote a review of the show in the Melvins show Review section so I'm too tired.

My tinnitus is really bad tonight and there's a raging thunder storm going on right now outside.
