Melvins Discussion / Re: Honky vinyl re-release

Can anyone comment on the sound quality of the vinyl? I keep seeing gripes about it being mastered from the cd.

I'm going to go ahead and say the original pressing wasn't spectacular to begin, because it's a longer cut...If I get a chance to get the new LP I'll compare, it might be like lifting a veil off the original pressing.

The CD and Vinyl were very different sounding for sure.

The band Buzzov*en is not named after Buzz and the song Oven from Ozma:
It is.
One more question: what does the name Buzzov*en mean, anyway? I read two explanations: (1) it was a melding of "buzzed often"; (2) it means "buzz oven," like a cooker.
It's two words I put together that I thought sounded like a cool name for a band. No deep meaning.
Kirk (or whoever answered that question) was lying.

I FUCKIN' KNEW IT!!!!  :lol: :lol: :lol:

How could it NOT be a Melvins Reference? Buzz Oven, thats Awesome, you should look up Buzzoven in the dictionary.  :buzz: :buzz: :buzz: :buzz:

I've been thinking about it for a while now, probably around a year, maybe longer. Just trying to figure out how they've evolved over the years and it's not about distortion or heaviness. It seems that in the past, a lot of the Melvin's essential DNA, what makes them Melvins is is that they presented themselves with the sideshow bob appearance, the muumuu, the gardening gloves, the ridiculous lyrics, the sense of humour. BUT. At the same time their music was totally opposite, it was nasty, heavy, punishing, savage, sharp or sludgy or disturbing. They worked in unison, two almost ironic juxtapositions if you will. This lasted for ages. 

From Dadaism nonsensical lyrics of Ozma mixed with brutal delivery. The quite clean precises delivery of the bootlicker opposed by a sinister tone and sharp delivery of all those songs. loose laid back feel on Honky while strongly opposed by a disturbing ambience throughout. The more you look at it the more it appears, the stark contrast they've always maintained.

However I could never place my finger on why but only recently I think it's because the newer albums don't have this.
It seems these days the ridiculousness of the Melvin s themselves has actually translated across into the music and to me, it just doesn't work as well.  they play a straight game these days.

nstead of the odd contradiction of the seriousness of their music mixed in with their sense of humour...these days it's crept across so much so that the contradiction is lost and all that is sometimes left is just that. 99 Bottles, or some of the covers.

It's not about heavy guitars or Melvins not making Lysol anymore. It's more the fact that that I think they've lost that essential ingredient which made Melvins the Melvins. It's not a diss, it's not a criticism but it's definitely the feeling I get when I hear their modern records to those of 15+ years ago.

There are some nasty/solid bits in this PAT album and the contractitions are stil there, but there are times where it just goes straight up and misses out on thisjuxtaposition d the'yve had for so many years. dont abnd me again i'm actually half drunk lol and typed this out in one go
I couldn't put my finger on it.

Jimmy Shit finger? featuring Jeff Stinkus?  :-s

I think someone mentioned this once a LOONNNNGG time ago but I can't remember what thread or who.

 I should have checked this out ages ago. This is a pretty cool sounding record. wow.

I've been checking back into the early Thrones stuff lately...I missed the boat on a lot of that stuff back when I was first really getting into Melvins.

the A-side label of the original indicates that 'air breather' is splitted. all songs are anyways listed on the A-side label only.

Man, I gotta go check again, are you talking about the back cover?

Air breather is listed as not being split up on sides A and B on the original LP either, It might be split, it just wouldn't fit otherwise unless they split the Album into a double LP playing at 45RPM.

Looks like they are not splitting up air breather like they did on the original.

I'll have to get a copy and compare the cut to the original press.

Nice set.
