Melvins Discussion / Re: MELVINS - WORKING WITH GOD (NEW ALBUM!!!!!!!)

I don't quite understand the foldout art in the CD. Why five images of the explosion? If it were time lapse I'd totally get it. But they seem identical.

I picked up on a few more things I really like about this record. The tone of the lead riff in "Brian" is really hot. I don't know if we've heard that since the Kevin years.

I also like how in "Caddy Daddy" and "Brian" you've got the words "goon" and "motherfucker" used really percussively with either pitch effects or just guttural delivery.

I like the backwards intro to "Good Night." I feel really lucky as a fan.

Really cool record. I'm coming around to the covers. The originals are all awesome.

Even though they both keep slipping out that Dillard can't do the complex time stuff, I think the groove on "Negative No No" is plenty tricky.

"Boy Mike" is my favorite so far. Sounds like half Basses Loaded half Maggot.

This version of "Hot Fish" sounds great. I'll have to see if I go back to that Flipper EP how they compare in the long run.

Great find on the iTunes comments, thanks!

"Shark Like Overbite" I thought sounded fantastic.

There's tons of local in-family options. Could be Redd Kross or Off or Side Eyes. O from Fluf occasionally posts Instagram of Melvins in their rehearsal space or studio, so it's conceivable his current group might do it. Maybe Mudhoney are in town. Maybe Anna Waronker has been working on something. Maybe they'll have Toshi noodle for ten minutes. Maybe Adam Jones and Buzz will make noise. I'd be interested in all of these, actually.

Melvins Discussion / The 'right' wrong song titles
« on: February 20, 2021, 11:53:11 PM »
I was re-watching the Valentine's stream today. And I have this nagging feeling that the 'obvious' song titles that stick with me might be the same for others. How do you feel?

Obviously on Egg Nog there's four, but these two stand out to me:
"Bastards" ("Charmicarmicat")
"Pigs Don't Let It" ("Antitoxidote")

Then for me it's always these two:
"Hand It Over" ("National Hamster")
"You Should Have Known" ("Billy Fish")

Like if I were talking to some stranger about the Melvins and they said their favorite song played live was "Hand It Over" I wouldn't even register they'd made a mistake. Anyone else?

Other candidates:
"V.O.T.O.C.I." ("Foaming")
"Ordinary, Ordinary" ("Mary Lady Bobby Kins")

Finally got my copy (Amazon). It's really good. I probably like it more than its predecessor.

I dig the Piso Mojado tracks a LOT. I also love "Untrue Crime" and  "I Can't Help You There."

There's a few bits of dissonance and silly noise that I may have to let grow on me. But overall a solid batch of songs performed and recorded well.

Much if the bass on this record is really wobbly. I think I like it but it also might be distracting.

Queen, Billy Fish, It's Shoved, Let It All Be, Roman Birddog/Hung Bunny. Well worth it. If you were on the fence, just buy the stream for $5

"Shock Me" and "My War" and "Tattooed Love Boys" and both Sabbath tunes are all recent covers that kick ass. I would have no problem with these being album cuts. When I can either hear the Melvins "take" on a great song (vs just a tribute) or when I can hear the Melvins DNA in a song, I think it's album worthy. There is no too much or too little.

Still excited for this record. Even if there's only two more tunes in the vein of "Caddy Daddy" and "Bouncing Rick" and the rest is weirdness, it will be a great return to form. I also really hope they play at least one of these songs in the veep streams.

There's a tier of Melvins covers by which I judge all the others. Green Manalishi, Sacrifice, Lexicon Devil, Youth of America, Jerkin Krokus.

The next tier has most of Sausages, HAT B Sides, PAT, Crybaby, Kiss covers, Flipper covers, etc.

Then there's this one and a few other classic rock and novelty tunes that really don't do much for me. Oh well.

Cool that all three were able to use favorite albums/songs to tell if someone's a good fit.

And yet they've put out two solo albums, four or five collab EPs, a solo EP, a live concert stream, and some truly killer re-releases and merch. We are a lucky bunch.
