I'd rather own Spit It Out because Fairey's art there is superb. But I might actually prefer listening to Shit Sandwich as a "Melvins" release. (That's just on the description.)

Melvins Discussion / Re: Buzz + Art show LA 2020

Very cool art event. Packed little brightly lit place. Haze and Mackie signing things and shaking hands at their stations, all three Melvs milling about and greeting fans.

Band climbed up to the tiny loft space at about 7:30 and played five songs I think. Buzz had the acoustic running through an amp. Dale had a small silver/white kit played with hot rods or bundle sticks. Steven had a white electric bass. Sound/mix was pretty good.

They played Onions, a few songs from This Machine, and then Evil New War God. Anyone else who was there might be able to correct me if I'm misremembering.

They had limited letterpress LPs of Buzz 1992 solo EP. $50. They had two sizes of Melvins/Mackie art booklets I want to say they were $35 and $50. There was an adorable silver on white limited letterpress print for $35 I think. An alternate version letterpress of the Shitkid/Melvs CD. And skate decks for $100.

Haze had a good collection of LPs as well.

Most of Mackie framed originals were $425 and Haze framed linocuts were more like $600? If I had the cash and a place to hang it that wasn't around kids or co-workers, I would have gone for the linocut used for Sexy Pee Story. Prurient, yes, but just a fascinating study in shape and design.

Mackie was a doll and autographed items including my skate deck,for which I am very grateful.

What time is thing?

Water Glass fucking rules. Seeing that live with bb was always a highlight. Having spent some youth summers in military camp helps. When you've marched through a humid afternoon with left, right, left and then the patrol leader hits a cadence and goes "double time"... Your legs are aching and you have to strat running in formation or get trampled. So that track makes me nostalgic for a situation that sucked, I guess.

Wow, random bonding over PGx3. I like it as sort of a deconstructed art track, but I wouldn't consider it essential Melvs

I was probably most excited during the thirty seconds between the time I saw Colossus of Destiny on the shelf and the time I put it in the CD player at the store.

Day by day I was probably most excited for Crybaby and then Freak Puke. Both are strong and beloved albums that still somehow managed to cool off my love for the band. It's just hard to keep a streak, even for the winningest teams.

Almost every time I've anticipated an album it's been somewhat of a shock whenever it does finally arrive. I think Maggot and Bootlicker and Bulls & Bees were records I loved immediately after anticipating their release, if we are splitting hairs.

There is no other group which has more records I love. There's no doubt about that. And I think that fact exemplifies the best relationship a fan can have with a group's discography.

Melvins are in a rare category there with, like, Dylan, and Beatles, and maybe Bowie.

Chicken Switch is the only one where I'd skip around. Eye and Merzbow and a handful stick out as worth repeat listening. Matmos? Was Matmos on there? I probably anally detailed my thoughts on this in Melvins Album Discussion.

Fundamentally I'd be into a new Chicken Switch, except the remixers should be limited to only the Melvins noise tracks. There were parts of Jim O'Rourke's remix (I think) that were interesting except that I'm distracted by how much I already know and love EggNog which is such sacred territory for my ears.

Prick has the highest lifetime count of listens, but LOVE is the most frequent since its release. I really love that record. Seeing the film helped me appreciate it somewhat, but I was hooked in 2017.

Seems like an inside joke... That corporate Sub Pop ought to be put to rest, perhaps.

This would make an awesome Melvins collab track. It's got Dale written all over it



It's a big departure from the original:

Melvins Jon Spencer tribute to Rolling Stones maybe?

Boris/Melvins ... What would they do? Some cover of a cover... Plus "Boris." Maybe more old Judas Priest songs. Maybe 9ne original collab track. Or Melvins+Boris cover KISS perhaps?

He got at least one thing materially wrong. I forget what. I don't care enough to grant this video the play count of a rewatch.

It's basically the equivalent of taking a comedian's jokes at face value. This dude needs to a sense of humor. At least enough to tell when someone has their own injokes.

I like their What's in my Bag. I like that stuff. I'd be up for something that's a cool hang with musicians and comics and freaks and friends blowing through. Buzz talking shit in a comfortable environment. Like maybe Buzz at the Driving Range, hitting balls at things that suck (with friends).
