Melvins Discussion / Re: Pinkus Abortion Technician
« on: April 22, 2018, 02:38:40 PM »
This is the most SOLID Melvins record for me since Bulls and the Bees. Amazing cover song choices, amazing originals - especially the ear worm that is Don't Forget to Breathe.

I think what a lot of people are experiencing with all of the recent albums is fatigue due to the amount of music that they put out now. It used to be, back in the day, you would get a really solid Melvins album or EP once every 1-2 years. This requires a band to be much more selective about what songs they record and release. The Melvins are now at a point in their career where they can be as prolific as they wanna be - they are putting out new records all of the time. They have a studio and engineer at their disposal whenever they want to record and two labels that will put out everything that they do. They are constantly writing music, recording music and collaborating with new musicians or doing solo projects and side projects (Crystal Fairy). By releasing what seems like everything that they are recording, the quality of the music is not going to be as high all of the time, but the quantity is sure up there. If they were in a position of only being able to put out a record or EP in the numbers of the late eighties and early nineties, we would probably see a much different selection of songs that reach our ears. I am not complaining, and I am certainly not going to tell Buzz and Dale how to run their show, I trust them 100%, but just think that is what is going on here. I would rather have TOO MUCH Melvins music than none at all!

All of that being said - this album kicks my ass.

I also might be full of shit too because Maggot, Bootlicker, Crybaby and COD all came out pretty quickly. What the fuck do I know?

Melvins Discussion / Re: How much do the bassists contribute?

I would guess that Matt, Lorax and Joe contributed very little to writing. Mark D contributed a shit ton to the songs he played on, you can hear how much he contributed based on his album The Silent Treatment.

On The Corner is one fucking mindblowing album. Huge fan of that album. And Tres Hombres. What a good list.

Is there anyone interested in taking a super rare version of the HAZE Endless Residency vinyl box set off my hands? #15/100. As some of you know the first fifteen copies have silkscreened skulls on the blank vinyl sides. This is the last of those.

I should note that I will also include a super rare Wood Mounted Print that Haze sent me as well as a Bonus. Hit me up if you are interested!

Just got an email regarding the 3 disc version, since they feel bad it's actually going to be 4 discs now. Sounds like it will be done shortly.

BONUS BONUS BONUS!!!!!

Melvins Discussion / Re: Worst Melvins song

I think the EGC guitars sound (and play) like shit. I miss the Les Paul days. But it is not my circus and it they are not my monkeys. The King gets to do what he wants. I am sure they use a bunch of different guitars on recordings, being in their studio once I saw a TON of guitar cases and a TON of guitars on racks ready to go.

Melvins Discussion / Re: What's your favourite Melvins cover song?

Would love to see them record Bacon Industry by Karp. When I saw them do it live it blew my brains out.

Man, I should write (or edit) for Ultimate Rock. The Band of Gypsys version of "Stop" was not on the Band of Gypsys album released in 1970, but was released on "Band of Gypsys 2" released in 1986. Also, the Beatles cover should be noted that it is a cover of the Beatles "I Want to Hold Your Hand" but they are using the arrangement made by Billy Gibbons and his pre-ZZ Top band "Moving Sidewalks". It always drives me nuts when things are incorrectly written in music articles because it rewrites and confuses history. But hey - at least they are writing about Melvins!

the value of decay vinyl reissue is available at http://www.season-of-mist.com/

Hoping my pre-order on the pretty blue vinyl arrives in the mail today. I love this album. It's one of the best albums the Melvins ever did.

Buzz and Dale make the Melvins. Either of them goes, no more Melvins.

I agree with Pepsi Mike here. Dale is as important to the sound of the Melvins as Buzz - neither of them are replaceable. Dale pioneered the drumming style that he displayed in full during the first 20 years of their existence (with soooooo many copy cats out there). Buzz would certainly continue to do music because it is his career, as would Dale. They would either create music under their own names or start a new band. I am hoping they both live to be really, really old bastards that continue to make music into their 90s.

Melvins Discussion / Re: What/Where/When was your first Melvins show?

I cannot remember if I ever posted in this thread and I am too lazy to check.

May 16, 1987 Tacoma, WA - Crescent Ballroom w/ D.R.I., Poison Idea, Painted Willie

Buzz, Dale and Matt were all in Star Trek uniforms. Almost 31 years ago.

Was Lukin wearing a red shirt?
:lol: How did you know!

I seem to remember that Buzz was in blue, Matt was in gold and Dale in red? I could be wrong though. That is too deep in the memory banks.

Yeah....not into that artwork at all. But, art is subjective, who the fuck am I to decide what good art is? I just like that someone is making art.
