they do both the same part, sounds heavier though. as for the other songs and  from the videos i've seen so far, looks like Steven is the lead bass and Pinkus the rythm. like having two guitarists in the band. to be honest Steven does both of them sometime, being way more skilled and used to play with Buzz and Dale
I thought it was probably something like that. I still can't really tell but i think that's probably more to do with the recordings. Im waiting for some pro-footage from the tour to appear!!

i'm pumped to see Steven add some fx, lead parts, embellishments, etc.
Don't forget to add dancing and posing to his list of embellishments.

Steven is great, there i said it!
Arrest this man!!

sounds great with double bass
I still can't really distinguish the two basses from one another. Although i guess there is a heavier, more substantial bass presence in the song with the two.

I really wish they would play the 2nd half of that tune live tho ... 2nd half is so good ... wonder why they never have?
I've heard the live renditions of 'Let It All Be' so many times that i always forget there actually IS a second half! Then i listen to The Bootlicker after a while and for a moment think to myself "what is this?".

i bet it's a totally different song that they never named (or never gave the name out to) and just tacked it on
Never thought of that before. You could well be right too. I think quite a few Melvins songs sound like two different pieces combined together.

so does anybody know if this is simply a repress of the LOVE disc from the ipecac set, or is this soundtrack any different?
I remember Buzz saying something about the soundtrack and the album being different. But he explained it in such a confusing way that i don't know whether it really is or not, and how exactly in which way it is.

Our resident photographer extraordinaire Tinnitus has a new set of Melvins photos up on his site. Love the black and white shots.

Also unsure about Mike and The Melvins - Three Men And A Baby. Is this a fully qualified album or rather a way late release of an album that never happened?
Actually yes, that is a tricky one. Tricky in the sense that it wasn't ALL old material. The band said 80% of the record was done but they added a few bits and did the vocals at the time it was released. So it is this strange concoction of old and new together.

Basses Loaded will always be a compilation album to me, considering that half the tracks were released on singles prior and the band is not a cohesive unit throughout.
I do wonder how "formed" Basses Loaded was at the time they released the 'Beer Hippy' and 'War Pussy' EP's. Whether the album was ready to go and they simply put out 2/3's of the record in this way first or later on arranged it into a full length album.

In that rig rundown video above i wonder why he says he will play the red guitar on that night and the blue the night after. Why could that be??? Any ideas or just to keep things looking different? I never knew that blue guitar of his was part wood either. You can't tell!! Also after Buzz mentioned his height, i wish we knew how tall he is.

Not too surprising i guess since Patton has worked with them and they are on Ipecac.

Another issue i have with things of this nature is how bands (or labels) classify releases as albums or EP's. It is funny to me that sometimes you get a band that usually put out records an hour long but then offer up a 30 minute release and call it an EP. To me that's still an album. Just a shorter album. So for Melvins i still see Eggnog as sort of an album. Plus, along similar lines, it irritates me when Lysol is considered an EP by some just because it has less tracks.

This is something i always want clarified when it gets mentioned in magazines or interviews. The fact that the band don't know themselves i think is telling. So really it doesn't matter too much - i just think of them as "releases" rather than records. For various reasons, with a band like Melvins it is actually pretty difficult truly to say what is an album or not. I will say that i don't really see Chicken Switch as a Melvins album. That one in particular i have a hard time accepting. Playing devils advocate here, could 'A Walk With Love & Death' be considered TWO albums?!?

For me, the only ones that could be considered tricky to classify by fans (for different reasons) are these below....

10 Songs / 26 Songs
Your Choice Live Series
King Buzzo
Dale Crover
Joe Preston
Singles 1-12
Alive At The Fucker Club
Colossus Of Destiny
Millennium Monsterwork 2000
Never Breathe What You Can't See
Mangled Demos From 1983
Sieg Howdy!
Houdini Live: A Live History Of Gluttony And Lust
Chicken Switch
Sugar Daddy Live
The Bulls & The Bees

there was no tour for that one
I don't think that should be a factor whatsoever.

Colossus of Destiny an album and their best one at that where as it's not a studio album but a live album.
Normally i would agree and say it is a live album, but the fact that it is previously unreleased material and the emphasis by the band that it IS an album makes me view it like that. Same goes for the Houdini Live record. It was recorded live but you can't tell it is. It's also one of their very best releases too!

Why does the studio/live aspect carry that much weight?
I agree. I think it doesn't really matter much. I still think of 'Kick Out The Jams' by MC5 as a "proper" album.

Im liking it, although i am a bit confused about this one. Let me see if i've got this straight - the vinyl is JUST the Love side? Plus (based on what Buzz said last year) the movie soundtrack is going to be a shorter, or a condensed version, of Love?

Mr McDonald giving us his best sleazy look there!

Also, i wonder if Pinkus has more tattoo's than any other Melvins bassist as ever had?
