Melvins Discussion / Re: The Melvins in 2020...

I haven't gotten my Buffalo tik refund, but I'm not too worried about it yet. Basically I paid cash at After Dark Presents box office, and as of now their phones go to voicemail. They deal w/ E-Tix and are saying contact them for online order refunds. I'm not driving downtown to knock on their door for $20. I'm hoping later in the year they "reopen" and I can get the cash back. Same goes w/ tix for The Sword, and Uncle Acid from same place.

 Got my refunds on the way for the two priciest tix I bought in March - paypal refund from Eventbrite for Primus - Tribute To Kings, and I got a check coming in the mail for King Crimson/Zappa band. Both of those have set dates for 2021, but I opted on refund. If things get "normal" by then, I'd buy again, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Could have ordered this weekend, but opted out. $30 for a 10" EP where the sound quality is basically a grade B soundboard? No thanks. I didn't buy the Ipecac P.A.T. on 10" either which is the same price, and stretched to a double. Love that FC set in all it's bootleg-ish glory, but I'm fine w/ the original CD.
 Would I pay $10 for a standard poster print of the new art? Yes.

Great disc, got it yesterday. They really jam out on the awesome Neil Young deep cut, Drive Back. I wouldn't mind a whole album of Melvins/Mudhoney.

If the LPs are already pressed and packaged and in "storage", I'd bet they're sitting in boxes in an uncontrolled environment, just in time for summer. Buyer beware! :lol:

Has Buzz recently commented on why the 3 month delay on the full length release? Yeah, I know Covid shit, plant closings, etc. Who the fuck makes the CDs for Ipecac? Are other Ipecac releases getting this long a delay? Maybe they need a better manufacturer. Haze is still pumping out AmRep CDs. Zappa Records announced a new live 4-CD 1970 set last month that's out in a few weeks through Universal.

It's likely the albums were manufactured ages ago and they're sitting on them during the covid-19 thing because Buzz/Dunn can't tour during it and putting out an album without any touring to promote it isn't the greatest idea.

If that's so, then that's a bad business strategy. Put the fucking thing out and sell some units. Tour when you can, and if the album has been selling well, people will turn out to see it live.  A band like Clutch puts out an album and there's literally a 1-2 yr cycle of touring with breaks before the next album comes out.

Drive Back, the Neil Young/Crazy Horse song?! Cool. Hepa/Titus also covered it on the Touched By God CD which is still available @ shoxop.

 I've enjoyed the recent Melvins cheapy CDs, just not so much on Shitkid though.

Buzzo show in Albany, NY still not canceled WTF?
Ticketmaster won't refund the money until its officially Canceled.

Anyone have any idea how to get this made official?

We all know that the tour isn't happening.

I'd email the promoter and find out. That's kind of fucked, probably a ticketbastard thing. Buffalo clearly got cancelled. Now I gotta email the promoter and see if they'll paypal me a refund, since I paid cash @ their box office which is likely closed for awhile.

Anyone know why the artwork isn't a version of the original?

Even made a comment about it in the listing...

What about Shitstorm? Is it the full version, or shortened as on the Ipecac Bulls & Bees two-fer CD. I'd think it would have to be the unedited.

I'm holding the original cd in a pic with Buzz from my first Melvins show. He assured me they were gonna repress it soon. That was the (a)SA tour.

 I grabbed one on the 2003 Geek Show tour, I think they were under $10 at the table. This was a few years before Haze & then Walsby were working merch. I found another orig CD also cheap at a used shop a few yrs ago. I don't think the new art comes close to touching the original Kozik artwork. The Ipecac re-hash w/ Bulls & Bees is not even worth mentioning either. The Mansruin version might be my all-time favorite Melvins artwork job for CD. Why don't they just re-use it? Would they have to pay Kozik again? I guess it's fine that way, keeps the originals more collectible.

Finally got notification for Buffalo show cancelled from promoter - After Dark Presents. Thank you Buzz for just cancelling, instead of holding fans money for what would be a year or more..
 Not too thrilled with Primus, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, and The Sword for all not cancelling and putting a "postponed TBA" on their sales. Just lame. Not too worried about when I get refunded on those -  Primus was like $50, Sword & Uncle Acid were $25 each.
 My big tik purchase was King Crimson w/ The Zappa Band which was $100. I have the option of getting a refund or sitting on the ticket until next summer, and keeping the same reserved seat. Haven't decided what I'll do on that one.

Meh...another one missed. I own the CD, so this would have been a nice addition.

That said, at this point, I am getting so tired of this band playing the limited editions game. Always sold out in an hour on the Amprep site and you get to watch them being flipped within days here or on Discogs.

Do they not realise that whilst this is a great money maker for them, it's a bit of a disservice to fans who have supported them for years?

You should call and complain to their manager.

They are doing a Factory Edition of this, so you will still be able to own it on vinyl. That is what I am waiting for myself.

 Yep, exactly. Remain calm. :) I was able to grab a factory edition Honky vinyl from Shoxop no problem. Probably will get this one too if it's under $30.

holy shit, i am beyond psyched for this reissue- still have the og cd

I wonder what it took to get the rights to this recording.  I do not believe it was originally owned by MELVINS.   my guess it was somewhere's in the neighborhood of a buck, two fifty.

 I have the orig CD too. It was on AmRep, so there are no legal issues. Maybe you're thinking of Your Choice Live Series(Germany '91)?

I was lucky enough to get them all when they came out, but would LOVE a repackaging/reissue of all that material. That album fucking RULES, I love it so much. wish they would throw a track in here and there live once in a while. Plus, Buzz knows everyone on this board will buy all his limited shit anyway, so what's the hold up?!?

 H.A.T. is my favorite Melvins album period. Part of the problem with that album is that it's so phenomenal and unique to that lineup w/ Rutmanis, that a lot of the songs might sound stupid now w/ a different bassist. I like Steve & Pinkus just fine, but honestly most of those songs would be supbar if Melvins played em today w/out Kevin.
