I don't have any Mark D. solo albums. I do have an account w/ Season Of Mist. When I pre-order the new KEN mode - Loved(out 8/31), I'll likely add some of Mark's CDs to the cart.

These details of the stand-alone Boner reissues probably don't concern the Melvins one bit. Buzz would probably say - if you don't like it, buy our $60 AmRep letterpress version at a show, or else pay $300 for an original pressing on ebay. :lol:

 I don't have a major problem with the K-Tel versions, or the 3rdMan's. I'd give them both an 8/10.

Would love to see a Cheap Trick/Melvins tour! Gonna throw this LP on now:

It's too bad that Cheap Trick doesn't play on their own more, in smaller clubs. Whenever they're touring, it's always some bullshit package tour where they're opening for some shit '80s band, like this summer they're with Poison in the outdoor sheds.
 I recently asked someone I know who has worked on Cheap Trick's road team in the past why they don't headline more in clubs instead of opening on those big megatickets, and he said basically it's guaranteed easy money, on someone else's bill. They don't have to worry about doing the heavy lifting, and there's just no pressure to sell tix. Just go rock out for 45 min every night, get paid well, & go home happy afterwards.

 This Buffalo News piece sums it up:

 I saw them once, opening for ZZ Top summer '97 on Father's Day. Bought my Dad a tik, he drove, was an epic night.

Would have loved to hear that sound check. BTW, who is running the board this tour?
A guy named John H.
Kurt Schlegel was last seen.. 2009? I'm not sure.
Whatever happened to Roadbull? Tim Moss?

Kurt was definitely w/ Melvins on last summer's tour. He was on the road w/ Jello & GSM the year before that also running the board. I said hi and thanked him for the job well done both times.
Moss? Mike Patton stole him away. :lol:  Moss didn't run sound, just managed stage setup/teardown, and tech'd Buzz's gear. Last time I saw him w/ Melvins was 2008. By 2010, Anthony from Totimoshi/now All Souls was tour manager guy for that one tour.

My man says Adam and Danny from Tool were there

 So the Tool guys(minus Maynard) had these $500 music "clinics" and were in Columbus on the 17th, and then @ The Agora in Cleveland on the 19th. So yep, guess that was Adam. Weird that nobody was bothering him. Didn't see Danny, you can spot him a mile away, dude's like 7'.
 Who the hell pays half a grand to go to a Tool music clinic? :lol:

I didn't notice Jim Fox in or around the club. Must be he was on the guest-list and hung out backstage. I did notice a guy at the Grog who IS the doppelganger of Adam Jones, down to the hair even :shock:. I did a double-take. He was not near backstage pre-show, just in the crowd like everyone else, messing around on his phone, so I assume it wasn't him.

I haven't really kept up on Dub Trio since the album "IV" which came out in 2011. Wow, time flies. How much material have they put out since? (I know I could google/wiki it).
 If I remember right, the fourth album wasn't very dub, and leaned more towards straight-forward metal riffing. I recall reading reviews where old-school dub fans weren't too thrilled w/ it. I will throw that disc on now.

{Edit/addition}. Nope. It was the 3rd album Another Sound Is Dying (on Ipecac) that was their most metal-ish, and not so much dub. 4th album was more a return to their roots, and is quite good. Throwing on ASiD now. I liked it when it came out. Will re-listen to see if it holds up still. That's the one where Patton made a second appearance on the track "No Flag".

Looking forward to this. Have seen them a bunch of times in Buffalo/Rochester between '06 & '11, and once w/ Peeping Tom. Great band, glad they're still going. So the next album will be on Ipecac I assume. They seem to go between ROIR & Ipecac, every other album.

Cool. I'd buy a photo book of this. 8)
 So the Melvins are off tomorrow, Thursday 5/17, in between Toronto which is tonight, and Cleveland Fri 5/18. I wonder if they will do the inevitable that every band does, where you stop and do the stupid tourist thing and take dumb pictures of yourself @ Niagara Falls. Every band does it when they come through, usually gets posted to fb/instagram.
 The Maid Of The Mist is hilarious. You know those liner notes in Ween's - Paintin The Town Brown, where Deaner talks about the shit-mister? That is literally the Maid Of The Mist :P. All of the sewage from Buffalo goes into the Niagara River, only to be sprayed from the Falls all over tourists in the lower section. It was all over the news last year, google it, - giant brown spots (noticeable from helicopters/drones) upstream in the river from the failing water treatment plants. I hope the Melvins don't fall for this shit-trap. :lol:

Yeah, on Los Lobos! Busted out that CD and playing now. This Time & Colossal Head are two of my fave LL albums. They're both from around the time of those two Latin Playboys albums, so they all go good together.

I'm long overdue to get that deluxe CD of Stones - Exile, for the extra material, plus I don't have that one on CD. Have it on a cassette from the '90s that still plays well, and an original vinyl that sounds great.

I don't have much pity for the Detroit or Columbus fans here, because western/central NY gets no Melvins whatsoever in 2018  :merde::x. That's right, the only Melvins show in NY state this year is in New York City, and that might as well be in another time zone as far as I'm concerned. That said I don't mind driving to Cleveland on a Friday. I schedule Vacation days & long weekends around Melvins road trips when necessary.

 Glen: gig is still at the same venue, same price, just no JSBX. Big deal, Spencer will probably be back on his own later in the year for you. Sometimes logistics get in the way and things can't line up between bands after promoters throw it out there prematurely. Weird because I know in Buffalo or Rochester, Melvins would pull in way more people than JSBX. That is a fact, because I've seen the venues Spencer has played around here vs. what Melvins have done. Whatever, Melvins want a Thursday night off between Toronto & Cleveland, yet Mohawk Place has no show booked on 5/17. :?
As for Columbus folks, if you already bought a Melvins tik for 20 something bucks, you will be able to get a refund, as much as that sucks. It's not like you have to hang on to that ticket only to see Melvins moved to an opening slot at a bigger venue. The ticket price w/ Manson headlining has probably now at least doubled, right? I would def sit that one out, having to pay more to see Melvins play a half-hour opening for something as horrible as Manson or the Korn guy.

doesn't get any better(cheaper) than this

Thanks for the heads up!

 I saw that the other day. Seems kind of odd that they'd put this up for sale, basically undercutting the standard Ipecac CD by more than half price. When AmRep recently did a $5 CD of Prick w/ new art, that made sense since they were both thru AmRep and the orig was out of print.
 Had PAT come out on CD first thu Amrep, I'd have grabbed it and not bothered with the Ipecac CD @ $12 or whatever it was. They probably figure most diehard fans who still prefer CDs will want the AmRep version w/ variant art too at that cheap price.
