Melvins Discussion / Re: The Colossus of Destiny: A Melvins Tale
« on: January 10, 2018, 04:23:17 PM »
I missed the pledge funding, and would love to buy some physical manifestation of it that includes a CD with the live recordings of it because I collect CDs still (I'm sure plenty here would prefer vinyl).

Considering getting the 2 disc DVD here, though:

[edited to remove obvious failure to google]

 I would say just go with the 2 DVD set. It's worth it, and the concert and extras on Disc 2 are great. I pledged enough to get the 2-DVD set with the Walsby tee. Happy with the donation/purchase. That sucks for those who chipped in for the uber-deluxe set, hoping to have it by now.

What’s all included?

My guess? Handmade CD of Love/Death with new/alt Mackie art -  with either some stickers, a poster, or a shirt thrown it. Nothing to get too excited about, unless you need to have all those home-made sleeves that Buzz & Mackie roll out on the weekends.
 I love the fact that they put the effort into this stuff for those who want it, but it's not for me.

Not Revolve, but Sub Pop has Mike & The Melvins shirts slashed down to 10 bucks.


Mike & The Melvins black shirts marked down to $10. I threw it in the cart and ordered with the new METZ - "Strange Peace" CD.

The fact that there's a Laughing Hyenas track on there gives me hope that the band's whole catalog will be re-issued in the near future. One can hope, remastered or not. I have everything on CD except the Crawl EP. All acquired thru amazon/ebay sellers, nothing crazy over $25 a piece. Awhile ago I emailed T&G asking about the chances of Laughing Hyenas being back in print. Got no response. Would buy everything again on vinyl in an instant.

 Cool list. The Trower choice sort of surprised me. Obviously Buzz has good taste in music & knows his shit, but I didn't expect that mention. Bridge Of Sighs is an awesome song/album, the only one you really need. Saw the man live once, back in '00. He still had it then, and I'm sure does today. I recently found a good live album of his, from like a year or so before Bridge Of Sighs, "Trower Live!" also on Chrysalis.

Nice props to Shep, Hazel, & Hidalgo too. 8)

One has to ask: Did someone go back to the original tapes and remaster this specifically now for vinyl, or is it just going to be a needle-drop/dupe of the '99 Ipecac CD reissue? I have a suspicion that it's not a real analog tape to vinyl release. There will likely be no difference in sound quality from CD to vinyl on this. Melvins know they have a slew of fans that are vinyl geeks, & we're all gonna buy it regardless. :lol: I hope the same quality control that went into the Boner reissues happens with GPT.

GPT release scheduled for November.  Many variants to be available. Collector nerds will have to pay.

 Standard release thru Ipecac? I'll have one. Not interested in variant art $100 AmRep version.

Melvins Discussion / Re: Dale Interview on
« on: October 01, 2017, 05:48:34 PM »
Great read! I have to check out this McCartney video from '80 now. That Beefheart video that Dale references is bad-ass, I have the DVD. It's a true gem. Not to be a total geek but have to point out that it's not Drumbo in that video he mentions. That's Artie Tripp(aka Ed Marimba) w/ the panties on his head. He really rocks out on a basic kit there, after mostly playing marimba on Lick My Decals, and w/ the Mothers on Uncle Meat. That video is the Clear Spot '72 album lineup w/ Roy Estrada on bass & the rare 3-guitar line of Zoot Horn Rollo, Elliot Ingber, & Rockette Morton. There is a great video from a year earlier called Tubeworks Detroit w/ Drumbo that is very cool too. He uses a pair of congas as part of his set, sort of like primitive octo-bans.

H.A.T. would be amazing..

...As would individual releases from the Trilogy

Hope that these are in the pipeline

H.A.T. was issued on vinyl once circa 2003, as individual 7-inchers, each with an awesome b-side. I've been meaning to bust them all out for a spin. Should do that soon. I doubt they'd reissue those, or Trilogy separated.
 A deluxe H.A.T. CD/DVD box would be my dream Melvins reissue though - the album & b-sides, a Kurt Schlegel mixed live set, plus a filmed show if there's anything from '02 pro-shot sitting around.

 The Ipecac albums that still need a proper vinyl release are:
 26 Songs (just exclude the "Hugh" field recording)
Houdini Live '05
(Fantomelvins) - Millenium Monsterwork
Everybody Loves Sausages
Tres Cabrones

Melvins as a three-piece with Steve, is a force live and is also a charismatic, intelligent and friendly fella. I believe those three has little or nor friction on tour, just good fun.
It will be interesting to see what happens when Off! decide to tour more. I think they are currently writing a new record. Perhaps Pinkus will take over on bass for a while if they don't do a Melvins and Off! tour.

I would absolutely loooove a Melvins/OFF tour. I wish I had flown out to those Redd Kross/OFF/Melvins shows for new years.

Even better- how about Melvins and OFF recording together! With the Melvins productivity and willingness to collaborate, it's a real possibility.
I highly doubt OFF! would do a whole tour w/ Melvins. A few dates somewhere on the west coast, or meet up in the east? - yes. A 20+ date run of shows with all the grind of travelling? - no. Keith has stated recently in his great autobio "My Damage" that he's not into extensive touring, it's too hard with being diabetic. OFF! tours have never been long runs besides. I'm glad we get what we get with Keith. Saw OFF! twice, with both drummers. 8)

 Wow, I'm a longtime Who fan, and I think Odds & Sods is a snoozefest.  Basically a quickly thrown together album of leftovers to please the record company at the time between Quadrophenia & By Numbers. It's just too all over the place, stuff ranging from the early days to songs that weren't good enough for Who's Next. A few of the songs are great, some are easily filler. That was the first Who album I owned, on 8-track no less. I recently traded in my vinyl of it, because it just collected dust.

Live @ Leeds on vinyl and the expanded version on CD is the only Who I really need along with the Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy set.

2.  Where was Dave (I'm in every documentary) Grohl???  I was disappointed.    :(

 Well, knowing he hasn't been involved with anything Melvins since that last tour w/ Nirvana, it's no shocker. Plus did you hear Buzz's Grohl story from the acoustic tour? :lol:  I was more suprised that any of the Tool & Isis dudes & Hank3 weren't involved. Claypool couldn't have been too hard to reach either, doubt he would have said no and am sure he would have had some funny road stories.

I'm just patiently waiting for the three disc version  :-"
What exactly does this 3rd disc consist of again? Any chance it will be sold separately at a later date for those who originally went with the 2 disc version?

Just sending out an alert of a bad ebay seller by the name of vinyl_asylum.  From San Diego area, has made about 85,000 sells. I did a last second bid and won Laughing Hyenas - Life Of Crime/You Can't Pray A Lie CD. Got it for $15.50, stated it was in VG condition. It was totally trashed, last half of the CD had a constant click/pop all through it. Made a CD-R copy, sometimes a copy of a scuffed CD comes out fine. Made no difference. Sent it back and a month later ebay just refunded me fully, after this dick wouldn't respond. Douchebag just listed the "Crawl" CD EP the other day too. Stayed away this time. Touch & Go really needs to reissue the Laughing Hyenas catalog.
