Melvins Discussion / Need my Melvins interview!
« on: April 06, 2007, 07:37:30 AM »
Does anyone remember that I did an interview with Buzz like a year ago that I posted on my fanzine?
Well, I don't have it anymore and since we've quit Goregeous Magazine I can't go to the site and get it.. did someone by any chance save it?

Melvins Show Reviews / April 5th KB - Malm
« on: April 06, 2007, 07:28:22 AM »
Holy fucking hell in the name of fuck!
For those of you who have been here fo a while, if you remember me, you probably remember me as "that swedish guy who always spams about his own band AND is complaining about the Melvins never playing his shit country"

Well, it was FINALLY time for the Melvins of mass destruction to come visit Sweden and guess what... I was there.

So, I had some huge expectations on this one to say the least. Melvins have been my favourite band now for about 8 years and this was truly a wet dream coming true. I was a little worried they'd play many of the Senile Animal songs (since I'm having a hard time appreciating it) but to my amazement they played almost every single one... and I LOVED it. I can't believe they're SO much better live! The duo-drumming comes in real handy live, even more than on record I'd say and just as someone said in the Stockholm thread, it's a lot cooler with some cool drumming (and for your information it was insanely well synchronized) than just some guitar feedback bullshit. Anyway, they did throw in some old classics as well; Sky Pup, Oven, Dwight Fry, Set Me Straight, The Bit, Let It All Be among others. I was perfectly satisfied when they were done even though I didn't get to hear some of the ones that I hoped for (Honey Bucket, Manky, Anaconda, Lovely Butterflies for example). The only real dissappointment was the fact that they only played for little over an hour. But hey, I'm not gonna complain, I'd be happy with just five minutes.

After the show me and my buddy sat down and had some beers and tried to understand what we've just experienced... I still don't get it. Seeing the Melvins live isn't reality to me. When it was time to go home we figured we might as well try to get a talk with the band... We went back where the tour bus stood and talked with the roadies... We kindly asked if there was any chance we could get a glimpse of our heros and one of them responded "I''ve known Buzz since he was 12, he won't be coming down to talk to you guys"... FUCK! What kind of rockstar diva behaviour is that!? We didn't give up though. We stood there like two morons and waited and after a while Dale came out... We had a nice chat and got some autographs and stuff. Then he went back up backstage only to return a few moments later saying "you guys wanna come up?" ....... :shock: HELL YEAH WE DO!!!! I couldn't believe it.. 1 hour ago I was paralyzed in front of the stage and just enjoyed this unreal moment and now we were about to enter the backstage area and talk to all of them.... We followed Dale in and there they all were.. Buzz, Dale, Cody and Jared... We felt like idiots standing there and just watching them... I't's never been so exciting watching someone (Buzz) drink orange juice. And I was surprised how friendly they were. They where talking and joking and they gave us autographs and seemed to actually enjoy having us there. After 10 minutes of us telling them how grateful we were and how good the show was we said thank you and went out. I STILL CAN''T BELIEVE WE DID IT!!!! It was amazing... That's my story. I hope you enjoyed reading and I hope I didn't ramble too much...

I realize you americans who've seen them a couple of times might think it's nothing special and all that and that I'm a complete dork who are this excited about all this. But I'm telling you this is an unreal experience to me and I've never been happier in my whole life..  Feels like the pieces missing is now in place. Really means a lot to me.. If someone here haven't seen them and ever gets the chance to; GO SEE THEM!!!!

Melvins Discussion / New interview with Buzz
« on: May 12, 2006, 02:40:08 AM »
Yup, it will be online on my webzine very soon!

I did the interview in a way so that it's interesting for as many people as possible.. Which means some of you might think it's a little shallow but you should check it out!

He didn't seem too happy about some of the questions I had and the answers were kinda short.. Still a great experience  :)

I'll have it online as soon as I possibly can. We're having a busy time this month mainly because my companjon Martin is the new singer of the legendary Swedish death metal band Deranged.. We're heading for a German tour in a week (I'm the roadie).

Probably I'll have it online by this weekend, I'll let you all know.

« on: September 13, 2004, 05:41:31 AM »
Why!?

They did tour Europe in 91 and 94 (probably more) why don't they do it anymore? I don't think they did Sweden though.
