Melvins Discussion / About the Melvins art direction lately...
« on: October 19, 2015, 11:31:05 AM »
Am I the only one who isn't super impressed by the visual side of the Melvins lately?

Narrowing it down to studio album covers, the last cover I really liked was Electroretard, and I've never been a huge fan of Mackie's style but the last cover she designed that wasn't "meh" to me were the individual covers for the trilogy.

CoD, HAT, Senile Animal, Nude With Boots, Bride, Sausage, Tres Cabrones, and Hold It In are all really boring album covers in my opinion, and I wouldn't buy any of them if I didn't know who the Melvins were.
I like a lot of the singles and the idea of repeating the same artwork but with slight variations, and some of the other artwork and even art on the inside of the albums are cool, but when it comes down to it I really don't like Melvins album covers lately. Obviously a huge part of liking a band and collecting their output is enjoying the artwork, but it has come to a point where I don't collect much Melvins stuff because the (most, certainly not all) of Mackie's artwork isn't interesting to me. One band I collect a lot of stuff from is Alien Sex Fiend because I really like the art and enjoy looking at it while I listen. But I don't feel like sitting around looking at a picture of some heads in some spoons.

I understand that the Melvins have never had album covers that directly reflect the music. Like you'd never guess Bullhead (one of my absolute favourite album covers) would be as sludgey as it is, but I'm bored by recent artwork and was just wondering if any other fans feel the same way. It just feels formulaic at this point; I've had enough typography and animals :lol:

Melvins Discussion / Best Buzzo Vocal?
« on: October 10, 2015, 06:46:47 PM »
What song or live performance do you think shows Buzzo at the top of his vocal game? Has he gotten better or worse over the years? What album do you think has his best singing altogether? Discuss!!!

I'm doing a project for school (leave it to me to include the Melvins whenever I can) and I need a decent-quality image of the full Electroretard album cover image without "Electroretard" on it.

all I could find was this:


Thanks for the help c:

Melvins Discussion / Melvins Cage Match #2

who's gonna start the next cage match?
You are.
may I suggest we jump to H and pair up Hog Leg v.s. Hag Me?
That's fine, if you're a sadist that likes totally uneven competition.  =;

I definitely am a sadist  :twisted:
I suspect this match will be as uneven as the last..

Melvins Discussion / Melvins Covers

I thought it would be good to start a thread of other bands/groups/people covering Melvins songs.
I plan to do some Melvins covers on my bass so I'll post them when I'm done :)
