Melvins Discussion / 2018 tour pre show music

Following the release of their new album,  Pinkus Abortion Technician, the Melvins are currently on a 10-week tour across America. To celebrate going on the road, Dale Crover put together a playlist of the music that the band plays in a venue before they go on stage.

* * *

Black Mountain, “Florian Saucer Attack”
Cool song from their last album. This one has a slight ‘new wave’ vibe to it. Like the Cars or Blondie playing space rock.

Cheap Trick, “California Man”
Nice cover of a song originally done by the Move. Neither band is from California

Los Lobos, “Viking”
Los Lobos is a great band with lots of good records out. This one is from the album This Time. The drum and guitar sounds on this song are crushing!

Lemon Twigs, “Foolin’ Around”
The newest single from the Brothers Twig. This catchy little earworm has been slithering in our heads for days. Sounds like Queen meets the Raspberries

Muddy Waters, “Mannish Boy”
Rumor has it Muddy couldn’t get a record deal in the ’70s. Johnny Winter gives him a deal and together make one of Muddy’s best records ever! If this song doesn’t get you in the mood…

Sleaford Mods, “Messy Anywhere”
The Mods get slightly more melodic on this tune about bad party choices.

Randy Newman, “Gone Dead Train”
This is from the Performance movie soundtrack. The film starring Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg. Probably Randy’s most rocking tune. Note, that’s Ry Cooder on slide guitar.

Ty Segall, “The Main Pretender”
A dirty bass line and some sleazy saxophone. Sometimes that’s all you need.

Rolling Stones, “Plundered My Soul”
This is from the deluxe version of Exile on Main Street. Great song! Can’t believe they sat on it for so long.

Scorpions, “The Sails of Charon”
Uli Jon Roth-era Scorpions. This is some Proto Metal right here. Great riffs and leads!

From Kurt Cobain espousing the middling Melvins to Kanye West signing a singer from the library circuit, an artist’s ability to make great music doesn’t always mean they can identify it

I'll be at the Rock Island IL, Des Moines IA and Omaha NE Melvins shows. I was thinking of hauling a milk crate of assorted weirdness. PM if you have any requests for releases from the past couple years and I'll see if I can dig one up and bring it there!
