Melvins Discussion / Lori Black news....kinda
« on: December 17, 2008, 07:01:47 PM »
"Now, despite her sterling surname, Buffett is getting by on $40,000 or so a year, largely on the sale of her paintings (collectors include Shirley Temple's daughter Lori Black and Hollywood special-effects guru Scott Ross). There's no denying that the Buffett name piques interest in the art world, where Nicole's pieces have fetched as much as $8000. One of her techniques is to leave unfinished works outside, exposed to the elements. "I like to see what happens," she says, hovering over canvases mottled with sunbursts of color. "

Melvins Discussion / (A) Senile Animal "Reviewed" in Vice magazine
« on: October 24, 2006, 07:42:58 PM »
my roommate works at American Apparel and she brought home an issue of Vice magazine tonight.  as she was looking through it she said, "they gave the melvins a thumbs up".
i looked at it.
i guess they do "thumbs up/thumbs down" + some little nonsense blurb and call it a record review.  stupid hipster publication if you ask me...
anyway, They gave it a thumbs up and the words went something like this:

Amy: "do you think only boys like the melvins?"
Sarah: "no, i like Houdini"
Amy: "yea, but they have like 50 other albums"
Sarah: "oh, well then Yea"

pretty funny i guess. 
still a trash hipster rag though

 BOYCOTT the MELVINS on Oct. 13. by schneidlomat on Oct 1,2006 6:40pm

: post by schneidlomat at Oct 1,2006 6:40pm

There is one person I will not hate if they do decide to not heed my call to
BOYCOTT THE MELVINS SHOW on Oct. 13, 2006 at the Living Room in Providence
RI. That is Jonathan W. He is a fan and should over-ride this and go.

Everyone else, should think hard about what I am about to write.

Back in the day, Arab on Radar was very excited to play a "big" show with
the Melvins at the Living Room. A few of us worked wt that place for brief
stints and really hyped the show up bigtime to Mr. Randy Hein (RIP). Randy
as a result, took our word and gave the MELVINS everything they demanded in
thier rider - including beer, a compelte catered dinner for all thier crew
and themselves, it was literally a room full of stuff, Randy shelled out
major cash for it...

Long story short, and hour before thier sound check (apx. 6 PM) thier
manager calls from Boston trying to shake Randy down for an extra 1000.00 to
play. They debated for a while and Randy could not pay them what they asked.
Then they moved on to the reason - they didn't want a local band on the
show, they did not want to pay the local band yadda yadda...
They basically did not want to play...

So, they screwed everyone, did not show up, and continued on thier tour.

We in AOR put up a sign letting fans know that they weren't playing. About
250 people looked at it, turned around and left. We played to about 50
people... bad show.

Thats do-able, OK.

BUT.

The next week my homie from Atlanta (thier next stop on tour) mailed me a
clip from their local Phoenix type of newspaper, I think it is called the
Atlanta Weekly or something like that...

It contained an interview with King Buzzo, that stated the reason they
cancelled Providence was because the club owner "did not support local
bands"... ! You can find all of this online if you care to do some googling
or other forms of websearching.

SO that was BS, we e-mailed thie management and threatened to kick thier
asses if they came back... which (funny enough) kept them out of Providence
for many years. no lie...

They apparently did come back later with HELMET and basically snag stupid
showtunes and fuckedoff the whole show.

in a nutshell, they absolutely suck, the music, the hairdos, talentless
cronies and jaded old farts.

I call on all people, who care about local music to pass on this show...

I find it personally repugnant that anyone in Providence would BOOK this
shit knowing the score, but someone did, and ya know... someone always does.
It is like being an intern for Antonin Scalia, theres always some poor
schmuck that will sell out all principles and do it... sad, truely sad.

But please do not go.

I can offer a free 7'' (made in mexico) to anyone who seriously can convince
me that they were going and decided not to due to this call to boycott.

This is the first and probably only boycott I would ever contemplate, but we
need to make it not profitable to screw over bands and awesome club owners
like Randy was.

I loved that guy and miss him much.

Melvins Schmelvins (you can download every good album of thiers for free
easily, they suck live, they have sucked for years, give it up)

thanks.

part two of the poll, to see if there is an difference between the two albums or if people feel a certain way about the "band" consistently.
thanks for participating

hopefully this will turn out some sort of meaningful data, as long as enough people take it.  many people say, "i used to listen to DK, but that has nothing to do with why i like this album" sure maybe that's true, but i want to see statistics!

thank you for participating

Melvins Discussion / another wacky melvins coincidence [ATTN: RKISH]
« on: October 09, 2005, 10:19:06 PM »
a friend of mine, and one of the only people i know who enjoys the melvins, drew a melvins shirt a while ago for self-amusement.  her mother recently donated it to the salvation army, and it has presently popped-up for auction on ebay as a one-of-a-kind hand-drawn melvins tee.  the guy selling it lives about 5 miles from where it was created, in a county where melvins fans are hard to come by.
i thought this situation was pretty improbable... another melvins fan happened to be in the salvation army where my friend's mother dropped off this shirt, he finds it and decides to auction it off, and the creator of the garment sees it up for sale (jaw probably drops round about here).  i contacted the seller and he gave me his number, told me to call if i'm ever in his neck of the woods [a stones through away from my neck.  of the woods.]
seems like there is often a cloud of improbability around this band.  maybe it's just cuz we're all a bunch of creepyfreekies.
