Melvins Discussion / Re: Melvins gig posters get their own topic
« on: February 14, 2020, 08:34:25 AM »




Is it possible that this is phony? Would LA guns play a house show? Is there a date mentioned on the flyer? I don't see it.

I got it off the Nick Blinko Patron Saint of the Bizzare Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/6417967223/

Then I checked themelvins.net wiki.

My question is why would RKL not be on the bill at this show? Look at the other dates during this period. So I'm not 100% sure, but why would anyone want to fake this?

I am thinking this is phony. I just learned that RP never played USA. some USA shows were scheduled during the 90s reunion, but those shows were canceled. The flyer itself may be "real," but I even doubt that. There's no date listed on the flyer and I doubt LA guns would be playing a house show at this point in their career. "Why" would someone do this? to create a gag and get people talking about it, like we are right now, is my guess.

People are Just gonna start putting green tape on their albums now.  #-o

another musician - maybe Jello?- said this, but it was weird and disrespectful of Tim to tape up the albums like that. It kind of destroys the art.

I really dug this band. I'm not sure why it didn't catch on or why people didn't seem to really like it. I guess because people were expecting Sleep II, but it was really more like Hawkwind meets Sabbath.  I saw the San Jose show and it ruled.

Reminds me of the Broken Bat project with Ty Segall, Dale & Steven (just before Steven officially joined the Melvins).
If I had to guess Buzz put the kaibosh on that real quick  :lol:

I don't think it was Buzz. I seem to remember a Dale or Steven interview where they essentially said "Ty lost interest." I could be wrong.

I think for most people, it's the album that comes out just after you really get into the band. I got into the band after 'Nude with Boots' came out, so I was very excited for 'bride screamed murder' and 'bulls and the bees'. Lucky for me, those albums both rule. I still get pretty excited for any Melvins material. It helps that most of their albums have a "purpose" in that, each album doing something interesting and new.

Melvins Discussion / The Melvins in 2020...
« on: December 31, 2019, 09:32:43 AM »
Ok! 2019 was a relatively slow year for the Melvins (but for most other bands, it would be considered "highly productive.") What will they release in 2020?! Will we get the rumored 'history of rock' album? More collabs? An interesting tour, perhaps? Who has the inside info? What do you hope they'll release?

Also, Winter is when they usually record. Does anyone know what they're up to?

Had another listen to PAT today. My dislikes still remain in place. At the core of it, this is actually a pretty good Melvins album. It's only the absolute stinker that is Embrace The Rub that ruins things. But i will add in the Beatles cover as somehow not very good too. Graveyard is another that although good just doesn't work at that slow, disjointed, almost deary(!) pace. I wish it was speeded up a bit like that "outdoor ice cream" video of the band playing it. That would have been an awesome finish. Replace the two stinkers and speed up Graveyard and this would have been a pretty damn good Melvins record.

Interesting! It just goes to show, different strokes. I love embrace the rub. it's basically a first wave west coast punk song and it's my favorite tune on the album.

I forget what the Jell-O Melvins era T-shirts were.

Does it say anywhere why This thing is this being re-released? was it not ever pressed on Vinyl? I have the CD but have a Taped copy of my Friends "Never breathe what you can't see" LP.

Shit Jules man....I'm feeling old already.

It's being re-issued as a "straight issue" so it's just a repress. They ran out so they made more.

No official digital versions of the Steven EP available. Only one pressing, but it's been released through the amrep shop, on tour, and in a few bundles.

What's your source on that? The Steve ep on discogs is a swirl vinyl, but mine is solid purple.

Completely missed this, was it only available physically?
I see some youtube rips but I'm looking for an official digital release.

Are you referring to the Steven EP? Yes, officially it was only vinyl in limited press at the shows and a few at shoxop. I think there may actually be two or more pressings though, as the one I bought in philly is slightly different than the one on discogs. It's possible that they may re-press it (probably as a show only item) as it seems over the past two years, they have been making newer, slightly different versions of the rare records released recently that sold out immediately.
