Melvins Discussion / Re: 2 on bass, 2 on drums, 2 on guitar

I remember liking Patton's work on two of the songs and rejecting the others. I owe that a revisit.

I seem to recall Melvins/Fantomas doing Pigs of the Roman Empire and thinking that was the definitive rendition.

Glutton! But really, yes, this would be amazing. Everything loaded.

Maybe they do have some stuff to drop the end of this year, but like good business folks, they've aligned the right media outlets to break news and debut tracks. So when every interviewers has to ask for new material news, it gets old.

I don't think there's any problem between Ipecac and Melvins.

Melvins current tour is coheadline with Redd Kross and Redd Kross have a recent album plus they have a collab EP.

Only thing suspicious is the drop of Shitkid, but young international artists often have trouble going overseas.

Steven Shane McDonald - What Did I Ever Do To You *

King Buzzo - Laid Back Walking

Dale Crover - Big Uns

King Buzzo - Isabella

Joe Preston - Bricklebrit

Dale Crover - Respite

* I must mention that the standout track on Steven's EP was his cover of Sparks "When Do I Get to Sing My Way" but they seem to have made that a Redd Kross song subsequently. "Making Peace With Your Loss" is also great.

It's been around on YouTube in low quality for a while.

Not really any Melvins talk we'd care for in this, but always good to get Steven's stories:

I keep listening to bootleg mp3s of the Steven solo record. It's fucking amazing. We need a proper digital release, cheapy CD or download.

What other fanbase has a favorite band with a thirty year arc where they still put out Hold It In, This Machine, Crystal Fairy, Basses Loaded, A Walk, plus these collabs EPs and PAT in the span of five years? You guys take this band for granted. That's all I'm saying.

If they're hoarding some new original work to release soon, I'm happy about that, too. Maybe Melvins Lite or Cantonese 2 will come first. That's fine. If you've seen Steven and Dale on this tour, you know this iteration of the band has completely coalesced into the monster we all want. Let them do something. If they told us the plan for Bootlicker or Stag or POTRE in advance all these boardies probably would have pined for the last album be done all over again. Thank God The Melvins listen to their own direction.

We might be missing a wink or some other context when Dale's transcribed saying "I don't know why" about the collabs.

Sacrifice, Green Manalishi, Going Blind, Lexicon Devil, Female Trouble, Black Sabbath, Leeech, the list goes on... There are cover songs that are as Melvins as can be.

Besides, "Hot Fish" and all the Shitkid record are new songs. Don't sleep on these releases.

Exactly one track from each release.

I've probably recounted this before. Was a grungebaby Nirvana fan in middle school. Read Kurt produced Houdini in a few interviews. Put in the disc at the listening station at CD Trader. Liked Hooch and read the nonsense lyrics. Skipped ahead to the two songs where Cobain was listed which turned out to be Sky Pup and Spread Eagle and probably decided to go buy some lame alternative CDs instead.

Next year I did the same with Prick. Checking out Pure Digital Silence and something else based on song titles. Decided this was not my band.

A music friend recommended Stoner Witch and I probably ordered it from BMG Music Club with 18 other CDs for a penny then promptly canceled like my big brother advised. That album just about changed my life.

I was an arm's length fan, though for another decade. Stag and Colossus and Singles all had severe "cooling" effects on my unready brain. Even HAT and Senile threw me off, though Bullhead and Stoner and Maggot and Bootlicker had become reliable loves.

I finally saw Melvins on stage for the first time around 2009 maybe. That started a fuller appreciation that caused me to revisit the gaps and succumb to everything Melvins.

Beg to differ about Honky. Lovely Butterflies and Mombius Hibachi are classic Melvins, but not even at the level of Atlantic year classics. They All and Pitfalls and Mouth Breather are anomalous essentials. Grin and Freaktose are fun. Laughing is among their better novelty tunes. But there's still ten to fifteen minutes on this record that just never connected for me.
