I have the Pessimiser - it is a reallly good pedal, built like a tank, looks great and has a great sound with a wide range of tone in each knob.

Trey did play with Plainfield for a bit. I saw Plainfield with Trey open for Melvins in 1993. It was amazing!

Isn't this that obscure "cowboy" split they did? I'm going totally off Mark Prindle's description, never heard it
Yeah, Cowboy is the best to date. Melvins on one side - between-song rants about stage diving building up to a hilarious finale. Smelly Mustafa (Plainfield) on the other side, ranting and raving. Released on Smelly's label; there's usually plenty available on Discogs from around $20.

Jules what's the Relationship between Smelly (stupid question but is Smell actually Trey Spruance?) and King Buzzo, PLainfield released numerous Seven inches and I heard that Smelly was Roadie for the Melvins for a time and Buzz Has some credit on plainfield here and there along with many other well known names... was this around the same time Buzz put something out on his own Label "fuck you" records? and whats up with that Label exactly?

PS. Jules, If you ever want to trade some music, I'd really love to have a copy of all the plainfield stuff because they're awesome. I had a couple Cassettes taped off the seven inches I had about four of them, but the tapes AWOL for years with a lot of things...when you have a massive Cassette collection things tend to disappear from time to time...whether or not thats "friends" helping themselves, you know?

I can tell you that Smelly is not Trey. I have had dinner with both at the same time. Smelly is a real estate agent in Hawaii.

Melvins Discussion / Re: Toshi's production on Melvins albums

Toshi is seriously one of the nicest, funniest and most bad ass people I have ever met. I got to record at Sound of Sirens once and it was a blast. Probably the easiest engineer / producer I have ever worked with - makes everything fun, has a killer ear and gets amazing results.

Mark D is a seriously badass musician. I love his Silent Treatment album - so fucking good.

Gluey Porch Treatments

Although technically, I bought Deep Six before that.

Must have been a cool record shop.

I lived in a little town called "Gig Harbor" (right next to Tacoma, Washington). We had a record store there called "Sounds Great" which sold tons of great punk rock records. Between that place and Tower Records in Tacoma - I was covered.

The artwork is different on the Third Man records as well. Same with Ozma.

It looks like the images in the gatefolds are much better on these. Might be time to trade up.

And yeah, if you want an original, they have a bunch on Discogs all of the time.

This Boner reissue sucks....again. I've really had it with them. What's the coolest thing about vinyl? To me clearly the size of the cover artwork. And what do they do? They make the acutal art smaller (why on Earth would you do that????), put an ugly frame around it, and as a last straw pair it with another release, which I already have in its original form (Ozma). Now a second chance to make it right - and they fuck it up again. Before ordering, I just had a quick look on Discogs and the Bullhead reissue seemed to look fine. Unfrotunately, they have uploaded the original artwork, not the, as they proudly(?) call it, updated art. When my LP arrived, I wanted to throw it right out of the window. They made the letters bigger and the art smaller (again, WHY???), gave it a duller shade of blue than the original (or my bootleg, which I wanted to replace), and to top it off, there is a pink smudge on the front cover (I asked my dealer, and the other copy he has, has the same issue). How can you botch so many things at a time? Was it a wager or something? Beats me.

Third Man did it better, but not perfect either. What's cool about physical releases? The credits in the booklet/on the sleeve. So why did they remove the credits from the Stag reissue??? Makes no sense. And it's not really cool towards all the people who were metioned there.

Do the Melvins deserve these shitty reissues? I don't think so.

I'm not a fan of the way the albums were packaged together. Even less of a fan of the shitty pixelated images in the gatefolds.

But I do think for the single issues of Bullhead, Ozma, Houdini, Stoner Witch and Stag they have changed the artwork slightly to differentiate from the original releases?

The next logical step is to have two drummers, two bassists and two guitarists. I will volunteer for second guitar. I have a Pessimiser on the way.

I will be at the Troubadour show. Too old to go to more than one show per tour now.

Just ordered one from Hilbesh. Looking forward to it.

This is the most SOLID Melvins record for me since Bulls and the Bees. Amazing cover song choices, amazing originals - especially the ear worm that is Don't Forget to Breathe.

I think what a lot of people are experiencing with all of the recent albums is fatigue due to the amount of music that they put out now. It used to be, back in the day, you would get a really solid Melvins album or EP once every 1-2 years. This requires a band to be much more selective about what songs they record and release. The Melvins are now at a point in their career where they can be as prolific as they wanna be - they are putting out new records all of the time. They have a studio and engineer at their disposal whenever they want to record and two labels that will put out everything that they do. They are constantly writing music, recording music and collaborating with new musicians or doing solo projects and side projects (Crystal Fairy). By releasing what seems like everything that they are recording, the quality of the music is not going to be as high all of the time, but the quantity is sure up there. If they were in a position of only being able to put out a record or EP in the numbers of the late eighties and early nineties, we would probably see a much different selection of songs that reach our ears. I am not complaining, and I am certainly not going to tell Buzz and Dale how to run their show, I trust them 100%, but just think that is what is going on here. I would rather have TOO MUCH Melvins music than none at all!

All of that being said - this album kicks my ass.

I also might be full of shit too because Maggot, Bootlicker, Crybaby and COD all came out pretty quickly. What the fuck do I know?
