Who knows what the song is after POTRE, it could have been an unfinished/unreleased work in progress or just something to play in between

They played that during the Cameron Jamie shows, placed after Pigs just like they did here. Great riff. Might have been a glimpse of future work at the time, before the BB lineup added a new dynamic to things.
After that, Sunn O))) and Boris took that riff and evolved it into the most perfect and evil drone doom song ever, Etna.

Nah. That just sounds like a cool story, they didn't really do that.

...or did they?

Reissue not coming in a black sleeve is a crime.

How about white?
White on white looks interesting and at least it's not a messy mix of black and white and ripped pieces, but the edges are stil unpainted.
And it loses the irony of having an album named Honky have a black cover (with black-on-black drawing as well).
The criminal portraits are totally unnecessary, unrelated and I don't like their addition.
Black on black version of this without the portraits and with the sleeve painted completely would have been fine.

Honky is a masterpiece.

It's Easily the darkest album.
It's even got a dark cover!!
Reissue not coming in a black sleeve is a crime.
Yeah I know it's blackened in part, but it's not the same.
Should have taken black cardstock as a base... or let that tape cover the whole canvas.
Either way, that mishmash of cardboard, white and black is a huge mess.
Probably would be better to let Mackie handle this one. (if skulls can be avoided this time).

Was that 2010? Electric Flower remix single with skull on the cover came out that year and Nude With Boots with The Stupid Creep in 2009.

SO glad to hear the News about Hepa-titus Melvins show, that's very good to hear. this pleases me.
True. Anything that brings Kevin closer to the band is good news.

I've got to say he is sorely missed (no pun intended)
Indeed.

...He's the Reason my Ears are still ringing since June 16th of the year 2000. People were not very happy with his performance. I found it more than satisfying to my aural senses despite having severe hearing loss in my left ear in the high end spectrum...so severe I can't hear hi-hat tracks or ride cymbals on my left side.  =D>
Jesus... for real? To this day? :shock: I've been to very loud shows (Jucifer and Swans are top 2) but that's legit scary.
The club should pay damages for allowing the volume to be this high...

Furthermore, I'd really love a little Modular Synth collaborative, whether it's a live improv one-off kind of affair, it would be asking a lot but that's why it could be a throwaway and be Justified as such...
They should do another Colossus Of Destiny live (with no announcement that it'll be a special show, like the first time).

If you ever had dreams featuring the Melvins in your sleep, let's see them posted!

Share and discuss Melvins dreams.

I had one last night, the thing was they recorded a yet another cover song for a single.
However this one was actually a medley of four songs – "Meat", "Reinstall", "Reboot", and something unpronouncable I don't remember how it was spelled.
I don't know which part was which, but most of it sounded like some very light and melodic happy sounding pop punk.
Only a few licks of sludge buried in there somewhere. One of the parts was actually jazz with the old record effect (kind of like Joe's "The Eagle Has Landed").
I saw it uploaded on YouTube, for some reason the first part of the video was some kind of low quality .gif of a virtual stripper or something, and sometimes another video of three lingerie-clad women dancing (though that might have been in the "Related" section, I don't recall).
Then I believe it changed to an image of Sugar Daddy Live and then one of the Tribute (Clown) Singles.
Finally it changed to the cover image of this record which was just abstract stuff, a few green and black boomerang shapes on a clear thick PVC sleeve.

Also, in the comments, the guy who uploaded the video was acting kinda like a smartass, and in one particular comment thread with each new comment he started deforming his speech – first he started using v instead of u, then k instead of c, and kept going in that direction until his comments were unreadable.

Everyone straight up ignored my post... ._.

(The last one on page 1)
Notice me Senpai!  :lol:
Yeah Pretty much :lol:

The thing is, brilliant songs like You've Never Been Right, or The Fool, The Meddling Idiot come from the same emotional source as what we're talking about.
It's crucial. If it wasn't there, the Melvins' songs just wouldn't sound the way they are.

Totally agree. One of my favorites is "Let It All Be" which sounds like it should be a zen statement, but it really seems to be a direct takedown of a fellow music professional. I grew up in a house with no empathy, where tough love and stoicism were the virtues that hid stubbornness and defensiveness. I had to work through all that as an adult to become someone worth being around. But when I hear the cold condescension and righteousness in some Melvins songs and in Buzz's persona, it does click with something that I'm not allowed to let out in polite conversation. I don't need a mosh pit or a call to rebellion. But a bitter, cryptic missive wrapped in tricky riffs is a thrill I can only get from the Melvins.
Yes, exactly! When you know someone's wrong (or straight up Vile, or a Maggot) or circumstances are bad, and/or you feel psychotic, but you can't do much about it, that's when these songs really hit the spot. You can find reflection and understanding for these lingering feelings and thoughts that you can't express in a meaningful way. It's like the Melvins do it for you while also supporting you with kickass instrumentation, and you get that needed freedom to say "fuck you" or "fuck this" and feel great about it.

I liked the last line of your post. It reminded me of what I did in my 20s. There were a few people around that it just felt better to ignore rather than to wonder why I didn't get on with them (friends of friends, etc). Never looked back.
Uh... well, you just took the addendum and missed the actual point.

My point was it's unreasonable to demonize a person for just one trait or flaw.
It's the worst when people assume that some flaw means there's no good in that person at all, or that EVERYTHING about that person is flawed.
Because it doesn't.
Again – you are not required to like the person, but give credit where credit is due.
Like I said, Buzz wouldn't get to where he is if he wasn't Buzz. Even if he oversteps the boundary sometimes.

Interestingly enough, Kevin Rutmanis kind of opened my mind about this.

I'd give you an example but I'm afraid to drag politics in this. You can probably guess.
But any of his achievements beneficial to the people get swept under the rug and instead he's only judged by the dirt people keep slinging.

Same with Buzz. Some people in the topic said his jabs at other artists discredit him, I don't agree.
It's bad still but it's a part of what allowed him to get to where he is now.
You can't deny the positive side of it just because you don't like the negative.
In other words, try to judge people fairly, taking your negative bias into account.

Before watching I was afraid Buzzo's voice would sound cringy, but it turned out to be actually weirdly on point.
The Paranoid riff creeping in and the floor squeaking gave me the most chuckles.

*audio only*

From https://www.facebook.com/DavesPicturesOfPictures/

"Ok...I'm finally getting my shit together with converting my audio tapes. I now post for your consideration, a historical document if you will. May 1992. I drove up to Gainesville to see Melvins at the Hardback. But Buzz had gotten really really sick and flew home. Dale and Joe Preston played a full set anyway. I called them the Elvins. Listening to this tape after these decades passed, they actually did a pretty good job. But at the time we were pissed we drove over 200m round trip to see a Buzz-less Melvins. Here's the 1st few minutes of that show.

Has anybody else ever heard of Melvins doing a show like this?"

Oh wow.
Thanks Dave and Meezer.

Something tells me the band are cooking something up. A Rolling Stones album a Sabbath EP. Could all this be related somehow?
I'm pretty sure it will all be compiled into that "history of rock" album project they mentioned a while ago.
The new versions of Leech and With Yo Heart Not Yo Hands are probably a part of it too.

a small part of me is surprised anyone from MELVINS was interested in covering a Black Sabbath song.

but then again.. the almighty dollar is highly motivational.    this will sell like wildfire.
I'm sure Buzz likes Black Sabbath more than he wants to admit.
They've already done Black Sabbath covers and not for the dollah.
For all his talk of the Stones, Beatles and the importance of the classics there's no way he doesn't respect the founding fathers of heavy metal.
He just doesn't want to show it much.
They just don't worship them like, say, Sleep do.
He just has to say his contrarian thing every time, come on it's Buzz.
Of course has to mention they were more into Black Flag than Black Sabbath so people don't go thinking they were ripping off Black Sabbath when they built their sound, because that's not what happened, they grew from another scene. He doesn't want anyone building obvious false connections.
Regarding Ozzy he just obviously thinks his life decisions weren't that wise, but that's personal.
That's all there is to it.

11: Just curious from a fashion standpoint, who makes your awesome stage wear? The sweaters and tunics with psychedelic patterns, geometrics, and eyeballs?

Buzz: The mumus? They are made by a girl named Rebecca Sevrin from Montreal. I knew her from a band called Frightwig, and she had worked as a costume designer in Hollywood. She wanted to make me some mumus. She does really good work.
Nice to hear that question answered.

something about that performance on the video really felt all over the place. So much so that it shocked me. I suppose it could just be the mix or how the room sounded because i can't imagine it was the band.
No drums.
