Probs for the best. I doubt they can make anything that would live up to what they'd already done. Too bad they don't play more shows tho with the material that already exists. Oh well.

Joelk were you there?!? Didn't see you

Sadly, no. I didn't do it this year. I gotta admit it's for the very reason you all have mentioned at least once--I can't do pavement heat for 9 hours. I know, I know. I've become a giant puss, but I can own that. I'm not the young man who went to this in 2010. I'll go to any night-time parking lot show (ala Melvins Lite 2012) or indoors Grumpy shindig (Prick release party), but I can't do all day sun on concrete on Joel.  :(

It sounds like it was a great time tho! How was Lydia Lunch? Glad Melvins played the majority of their set. Glad they get the full hour to do it now. I remember hating that their set was like 35 mins in 2010.

Also, I'm assuming Whores. delivered? That band always hits me right in the nuts.

Also part deux: I am very sad to have missed seeing the boardies, including Judy and giveme45. I hope you guys had an absolute blast. I imagine gm45 is on his way back to the west as we speak.

It was top five for hottest most muggy days ever. The show was a blast, but the sun really sucked the life out of me, so I totally understand. I was drinking water like crazy all day - by the time Cherubs came on I felt like I was totally going to fall over and crash. Had a snack in the air conditioning and made it back on time for Lydia Lunch. She was fabulous. History lesson! That was definitely a highlight. Melvins killed it, as usual. Blind Shakes were a lot of fun! Watching Shannon is like a performance art on its own. At one point he had a teddy bear that he was beating with a drum stick. Like, fuck sake?! This man is a maniac haha. Whores were also fantastic. I am honestly not a big Mudhoney fan, but they played a great set and it was a nice way to end the evening. That was a big deal for a lot of people there....

I think I had three adult beverage the entire night but the humidity just made me feel super goofy. Brian took me home when I my pirate mouth came out. Good timing  :wink: I always love seeing Grim, but it is impossible to dodge his camera  :P I was red with big hair and not in the mood for that. His wife is lovely, too. I got to see Bob Wants Chips again and this time he brought his wife! I love their Canadian accents. Best people. Bayerclan are my homies. Maryanne is the funniest person. Idle and Gimme45 = beesknees. DC = Milf bait. Paul is always super nice. Rev Mike is my brotha from anotha motha. Am I missing anyone? Oh, Mike from Splatt Gallery! Love him and his kids. Super cool people. It was like a big party. There were a bunch of nice people from the FB but I stuck with our own weird breed of people over here  :P

Very cool story!

I heard Fantomas had microphone issues, which is too bad. On another note, when did Patton start looking so old?

I've heard the album.

The noise LP is just that. Much of it is just ambient sound (recordings of people talking or kids playing in the background) mixed with guitar freakouts and sci-fi noises. It's, sadly, almost totally pointless. "Give it to Me" is a 60's-style rave-up that's okay, because it's a band playing music, at least. The whole disc sounds like something the band could've farted out in an afternoon. What's the point of even doing this? "Prick" at least had "Larry."

The "rock" disc is...okay. Sadly, the ancient outtake "Euthanasia" is the best, heaviest tune. "Flaming Creature" is up there, too. First two tracks are moody numbers. A lot of it is kinda clean-tone, half-cocked stuff that just doesn't do it for me. It's just verse, verse, verse, out. These songs don't really go anywhere.

Your mileage may vary. I've felt like these guys are impressive for never becoming a bad band, ever, but I've also felt -- and this album really exemplifies this -- that they're coasting, and have been for some time. The Melvins used to blow my fucking mind every time around. Now, they land a couple punches here and there, but it's all very ephemeral.

Steve's bass playing is phenomenal, though. What a killer musician. Best player since Mark D.

This all sounds fair and accurate. I'm hoping that Melvins eventually have a late career kaboom where they release some mindblowers. But I am glad they are still at it and continue to rock harder than most contemporaries.

Is it too much to ask that the guys do some downtuned shit-kicking slow shit again? I mean---they can do anything they want of course. But this stretch since Hold It In has been ZzzzzzZZZzzzzzzZZZzzzzz....

Omar is the weak link to this band IMO. His work will always remind me of the bro's that I went to high school with that were really into the red hot chilli peppers and john frusciante. I swear I remember an interview with him where he was talking about how he was a recovering cannabis addict and that he was smoking over an ounce a day. I call bullshit. No thanks.

I think that was the singer--Cedric? I recall that lame interview as well. But I have no horse in this race it seems. Crystal Fairy doesn't really do anything for me. I'm passing on the whole endeavor.
