Respect for their playing abilities you mean. Im pretty sure if someone asked him about Deutrom, David Scott Stone, or Joe or Matt Lukin he wouldn't be quite so respectful about them as people.

i hate it when bands change 'monkeys' to 'junkies', or 'lysol' to 'Lyson'.
I applaud the effort, but i think that is two very distinctly different things there.

Except for the KEXP studio series on YouTube. Buzz did one of those, wish the band would too.
Yes!! Those are an example of this sort of thing done right. I love the KEXP series sessions that bands have done. Melvins make it happen.

I will say something about this show, it did offer up one gem - the bands cover of 'Hey Hey We're The Monkies' altered to "junkies". That was pretty funny and made me think i'd like to see them put that on a record. A bit like how Dale goofs around on Bride Screamed Murder at the end of one of the songs playing a tongue in cheek version of 'My Sharona'. I'd love to see them do a similar thing with their '...Junkies' version.

You're a braver man than I, Ian. No way I'm gonna listen to people talk while a band just stands there awkwardly.
It's probably closer to being foolish than brave. I watched it live and so had to endure the lot whatever went down. More than a few times i thought about giving up! Anyone who hasn't seen this yet should simply just watch the first three songs they perform right at the beginning and then leave it there.

while Adult Swims b-team said some cringey, dumb shit.
Some? The whole set up was childish and kept making me think there was no place for the "Adult" in Adult Swim. There shouldn't have been any talk or fooling around - just the band playing.


but it's typical adult swim hipster bullshit throughout.
Yes, that was it exactly. Absolutely dire.


One thing that did make me laugh though was after numerous idiotic, nonsensical callers when one normal guy was talking and Dale said "this guy sounds a bit more cohesive". Im pretty sure he meant "coherent".

I'll click back on that link in 45 minutes. No way im listening to those two guys talk stupid for that long.

Im guessing it will be a usual Melvins setlist from this tour?
I'm thinking an interview and a song.
Ah of course! You're probably right there. I did think it was odd for a show at this time of day. Well... i mean their time of day.

For me its because Kevin was a total outcast, unique player and lovable weirdo. They're all the epitome of the Melvins.

The newer bassists just seem like guest appearances and they are that as much as buzz admits to not wanting a bassist anymore.

It doesn't really matter to me who's best or longest or what have you. I don't know, for me it's just Kevin was so perfect a fit for the band.
I agree entirely. Which is probably why Kevin is my favourite of the bassists.

Kevin was a Melvin. The others are and always will be guest Melvins.
In a way i agree with you there but at the same time i still wonder what you mean by that. Was Kevin in the band when you got into them maybe? Could that be why? I mean Jared was on bass longer than Kevin was. If we're talking duration of course.

Something im interested in with the film is how people will respond to it who DON'T know the band. Those who are not at all familiar or partially so with the ins and outs. For me i think that was something that hampered my own enjoyment in that i was way TOO familiar with their history. I knew all the details and essentially, each time, what would come next.

I say this because a few years ago i watched a documentary about some aging metal band (whose name i totally forget) who had released a couple of records and then called it quits. The film picked up in the present with a reunion tour etc and seeing what had happened in their lives. It wasn't really a great documentary and their music kinda sucked but i did enjoy watching BECAUSE i knew nothing about this band.

what's he bitching about?
Im not bitching about anything, im just talking about setlists. It interests me how and why bands list their songs as they do.
