Melvins Discussion / Re: Melvins gig posters get their own topic

Anyone know who’s doing the poster for the 40 watt tomorrow in Athens?

I have a SEALED Cassette of Houdini (It's not a coloured shell it's plain black) if anyone wants to Swap or trade Cassette I'm looking for a Bullhead Cassette tape in VG or NM condition if not sealed at least. If you have anything else you might think of that's worth a trade or of interest let me know.

I think I may have an extra bullhead. I’ll check once I’m back home tomorrow. I might be interested in a trade.

In Boston: War Pussy, Bride of Crankenstein, 4 Sugar Daddy splits, 3 Honky, Beer Hippy, Buzzo 10”, Escape from Hollywood, Blue Sabbath. Two shirts: Bullhead and Melvins/Red Kross

Thanks! Honky sleeves the Haze editions? Bride of crankenstein, war pussy, and beer hippy huh? That’s weird. Haven’t seen those available in a long time.

My good buddy who lives in Ithaca just texted me ...

"Whoa! Just realized Melvins/Red Kross are playing Syracuse tonight! Gotta go!"

hahaha ... hope he has fun

I was there last night. Awesome show!

First time seeing them in Syracuse... (I always go to Boston or NYC depending on what night the show falls on.)

Venue was pretty small which was great and it seemed to be only about 1/2-3/4 full  :shock:

Was able to get right up front and watch comfortably without much nonsense.

I truly love the set list they are playing right now. So freaking good..

What’s left on the merch table as far as records go? I’ve heard a lot has sold out.  I haven’t seen a picture lately. I’m seeing them next week. Hoping they restock on some stuff in NC or GA

Jesus christ $50 for a fuckin EP on vinyl.

Heard Haze on a podcast talking about people complaining about the prices of this kind of stuff. I’m paraphrasing but he basically said that normally just a print would cost that much and you’re getting a record to top it off. These are considered boutique items and if you want it you’re gonna pay for it.  Not to mention these aren’t normal printed sleeves, they are screen printed if I’m correct. As he said in the Melvins documentary, these are boutique items for fans who are willing to pay that much.

I get all that but to me this is taking the piss it's just gouging the fuck out of their diehard fans. This kind of shit wouldn't fly over here if people heard that a band was slapping a few cover songs on a 7" doing a "fancy" sleeve and charging the equivalent of around $75 AU they would cop so much shit and rightfully so.

I mean at least the band could sign the damn things or throw in a full length album on CD inside too.

Sounds like you want the fancy version for a non fancy price. It’s a 10” record not a 7”. Art was made by a hand carved linocut. If you’re not familiar Maybe you should look up what that is and how time consuming it is. And there’s only 400 of em. These aren’t mass produced run of mill eps,  That’s why they don’t have run of the mill prices. If that still doesn’t make sense , then just don’t buy it. Could they be a little cheaper ...probably. But no one buys music anymore. Merch is really the only way bands can make money now. That and touring. Good for them for figuring out a way to keep doing what they are doing and staying afloat when in a time where bands are hanging it up because of not making money. If they didn’t do as well in merch I wonder if they would tour as much as they do?

I agree it would be nice for them to have a bandcamp for all the singles and rare stuff.  That or a cheapie cd for every ep. seems like they usually end up on YouTube at some point or another though

I’m surprised as that basses loaded lp went for over 200 alone  last week on the hatebay.

It did initially sell out. I bet someone picked media mail. Haha. It said clearly to not pick media mail and if you did your order would be canceled.
It wouldn't sell out and then come back later for thirty minutes.

It would if someone picked media mail instead of priority. I’m sure someone picked media in the panic of just getting through the checkout process, order got canceled and they put it back up for sale. Maybe it took  30 mins for someone to realize it was back up. Once I see something is sold out I don’t usually go back for it. Someone got lucky though. I put my order through the second it was up. Went back and refreshed a minute later and it was deff sold out.

Bought a new copy around '02/'03 through Cinderblock/Ipecac store. It was between $50-$60 :lol:. I can't imagine what it goes for now.

They had some for sale on the last tour. Still sealed for $200. I don’t think they lasted long nor were there a lot of em.

Can anyone comment on the sound quality of the vinyl? I keep seeing gripes about it being mastered from the cd.

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).

Those are one off sleeves for the test Pressings. Sometimes they look nothing like the normal sleeve, so I’m anxious to see what it’s gonna turn out like.
