Melvins Discussion / Re: Sieg Howdy re-released
« on: January 18, 2019, 09:42:04 AM »
I forget what the Jell-O Melvins era T-shirts were.

Does it say anywhere why This thing is this being re-released? was it not ever pressed on Vinyl? I have the CD but have a Taped copy of my Friends "Never breathe what you can't see" LP.

Shit Jules man....I'm feeling old already.

It's being re-issued as a "straight issue" so it's just a repress. They ran out so they made more.

No official digital versions of the Steven EP available. Only one pressing, but it's been released through the amrep shop, on tour, and in a few bundles.

What's your source on that? The Steve ep on discogs is a swirl vinyl, but mine is solid purple.

Completely missed this, was it only available physically?
I see some youtube rips but I'm looking for an official digital release.

Are you referring to the Steven EP? Yes, officially it was only vinyl in limited press at the shows and a few at shoxop. I think there may actually be two or more pressings though, as the one I bought in philly is slightly different than the one on discogs. It's possible that they may re-press it (probably as a show only item) as it seems over the past two years, they have been making newer, slightly different versions of the rare records released recently that sold out immediately.

I'm late on this, but better late then never. My Steven review -

It's funny because at the time the album was announced and we started hear the odd song preview, i remember reading from fans on The Comatorium forum (a place for all things ATD-I, Mars Volta and Omar) that this project wouldn't have legs. That it would soon sink down and be forgotten among Omar million other projects and records. At the time i thought this was ridiculous and fully expected Crystal Fairy to be quite a stable, long running thing. Lots of shows and more records in the future. Seems i was very much mistaken. Same happened to me with Shrinebuilder. I had high hopes that soon fizzled out.

Shrinebuilder had such promise. People weren't thrilled with the album, but I actually loved it. Also, the live show was amazing. I saw it in san jose and it was incredible.

I wonder what really happened to end Crystal Fairy...I’ve heard all the Omar stuff like he played with At the Drive In instead...but why didn’t they just pick it back up?

I have no inside info at all, but my guess is Buzz asked Omar if he could commit to Buzz/Crystal Fairy plans, and Omar said yes. Omar then flaked, which really screwed over Buzz as, maybe unlike Omar, he needs to gig to make money for the year. So, Buzz saw Omar basically not caring about something that Buzz was putting 100% into and agreed to do (Dale even said they were going to pause the melvins for CF!) and that that rightfully so really angered Buzz. Also, I think Buzz is definitely the kind of guy that follows through on his word, and Omar's flakiness really made him mad, as well.

Honestly, I liked Crystal Fairy a lot, but I sort of thought Omar made it "too busy" sounding. I sort of wish it was just Melvins and teri, which from the live show, was definitely awesome. But, in the long run, for me personally, it doesn't really matter- as long as I get Melvins in some form, I probably get the same amount of "enjoyment" from it, no matter the form it takes.

Honestly, at $65 after shipping to US, I just couldn't do it. There have just been too many cool records for me this year. Kudos to those that get one, though

I'll start- I LOVE 'basses' and really liked 'pat', but I'd like to see the Buzz, Dale, Jeff, Steve lineup do something far out in the vein of 'pigs of the roman empire' or 'honkey'. I certainly wouldn't say no to new jelvins, either. Basically, I would be down for anything unexpected.

So, as we know, the Melvins usually use the winter months for recording. Does anyone have any inside info on what's in the works? Does the Sabbath single forecast the 'History of Rock' album they were talking about?

Also, as a fan, what would you like to hear from them in 2019?

them poor sleep stoners...
That’s probably why it went even faster than usual.  Wasn’t just us nerds watching.
Yeah, it was crazy how quickly this one sold out. I had a blood red in my cart, but it was gone when I went to check out. Tried for blood red, put it in ym cart, and then that was sold, too- all in less than two minutes! Still, at least the cd as available. A record would have been nice, but a slong as I can get a physical copy in some format, I'm happy.

I wonder why Buzz is doing this considering his burning hatred for Ozzy-era Sabbath
Not quite true it seems.

That's straight-up bizarre; just a year or two ago I read an interview with him where he shit all over them, complained about being compared to them because he said he never thought they were actually very good/thought they were horribly overrated, and said their only decent album was Heaven & Hell. This is like the diametric opposite of the stuff he was saying there.

I would point out that this article seems that the site reached out to Buzz and seemed to ask "why is sabbath cool?" I don't think that Buzz wrote to them asking to do an article. His answers in this seem to mostly try to walk away from sabbath and talk about priest, cooper, and blue cheer.

I would guess the root of it is this: Buzz and co really like Sabbath. But, they feel it minimizes them when they are viewed as a band that is just trying to duplicate sabbath's sound, or is a band that is MOSTLY influenced by sabbath, as that seems to suggest they're not adding their own originality or cleverness into their own music, or are always in the shadow of another band. I think Buzz sees Sabbath as something like 1/20th of what the Melvins are, the rest being influence of other bands, other art, and the band's own spark. This is totally my guess, mind you.

Melvins Discussion / Re: A Walk With Love & Death THE MOVIE
« on: September 04, 2018, 08:27:24 AM »
I believe that the single disc soundtrack version of love/death has different (or slightly different) music than the 2xLP version, correct?

In that case, will the single disc version get a more widespread release then the inital run which was sold through shoxop a few weeks ago? How about the movie itself?

Damn, that vinyl is going to be sold out in less than 5 minutes, I hope Hazelmyer has plans to release it on CD as well.

Is there a day/time listed for sales yet?

Haze says it's a 10-inch. anyone have any idea about the music on it?

Can someone explain this line from the shoxop posting: "Can't stress this enough, film score here, not the previously released Ipecac album of the same name."

Does this mean that the record just released is different from the noise/experimental disc 2 of the Walk with love and death album?
