I just really struggle to see how this snowballed into them getting kicked off the tour by Buzz.
Reading the zine, the tour wasn't mentioned until Buzz informed them that they wouldn't be able to continue and to end the collaboration. In some ways it seemed harsh and out of the blue, but at the same time i can totally understand why Melvins took that decision. It might not have been an insulting exchange of words between the two bands prior to that, but it was enough to - possibly suggest to Buzz or anyone really - that it could easily lead to future conflict whilst out on tour. Obviously they didn't want to deal with that.

Firstly thanks for putting some more meat on the bone as I haven't read the zine and I'm not arguing with you personally in anyway this whole thing is bizarre to me really. Taking the step of kicking another band off your tour is a very serious thing to do. Aside from depriving that band of income and exposure it's hugely frowned upon in the industry. Plenty of bands have toured together that hated each others guts and you just be professional get on with it and generally try to stay out of each others way. There hasn't been a punch up here between bands it's a minor disagreement over poster artwork, it's bizarre.

Look at the longstanding feud between RHCP and Mr. Bungle. It culminated in RHCP (Anthony Kiedis) as headliner on festival bills and having the right to kick other bands off chose to kick Bungle off of about 10 festivals they were also playing depriving them of income and a shit load of exposure that all the Bungle guys were so furious about they did that infamous Halloween send up video of RHCP and some of the guys said played a part in the premature break up of Bungle.

So anyway the whole bust up was really just over the artwork for Bangers?
It wasn't even that - the dispute came about from a pre-album drawing/ad for the record. It wasn't actually the album art.

Okay that's even worse I guess. I just really struggle to see how this snowballed into them getting kicked off the tour by Buzz.

So anyway the whole bust up was really just over the artwork for Bangers? I didn't believe that at first I thought it was too silly to be legit. You don't go kicking bands off a tour just because you have a disagreement about the artwork on a split EP.

She's a young feminist woman from a very left-wing country like Sweden they'll die in a ditch over something like this Buzz should've had the gumption to back down instead of digging his heels in, it's only artwork it can be changed who cares. Disappointing. Now look at the all the bad publicity the Melvins have got out of it.

Sometimes I genuinely wonder how Buzz has been able to last this long in the industry all the bridges that have been burned over the years when given half a chance he always insists in shooting himself in the foot.

Plus i wonder what happened with Lina in the band. Now Shitkid appears to just be the main girl Asa. I wonder if it was an amicable split or something else there.

As I understand it Shitkid up until a few years ago was always just a solo project for Asa and the other girl Lina only joined the band a couple of years ago and recently quit, maybe a relationship that ended? It happens.

FWIW I think Asa is quite easy on the optic nerve in that pic above but I probably shouldn't say that I might end up on Shitkid's shitlist ;)

I remember with Crystal Fairy they had some showcase type shows booked 2-3 shows in California in early '17. Then At The Drive-In announced their reunion tour with Le Butcherettes as support and the dates were at the exact same time as the Crystal Fairy dates so once those CF dates were cancelled that ended the project.

30+years of touring the world and Shitkid is the only band they've kicked off tour, so, just sayin'.
Yes, that says quite a lot really. I can't wait to read these messages. I hope Shitkid didn't alter or twist the messages to make it look like they were the ones in the right. I just want to be able to read the honest, uncensored back and forth between them and make my own mind up.

I still have absolutely no idea what happened to cause the falling out but even though I'm a Melvins fan and don't agree with her trying to make money off of private text messages, Buzz falls out with virtually every one so it's hardly a surprise.

Most of the covers I didn't care for but two I loved were the Roxy Music cover with Jello and the Bowie cover with JG Thirlwell.

All-time best Melvins release title too!

Kevin is my favorite Melvins bassist.

HAT 20th Anniversary tour with Kevin, ftw.

Oh yes.

I think i tend to consider it a follow-up Melvins Lite album myself.

That's what I thought this album sounds a lot more like Freak Puke than TMKA.

Interesting batch of tunes from Buzzo. This doesn’t disappoint. Dunn’s presence definitely elevates the situation. This is keeping my attention better than TMKA. I’m enjoying my first listen!

His first solo album was much better than this, IMO.

Still, regardless of what i think, im very eager to hear more about this next album and of course to hear it!

Do we know it's going to be an album though? I saw an interview with Buzz a couple of months ago and he said they were finishing up a new Melvins 1983 release in the studio but didn't say if it was going to be an album or one of those AmRep singles/EP's. Also someone on here said recently that the Melvins aren't particularly interested in releasing albums anymore which is supposedly why they haven't released one for the past couple of years.

His Presidential campaign was BIRTHED in racism. But you go on with your free-thinking self.

Yep how little we forget Donald Trump was the guy that started the 'Birther' movement against the President Barack Obama to try and discredit him before running himself. How anyone could deny Trump is a racist POS with a straight face is beyond me and that's even before getting to his 'build a wall' shit either.
