Melvins Discussion / Re: Melvins Shirts...

this guy is on fakebook and he swears up and down that this is officially licensed Melvins merch. no way, right?  :lol:

Super skeptical. Unless the band officially promotes it I wouldn't buy a single item from that vendor.

These are really cool. I love the design and packaging. I doubt I will ever get to see one up close.

Mackie's art during the Kevin years was particularly well suited, too. I loved the trilogy art and I love the HAT art especially the singles with those brash polka dots. But Colossus of Destiny takes the cake. I find it so Melvinsy and intriguing. Nice typesetting and layout. Serene turned foreboding a bit.

Bullhead, Stag, Houdini, and Electroretard are iconic and awesome. Just a matter of opinion I guess.

Buzz, Ipecac, Haze or whoever, if you're listening... 2020 Hostile Ambient Sausages on CD. I will buy it at $200. Do it MLVNSvsMPLS style. Make it for a good cause, even if that cause is the Melvins. Maybe do bundles with the Mackie book(s) we wanted from the art show.

These songs are out there. And they're killer. Jerkin Krokus in a way is the most Melvins cover ever. These are great renditions of great songs recorded and mixed with great execution.

You earn $0.00 from bootlegs. I refuse to buy bootlegs anymore but most people have little scruples for music that is so good that they feel entitled to it. Let this stuff out of the vault or find a new way to get these songs into the world. A download code on a piece of roof tile. An etched stick from nearby. Bandcamp flac a bandana and a banana flack jacket. Whatever it is.



I own these songs (finally) but I still listen to them on YouTube or CD-r like probably a majority of people do. Both HAT and clown series covers seem to come from a very fertile creative peak in the Melvins history.

I guess even CDs are getting rare now. Fuck, I'd buy it on DVD and BluRay even if it was just a slideshow. Use these as the soundtrack to a photography set. Whatever it is.

I'd consider it (as a set) the most essential vinyl only Melvins. And I am so glad I got a set a couple years ago.

Basses Loaded is just a terrible looking skull. The shape of the eye sockets and the dimple line next to it make it look like the skull has eyebrows and I using them to make a puzzled pansy look. Then the nose is this weird nutsack...

skull thing seems like it's been run into the ground thoroughly.
It is a bit isn't it. By now, a skull almost seems like a Melvins insignia

Went down a rabbit hole trying to find something snide to say about Misfits merch and how fans will buy skulls until they are one. Instead I just got this gem of Danziggery:

"society has to deal with me whether they like it or not, and a lot of times they don’t."

Personally I've loved skulls since I was old enough to draw so it will never be played out to me.

How expensive will the tickets have to be to make the rent on a place of that size and with that level of maintenance required.

Nah, the ticket seller doesn't reschedule the event. That's up to the client, which could be the venue or promoter depending on the contract. Once it's rescheduled you get a window for refund. If it's cancelled you get a refund automatically with the big three. Smaller ticket companies at risk of going out of business and resellers are the ones not giving refunds and only doing credits.

Lots of these small clubs and promoters are holding out hope of shows being able to play out. My heart goes out to them.

I like the mask. Not sure, might preorder.

I love the Kozik bit but I can't wear anything that says pussy on it. I love offensive merch but yikes.
