What's great with you guys is that you still seem to enjoy what you're doing after all this time.
Yeah, that's very true. It's so ideal ; I don't know what we'd do. [laughing]

Was there a time when you wanted to let everything down and to do something else ?
No, not really. I mean... You know... I think not for a long time.

Never ?
No, I dont' think so.

So it was always great ?
It wasn't always great, but I never wanted to quit.

But if you could change something in the past, what would it be ?
[thinking a long time] I can't think of anything, look at everything we did. I'd change something in my earning, you know, mine is getting worse. [laughing] We all want to do that. Dealing with the past isn't always easy, you know, so...

You're not focused in the past ?
Not much. I think back a little bit. I don't think I'd change anything, it's ok.

Did the idea of playing with more people than by the past came from the big band with Fantomas ?
No, not so much. We already had tried something new, pretty much, and that's where it comes from. We needed a new bass player, and it started to make sense.

After Kevin [Rutmanis] ?
Yeah. So we stopped to try it to let it happen. So far, so good.

And is the Business really Big ?
Yes... very big. Yeah, we wanted them to do ; we're big fans.

What's the difference of Nude with Boots compared to the first album with them ?
I think the new album is weirder. But I'm not a good judge, because I'm too close.

What are its specifics for you in a few words ?
No ease with the melody.

Who would you consider as a 5th member ?
Muhammad Ali.

[laughing] I don't think he can play.
We could take on stage with us ; it'd be fun.

And what would be the "dream team" for you ?
Jimi Hendrix and Judy Garland.

Nobody still alive ?
Alive ? [thinking] Los Lobos.

I've read recently this about The Melvins : "They're brutal. Big holes of silence between orchestrated movements. They make your nose bleed, but in a really good way."
Who said that ?

Adam Jones.
Adam Jones ? Oh, he's a very nice guy. He's very good.

So, is that ok with you ?
Sure.

What do you think of Tool ?
I don't think they work enough. They need to work more.

They're lazy ?
Yeah, lazy.

And for fun, what could you say about Mike Patton ?
For fun ? I wish he'd do his best to make a Faith No More reunion. [laughing]

The "Nightmare before Christmas" in December is about to be awesome ; but who's missing for it to be the best festival in the world ?
If we get Bob Dylan and Pink Floyd, it will. [laughing]

And less famous ? Some artists you'd like people to discover ?
We already have lots of bands that we wanted, that's good. Ah... Pete Townshend.

Can you tell what's coming next ? What about your project with Adam Jones ?
Yeah, I don't know when it's going to happen, no idea.

Is he lazy ?
That's part of it, yeah. I'm waiting for him, pretty much. I'll do it whenever he wants it.

So what is he doing ?
What is he doing ? Not much. [laughing] A lot of bit. [still laughing]

Is there recent music that inspires you today ?
New music ? Oh, it's hard... [thinking] Nothing that's in my head, nothing in particular. I listen to a lot of stuff, but something that influences what I'm doing...

Last year, it was the silver anniversary of the Melvins ; are you ready for the gold ?
Yeah ! I'm ready to the solid gold !

Melvins Discussion / Buzz talks about Kevin's departure...
« on: September 07, 2005, 05:21:16 PM »
From an interview in Melbourne (Aus) street press 'Beat' promoting the upcoming Fantomas tour:

"It got to the point with Kevin where his lifestyle and our lifestyle just didn't seem to mix.  I think you can fill in the blanks there, without me having to say it.  We decided we didn't want it to happen any more; that's basically where it's at unfortunately.  I personally like Kevin, and I like the way he played bass but there's only so much of that sort of extra-curricular activity in the insanity department that I can handle.  Now if you talked to Kevin I'm sure that he would have a much different view of the whole thing, but that's the way it is for me and I can't help it.  Hopefully Kevin will get it together and, some day, me and him can be friends again."

« on: August 12, 2005, 06:34:54 PM »
Both stonerrock.com and Alternative Tentacles are now selling the 2xLPs of POTRE and The Mangled Demos (looks like the AT store has a better price.)

 A bonus track for POTRE is mentioned, but the track list doesn't show it?......

Melvins Discussion / Al Jourgensen remixing Melvins & Jello...
« on: March 06, 2005, 04:44:38 PM »
From http://www.side-line.com via http://www.prongs.org/ministry/news ....

Quote

Although rumoured here and there, Al Jourgensen from Ministry will not join Killing Joke on stage during their 25th anniversary gigs in London. In a chat with Side-Line a spokeswoman for Jourgensen said: 'Raven and Al discussed this possibility in Portland Oregon last year when we were on the Evil Doer Tour. However, due to Al's studio schedule - he is currently working on a re-mix for The Melvins/Jello Biafra - he will not be able to perform in London for the Killing Joke Anniversary celebration.' Nevertheless Paul Raven, Jaz Coleman and Al Jourgensen are currently discussing plans for a collaboration project. More to come as those plans unfold.


Now that should be something to look forward to!
