Melvins Discussion / Re: Melvins With Steven McDonald On Bass
« on: January 10, 2021, 01:02:37 PM »
I like Steven's bass skills and he has good energy during live shows. However, I'm not really a fan of his singing or songwriting. I thought Jared fit great with the band, especially vocally. Would love to see Big Business rejoin the Melvins. Kevin would probably be my next favorite Melvins bassist of this century; though watching him live was a bit unnerving.

With so many talking about the spotty releases Melvins have had over the last ~decade, it has me wanting to start a new thread where everyone puts together their own 2010 and forward Best of Melvins collection that's no longer than 80 minutes.

Or maybe just do that in here?

Melvins Discussion / Re: What's your favourite Melvins cover song?

Almost forgot about Missing off the Electroretard album. Another favorite cover of theirs that was originally performed by the Cows.

Melvins Discussion / Re: What's your favourite Melvins cover song?
« on: April 28, 2018, 01:59:28 AM »
The Green Manalishi is most likely my favorite cover of theirs, followed by The Ballad of Dwight Fry. After those two, Female Trouble, Let Me Roll It, and Dies Iraea would be the only other ones in the conversation for me. One of the few times I've seen the Melvins live in San Jose they did something they don't usually do and had a break in the middle of their set. More interestingly, they played Dies Iraea as the ending song for their first set and then came out and opened the second set with it. Pretty fucking weird choice and I dug it.

8 tracks, 3 of them covers. The rest of em written by Pinkus Or Steve. One track bearing Crovers name as well.  Yet I see people saying this is their best album in ten years? Really? Only proof of this being a melvins album is the band name on the cover. This is a Pinkus album wih a few covers,  lets be honest. I know it was said in an interview that it wasn’t planned and it was done really fast which makes sense after hearing it. Hopefully someday they will learn quality over quantity unless there is quality and quantity (the trilogy) I feel like some of the same people who say this is their best in a long time are the same people who say they love prick or think the second disc of a walk with love and death is amazing. Prick was a joke and the second disc of awwlad is pretty much the same. I know buzz said the second disc was hard to do but that doesn’t make it good. The original tracks aren’t horrible. I was really liking prenup butter til Steven came in with that horrid bass effect.  he used that same shit live on Amazon last time I saw them. Bass wah filter phaser filter what ever the fuck it is please someobe take it from him. I know they love playing with him but Jesus the dude Is a goofball and cheeses everything up on stage. I say that knowing the Melvins have a sense of humor behind everything they do.maybe they will do another album with Kevin since they jammed with him recently.  I don’t hate the album but it makes my head hurt to see people say it’s their best album in ten years. I’ll still buy the album to support them and keep them touring to my town  Sorry for all the yelling but they are one of my all time favorites , now when is the Haze Edition goin up on shoxop?<span class="emoji-outer emoji-sizer"><span class="emoji-inner" style="background: url(chrome-extension://immhpnclomdloikkpcefncmfgjbkojmh/emoji-data/sheet_apple_32.png);background-position:59.9882491186839% 67.97884841363103%;background-size:5418.75% 5418.75%" data-codepoints="1f605"></span></span>

The new album drops a GIANT DOOKIE on everything they've done the last 18yrs let alone 10. And if you want to call it a Pinkus album then mad props to him for giving Melvins and their sissy fans a good kick up the ass.
Oh and if Steve is too cheesey for you moaning toilet ghosts.....then STOP taking everything so's only rock'n'roll.....go drop some acid and see the world for what it truly is....people being in too much of a rush and taking everything WAAAAAAAY too seriously.

To each their own no, not even close. I'm a complete Melvins nut and this record does basically nothing for me outside of Don't Forget To Breathe. Not enough Buzz and too many covers would be my biggest complaints.

Considering this is Pinkus's farewell record ostensibly
I hope not! I like him in the band. Certainly far more than Steven and actually more than having Jared return too.

For live shows, I easily prefer Steven over Pinkus but kinda can't stand Steven's songs and lead vocals so far (both studio and live). For me, Jared blows them both out of the water both live and in the studio. I definitely miss the Big Business aided live configuration.

Just heard the majority of this album (bar 'Flamboyant Duck'). Prior to listening i was on the fence of if to buy it or not. Thankfully i have to say this is actually quite a solid record. 'Don't Forget To Breathe' in particular is an undeniably cool song and the album highlight. 'Graveyard is a little slower than the live version i was used to hearing and loved but still good. Hey, perhaps from now on Jeff Pinkus should write ALL Melvins material!!

Easy now, let's not get crazy.

At a Crawl!?

Let It All Be!?

Ooh yeah, pumped on potentially seeing them play Let It Be live again. Don't know if I've seen them do that one since they toured for the early 00's trilogy of albums on Ipepac. Love the end of that song after the couple minute noise trip out in the middle of the track but know they won't perform that part of the track unfortunately.

Melvins Discussion / Re: Good interview!

That is a good interview. Thanks for sharing.

There's an ongoing debate here about our Confederate statues. Some people want them torn down, others want more context or more diverse statues put up.

I think you should tear them all down and put up 90-foot high statues of Malcolm X. and Ice Cube. I'm totally fine with that. I'm in. Or a hologram of Tupac that's constantly turned on.

Just got my Kickstarter funded Blu-Ray in the mail a few days ago. Looking forward to watching the second disc (since it'll be new to me). Watched most of the first disc earlier today; I had already seen it in the theatre and streaming on Vimeo over the last year. Audio levels for the interviews is still quite inconsistent and there is also some weird audio/video pausing and glitching a handful of times (not horrible but a hair distracting when it happens). I would have appreciated more live and behind the scenes recording studio stuff as it feels quite heavy on dialogue, but it is still worth seeing for any Melvins fan. Probably won't reel in any new fans though.

« on: August 20, 2017, 11:56:11 PM »
If anyone has an extra ticket for the Santa Cruz show, I'd love to buy it.

I went to this show. Melvins put on a decent set, though not my favorite. Definitely didn't help that it was like 100 degrees out and sunny/middle of the day, with minimal to no shade. They played: Sacrifice, It's Shoved, Anaconda, Queen, The Kicking Machine, I Want To Hold Your Hand (Beatles), a newer song that Steven sang, and maybe a few more. The setlist up on seems completely wrong (or I was way more fucked up than I think).

Super disappointing that Patton was having tons of sound issues with both his microphone and sampler for the Fantomas performance. Just this overwhelming, nasty digital distortion that was super frustrating to try and listen through. Still enjoyable overall; very cool to see Buzz and Dale kill those fucking bonkers Fantomas tracks. Really kind of gave me Fantomas blue balls too though; would love to see them again with no sound issues. Credit to Patton who shouted out the Giants super hard during their rendition of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" in front of two noted Dodgers fans (Buzz and Dale) and a Souther California crowd that was likely predominantly Dodger fans as well.

I'm not much of a Clutch guy but they put on a decent show I guess. Didn't do a whole hell of a lot for me.

Primus was excellent and got the crowd really in to the music for the first time of the day I'd say. Helped that the sun had finally gone down and shadows were falling as well. Good collection of some of their more popular tracks both old and new.

Tool were absolutely awesome. Super tight and heavy with the best (and trippiest visuals) I've ever seen for a concert. Much more entertaining than the last time I saw them over 10 years ago.

I'll be hitting the Glen Helen show with Tool and Primus on 6/24 and then the GAMH date in SF on 7/10. Good chance I end up attending either the San Jose or Santa Cruz one as well.

Got a kick starter email, here's the rundown:

- should be streaming on vimeo for backers soon with download to follow.
- DVD set for the end of may. Pre-orders set but backers get the goods first. Disc 1 = documentary; Disc 2 = 2014 live set, bonus live & interview clips; Disc 3 = unseen interviews, live stuff, bloopers

To add to this, I'm pretty sure the third disc is solely for those who paid quite a bit extra for the box set version of this release.
