Super bummed about this and yes, I certainly wouldn't think it had anything to do with either Buzz or Dale.

Yeah, sounds like the whole tour was cancelled. Got my cancellation email for the SF show this morning. Super bummed.

Never found the two to be especially similar and I've probably listened to each over a hundred times.

Saw it a few nights ago in SF. It was pretty good but gotta say I was a bit disappointed overall. Would have liked to see more extended live clips and maybe studio clips as well. The audio recording/editing of the interviews was very inconsistent which was a little distracting. Production quality overall could have been better IMO.

I'd give it something in the B-/C+ range. Possibly unrealistic expectations because of the subject matter.

Spotted Adam Jones of Tool at the Saturday show. He watched most of the Melvins set from a staircase on King Buzzo's side of the stage accessible by the band and their friends only.

Apparently Bill Ward of Black Sabbath was in the house on Monday.

They only played the Monday show which I wasn't able to attend.

This could be a different question if you were to ask: Who's the better live player?

Pinkus was badass last summer.

Stevie not so much.. he should give up those leg kicks on stage.
I feel basically opposite as you do about these two. Pinkus was easily my least favorite bassist I've seen perform with The Melvins while McDonald is in my top 3 (Warren, Rutmanis, McDonald).

Is it just me or is "The Decay of Lying" fucking amazing? Best track in years.

Oh....it's definitely amazing; stomps ass live too. One of my more favorite modern Melvins tracks (along with A Growing Disgust).

Saw the first two of their Troubadour shows in L.A. last weekend. McDonald's bass playing and stage presence are both really good. I liked his random emphatic shouting in to the mic he did here and there too.

I just witnessed two nights in a row of Steven McDonald on bass. The energy, tone and riffage he brings is stellar. Watch out - in my opinion this is the best lineup I have seen live! (the only lineups that I have never seen live are the Buzz/Mike/Lukin and Buzz/Dale/Joe lineups.)



this is the impression ive been getting, but didnt want to jump to conclusions... all i know is i watch every melvins video i can find, ive seen a lot, theyre mostly all in line with eachother, and then i watched the eye flys and suddenly it hit me like BAM this is different in the best way possible!

yeah. im pumped.

I hear you there! Just WAIT until you witness Eye Flys with McDonald on bass - it is taken to a whole new level!!!!!

Def my favorite live rendition of the song I've heard yet (and I've seen them live dozens of times).

Saturday and Sunday were great as well. Went both days, enjoyed Sunday more. Though I was a little disappointed that they played the exact same set each of the first two night (and I missed out on Teri Gender Bender's guest spot on Monday). Here's some video I took from both:

This is literally the best album they have put out in years. Much better than their last one.
I strongly disagree and would go as far as saying every album they've released in the last decade outside of Chicken Switch is superior to it.
