Completely missed this, was it only available physically?
I see some youtube rips but I'm looking for an official digital release.

Otisserie filmed the whole thing on his Instagram live, you can rewatch it for 24 hours

I thought the bandcamp is a redemption for physical purchases only.

That would make sense...

Would it? I collect vinyl too but I would primarily like to hear what this thing sounds like and that doesn't seem to be the purpose of it

They're playing it quite safe with these setlists. This lineup could explore so much more material and the third bass slot is a Three Men And A Baby no-brainer if I ever saw one. Of course these are deep cuts but I do wish they were less rigid with the sets sometimes, especially in this case playing back to back shows at the Casbah.

Who knows what the song is after POTRE, it could have been an unfinished/unreleased work in progress or just something to play in between

They played that during the Cameron Jamie shows, placed after Pigs just like they did here. Great riff. Might have been a glimpse of future work at the time, before the BB lineup added a new dynamic to things.

Such a drag. Wish someone cool would just scan it and upload it so us peons could see.

I have it, though it's in a storage space right now. I'll get to scanning it when I have access next (approx. Jan/Feb).
Feel free to remind me if I go silent on the matter.

Melvins Discussion / Re: Buzzo's Greatest Guitar Solos
« on: November 08, 2018, 05:03:31 PM »
Apart from playing solos, I really think Buzz is one of the most important and influential songwriters of all time.


Let it all be, is an easy example.

The guitar solo in that is one of my personal favourites...it really is a few simple little magic lines that meet the listener half way, it's very pleasant and friendly with a really good wah pedal tone, it's very subtle and effective...nothing but *poof* magic, He's Just letting the notes and rhythms do their own thing naturally and It's very passive and simple, It reminds me of some of the leads off the Jeff Wayne's war of the world soundtrack somehow... It doesn't Jump out at you and demand your attention It really lulls you into its own tiny little world suggestively and keeps a happy little groove, It leaves room for your mind to fill in the rest subconsciously.

Buzz has something more than most guitar players have apart from technical ability, and that is in the lyrics and writing within the context of the band, which really is the more important dynamic to focus on rather than wanking out a solo on every single track.


100%. Jew Bow Flower Head is another example of that tasteful interplay you described
