Melvins Discussion / Re: new Melvins interview
« on: August 24, 2018, 02:36:24 AM »
Speaking in a broader sense, for me when it comes to interviews i prefer serious inquiry and not tomfoolery and japes as is often the case with Melvins interviews. Something that bugs me about that is that even when someone interviews the band in a serious manner, they will fuck around and get all silly rendering the interview itself pointless. I kinda hate Buzz and Dale for that every time. I want serious musicians God damn it! As a fan i want insight and revelation into their music not stupid in-jokes and attempts to belittle or make fun of the interviewer.

I'm not sure what you mean here. I can point you to a couple dozen Melvins interviews from the last year and beyond that seriously discuss what they're up to and into. Matter of fact, most interviews are the exact same. Dipping into their love of classic rock, how they package and distribute music, their influences, John Huston comes up pretty much every time... To be honest, I can often anticipate the answer when the question is asked as I think most of us here could. Buzz especially has a lot of go-to lines for those types of questions. And if you're really looking for dry and humourless responses, don't hold your breath for the friggin Melvins to give you that. Also, they have mellowed out way more these days - need I remind you of the "INDEEEEEEED" radio session?


Anyway, Courtney - this was cool! I hope you guys can churn out more of this stuff in the future. I agree on the Neil Hamburgerisms but what the hell, you could be biting a way less interesting style.

Not a great song choice honestly


Bullshit.

I love Edgar, I'm just saying the guitar work isn't what makes the song for me. I think it relies more on the ensemble and especially the writing, so this left it kind of bare and uninteresting if we are supposed to focus on the riffs. On top of that, the sound was trash.

A history of drunks from the Freak Puke tour. There is an upright bass solo right in the middle of it and then it just picks right back up where it left off.  That version is top notch  :)
... and Captain Pungent.....and Bertha's..... and Shevil.....

"Charmicarmicat" off live at third man was pretty epic. Did they play that elsewhere around that time?

Yeah, that was fantastic. They did it in the Eggnog portion of the Endless Residency tour.
I caught them at Festsaal Kreuzberg Berlin that tour, one of the greatest Melvins experiences to date. (With Melvins Lite being in town a couple days prior)

Proshot footage from Paris (they opened with it):

I liked the change they made to Set Me straight when I first saw that live.

Right there with you, Set Me Straight has gone places. Especially with the Cream DCH cover just being part of it now.

Between 9th and thirteenth and 15th and 23rd where and what.....?

I'm guessing Berlin around the 10th.

Oscar, I think you really nailed it. I think that 2003 European festival is one of my favorite recorded Melvins performances all around, and you're right "The Bloat" destroys on there. Even better than the rendition on THE END from around the same time with Kevin.

I also love that Ottobar recording of the Melvins Lite. Their rendition of "Let It All Be" on that tour was also so strong.

Absolutely, I would say Shevil from that set is also definitive. Trevor really brings something unique to the group, I hope he comes back for more.

As far as a compilation, I'm down! That would be a fun deep-dive.

Good question, I think stuff like Anaconda has gone through so many lyrical perversions that the phrasing just hits harder at this point. Plus, they play it twice as fast by now, which really highlights how structurally weird but catchy that song is.

The Bloat with Kevin was perfect

You mentioned Eye Flys, the versions with Trevor to me are definitive. They truly played it the way it's supposed to be played. Lost my shit hearing this live.

These picks might not be that crazy in terms of their live arrangements, but I feel like they all captured an essential attitude/flavour/aggression/intricacy/whathaveyou.

I'm pretty sure that after the Fantômas shows in Russia, Buzz said he's cool on ever going back over there.
