DC. in an interview he did with premier guitar a while ago he claimed to have changed to the OBD-3 around the early 2000's.

The Compressor could be used for increased ridiculous sustain, especially with feed back stuff (ie Roman Bird Dog).
They've been using delays for ages, prior to the Aqua Puss he used Boss delays like the DD7 or DD4, they use delays for things like POTRE live.

I don't know how many of you have seen this. But it gives insight into the gear change in 2014.

Sesame Street Meat live? Now that sounds like fun! If anyone comes across a video of the performance or is kind enough to upload a recording of it, could you let us know thanks! It's a bit harder to get content like this in Australia, not all of us have the fortune of accessing NBC. Thanks in advance. :D

Track 07 - Sesame Street Meat
Lyrics:

Watch it boy with the large tin mouth
And they’re rolling, as it’s going south
They’re turning green
They left the oven open
Now it’s all up to me

Follow into an exit grave
Cos’ I got another life to save
I walk in circles
I scream and doubt
But I won’t believe, Ah!

You think I was a pain to mind?
And I’d like to see it from behind
I paint it green
I turn the other over
I won’t breathe and I will no law

I could wait for the paint to dry
So I told him how to get me high
I made them leave
I open train, but I cannot sell the lie

Several days I was left alone
But I won’t cos’ I will not hold
I walk in circles
I scream and doubt
Was confused, but never in light

Sometimes words that I cannot read
Any loose live , they can believe
I look at him, I hold at me
I won’t conform , and I will not speak

Track 01 - Bride Of Crankenstein
Lyrics:

What was that shit you sold me?
We both know, you should have told me
Got me spinning round the wrong way
It’s gonna be a long day

Spinning round the wrong way
Spinning round the wrong way

Don’t think I’m coming down soon
Can’t tell if that’s a full moon
Wanna know my opinion?
I don’t respect the thoughts of minions
I got a thought, it’s in this light bulb
It’s burning bright, the bitch is over though
Got me spinning round the wrong way
It’s gonna be a long day

Spinning round the wrong way
Spinning round the wrong way
 
(Solo section)

Spinning round the wrong way
Spinning round the wrong way

... Actually my mistake. They've been using the Distortion + and the Way Huge Aqua Puss since last year.
Here's an image from their show from 9:30 Club : http://meetsobsession.com/2013/music/photo-diary-the-melvins-live-at-the-930-club-in-washington-d-c/#_

As of last years 30th Anniversary tour he's been starting to use the Aqua Puss... I remember seeing a photo of it, but I can't find it right now. As far as I know, this is the first time i've seen him use the Distortion +

From what I can tell, the pedals are:
Boss OBD-3
Boss TU-3
MXR Dyna Comp
MXR Distortion +
Way Huge Aqua Puss

I'd interested to know what else was in his rack, besides the SUNN Beta Leads.

Yeah, no problem at all. Always interesting to see what other people think was said, as until he starts reprinting lyrics we'll never truly know.

Melvins Discussion / Re: melvins use CGCFAD tuning in some songs??
« on: July 12, 2014, 09:45:42 PM »
the G and D part forms a Bar chord together,
where as the C and G part forms it's own separate bar chord in the same way traditional Drop C does

If you try and play all three strings together like traditional Drop C, (CGC alltogether) you will get a dissonant chord. So it's recommended to keep the two chords separate (unless you like dissonance).

If you need more info on the Tuning Soundgarden also uses CGDfad for the song "Mailman".

also this tuning allow for the slides (9 volt Battery) in Charmicarmicat live to sound like a power chord, thus a more pleasant sound.

Also one thing to note is often the setlist will say CG for tuning. This means that the guitar is tuned to CGDgbe as opposed to CGCfad (which is traditional drop C).
As far as I know this is the way that Buzz tunes his guitar for all drop C songs.
And the new songs "Drunken Baby" and "Dark Brown Teeth" are definitely in this tuning.

Manky, LYSOL, AMAZON (known to be played in drop D also ie, live at belfort 2003), The Bloated Pope, Charmicarmicat (Recent live version), The Talking Horse, Evil New War God, The Water Glass, Pigs of the Roman Empire, City Dump and Graveyard (BHS) are all in CGDgbe tuning from the live footage i've found.
As far as Album material that's in a C tuning the list goes as follows, from what i can hear

Lysol: Hung Bunny Roman Bird Dog
The Maggot: all except The Green Manalishi
POTRE: all
A Senile Animal: The Talking Horse
The Bride Screamed Murder: the Water Glass, Evil New War God, I'll Finish You Off
Tres Cabrones: City Dump, American Cow
This Machine Kills Artists: Rough Democracy, Dark Brown Teeth, Laid Back Walking, Drunken Baby

... and probably more i've missed.
