Melvins Discussion / The Melvins' best "Guitar" album
« on: December 05, 2014, 07:29:26 PM »
Seems like a weird topic, I suppose--especially since the songwriter is the guitarist and most likely writes with that instrument in mind...BUT I feel as though some of the Melvins' releases are not really as aimed at gratifying the air guitarist in you as others (Bride Screamed Murder is one of those releases imo). Which of their many albums really hits that need?

For my vote--I'm going with either Maggot or Eggnog. Heaviest most scathing guitar tunes in their deck. Hog Leg alone can have the trophy, but I have to be fair to AMAZON, See How Pretty See How Smart, and Antioxidote.

That's funny! When I was working at a butcher shop in the nineties,
my boss would freak out about all the blooms and bleeps in my music.
I was allowed to pick all of the music we played when we were closed and
preparing to open or cleaning up at night. When I would play God Lives Underwater,
he would always think that the industrial noise between songs was a refrigeration unit taking a shit. He would freak out, "Oh shit! That sounds like the compressor for the big walk in unit!".
He finally learned.  :D

lol Aural Terrorism, that!

So I was making my daily commute from Rochester MN to La Crosse WI, and I had this weird moment where Manky came on and I was sure that my transmission was going out (recall the rising sound prior to the start of the actual song?)--and since it's only been a week since I coughed up $650 to fix the ignition, I nearly started to weep with relief when I recognized that indeed it was my stereo and not my deathbox shitting the bed on me. I've not been that relieved in a really long time.

But, yeah, Maggot is probs my fave Melvins record, for what it's worth...

20 minutes of pure awesome. Listening to this right now. Really loved seeing them play these tunes live in 2011.
