Melvins Discussion / Re: New Double Album: A Walk With Love and Death

Both new songs rule. The noize/ soundtrack side should be at least as good as the 4 songs on POTRE that I don't like so much and his guitar tone is great these days, studio and live. Very excited for this.  :excited: :excited: :excited:

Surprised to see people other than parenthesis-guy complaining about this one. Still really looking forward to it if only because I feel like I'm going to get more out of the ambient/industrial/noise half than a lot of people here are. People going "what's the point" must not be aware of Throbbing Gristle, their genre, and/or Buzz' fanboy status.

Are they really releasing stuff with more frequency than before? Other than the gap when Rutmanis fucked them, it seems like it's always been this way. But I do agree that they do seem to be doing some relatively samey stuff lately going for that younger audience and tour opportunities, and like others I wish Buzz would at least change his guitar tone.

Melvins Show Reviews / Re: Melvins - Glen Helen Amphitheater, San Bernardino

I went to this show. Melvins put on a decent set, though not my favorite. Definitely didn't help that it was like 100 degrees out and sunny/middle of the day, with minimal to no shade. They played: Sacrifice, It's Shoved, Anaconda, Queen, The Kicking Machine, I Want To Hold Your Hand (Beatles), a newer song that Steven sang, and maybe a few more. The setlist up on setlist.fm seems completely wrong (or I was way more fucked up than I think).

Super disappointing that Patton was having tons of sound issues with both his microphone and sampler for the Fantomas performance. Just this overwhelming, nasty digital distortion that was super frustrating to try and listen through. Still enjoyable overall; very cool to see Buzz and Dale kill those fucking bonkers Fantomas tracks. Really kind of gave me Fantomas blue balls too though; would love to see them again with no sound issues. Credit to Patton who shouted out the Giants super hard during their rendition of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" in front of two noted Dodgers fans (Buzz and Dale) and a Souther California crowd that was likely predominantly Dodger fans as well.

I'm not much of a Clutch guy but they put on a decent show I guess. Didn't do a whole hell of a lot for me.

Primus was excellent and got the crowd really in to the music for the first time of the day I'd say. Helped that the sun had finally gone down and shadows were falling as well. Good collection of some of their more popular tracks both old and new.

Tool were absolutely awesome. Super tight and heavy with the best (and trippiest visuals) I've ever seen for a concert. Much more entertaining than the last time I saw them over 10 years ago.

How close am I here? 


You can be my little 
We can do si do
If I make you do this
know that I say Some
If you shed some madness
I will make you glow
when I missed your birthday
Know its all for you

Count on little Brother
He will be the sword
Offer the protection
When they go too far
When they all start leading
still the one who kills
I am your reflection
we are always here

When all these things come true
When all these things come true
When all these things come true
When all these things come true

I heard Fantomas had microphone issues, which is too bad. On another note, when did Patton start looking so old?

yeah..i didn't notice his hair were turning grey

His hair went grey pretty quick so suggests he was probably putting a bit of boot polish in it.
