Melvins Discussion / Melvins set me straight boot of a boot
« Last post by PepsiMike on Today at 01:39:36 PM »
Expect to see a flood of set-me-straight bootleg7"s on white vinyl soon. They're boots of a boot. Son of boot.

Has any one else not received their purchases from the Leona Gallery show? Asking for the Psychology teacher.
You should have it by now.

Nah, Haze didn't like some of the posts and just deleted them.
Remember, it wasn't just posts that got deleted there for a while. Perhaps someone else was involved also but Haze definitely "removed" a few people here. Temporarily as it was of course.

2012. It was right at the time when 'The War On Wisdom' was previewed prior to The Bulls & The Bees EP. That was the song that garnered a bit of dislike here and kicked off proceedings.

I hated the song when the video came out and now I like it a lot. I like the rest of Bulls & The Bees better tho.

As far as i know, it WASN'T Dale (or Buzz) specifically. It was HAZE who did the deleting. Buzz and Dale just read the comments and decided to get HAZE in to the wield the banhammer. Also apparently discussions were had on whether to remove the board completely. Im still somewhat surprised they didn't pull the plug in the end.

What year was that? I come here since 2003 and I dont recall that period at all.

Melvins Discussion / Re: The first new Melvins album you purchased
« Last post by Pringles on June 21, 2018, 09:53:58 PM »
Since 1993, I was really into Nirvana and that kind of stuff. Then around the winter 2002, I was reading Come as you are, the biography of Nirvana, and in that book they were always talking about how Kurt Cobain and Kris Novosilic liked Black Flag and the Melvins and how the drummer of the Melvins was the drummer on Bleach, a Nirvana album I really liked at the time.

So I was curious, I went to the record store and asked the clerk if he had Melvins and Black Flag album. I came out of there with Black Flag - Damaged and Melvins Ozma cd, which come with Gluey Porch Treatment, but I did not know that.

So anyway, I came at home, unwrap Black Flag album, put in the my radio, Holy shit, this is sooooo goood. I was instantly hooked. Then I gave a try to Melvins Ozma. Like 5 minutes, the song Vile.

 BORING.

Skip to Oven with its weird tempo. What the Fu was that. How Nirvana liked that band? Skip to Creepy Smell. The weird intro. This suck. I wasted 20$. I want my money back.

I put Ozma on the shelve and from there I was only listening to Black Flag on repeat.

Then, a month later, I was going to sleep, so I wanted some background music while I was  sleeping and I remembered Vile from Ozma was really slow and kind of quiet, so I put the CD and hit Shuffle.

It landed on track 18 - Eye Flys....

...the next 4 minutes changed my life. At least musically.  It hit me like a freight train.

I remember that night I just went through Ozma and Gluey porch treatment, the whole 30+ tracks, 2 time in a row. I remember a strange feeling of sitting inside a huge empty dark warehouse, flowing on these oppressive riffs and trying to decipher the lyrics, and I loved every second of it.

The following month, I was just catching up on every Melvins album there was. It was right around the release of Hostile Ambiant Takeover.  I think I never listened to a Nirvana album since.
