Do MELVINS pay homage to PINK FLOYD on BOOTLICKER?
« on: October 18, 2010, 05:46:06 PM »
I have been listening to this album a lot lately.  The more I hear the last song, the more it sounds like an homage to PINK FLOYD's ANIMALS album.  The guitar on PRIG sounds just like the guitar on PIGS ON THE WING. The snoring before it begins sounds just like the pig oinking noise on PIGS (3 DIFFERENT ONES). Plus the name is PRIG, which is the word PIG with an R in there. "RIG" means to set up something beforehand, and it would make sense, like they set up the similarities on purpose to pay respect to the songwriting of FLOYD 20 years before.  Anyone else notice this or am I just being retarded?

Good luck with that  :D
Well, we'll always have "In the Air Tonight." Will that be your most enduring song?
You know, that song won't lie down. It just won't go away. I mean, there's a Mike Tyson moment associated with it now. It's just bizarre. I guess it has a bit of mystery, a lot of atmosphere, and the drums coming in, pinning people to the wall.

Isn't this Pink Floyd homage enough for you homeboy?

Someone mentioned that the sound on Bootlicker is not a pig noise but Buzzo snoring. This is Melvins lore and I like to believe it's true.

The guitar on PRIG sounds just like the guitar on PIGS ON THE WING.

I definitely hear this.

Thank you eponymous. And yes, I know its someone snoring, but it sounds like the pigs oinking on the Pink Floyd album.  I feel like its just a really creative, melvins-style homage.

Its impossible to listen to that song and NOT think of Pink Floyd!

I was listening to Prig the other day and I was thinking it was a really underrated Melvins song.  I do hear Pink Floyd and it wouldn't surprise me if that's exactly what they were trying to do.  They wrote 3 albums of material during that time after all.

I heard that if you play The Bootlicker simultaneously with the film The Wizard of Oz...                   or no, that was something else.

a while ago i was listening to the spotlight kid by beefheart and was thinking this might have served as a big inspiration for the bootlicker vibe as well.

You're thinking of "Debbie Does Dallas".

It really syncs up when Up The Dumper comes on.

I hear some floydian influences on the last track. Animals is my favorite Floyd album.
