Fuckin Less Paul, whaddya think?


Nah I read some things and saw some things from the King and it was specified to be one of those Fender... Mustang, Jaguar, or Jazz Master...one of those.

T'was a Mustang indeed.
I wonder if he still uses a bunch of different guitars in the studio these days.

As far as I know he's sticking with the EGC guitars.
Welcome to the board, by the way :)
My favorite thing about Melvins is the goofy personality | These guys suck and Buzz is a pretentious hipster dork | This sounds nothing like Metallica. | Dales Dad was a drum, its in his blood. | King Buzzo's hair probably holds a lotta secrets | what the fuck is a stee? | Melvins as a way of life

On the road, yes.  In the studio he has said he'll use many different kinds of guitars.

I think the only album where it explicitly stated he only used EGC guitars was Freak Puke.
Hail, not fail.

Weasel dust would almost make a decent band name.

The band Buzzov*en is not named after Buzz and the song Oven from Ozma:

One more question: what does the name Buzzov*en mean, anyway? I read two explanations: (1) it was a melding of "buzzed often"; (2) it means "buzz oven," like a cooker.
It's two words I put together that I thought sounded like a cool name for a band. No deep meaning.

He would be a fantastic cameo. Especially with a sneer and a flash of that gold tooth!

What do the Melvins have to do with McDonald's? Was it a poster I can't remember?

Melvins are name-dropped in Felix Van Groeningen's latest film, Beautiful Boy. A co-worker saw it last night and said there was a Melvins poster on Shef's wall and vulture.com says we get to see Melvins albums on his shelf. The Maggot is on his wall at 1:39 in this trailer:

Puredigitalsilence were a South Korean electronic band, named after the Melvins track on Prick. There's an article about them here and you can listen to them here

Excerpt:
In 2016, Kim Changhee, one of the co-founders of local experimental electronic music collective and record label dingn\dents—and a journeyman musician in his own right—introduced Cambou to an extremely rare album called Circumfluence by Puredigitalsilence. “Kim [Changhee] has been in IDM groups like Damirat and Toxicbiasfleurivy,” Cambou explains. “He’s quite low-key but he runs WATMM [We Are The Music Makers], the longest-running electronic music event in Seoul, and when he was young he was quite into the indie music scene. He found this album, liked it for many years, and later on got friendly with the band members.”

“I come from a psych music background,” Cambou reflects. “When I was younger, I was really into the shoegaze end of psych. Circumfluence combined the classic druggy shoegaze feel with a very modern and contemporary ambient sound. It’s very finely tuned and super DIY, but extremely emotional.” He had to reissue it.

Puredigitalsilence was a collective of experimental musicians led by Choi Joonyong and Hong Chulki, and named in reference to a Melvins song. In 1997, Choi and Hong, then playing together as Astronoise (one of the country’s pioneering noise music acts), teamed up with Yang Yongjun and Jeong Eunju. Using the sounds of U.K. bands like My Bloody Valentine and Spacemen 3 as a jumping-off point, they folded what we can retrospectively view as ambient and drone-synth elements into the mix, and emerged with sprawling epics that often stretched well over 10 minutes.
