oh, also-- does anyone know why buzz stopped using les paul guitars?
He said he prefers the light weight of the EGC's and the thin necks. He talks about that and more here.



hmm, ok, fair enough.  i still think les pauls sound better, personally, but it seems that buzzo can't quite give em up totally himself, what with having the ECG setup like an LP and all  :)

I agree, the saying is true...Only a Gibson is good enough! I think Les Pauls are heavy too...that's why I use an SG. In Buzz's defense I think he's rocked a les paul long enough where he's entitled to a change at this point. I don't dislike his current tone, it is bright and cuts but I do miss some of the more chunky tone of the Les Paul. When it comes down to it tho, I just like hearing Buzz play guitar....any guitar! :lol:

When it comes to the live show, I'd say Buzz' tone is better than ever. I can't say I've noticed a huge difference between his sound with a Gibson and an EGC though.
i can, but it changed when he went from using tube amps to solid state and dod pedals. the guitars will add to that brightness/thinness. plexi will never have the sustain the pauls had, but hey, its his gig, not ours. and i think he still uses the pauls in the studio. there's a couple of pics of them. those guitars just can't handle the road like a plastic and metal guitar.

I figured I would start a thread for the new masterpiece since there isn't one yet. Personally, this is my favorite Melvins album since H.A.T. and I hope they release more under the Melvins Lite moniker in the future. Hopefully Trevor Dunn will be a permanent fixture in the band.

Still not heard it...

(((O)))

The other day I had freak puke in the car and I was pulling out of a parking lot. There were cars parked to my left and right. I turned on the car and the CD resumed where I left it. It was right at the end of Worm Farm Waltz with the cool noice outro. As I was pulling out I imagined that the music was actually the sound of my car scraping against the cars next to me.  :lol:
:lol: :lol:
I can so vividly imagine that too.

I-ba-cack records  :lol:

Where's he getting his information on the Melvins not getting royalties on Houdini?

That review was unintentionally hilarious.

Personally, I would totally dig a sequence of albums that goes one four-piece, one three-piece, one four-piece, one three-piece. Ect, ect, ect.

Ooh hell yeah, that sounds good  =P~

Technically he is correct, Trevor Dunn is the new bass player for Tomahawk at least according to their Facebook page.
Oh, and here is a small sample of one of the songs on the upcoming album, "Oddfellows"

I hate to even admit I read Pitchfork from time to time, but no suprise they give Freak Puke a 6.7 out of 10.
Chicken Switch is still the highest rated Melvins album (with a 7.8 score) according to the geniuses over at Pitchfork.

Not really surprising since they gave HAT a 5.6

I can't help but find some Melvins humour in that

I think we should put it in a jar labeled 'melvins'

Technically he is incorrect because he says "has been in a lot of bands" and he shows a picture of the first Tomahawk album.

It looks like two people who follow that guy think that Stag was their last solid album.   :-s
