There is always a need to make fun of people everywhere.
Im sorry for you that you think that.
Don't mind sadcorps, he's incapable of having a discussion about the melvins that doesn't involve 100 % pro melvins.

How was what ))))(((( said "anti-Melvins"?

I have taken part many discussions that are 100% anti-Melvins through my life. I just take the pro-Melvins side, because....well....I guess that is the side I am on?

And what in the fuck are you talking about?  :lol:

I think PepsiMike just meant this is turning into an ecumenical discussion in the Melvins section. I think that's what he meant. I'm a Dr Pepper guy, anyway.  :D

I always thought there was too and it definitely does sound like guitar but i distinctly remember either Buzz or Dale saying there wasn't any. Just made to sound like it was guitar. Still, it may just have been a joke thrown out flippantly in the interview. Who honestly knows with those guys!
Honestly i know none of you guys believe me but it was 100% mentioned as such in the interview. No guitars on the ALBUM. Just made to sound like it. I remember that because in reading it i thought "WTF!!". Now, the interviewer might have got the wrong impression from Buzz and wrote it incorrectly or simply made that up entirely or Buzz was joking but that WAS how it was written regardless. Admittedly it seems kinda odd to manipulate gear to make it sound like guitar when you could just use a guitar though.
You're probably confusing this with the Mike & The Melvins album.
Buzz said there was no almost guitar on that one – mostly just three basses.
Here's the interview: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/hear-a-track-from-melvins-thudtastic-basses-loaded-20160307
And here's the bit you're most probably thinking about:

Now, the funny thing about that is, and you can't really tell, there's almost no guitar on it. I'm doing all the low-end bass, Kevin's doing all the slide bass and Mike's doing all the stuff that sounds like guitar. The whole idea was it was going to be three bass players.

Has the cover art changed or is that just some outer sleeve design Ipecac are now using on the Bandcamp??

Yes, good point. Deleter.  :P

I already preordered the blue one, does this mean the red one is another edition or did they just Change it at the last minute? Seems strange that they'd Change it so late in the game.

I think it was just simply a change. Everywhere is listing/showing the newer design now as the album. Im sure you'll receive the red and purple one like on the Bandcamp page. Still, i'd like to know why it was altered too however im not disappointed since i think this newer version works a little better than the earlier blue and red design. Funny to think that in time the first cover will be forgotten and future fans will have never seen it or think it is a fake.

yes, the cover colours change is official:

Reading the Ipecac newsletter ""Basses Loaded" Pre-orders are now live!
Not only can you now pre-order your copy of the new Melvins album on CD and LP, but now for a short time get your hands on one of two limited edition bundles.

I ordered the Ipecac vinyl. Will it be colored vinyl or standard black?

Not to cause any panic, but my order for the Basses Loaded vinyl through Amazon has been delayed until July 1...

I ordered both plus hats from merch eye. I'm hoping they send the damn CD and hats on schedule.

I say, I'm hoping their snafu on vinyl production doesn't hinder my enjoyment Of sai CD and hats! :x

That is all.  O:)
