The highlight for me is maybe I'm amused, new melvins territory once again. Beer Hippie is good as well, like this record a lot. Could do without shaving cream but I actually could listed to ballgame again and again

After listening to the 5 first, the opening I like, a lot, 2, 3, 4 is ok and the 5th, Captain Come Down, is a real ballbuster!
.....listening......listening......
War Pussy is the next highlight, riffs from another world!

Is it just me, or does Buzz have som Ozzy Osbourne over his vocals in some of the tracks, that is Ozzy-likeness. I`m sure this is unintentional, but I like it.

This record will work like a blast live and on my car stereo!


For some reason Shaving Cream is not with on this stream:

The Basses Loaded CD is now in my possession. Just think, i could listen to this and rip up the artwork before most of you guys have even got your hands on it!!! Photo incoming at some point if i can be bothered to do so.

Flutter, your level of Melvins fandom disturbs me! Is there anything they have put out you DON'T like??? Having said that i wondered recently if you appreciate a lot of their recent material because you are a big Ween fan. That's an act i just can't get into personally because i hate "goofy" music. Where i disapprove of that stuff you perhaps like it. Hence why you like Shaving Cream maybe?

Im not sure but i think that happened because i used a tablet to take the photo. I don't own a camera or a cell phone so that's the ONLY device i have that can capture an image. Some incapability to it or such.

In the liner notes it says "backing vocals by Kristy Joy" who's that? Im sure i've read that name before somewhere. Jared's wife or something perhaps? I wonder which song/s have the backing vocals.

Another thing is last night i watched that recent interview with Buzz, Dale and Steven and Buzz says that the songs on Basses Loaded where effectively sitting around. That they realised they had some of these songs recorded with different bass players and decided to put it out as an album. A similar thing happened with Everybody Loves Sausages too. I wonder if this is the shape of things to come from now on for the band. Simply recording new songs and then making them fit together as and when they wish to be considered a new record. I did think the album was a bit disjointed which now makes sense but at the same time i think there is something neat about that. About the concept of a compilation, an arrangement of, what you could term, odds and ends.


is Coady credited on that song too?
Going by the liner notes, yes Coady AND Jared on Choco Plumbing.

I'll take 2 albums like this a year. Don't care how they play in long form. I mix them up on tapes anyway.

That's the girl that does Weekly Random. She bad Buzz and Kevin on in the past.

Ha! That's a surprise. I knew i had heard that name somewhere. I wonder what her connection with the band is outside of the interviews.

I tired a search but it wasn't very forthcoming. There's a lot of people with that name apparently.
