I'll admit it.   a little something is lost in the cookie cutter set.  it takes some of the emotion out of it.    it turns more into "put the piece in the part... put the piece in the part... put the piece in the part... put the piece in the part" and less into an artistic expression.     that being said.. they're the professionals.  I'm an idiot.  so I'll shut up and rock out.

Not that it's ever going to happen, but i think Melvins should ditch this same set every night of a tour arrangement. Change things up a little, add a few rarely seen songs here and there. I could understand if they were a new act with only a couple of albums to fall back upon, but they've got 30+ years of songs!!
i understand that they play the same set every night, in the view that they want to deliver the best possible quality every night.

but i also agree with your point. they should do what you said and market it as a "special" tour. jules would need to see every date  :lol:

for a band like Melvins it works better keeping the same setlist every night. especially when you change bassist

Some bands love that and swear by it.

The Grateful Dead
Phish
Ween

You see a pattern here?

Melvins aren't that type of band.

There's also this band called Shellac and was another called Fugazi but....

Well good for you. I don't listen to those bands. Just a making a generalization.

Didn't like it too much. Nasally voices. Treble-y guitar.

This is correct.  Primus is one of my favorite bands and it's really obvious when they're playing a song that they don't play as often.  I was excited to get Prof Nuttbutter the first time I saw them live because they only played it about 4 times on that tour.  Les fucked up a few times and the band didn't sound nearly as tight as their Seas of Cheese set that they had been playing every night.

Same with The Melvins on their Endless Residency album.  Houdini live sounds tight because they play it a lot but there are lots of mistakes on Stoner Witch live.  It might be disappointing if you see them a lot on the same tour, or if you look at the set list in advance, but the way The Melvins currently do things is what makes their live set so tight and great.

Nobody has really mentioned the Napalm Death set so far. Any thoughts on how this band is doing? Is the Mitch Harris replacement adequate?

To an extent I'd lump in Primus in this same boat though it's more a few of the same songs every night with a rotating set of songs and the occasional three song encore.

The replacement guitarist does a great job. Barney gives him shit about his dreads and being a noob etc.

I liked the set, typical Napalm Death, songs from all periods of the group.
