I didn't remember that at ALL! I thought BB Melivns had NEVER played ANY material from HAT. But i just had a look and you are totally right. Back in 2010.

I know Amoeba better than I know my own house and he is browsing the "Spoken word/Comedy" section. Making sure Amoeba is well stocked with the latest Hedberg album, perhaps??
Is Ian back yet??

no slide bass.
Im sure whoever is the bassist at the time could reinterpret it though.

personally I agree. in fact, I think that would be a really good idea.   anybody who plays bass for MELVINS is likely going to be a unique musician.  let them do their thing.

I think some of those songs were written with Kevin or at least with Kevin in mind, that might be a factor. He definitely has writing credits on Foaming.

If you think about it, certain lineups have a couple of their own tunes that aren't really played with anyone else, and a lot of them do sound like there was more collaboration with the respective bass players.

Stuff like The Mechanical Bride, Dog Island, Pig House, The Talking Horse with Big Melvins
Bar-X, Buck Owens, etc. with Mark
Hold It In stuff with Pinkus
Melvins Lite stuff

This is one of the reasons why a Melvins supershow with all active members would be the shit! (as well as a logistical nightmare)

I'd love to see that go down even as a one-off deal even if it means everyone has to take turns with one or two songs at the most/is forced to use the same bass.
