My first Melvins show was finally put online
« on: November 22, 2018, 03:16:11 AM »
Sitting here with my jaw dropped to the floor, and in disbelief that my 15 year old self was in the room. Dale is on fire the whole night. Best Night Goat ever. And Specimen is so heavy it made me nauseous.
What amazes me the most is seeing the actual full 2 hour, 3 set evening and how different the vibe is compared to now. Present Melvins is a tight machine. This was a looser band. And those first two sets are really unique in Melvins history. Since these shows they have continued taking big risks, but I don't think they have ever been more bravely vulnerable than they were here.

I'm curious what others think.



Setlist:

Set 1: Experimental (buzz on bass, mark on guitar)
Planet Destructo
Eye Flys
Lacrimosa
June bug
Sky Pup

Set 2 : Semi-Quiet
At the Stake
Cow
Tipping the lion
skin horse
goose freight train
captain pungent
Berthas
Cottonmouth

Set 3 : Heavy
Revolve
sweet willy rollbar
Road bull
buck owens
the bloat
the bit
night goat
specimen
the Green manalishi
Queen
Antitoxidote
Sacrifice
Also melvins is gay cuz some of their songs are just noise, i tell you this so you all don't buy albums and find out only one two songs is good on them.

Saw them the night before in Seattle.  One of my favorite shows ever.

Good time to see them.  That's one amazing set list.

Get the comments about them being looser back then. Also think at that time they were far more drum centric of a band than they are now.

Interesting that were playing Fleetwood Mac a couple years before the trilogy as well.

that must have been mind blowing to see. something from gpt or ozma era in the 'heavy' set would have made the ultimate setlist.
Wish I could find my first Melvins show, 20 Oct 2006 in Baltimore.

I remember when Basses Loaded came out, Buzz saying that it used to be played or improvised during soundchecks around that time but i too was surprised to see they actually performed it in a gig setting.
