I'd be majorly surprised if the answer to that is anything other than - "no, not really". I imagine it falls in line with how Basses Loaded and A Walk With... sound.

It's a good thing they're covering that Beatles song because those guys were the "worst musicians ever"
Just imagine what Quincy Jones would say about Melvins!!

Interviewer: So, what do you think of the Melvins?

QJ: The Melvins? Nice guys. They helped faked the moon landing with Stevie Wonder. Gene Krupa taught them everything they know after he shot the governor of Mississippi and had to get plastic surgery to change his face. He was laying low. Say, do you like Brazilian music?

The Pinkus EP i recall it being named.

Which is basically what this seems to be. Five new songs and three covers is a bit of a cheeky release IMO.

Remember though, Lysol was only three new songs and three covers, and that one's obviously endured.

Knowing that these cover songs were live staples for a while does make it seem a little like they threw this one together a bit. That Buzz had a few songs written and they simply just decided to record the covers they had been playing to fill out an LP.

i think that's exactly what happened

At this point in their careers I do not think they just throw things together.

I think it depends what we mean when we say "thrown together". I didn't mean they just come up with this record on the fly in 10 minutes. Obviously the material will be considered and executed to their intentions. However i doubt it was deliberated upon or worked over for too long either. Now, of course a band don't need to meditate upon their new album nor does it need to be a rigorously tough process to record a record. But i think we all know what i meant.

I find myself intrigued by the 'Stop Moving To Florida' track. I wonder whether it is simply one cover song followed by the next like they performed it live, or an amalgamation of the two that may switch back and forth somehow.

Im as impatient as the next guy when it comes to things like this, but in a way i don't want to hear a song prior. That ruined A Walk With... a little for me since we got to hear Christ Hammer so long before the release. Same applies to Basses Loaded and the EP's. When you finally get the record it loses some of that coherence or flow if you are too familiar with a song. Ideally i like to hear the whole thing front to back in one go. But at the same time i'll gladly take a stream of a song too!

Yep, it's a temptation hard not to give in but very rewarding if you can control yourself.

Stop Moving To Florida up on Bandcamp.


Sounds really good! Very thick sounding, vocals are kick ass.  =D>



Let’s get it straight, Howard Tate wrote "Stop".





Howard fell on some hard times but pulled it together.

Yes. I was surprised that it's Steve who takes the prominent role with the vocals on the 'Stop' part of the track. I liked Pinkus' tones on the live tour versions they did so i expected it would be him instead. Personally i consider Jeff to have a better voice than Steve, still it sounded great. I think this one really benefited from them playing it live and knowing the song so well. I could leave out the 'Moving To Florida' part of the song. I never liked that one. Buzz sounds retarded. Oddly in a way this whole track reminds me of 'The Water Glass' - a rocking first part followed by an ill judged, emphasis upon spoken words second section.
