I feel like every Melvins album is made with a specific purpose or agenda.
Agreed! That definitely does seem to be the case more so lately. Buzz has an idea and then they run with it. Initially i wasn't too sure about all that, but now im okay with this process. It makes for some interesting changes/dynamics. Fun too!

But, could even Melvins put out 13 good albums in a year? I'm not a Mars Volta fan at all- is that OR-L stuff good at all... or is it just quantiity?
I haven't listened to those Omar albums so i don't know. I know he tends to record all the time and then just puts the recordings on the shelf to be released at some point. So i suppose it's not quite true that they are rushed or recorded back to back or brand new.

As far as Melvins i think they are somewhat the same. It does seem that they record quite a bit of stuff and then that just sits around waiting for Ipecac to decide when it's best to release it. So i presume the band do have some material in the vaults ready to go. The Void Manes collab, the 50 Melvins Lite unreleased songs and (unless it was a joke from Pinkus) we know there's that Rolling Stones covers album 'Sticky Feet' too. So that's potentially 3 there! However no i don't think Melvins could release 13 records in a year, but i was just using that as an example. I could imagine them putting out 4 or 5 though if they have that backlog of material. Whether it would be good or not, well who knows. Like Buzz said he could put out a record once every 2 or 3 years but he would have still recorded it quickly and exactly the same. Bands back in the day used to put out 2 records a year sometimes so why not now!

All good points- I sort of forgot that it appears they basically have 4 or 5 albums recorded already, as you point out.

Also, I back the 2 albums a year standard, as you say. Bowie, Judas Priest, Queen and others put out their best material in that time frame.

I feel like this might be related to that “history of rock music” thing that buzz has been talking about for the last few years. He certainly hasn’t mentioned it recently though.
Well, we'll always have "In the Air Tonight." Will that be your most enduring song?
You know, that song won't lie down. It just won't go away. I mean, there's a Mike Tyson moment associated with it now. It's just bizarre. I guess it has a bit of mystery, a lot of atmosphere, and the drums coming in, pinning people to the wall.

I know. That seems to have been mentioned a couple of times by Steven and his brother and then nothing else heard of it whatsoever. From Buzzo's comments in the recent podcasts, either that has long been completed and is sitting on the shelf or has been a totally abandoned idea. Doesn't appear like it is coming anytime soon anyway. The 1983 one sounds much more in their immediate thoughts.

They were sound checking with Brown Sugar a lot.
