The Bunk Up???

Splendid idea. Totally underrated gem!

throw in "Heater Moves and Eyes" just for the heck of it.

I'll see your Heater and I'll raise ya ... a Grin and a Jew Boy Flower Head; and just for the heck of it the second half of fucking Let It All Be and the first half of fucking Skin Horse!

Can we remove ... and then add ...

Sure there's a few I'd drop and a lot I'd add ... but all fantasy wish listing aside, that's a pretty sweet spread of cuts. Lots I'm looking forward to ... At The Stake!? Oh shit, I can hardly wait! The oppressive openness and haunted hanging space in that one gonna be all the that! Same deal with Hung/Roman and Shevil. Also looking forward to Pitfalls, Lovely Butterfly, Bloated Pope, The Bit, and With Teeth. But At The Stake, fuck yeah.
It was a big night out on the town for the Id and the Reptile Brain ...

like a brick wall, like a dream waiting to be!

Bandcamp shipping $7
Blixt shipping $18 😐
  I only paid 7 and change for shipping from Blixt 
…although now, I kinda wish I’d used bandcamp for the preorder, for some reason it hadn’t occurred to me

This track list is epic! Very excited for this. I’m rarely in the mood for Buzz’s acoustic stuff. I mean, I like it, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t play it often. I like the Melvins for their chugging, de-tuned guitars, snarling vocals and general weirdness. I’m hoping that these cleaner sounds will grow on me. I thought the Night Goat teaser was pretty rad, I think because of the drums.

This record makes a lot of sense and is a natural progression in their discography. Easier to play physically, the songs are already made, while having a different sound than the rest of their catalog. Someone mentioned this earlier, but this could be a sort of greatest hits, dreamed up in a very Melvins way!

I completely agree. From the very first moment Buzz started playing a few Melvins songs acoustic on his initial solo tour it made me want to hear more Melvins songs done that way. So for a while i've wished they would put something like this out yet never really expected that they would. I just imagined they might make an album of new songs done acoustic. Who knows! Perhaps that will appear at some point down the line also!

As soon as I heard the acoustic Night Goat, I thought, “This album will be my new go-to record for smoking a blunt to.”

 :wink:

Damn straight!


Totally. It’s essentially stripped back dubwise Melvins. They don’t need no commotion with that motion!!

This is essentially the WHOLE catalogue in the key of Bootlicker.

In other words…..this is going to be most triumphant.

That little taster of Nightgoat is KO.

Ah yeah. I didn't think of that one. Now you mention it, this seems like a clear reference point/homage.

I imagined the five might be a reference to five instruments (gtr, drums, bass, lead vocals, backing vocals), or five "active" members of the Melvins (including Dunn and Pinkus). Of course it's weird and will give Mackie and Haze plenty to illustrate across the various versions.
