Melvins get overdue airplay on Rollins radio show

Set Me Straight - 
 "From the crushing Houdini album. This is the band we get letters about, letters asking why we don't play their music more often. Duly noted, Fanatics, duly noted. I have quite a few albums of theirs but not all of them. I will put more Melvins into the mix. It's not like they're not awesome. This was the first Melvins record I ever got. I know that makes me late to the game but what else is new."

i noticed that he played Metalux on the same show and the he named Wolf Eyes and Hair Police. and he likes the Melvins. i'd kinda been wondering what Rollins thought about Melvins and noise bands so that answered it.

i think he should have played "Spread Eagle Beagle" though.

Are Metalux any good? I'm seeing them on Tuesday.
For your health!

'Set Me Straight ' could be my least favorite melvins song

notice The End in the inside of the cd booklet with the # 7 next to it

that to me signified 'Set Me Straight' (track 7) as a joke song to them

For me it was if they ever went so "chorus, verse, chorus", pop song structure

it would be the end of the melvins

always my thoughts on that song

i can see why henry likes it

a rather "straight edge" song for the melvins
when man's only distant relative
has descended on his own
you will know

Set Me Straight is a great song, and they're still playing it live, at least last year. Do you have the '83 Mangled Demos CD? That's an old song from the pre-Dale years, and they just probably felt like finally putting it on a record which was Houdini.

I get both sides of this argument. I love Set Me Straight, but I understand that it's not the usual song structure that they were using, at the time of Houdini's release. This seems to be a moot point to me, since this is a record that features; an even cheesier Kiss cover, a song with a typewriter as the percussion track, an atonal and non-rhythmic drum solo, a song with what sounds like a Gomer Pyle intro, a song with totally nonsensical lyrics (sung by Dracula with spacey guitars)......Oh yeah, Hank Rollins, so much for "Nutmeg" being your first Melvins record! FANATICS! :lol:
