Melvins : The Water Glass + Evil New War God @ Villette Sonique 2012
A couple comments:
The Water Glass, Evil New War God video-
Jared at 7:26 and
Dale at 7:56
And now for some percussion talk:
On the recent US tour Coady was only using the blue jam block, but in these latest shows he's brought back the red jam block with the Pete Engelhart bell (in 2010 he was playing two different pitched bells, before the red jam block eventually replaced one of the bells). Also, If I'm not mistaken, Coady doesn't have a ribbon crasher in his setup
I can't tell if Dale has one.
In the beginning of The War On Wisdom-I think Coady normally uses the ribbon crasher in the opening beat, along with the Pete Engelhart bell, jam block, and stack crash that Dale and Coady share. But with no ribbon crasher Coady had to, well... leave it out.
And you know that part during Evil New War God where Coady does that cool beat where he plays those notes alternating between the Pete Engelhart bell/ jam block, then rides 16th notes on the ribbon crasher? in this video he was forced to stick with the two available percussion sources, so he played that part a little differently than he normally does.
And where's the ribbon crashers?!
Hopefully this is not a sign that they're ditching ribbon crashers, or a sign of the apocalypse.
