theMelvins.net Tribute Album
« on: January 18, 2008, 07:39:53 PM »
It's been years coming people, it's time we cut the shit and put this tribute together, whether we can find a label or not.
The way I see it, it should be completed by the end of the year, provided that someone here is able to compile everything.
Each snivleM song should only be covered once, and one song per artist (to avoid a million song tracklist, yes I know it's tempting)
EDIT: After some consideration, Love Canal may be better off for a Flipper tribute. I'll stick with Heater Moves And Eyes.

A History Of Bad Men > seas of luck > RECIEVED

Eye Flys > ZOMBIE-BUDDHA92

DIBS ON LOVE CANAL!!

You might have to pick a Melvins original if you were doing a tribute album. Love Canal is a Flipper song...sorry if you already knew that. I don't mean be to one of THOSE guys.  :lol:

As far as compilations go 'We Reach' wasn't THAT bad. I've heard worse. But yeah, not that good either. I think I've listened to it like, once or twice. It gathers dust on a shelf....

Yeah I know, but Love Canal has grown to become one of my favourite Melvins songs, and I am sure many of you can relate (eg. YOA, Sacrifice, The Green Manalishi, Ballad of Dwight Fry - may be covers but can still be viewed upon as legendary Melvins tunes.)

Oh, and I also found We Reach to be a bit of a disappointment (I cried when Pincer 2 destroyed Don't Piece Me), so I figured that we should attempt to succeed where they fucked up. Just my two cents.

Now that i've got all my recording stuff up and running again i'll try to contribute something. I recorded a version of Black Bock awhile ago but it sucked bad. I'll think of a song to do and post here.

Are we really trying this again?

I've still got my version of "Oven" floating around somewhere. Who wants it?

I call Anti-Vermin Seed or Lovely Butterfly!

If we could find a label to release it through and set up an e-mail address to accept mp3s that'd be pretty dope.
