benefit for 400 blows drummer

Reviews

Melvins (or as Buzz said for tonight, 'Melvin,' due to the fact that only Dale & Buzz were playing, or 1/2 melvins...but wouldn't that be melv..I digress) played a benefit tonight for Ferdie, the drummer of '400 blows,' an LA band. They were one of five bands; which included Qui, the Bronx, the Locust, and the Circle Jerks. Melvin played roughly a half hour/possibly a forty minute set, starting off with 'Okie from Muskogee'. They played the full Ballad of Dwight Fry, as well as 'Suicide in Progress', which they say will be on their next album. Some shit bird in the audience, before the set, tried to bait Buzz into saying something bad about Rob Zombie. Shitbird yelled something like 'What did you do when you found out Rob Zombie was gay?' .. Buzz says 'What?' Audience quiets, shitbird yells a bit louder 'What Did You Do When You Found Out Rob Zombie Was Gay?'.. Buzz says 'What?!?' Audiences gets a bit quieter, and shitbird screams 'WHAT DID YOU DO WHEN YOU FOUND OUT ROB ZOMBIE WAS GAY?' Buzz rolls his eyes, and like the professional he is says something along the lines of 'Ah, thats a great one, I'll have to write that one down and put it in my locker.' .. As an aside, when did the Melvins tour with white zombie? Twelve years ago?!? It's time for some new material, shitbird in the audience.
