Melvins Discussion / Re: Performing unreleased songs
« on: June 15, 2022, 01:24:08 PM »
I might be wrong but they previewed Suicide In Progress at a Roadburn gig before NWB came out. remember thinking, oh cool that's a new song

That's correct, I can remember that they also played (at least) Billy Fish ahead of the NWB release. I think some parts of the song were slightly different compared to the final album version.

EDIT: The videos I saw all those years back are still up on YouTube:

I'm hoping this guy will also have video from the Bielefeld show from the same tour, as there is a SBD recording that could be sync'd up....

Do you happen to know (or anybody else) when was the last time/year they played in Bielefeld? I only saw them everytime in Cologne (Gebäude 9), which is about a 2.5 hours drive from where I live. Bielefeld is only 30 minutes, so it would be nice if they ever played there again, but I guess it's unlikely they ever will at this point.

To me, it sounds like the unholy tribal child of AMAZON and Bloated Pope.

I hope they prepare a Faberge Egg omelet for Buzz this time, too.

I'd really like to know how often Buzzo seriously entertains the idea of giving a damn about it all and change his trademark 'fro after about 30 years to a simple "buzz"-cut?

Edit: Oh, I just saw that this was already question #8 in the original post. Didn't catch that when I read it...

1. Black Heath
2. Soberdelic
3. Euthanasia
4. Street Level St. Paul
5. Edgar The Elephant
6. The Hidden Joice
7. Flaming Creature
8. Cactus Party
9. Cardboa Negro
10. Pacomia Normal


That actually looks like a pretty good track list! It might contain one or two more songs from "Love", but it already has the more experimental ones I favour the most, too.

But thankfully to modern digital technology, one always has the possibility to create a tracklist for himself - and I'll never complain about the Melvins releasing too many songs on their albums as there's always a person that likes some track a lot more than I do.

Yeah, i feel like the "Death" side of AWWL&D gets unfair criticism. Black Heath, Soberdelic, Euthanasia and Flaming Creature are all really good songs!

It's absolutely true. I could live without "What's wrong with you", but the rest of the songs range from "very good" to "great" for me.

€: I just saw your edit. I nearly forgot "Christ Hammer", and while it is far from my favourite on that record, I still like it, though the "chorus" with Steve singing is kinda weak.

My personal song order might be as following:
Sober-Delic > Flaming Creature > Euthanasia >= Black Heath > Cactus Party > Edgar the Elephant >= Cardboa Negro > Christ Hammer > What's Wrong with You.

Funny in retrospect that the two songs they released before AWWLAD came out might actually be the weakest ones on the "more regular" first disc.

It's kinda like how "Euthanasia" was the best song on the double album. Almost wished that song could have been on PAT or Basses Loaded instead.

"Sober-Delic" and "Flaming Creature" want a word with you.

The first disc of A Walk with Love and Death might actually be my favourite Melvins record since Nude with Boots.

Basses Loaded's cover is pretty bad i think. I liked AWWL&D one tho!

Yeah, AWWLAD's cover is a lot more "tidy" and not that bad. Bassed Loaded on the other hand is far too crowded.

The Stoner Witch and Stag covers are just great in their simplicity, you'd have no idea what kind of music awaits you when looking at those illustrations and you've never heard of the Melvins before. I especially like the swan on the original cover of Stoner Witch.

And yes, I agree that skulls are some of the most cliché (and thus boring) art elements you can use for a band that plays heavier music. Honestly, I don't know why they use them so much in the recent years. I didn't like the similar looking "Basses Loaded" and "A Walk with Love and Death" album covers very much because of it.

It might also all just be a little joke to make fun of heavy metal bands by using cutesy cartoon skulls in abundance, though.
