Melvins Show Reviews / 27 OCT - Zurich, Rote Fabrik
« on: October 31, 2017, 02:59:22 PM »
great show as expected by the boys.
Unfortunately Redd Kross' sound was a little shaky. I still enjoyed them very much and it was great to finally see them live.

As mentioned before I think Melvins set this time around was close to perfect.

The highlight was spotting a guy wearing the '97 Honky/Amrep shirt.
I finally know these actually exist in Switzerland and hope to someday find one somewhere.

Here is a photo of jules, gareth, myself and the boys we took backstage after the show

The Melvins and Mudhoney will be playing at Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville, Tennessee. All shows played are recorded and most are pressed to vinyl.

May 31 — The Melvins with Cy Barkley & the Way Outsiders
September 26 — Mudhoney with Cheap Time

real quick here....
great show, as expected.
really loud and brutal sound.
it was my first time seeing big business with a guitarrero. good stuff... i liked especially the last song they played. i am not really familiar with their stuff. i only have the "head for the shallow" LP. on record it is kinda too hectic for me. works well live though, mainly because of coadys impressive show.

melvins lite came on an played the already known set. like i said it was really loud and buzz seemed to have a somewhat more aggressive / sloppier style of playing than the recent shows i saw... maybe it was just me though... anyway, it was great to see dale hammering away solo and trevor was fantastic too.
during the band intro buzz was again quite chatty and said that he "is really happy that california changed its laws so that dale and he can finally get married!" ...funny guy as usual...
they ended the set with the coady/dale show... at the very end they played the drum intro of "lovely butterfly" and i was hoping trevor and buzz would join in again...
well at least it is not a long wait until next week for the berlin residency!

MERCH: they still had all 3 shirts available (Melvins L + XL only, BB all sizes). Plus the Bristol Posters. NO vinyl / CDs were displayed yesterday.
I had a quick chat with the merch guy, Gerry (?)... he was very nice, but wouldn't answer my question if there will be any special merch for the residency shows....

next up is italy: Stallion & Jules enjoy!!

Melvins Show Reviews / Oct. 7th Geneva & Oct. 8th Zurich

so here is my quick review of my 2 melvins nights. needless to say it was absolutely amazing for both nights.

on friday afternoon i took the train to geneva, which takes about 3.5 hours. met an old mate from work for a few beers. he did not want to come to the show (i guess i shocked him the last time when i took him to see swans)  :D

anyway so i went alone. support was also the dj-thing. but it was actually quite good. the dj was the singer/guitarist from the young gods and he made an hour of extremly loud, dissonant noise electro pieces whatever. i liked it.
then the melvins came on and played the already known set.
i am very lucky with this set list: ligature, at the stake, the bit and HB/RDB.... all favourites. also the newer tunes were superb!
during lizzy i noticed that buzz indeed likes to make up some lines. he was singing "and he's on the stage" referring to a guy who wanted to stage dive whereas the night after in zurich he sang "and she's not dale".
since i was alone in geneva i stayed sober and watched the whole gig from the front row, right in front of buzz.
at the end of the show i got a drumstick from coady...

yesterday night was zurich and my girlfriend and some other friends were also coming, so it was a bit more party feeling. i watched it relaxed from the tribune where i could oversee the whole crowd and had easy access to the bar etc...

attached are a few photos which my girlfriend made... (mainly buzz, because "he is cute" as she says)...
