Melvins Discussion / I'm writing a book....
« on: February 20, 2022, 07:51:30 PM »
I don't know how long it will take to finish, how many people I can track down, who will actually want to talk to me, but I am writing a goddamn Melvins book. I figure if I put it out there now, I can't back out later. I *think* the "centering" of the book will be a detailed discography tracing the history of the band through their records, but we will see if that changes.

Melvins Discussion / My first Melvins show was finally put online
« on: November 22, 2018, 03:16:11 AM »
Sitting here with my jaw dropped to the floor, and in disbelief that my 15 year old self was in the room. Dale is on fire the whole night. Best Night Goat ever. And Specimen is so heavy it made me nauseous.
What amazes me the most is seeing the actual full 2 hour, 3 set evening and how different the vibe is compared to now. Present Melvins is a tight machine. This was a looser band. And those first two sets are really unique in Melvins history. Since these shows they have continued taking big risks, but I don't think they have ever been more bravely vulnerable than they were here.

I'm curious what others think.


Set 1: Experimental (buzz on bass, mark on guitar)
Planet Destructo
Eye Flys
June bug
Sky Pup

Set 2 : Semi-Quiet
At the Stake
Tipping the lion
skin horse
goose freight train
captain pungent

Set 3 : Heavy
sweet willy rollbar
Road bull
buck owens
the bloat
the bit
night goat
the Green manalishi

Happy 30th Melvins :cheers:

This was my 15th show since 1996, and it may be my favorite show of them all. It was my first time at the Wonder, I was stuck in law school hell the previous times they played here. It's hot as hell, but the overall vibe is so much nicer than the Roseland. It's a bit smaller, a bit more intimate, and much more relaxed. Going into the Roseland lately has felt like entering prison...or court. Plus its fucking LOUD. This was bar none the loudest Melvins show I've ever been subjected to. The setlist was just fucking heavy all the way through. I've been waiting to see Your Blessened for years, that was the highlight for me (plus Roman Dog Bird, my favorite). As heavy as it was, the vibe from the band was loose. Buzz was smiling throughout. Everyone just seemed to be filled with pride and having fun, knowing that they could stomp any rock band into dust. If ever a show should have been pro-shot for a release, this was it.

Melvins Discussion / After all this time, I still laugh

I haven't looked at this years, remembered it, found it, and it cheered me up after a crappy day.

1991 or 1994?

Gosh, the Melvins twice in one calender year. I'll be thinking of you all. My review will go here. Think my kid is too young (seven)? He wants to go and I'm considering it.

Melvins Discussion / Local Cut interview

When I sat down to write a short profile of the Melvins, I realized that it was going to be a feat to make a dent in describing the sound and influence of such a seminal band in 200 words. At the last minute I wrote the band

Melvins Discussion / Addition to the 'Songs Covered' list

Melvins Discussion / My wish for a boxset
« on: November 26, 2004, 04:29:33 PM »
Maybe not a box set but a 2 disc rareties collection containing all officially released tunes that have not made it onto an album. We can dream right? I'd call it "Now it's here as opposed to there." All the alternate live versions released would be included as well, but I failed to list them to avoid being redundant.

Scared (Deep Six Comp.)
Blessing the Operation (Deep Six Comp.)
She Waits (Deep Six Comp.)
Pronoun/Piece Me (Your Blessened 8" Flexi)
Sweet Young Thing Ain

This is on the Ipecac site. Haven't seen it on here yet. If this is a repost I apologize.

09/03/2004  We wanted to let our friends in Milwaukee know that we are disappointed to announce that the Melvins/Trevor Dunn show at the Rave Bar has been cancelled. The Melvins found out that the opening bands were not being treated fairly and voiced their displeasure. The club decided not to change their policy. Somebody has to speak up for local openers. This is very unfortunate in that it is not the first time one of our bands has had a problem in Milwaukee. Hopefully fans in the area can make the trek to Chicago.
