Melvins Discussion / Re: TWINS OF EVIL tour!
August 31, 2023, 01:10:12 PM
They are playing Bullhead in its entirety (almost), that's not so bad  :lol: Perhaps they could have added Blood Witch instead of Revolve or Honey Bucket this tour, but besides that I think we in europe and US got great setlists this year.

I agree, just hope he gets well soon and i'm sure we see him back in action after this tour.

I really hope he isn't in too much pain and gets well soon. Having back problems myself, I know it can hurt as hell.

If he has to hang it up, I think they already have the perfect replacement in Coady. ideally Coady stays in the band now and Dale returns so we have the brutal double drums back in the band.

tres cabrones sold out in about 2min. thought maybe they'd be up just a weeee bit longer ..

Got one! (And a few cheapie cd's) :D
I would like to go to Bristol some time. Seems like a small venue, and they always start the tour there which means plenty of merch.

It is a killer setlist for sure. Good for them to celebrate the 40 anniversary like this, it reads explosive, and I think this set will convince folks that see them for the first time.
Personally, I think 'Snake Appeal' is the only one (besides the 2 from bad mood) that I have not witnessed live yet. I was hoping for one from Honky (my all time favourite) and one from HAT (first tour I saw them), but no complaints really. 3 more weeks and it's on!

Cool you went to the UK buddy! How many more times will you see them this tour? I have tickets for both dutch shows. Besides from the residency shows this might actually be my favorite setlist I will be seeing them perform.

I prefer Jared's vocals and dry sense of humor instead of Steve's goofiness and banter. Still, I do like Steve's bass parts and effects he brings in live on some songs.

A different setlist every night is very interesting, didn't really expected that. It might also be that they didn't got enough stage time to do their entire set at one of the two shows, so they skipped two or three songs.

Anyway, I hope they keep Snake Appeal and Zodiac in the setlist for their european tour.
Easily A Senile Animal. It was the first new album as a fan and it came out a few months before I first saw them live.

Yeah, I saw him skate off after they played ,down the street, which made me very happy because I am a skater , of course I just broke my fucking elbow recently for life and I don't think I'll ever be able to skate again, but,that made me like him very much more. So long live Steven and long live Steven in the Melvins....

I'm sorry to keep bringing Kevin back up, but really what I want more than anything is for the cows to get back together, I want somebody to go talk to ThoR
Eisentrager and fucking make him play guitar with those fucking creeps again, they were such a fucking bad ass band, and Thor is one of the best fucking guitar players other than Paul Leary and buzz that I've ever fucking heard my my life ( my dumb ass opinion). Fucking Shannon is the most scariest front man I've ever encountered, one time when they played in town I went to go tell them how much I loved them all, and I walked right up to Shannon and he gave me a look that scared me, and I walked away.... when Buzz produced  their last record I knew it was gonna be fucking amazing, and it was, and I saw them on that tour, and I was so stoked. Then, I heard that Kevin join the Melvins , I was fucking so happy. Then I found out the cows broke up and I drank a case of beer, smoked a bunch of crack, ate a bunch of hash, took a bunch of Lunestra sleeping pills,smoked some speed,and set a building on fire....

I doubt we will see Cows again, especially with the old lineup. They did a show in Minneapolis like 7 years ago? but with Paul from Hammerhead on guitar. I missed that unfortunately.

I think Kevin and Melvins get along fine these days. It would actually be a cool idea to let bring Kevin along on tour together with Steven.
Got one! woohoo

I've ordered the Six Pack record and various cd's April 13th but it still hasn't arrived. :( I read on Shoxop that there are lots of international delays but are there others that still haven't received their package?
My Six Pack took 6 weeks to arrive if that helps. I'm assuming that's the average time for a parcel to Europe at the moment.

Thanks Jules, then it should be alright. Crazy times. and good luck with scoring the Electroretard later this evening.
