I say you can get over it, and jump on the bandwagon now, it's not too late to drop a track.

I'm over it and just joking around.  Hard to tell on a message board but I don't take too much, including myself, very seriously.

Iirc the original tribute fizzled out a bit and then Green Honey rebooted it like 6 months later with all the tracks except my Beara cover of History of Bad Men because he didn't like it.  He didn't bother to tell me either just quietly deleted it and wouldn't add it again when I called him out on it.  Interesting to know it's possible to out weird Melvins fans!   :lol:  That was kind of the whole point of Beara too.  I felt like there were WAY too many judgemental people in the underground music scene.  I wanted Beara to tap into that final area I hadn't seen art tackle; calling out music fans on their own hypocrisies when it comes to being a non conformist and actually rebelling for real instead of wearing black clothing or whatever hackneyed shit that's been done a million times.  (Black clothing is cool, hypocrisy is not.)

Enter Beara and our History of Bad Men Cover.  The dual drumming is pretty much like the original so nothing too weird there.  But then you get to the fact that there's only bass and no guitar.  You would be amazed over the amount of idiots who think a band just simply can not function without a guitar as if it's the be all end all instrument or something.  That adds to the weirdness.  But you know what I loved the absolute most?  The vocals.  Everything about it is just "wrong".  It feels dirty.  It feels off.  The singer rarely hits any correct notes and he's out of time for half the song.  It also sounds as if a serial killer hijacked a band far more talented than him and refused to let us go unless we play for him.  It honestly puts me in gut laughter every time I hear how "wrong" the performance is.  While the rhythmn section captures the original recording pretty well I think the vocals capture the spirit of the Prick album perfect.  It's a dumb joke that's actually kind of smart if you think about it.

The funny thing is that my cover actually grows on you if you listen to it like 3-5 times.  It's super weird, like The Melvins.  I wonder if Green Honey even sat through it once.   :lol:  Oh well.  I still think it was a dick move.  How big does ones ego have to be to cut a guy from a fun, free tribute just cause you don't like what they did?  I've had all kinds of people tell me I'm brilliant, that Beara should be signed (and I'd bet money we would be if the other members weren't lazy asshats),  that Beara was better live than signed bands they had paid to see, and it goes on and on.  But honestly there's a certain joy I get in seeing people who take shit too seriously get pissed off.  So....mission accomplished in pissing off Green Honey I suppose?   :lol:  I assure you I'm not mad though and just find the whole thing funny.

As far as making a new song goes it's just not in the cards for the foreseeable future for many reasons.  My equipment isn't properly set up which is why my vocal cover of Revolve sounded like I was singing very quietly, I was in order to hear myself.  I think my version is neat to hear once but that version doesn't have to end up on the official playlist.  I'm also moving near Detroit very soon!  As you can imagine the majority of my time is going to the move.  Don't you occasionally go to shows there?

But I look forward to hearing more covers!  You guys have kicked ass so far.   8)


I don't think I've listened to your cover until a few days ago when it was uploaded to YouTube. I thought it was good! The tribute was 10 years ago though so there's that. It's funny to read about yourself being called out for something I don't remember doing. The only problem I remember there being was a really petty issue with the Lovely Butterfly cover.  But I apologise if that was the case with yours. Peacex

I agree, it's a great one.  I got my DVD copy from Beto Brasil in 2005. 

Rusty, do you still have the DVD 📀?  maybe it could find its way to be uploaded to the 'Tubes?

this video from Buzz's solo acoustic tour in a record shop, while changing to the CG tuning he calls it Ava Gardner (ie. avant-garde) tuning :lol:

Does anyone have a copy of this they could put on YouTube? I used to have it on VHS and it's one of the best live videos I've ever seen, but doesn't seem to have appeared on the interwebz... Any clues would be much appreciated!
