I got a friend who got banged up pretty good during Honey Bucket.

Headliners is one of my favorite venues in town, great space for shows.

Sounds like you had a great time! Gutted to miss it.

Third time they're playing my hometown and i'm missing it. Not the hat trick I was hoping for. First time I'm missing them in Indy since 2012 too.

Glad I caught em' on the Ministry tour.

That's actually a really good read there, digging into the history prior and acknowledging the fact Lori isn't on it. The observations of Buzz's lyrics, the songwriting and a bit on Spread Eagle Beagle is quite the read too.

Funny how it scored a 7.7, one decimal behind Chicken Switch.  :lol:

Got to hear this recently and for sure the A-Side is the highlight, just nineteen minutes of THUD. This might be the best album to feature Steven to date and balances the heavy with the melodic quite nicely. I really dig it.

Since the Joe Preston EP was released prior, I’ve often wondered if Hands First Flower influenced the droning, doom sounds of Lysol. Hung Bunny / Roman Bird Dog have always sounded (to me) like an extension of Joes idea. Does anyone have any more info on that? Did that genre even exist before Joe laid this long-ass, heavy song to tape?

Before the Joe Preston EP you basically had the first Earth EP and demos as far as drone/doom goes but the band's sound that early on bordered on being really slow noise rock if anything. But Joe was in the band at that time too.

Couple things I noticed:

See How Pretty and Moon Pie are actually under ten minutes. They both have bits of silence (See How Pretty is about six minutes, Moon Pie about seven) before a hidden "bonus track" pops up. Depends on if the silence counts. If so the last song on Honky at nearly 30 minutes is a shoo-in.

There's also the acoustic Halo of Flies which is over ten minutes.

Colossus is a weird one. On one hand it's a live recording so in the context of this thread it shouldn't really count but in another sense it literally is it's own weird entity that could be the exception to the rule. If it counts then by default the longest Melvins composition at about close to 50 minutes, excluding Eye Flys obviously.

Digging into that video a bit and some thoughts...

- That live version of Sacrifice sounds closer to the version that was recorded on Hot Fish (Yecch!) and I don't like the more up-tempo version of Sacrifice at all. I can see the overplaying a bit. I actually didn't mind it in 2018 with "Eye Flys" but they also had Pinkus to bounce off as well.
- On that note imagine if they did the Endless Residency sets with Steven.
- A History of Bad Men is weird with Steven leading vocally, like he can get loud enough for the key parts but his voice isn't "deep" enough like Jared's to make it work. At least Dale is absolutely killing it on that song.
- Charlie is kind of tiresome to hear and feels weirdly out of place, but I get it on account of a song from one of Steven's bands. Begs the question if Pinkus stayed around for the long haul, would we be saying "I don't want to hear Graveyard anymore."?
- Mister Dog is Totally Right rules at the very least.
- Can confirm Steven was kind of reigned in for OFF! but it's hard to be an over the top showman when all of your songs are a minute each and the band has a definitive lead singer.

I like Steven as a bassist and he just strikes me as this antsy, weirdo dude but I can understand his goofy personality and showman live persona being off-putting. Then again the BB lineup did add their own bits of silliness to some older songs too.

A friend of mine texted me and asked if I was seeing them in town on the 22nd and told him I'm missing it due to work. Seen em' in Covington and that's good enough for this year, really. Not the hat trick I was expecting with missing them in my hometown the last three years they've been here but I'll roll with it, I suppose.

sheesh, don't know if thats enough to see them a 4th time this year, especially when it involves a 3 hour drive.

It'd be a 3 hour drive for me too as Columbus is the only date I can make. I work til' 10PM the night they're in town and I doubt I can get a day shift and then drive two hours immediately to Indy that next day. It'd be cool to see them play Lovely Butterfly and Little Judas Chongo for sure, but I think I got my one this year (Covington as support for Ministry).

The real hot take? Not one song from Houdini or Stoner Witch. I dig.

Not gonna lie Im digging the weird air of mystery to this release. It's a change of pace from the usual on-the-nose pre-planned fare.

The bad mood rising was the shoxop orders we missed along the way.

Also, hot take: I dig this whole super limited deal, actually. It's almost like a reverse of an album getting leaked on the net or I'd even compare it to a Magic pre-release. Getting something early that so few have...
