If I would make one for a friend as an introduction my choices would totally depend on the person I'm composing it for.

Good point and when you mention it it is obvious to me that I did so in the above list. "Best of" is ofcourse a silly term.

Well if you are including Berthas (one of my favs also) how can you not include captain pungent, they go hand in hand.  Also going down this route Skin Horse is genius!  It needs to be on there.

Of course there are dozens of songs I would have loved to make room for, but alas a cd can only be 80 minutes long

The other day I played Melvins for my personal counsellor as there was some references to music in the text we were talking about and I was wearing  a melvins shirt, this guy is an accomplished swedish writer and intellectual and in his sixtys, I had expected he`d return the headset after 30 seconds or so, but he sat and listened to the full 8 minutes of Boris and absolutely loved it and now he wants more. He asked if they had classical training and listed a bunch of minimalistic composers he thought they was inspired by, but I told him no and that their background was punk. Also, it opened up a whole new view on my texts for him, as he said "I now understand your esthetics", I`ve been aware that this kind of music is an inspiriation for my writings for a long time, but I was surprised it was that obvious. 
Anyway: Now I`m burning him a compilation of some of my favourites. Here`s the list:
1. Air breather deep in the arms of morpheus.
2. Isabella
3. Lovely butterfly
4. Berthas
5. Hung bunny
6. Roman bird dog
7. Black book
8. Pure digital silence
9. The fool, the meddling idiot
10. The bloated pope
11. Boris
12. The anti vermin seed.

I`ve always enjoyed making disks like this for friends etc. Have any of you ever made a "best of" mevins disc? What would it look like if you did?

is this (from 2004) it?   The article ( ) speeks of another interview that aired on the radio Nov 19th, but I can`t find that anywhere around yet...

Also found this!

I'm going to have to listen to them again.  It kind of bothered me that Joe's got slammed as being 'thrown together,' I'll have to check it out again...

joe's is a little rough.  not much there besides some screwing around and noise loops.  maybe he meant it to be taken seriously but that is not necessarily an easy task.      for some reason I just expected a little more.

"Hands first flower"

That title is worth more than the music on the record

The seller has 99,8% positve feedback from almost 4500 different people....
Maybe the seller gathered lots of positive feedback over the years by being fair and honest but now he thinks that the moment has come to rip people off with a "rare triple swastika trilogy". I mean that's a pretty good plan, wait till your feedback is nearly perfect and then you can start to sell bullshit to innocent (and maybe naive) Melvinmaniacs that believe you're trustworthy.

I just don't believe it.

You might be right.

But oh well, I would never on earth have bought it for that price even if it was real.

Have been enjoying it very much myself as well, especially the tour-diaries, but the only shitty thing is the gluing of the magazine which fell apart almost by the time I opened it and there now thus are several loose pages, which sucks.

btw, is that really Buzz singing on Vile Vermillion Vacancy? Haha he sounds like a little girl!
