Interview wrap up

Melvins will reinterpret their own catalog and showcase some new covers on the grunge giant’s massive new Five Legged Dog, a 36-track LP that doubles as the group’s first-ever acoustic album.

“I knew I wanted to do something ridiculously big. Thirty-six songs reimagined by us acoustically is certainly ridiculous but it works! The magic of the songs is still there regardless of it being acoustic,” Buzz Osbourne said in a statement of the pandemic-recorded album.

“Since we weren’t touring we had the time to do something of this size. I’m very excited about this record. Dale [Crover] and Steven [McDonald] did a fantastic job on this. I think it’s a very special record. I can’t think of anyone else who’s done something like this.”

Five Legged Dog boasts acoustic takes on tracks from throughout the Melvins’ enormous discography — from 1987’s Gluey Porch Treatments to 2017’s A Walk With Love & Death — as well as cuts from Crover’s solo album, non-LP songs, and covers both previously recorded and attempted for the first time, like the Rolling Stones’ “Sway,” Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talking” (sung here by Butthole Surfers’ Jeff Pinkus), and Brainiac’s “Flypaper.”

Ahead of Five Legged Dog’s October 15th release via Ipecac Recordings, Melvins have shared their new rendition of “Night Goat,” a standout from their 1993 LP Houdini; the acoustic version strips off the original song’s fuzz and sludge while still capturing its grungy intensity.

Crover added in a statement: “They said it couldn’t be done! Actually, they didn’t say that, but the facts remain. We’ve taken some 30-plus songs that span our entire career and given them the acoustic treatment. There are also some fun cover songs, of course. We’ve covered songs by the Turtles and Brainiac!  I think people will be surprised that we can do an acoustic version of a song like ‘Night Goat’ without losing any of the heaviness. We also really worked hard on vocal arrangements. People are going to freak out!”

Five Legged Dog will be available to preorder Thursday, July 22nd in a variety of formats, including digitally and two-CD (both out October 15th) and four-LP colored vinyl that will arrive on January 28th.

Melvins Discussion / Buzz on Life In The Stocks podcast
« on: February 28, 2019, 03:14:50 PM »
From December last year -

An hour of Buzz covering off on Fantomas band relations (pretty interesting), dogs, women, LA, movies etc.

Not quite sure what this is all about but I'm intrigued...

Nerd Table explodes with "It's Shoved/Milk It". This is a merging of the two legendary songs by (the) Melvins and Nirvana. Featuring the grunge pioneers themselves King Buzzo (vocals) and Dale Crover (guitar/vocals) of the legendary Melvins along with the producer and mixer of the track Billy Anderson.

The collaborative genius of Nerd Table shines in the release of the epic "Noise of Earth Part 5" in which they bring together musicians from all gambits. Featuring Joe Daniels (Local H), Geoff Robinson (Blood Circus), David Abbruzzese (Pearl Jam), Kurt Danielson (TAD), Rodleen Getsic (Deftones/Knife Party), Kevin Rutmanis (Melvins/the Cows/Tomahawk/Teenage Larvae/Hepa/Titus) Billy Anderson (Melvins - Houdini), Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers/Melvins/Honky), Terence Smart (Butthole Surfers/Part White), Nathan Calhoun (Butthole Surfers/We Are The Asteroid), 4 members of the underground Columbus band the Indestructible Robots (Brett Atherton, John Tredway, Maxx Davis and Joe Filio), 2 members of Gelatinus Cube (Pat Chase and Sean Castanien), Derrick Hessler (Spindler's Dream), Columbus public access icon Damon Zex, John Bess Jr. (Howard Stern Show), Brian Dellinger (Kirkwood-Dellinger), Matthew Draudt (Eradicate), honorary Nerd Table members Bobby Brown and Andy Sartain, former Nerd Table members Jacob Walker, Aaron White and Tony Osterloh, and topped off in amazing fashion by Lisa Rau of Vladopus9.

Melvins Discussion / Dig Me Out Podcast Episode #241 feat. Dale Crover
« on: August 25, 2015, 05:53:28 PM »
Loooooong interview with Dale from this usually pretty good podcast.

Via Stereogum...

Ty Segall, Steven McDonald (of Redd Kross and OFF!), and Dale Crover (of Melvins) have banded together to form a scuzz-supergroup under the name Broken Bat. They’ve uploaded a single track to their Bandcamp page titled “Take My Medicine,” with a parenthetical note that this particular recording is “just a taste edit.” It’s 53 seconds of claustrophobic aggression, and hopefully there’s more to come. Listen below.

Haven't listened yet but sounds like some interesting ground is covered.

Melvins Discussion / Clubbing with King Buzzo
« on: June 11, 2014, 05:52:59 PM »

King Buzzo (Buzz from The Melvins) takes on The Echo tomorrow evening, and in preparation, he’s graced us with these STELLAR golf tips (he’s an avid golfer).  Please do read to the end.

1. NEVER let anyone give you golf “advice” while out on the course because they’re intentionally trying to screw you up. This is especially true if you happen to have money riding on the match. Fuck that. Work on your horrible swing after the round and don’t let these assholes get into your head. Golf’s hard enough as it is and busy body crap like this only makes your shitty round even shittier.

2. Golf carts are for cripples and old women and should be avoided at all costs. I HATE golf carts. Some courses don’t even allow you to walk which is total bullshit. I’m a musician which means I’m a person of the great indoors so I NEED to walk a golf course as many times a week as is possible just to keep my head straight. If your under 85 and you don’t have a pair of light bulbs for knees then get off your fucking ass and WALK!

3. Remember, you’re not good enough to get mad. Unless your like a +3 then you just end up looking like a fucking dick head by cussing and screaming and throwing clubs around. No one, me included thinks this is cool. It’s funnier than shit but it’s not cool. Ok ok, throwing clubs IS kinda cool and the best advice I have for tossing clubs is to helicopter them as far as you can and try to bounce em off a tree. Remember, if you toss a club and it breaks just leave it where it is. One of the groups behind you will get a good laugh when they find it. I LOVE finding broken clubs. The funniest of them all is finding broken putters. Ha!

4. Don’t worry about being a hack out on the golf course. EVERYBODY makes horrible shots sooner or later and everybody who plays golf knows this and they expect it. I’m a hack golfer and I couldn’t care less about having a crappy round or looking stupid in front of a bunch of people I don’t know, in fact looking stupid in front of strangers is how I make a living. What pisses me and every other golfer I know who gives a fuck about the game off is hack golfers who play slow. There’s nothing worse than bad golfers who insist on making you wait. I’m always amazed when I see a father out on the course teaching his kid how to golf while you sit behind them like an idiot. I can almost hear big daddy telling his kid “the lesson today son is it’s OK for you to make people wait.” Usually these geniuses are too stupid to let you play through and besides, playing through is sometimes followed by you playing REALLY bad as a result of now being rushed. Fuck that. If you’re just starting out then do whatever it takes to keep up even if it means using your foot or hand wedge to move play along. Hell, I’ve seen hand wedges hit the ball as far as forty yards.

5. Whenever you hear “fore” out on the course QUICKLY hide your head. Chances are some dumb ass has waited until the last second to finally warn you that you’re about to get drilled in the face with a golf ball going 75 miles an hour. Weirdly whenever you hear fore on the golf course the tendency is to look TOWARDS wherever the warning is coming from. I can’t explain it but it’s true and I catch myself stupidly doing it all the time. Maybe I WANT to get hit right in the grill. Who knows. Golf is a weird game designed for freaks and social outcasts. Most of the guys I play with have nothing to do with music and stare at me like I’m Charles Manson. There’s the wise cracking animator from Disney, the 100 pound ex crystal meth head, a host of golf cheat Mexican illegal aliens, a vacuum cleaner salesmen, a punk ass 11th grader who hits the ball 320 yards and a wide variety of country club type golf hustlers all willing to get up at the crack of dawn and assemble at some municipal course in the greater Los Angeles area.
Life is beautiful and the streets are paved with gold.
