Melvins Discussion / Re: Melvins Tool Primus coming 24 June 17
« on: May 24, 2017, 10:54:31 AM »
I had tix and a flight dialed up and ready but just couldn't justify it with adulting life being what it is. That said, I've always liked Tool and Primus, but adding Clutch to the bill really made me excited. That band is a bluesy riff machine, Neil Fallon is a stunning vocalist and lyricist, and they have pretty much "kept their heads down and done their work" for a long time. Should the Melvins be headlining? Absolutely. But what a once-in-a-lifetime collection of old weirdos still executing their bizarre version of rock. Kudos to Tool for putting it together!

That moment when I realized that only one side out of six was 33rpm, not all of them. (solo eps)

Great job Brian! And does this finally put to rest "Dog Bird" as opposed to "Bird Dog"?

Great job. My biggest complaint was the lack of cool air at the theater. Proud of you both, and thanks for answering my question regarding lukin. I would pay full ticket price to see that full interview alone. The credit for backers: my name on there means nothing to the world at large, but because that band means the world to me, that made me feel like i was connected just a little teeny bit to something so great. Saw dillard in line for popcorn. Again, ryan and bob, you did so well, great job.

It plods along with a squalling midrange tone without any asskick or point.

Listened to it with friends last night, i think its their best work since bride. From bulls to three men it seems the band has just been experimenting with their style like mad with the revolving door concept. Each of the releases from 2012 thru three men have moments that are wonderful, but were not consistently enjoyable to my ears. Basses sounds like a summation and the beginning of a new phase, and its the first long player since bride that i am playing straight through over and over.  Other than that hideous beatles cover, which i assume was purposely designed to make me slam shards of glass into my ears. So this one goes onto the post millennium highlights list for me. Hat,senile,bride,bulls,basses.

While my reaction to the setlist was initially meh, I really enjoyed the different energy with MacDonald on bass. The set was fast, punky and classic rock feeling. Lots of solos. Decay of Lying is a new masterpiece. Melt Banana blew me away.  We stuck around for about a third of Napalm Death, I'm glad I saw them, but a little grindcore goes a long way for me. All in all, I'm glad I caught this line-up. The Pinkus era was slow and sludgy, this set was fast!

Melvins Album Discussion / Re: Three Men and a Baby

Mine came yesterday. Bassheads will be pleased with this release, the low end is great. The drums sound great. Not every song is a winner, but this does feel like a collaboration album, not a Melvins album with a guest. Limited Teeth and Bummer Conversation melted my face, but my two favorite tracks were Dead Pile and Dead Canaries. They both have a nice, creepy vibe.

Best part of the album? The production. It was nice to hear new material under a different producer. I like Toshi/Melvins production, but all Melvins since 2002 have been recorded by Toshi, so there is a certain "sameness" to the overall sound of their records. This was a nice change for the ears.

I can almost guarantee that the title Chicken n Dump was inspired by Tad's Chicken 'N Dumplings, a wonderful old-school restaurant in Sandy Oregon. One side of the sign's neon has been burnt out for years.

I would like a copy of Let's Together followed by a copy of Let's Kiss. To make it more cool, let's have the first one signed by Buzz, Lukin and Dillard and the second one signed by Buzz, Lukin and Dale.

Based on the trailer, it will likely be a fun watch at least once, but not a repeater. $10 bucks + cell phone footage + 1hr running time= expectations comfortably low.
