Melvins Discussion / Re: 2023
« on: Today at 12:39:36 PM »
You can't call an event "DesertFest" in the state of NY for obvious reasons. Unless you want to get real and name it as  a deserting of common sense, decency, etc. More people every year desert NYS due to it's ever growing idiocy/liberalism/fascism and overall wanting to be California Jr.

Probably shouldnt name a fest DesertFest in London or Berlin or Antwerp but thats not going to stop them at all.  :lol:

If I recall the name was based on being inspired by the desert rock scene and the early years definitely reflect that. Not unlike Roadburn starting as a psych / stoner rock fest before it evolved into its own thing.

When I was doing Riffipedia some years ago that sites founder was writing for DesertFest and DesertScene and gave a bit of insight there.

At the very least bust out a few deep cuts on these upcoming tours. Like, I'll go regardless but I'd be down for some genuine surprises.

Melvins Discussion / Re: New interview with Dale
« on: January 04, 2023, 09:51:40 AM »
I've always been curious as to why they never released the supposed second shrinebuilder album. I remember hearing someone saying in an interview or something that it's because Al Cisneros is crazy. He doesn't seem crazy to me but I guess it doesn't matter anymore because they probably won't release it because of the stuff with Scott Kelly. I like Sleep, I like Om, and I like shrinebuilder. Just wants me some more.
It was Wino who said Al was crazy. I loved Shrinebuilder at the time and always wanted a second, third and hell, fourth record! but part of me is glad they never came. Perhaps i wouldn't like it as much and would be always comparing the two. As it is, the self titled sits back there in it's timeframe as an interesting artifact - a point where 4 fascinating musicians temporarily intersected to create as one.

And also because of ehm... you know... Scott Kelly.

I don't think Kelly was too far off the rails at that point in time. Signs point to Wino butting heads with Cisneros (likely over religion, as he did the same thing with Victor Griffin and Place of Skulls a decade prior) and over time none of the three other guys wanting to work with him.

I'll try to come up with a post-SB timeline as best I can:
2011 - Shrinebuilder play Roadburn, their last show.
2012 - Scott Kelly states there probably won't be a second record.
2013 - Scott Kelly guests with Melvins
2014 - the Wino interview, Wino getting arrested in Europe for meth. His ban may finally get lifted this year.
2015 - the Hellfest interview where Dale mentions conflicts and Buzz interjects with "JuNkIeS".
2016 / 2017 - Cisneros guests with Melvins
2022 - Kelly's career ends

Yeah when the curtain goes down, it looks like Steven is looking at Dale going, “You alright, bro?”

yeah, there's a point of the video where you can tell Buzz seems surprised too

That clip genuinely surprised me too at the time. Thought back to Michael Azerrad's book on Nirvana and some interesting Dale comments about treating instruments with a sense of sanctity. Could be a case at the time of not having much money and taking value to your belongings.

He also noted one stipulation to Kurt and Krist on that 1990 tour is not to jump in his drum kit at any point and they respected his wishes.

Just saw a Paris show listed on Songkick for next year:

EDIT: With Shitkid listed as support  :shock: Which means this is either bullshit or they patched things up
1. - exactly how reliable is that site?
2. - patched things up? after the book of private texts? never!  :lol:

ShitKid are still broke up from the looks of it. Calling BS.

Also thinking Steven will likely be the last Melvins bassist barring a double-drum tour or a Melvins Lite tour happens in the future.

Listening to a bit of this on bandcamp streaming now to pass time. Grizzlor and Bovine Nightmares sound closest to the original songs from what I can tell. Work Party's cover of "Skin Horse" is really good. Trigger Cut's cover of "Lizzy" is weirdly charming in how "off" it feels.

Gave this another listen and though I like a few songs on both discs, it's a pretty meh listen. Bottom Tier Melvins for sure.

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.
