I listened to Universal Juveniles (last Max record) the other day and the was some tune ... can't recall which one I thought the same of.
It was a big night out on the town for the Id and the Reptile Brain ...

like a brick wall, like a dream waiting to be!

Well, Altamont covered it, and it smokes. I can't believe this one didn't sell out. If it was under the moniker "Melvins" it would have, and at quadruple the price. :lol:

Well hot damn! I think the Melvins would still wail with it. I was thinking of the synchronized vocals for the chorus!

I'm gonna have to see if I can find the Altamont cover online.

The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice (Jimi Hendrix Experience)
No youtube link available. Has anyone of importance ever attempted this? First heard it years ago on the Loose Ends CD. Cranking Disc 1 of the Purple JHE box tonight. Melvins would own it.

My favorite 80s Kinks song!  That song stuck in my head as a 6 year old! :love:

The Beatles Blue Jay Way or It's All Too Much would be cool or a more psychedelic number like Tomorrow Never Knows or Within You Without you
Is Ian back yet??

The Who should have called it a day 20 yrs ago, after they said their last tour was 10 yrs prior to that. I guess they still play this tune, but I don't want to hear 30 seconds of the Roger & Pete show playing it today. Melvins would destroy this as The Who '69/'70 once did.

))))((((

I hope the next Melvins album has no cover songs on it. Not that i dislike the covers they do, but i feel like recently their records have given over too much runtime to multiple cover songs. One song can be okay but the last 3 albums particularly have been far too heavily laden with covers. All to their detriment i might add. I'd like to hear a full Melvins album of new material from front to back without hearing a tongue in cheek, ironic cover song or something that doesn't sit well with what surrounds it.
