Alex-

They are playing Bullhead in its entirety (almost), that's not so bad  :lol: Perhaps they could have added Blood Witch instead of Revolve or Honey Bucket this tour, but besides that I think we in europe and US got great setlists this year.

Looking at Spotify, Honey Bucket, A History of Bad Men and Revolve are their top three most popular songs. Night Goat is in the top ten. It makes sense to me that they play the crowd pleasers at this stage in the game - as much as I want a show that opens with Charmicarmicat followed by Colossus of Destiny for a full HOUR - I think that may never happen. Although holy shit I would follow the fuck out of that entire tour!!

I do have to say it was fucking me up to hear a History of Bad Men AND Night Goat at the same show - essentially the same riff!

))))((((

Ah yeah, i never thought of that.

the fact that Cow is on Bullhead might just pull them out of the fire in my book.

the fact that the drum solo rolls into A History of Bad Men at about midpoint however...

COME ON!!  PLAY THAT SHIT OUT!   EVERY SINGLE BEAT. 


just call me Mr. Snooty.

Foo fighters 'Hero' is the pretty much the drum line from night goat. 

The bassline from History of bad men is the man with the laughing hand, and that riff I suspect was borrowed, or what inspired that riff from the B side of Throbbing Gristle IRC 3.


It starts around 13:00 and eventually turns into a huge sludge trance

at least Led Zepplin always wrote all original material.

oh wait..

Amazing that they're pulling this off at all

Yes I'd love for them to do a couple shows of rarities some time (and record it!)

Roseland was on fire! My thoughts:

1. Mr. Phylzzz were incredible, and the goofy vibe they brought worked well.

2. While I found the setlist to be odd and overplayed, I have no complaints. First time I have seen Ligature. I will never tire of Blessened or Bad Men. Coady was fantastic. My love for Steven grows bigger, the levity the band gets from his compulsive need to entertain just fits so well, and he is a monster on that bass. It's really like having two guitarists.

*Steven said surgery was a success*

3. I can't help but imagine this conversation pre-tour: Steven: "Hey, I bet I can turn the beginning of Night Goat into a clap-along." Buzz: *cackles*

4. The vocal ending of Boris is something I won't forget.

5. Hey portland, can we agree that they should only play the roseland? They always sound 10 times better when they play there and the energy is always higher.

6. I have heard some Boris before, but haven't really dived in. THEY BLEW THE DOORS OFF THE JOINT. I was surprised when I heard Melvins would be in the middle and Boris would close, but now it makes sense. They weren't better, just different. Their music just has more space and it breathes more, whereas Melvins are wound up like a top, because of those punk roots.

7. Boris paying tribute to the Melvins, feeling honored to be there and help celebrate was a sweet speech. This felt like new puppies and old puppies paying tribute and celebrating. This is a good tour.
Also melvins is gay cuz some of their songs are just noise, i tell you this so you all don't buy albums and find out only one two songs is good on them.

that was special.  and not just because it was one of the few times that buzz has ever thanked the audience.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to Portland last night.  Too much life stress crap going on (show of hands, anyone else find asbestos in their bathroom subfloor this week?) and I just couldn't talk myself into the 3.5 hour drive, only to have to jump back in the truck and do it again today plus another 2.5 hours to Spokane where I will be at the show tomorrow.  Luckily I was able to pass my tickets off to a good friend.  I told him he didn't have to pay me but he did manage to snag me whatever version of the Throbbing Gristle vinyl they had at the merch table.

I agree about the Roseland and actually miss that place.  They've managed to have decent sound at the Wonder but that place you kind of have to find the sweet spots in the room.
