I only know their output from Bullhead up to Stag, and I have to agree... and disagree. Bullhead is unquestionably a Sludge album (a weird one at that, too), Lysol also passes as one, but Houdini, Stoner Witch and Stag? I don't think so.

I would add Hostile Ambient Takeover and The Maggot to that list. *shrug* I dunno, I've always considered them more metal than anything else. They've certainly experimented with a lot of styles, though.

I saw them live with Big Business last year. The highlight was them covering The Star Spangled Banner for the encore.

i'm surprised that the Melvins don't get more attention here...what a great band.

here's my review + photos of the show they played on Sunday:


the merch table had everything but spit guards


it was impossible to get a shot of Dale, but I had a decent line for Coady


Buzzo has captured a soul in his guitar.



i also did an interview w/ the band before they sound-checked...gotta transcribe that next.

^Those are some pretty sweet pictures.

And I love the Melvins. They are definitely an awesome band that has influenced a lot of the bands I like, as well. King Buzzo is just plain awesome. Favorite songs are Boris, the Talking Horse, With Teeth, and the Bloated Pope. They have tons of great songs, though.

thanks Patbuck2. i agree, they've got a TON of great songs...it was nice hearing some of the Lysol material on this set. i would love to hear 'Caped Crusader' from their work w/ Jello, fantastic song.

I think this thread would get a fair amount of traffic in Metal, you MRers are just not worthy.

yeah, modern rock is a bit of a weird label for the Melvins, but then again they really can't just be pigeonholed into metal either.

Interestingly enough, the are in the metal forum's recommendation thread.

Anybody else find it disappointing that it's hard to find their music at stores? I've only been able to find two CD's at Best Buy or Barnes and Nobles. I'm going to Chicago soon, though, and I know a cool record shop down there that has some great bootlegs and what not, so they will probably have some Melvins when I go there.

Just saw them Wednesday in Cleveland. Killer set. Took pictures with Buzz and Dale outside before the show.

If I could figure out how to post them I would.

Are they on a digital camera? Can you upload them to your computer? If so, just go to imageshack or any other image url site and put a url on them. Then post the url to the images here.

Upload them, copy the URL and wrap it with [img] [/img] tags. That should do the trick.

Wait, do you work for that music review site? That's pretty cool.

Also, I was sorely disappointed in the Melvins cd collection available at the record stores in Chicago that I checked.

Very cool. I'm still mad that I can't find any music stores that sell Melvins albums.
