Any other reports on that show? I should try to dig up a piece I wrote when we booked Melvins to play outside of our student union at Macalester spring 1990. "Like an atomic bomb in a paper bag."

Yeah, I was listening to it yesterday. The Melvins are better now than they've ever been, and this live album is the proof of that.

that's not funny. (unperson), Sunday, 15 May 2011 16:53 (six years ago) Permalink

i agree, though consensus seems like Bride was a bit undercooked/a mixed bag. do you agree?

totally loved Senile and Nude, tho

The first and last tracks kinda sucked; everything in between was great. (And I liked the first track when they played it live.)

this part of Buzzo's Village Voice interview had me laughing--

What was the thinking behind doing an album with stand-up bass? Trevor has played electric bass for you guys.

Well, I saw Trevor play stand up bass with Nels Cline and I thought it was something we could do and the wheels started rolling in my head. We reinvented the band but it's just an extension; it's not going to take over. We're gonna do both things—Melvins Lite and regular Melvins.

So Melvins Lite is not just a one-off thing. It will continue?

I certainly hope so.

And the two-drummer lineup will go on, as well?

You bet. Or we'll totally go insane and overdose in the toilet like Elvis.

I have been on a Melvins kick. I really love "The Bootlicker". That record is pretty much the Melvins make a their Pink Floyd album (or close as they ever gonna get) and kinda a bit of both Syd and later Floyd at that too.

Buzz Osborne, the legendary grunge progenitor who has helmed the Melvins for thirty plus years, releases his debut solo full-length album, This Machine Kills Artists, on June 3 via Ipecac Recordings.

"I have no interest in sounding like a crappy version of James Taylor or a half-assed version of Woody Guthrie," said the grunge progenitor of the 17-song offering, continuing, "which is what happens when almost every rock and roller straps on an acoustic guitar. No thanks... This Machine Kills Artists is a different kind of animal."

Rolling Stone gave listeners early access to music from Osborne's acoustic release, premiering the song "Dark Brown Teeth." The magazine described the song as "doomy, ill-angled" and with the "Beefheartian edge his band is renown for."

This Machine Kills Artists track listing:

1. Dark Brown Teeth
2. Rough Democracy
3. Laid Back Walking
4. Drunken Baby
5. Vaulting Over A Microphone
6. New River
7. The Vulgar Joke
8. Everything's Easy For You
9. The Ripping Driving
10. How I Became Offensive
11. Instrument of God
12. The Spoiled Brat
13. Illegal Mona
14. Good and Hostile
15. The Blithering Idiot
16. Useless King of the Punks
17. The Hesitation Twist
