with Big Business at Scala.
RAH!!! Guess i cant quit work before the end of the year then...
A Human Animal: s'good, innit?
A Senile Animal!!
I like it a lot. It isn't going to win them any new fans and A History of Bad Men is a Night Goat rip off. BUT
The singing is incredible! It's almost like Queen or something. The transititions between the songs are amazing. The first seven songs are HARD BOOGIE ROCK that even my mother would love.
with FLIPPER and Big Business at the Scala. Flipper! And I have the time off work!1!
also: i want to say "hello!" to you, and then kiss you for giving me Harvey Milk.
If (when?) I get an ATP ticket you could kiss me there as well. I'll prepare myself for that!
actually, what's your favourite Melvins LP?
i don't have enough of them, and you know the back catalogue better than anyone i know, at least.
but I reckon you should find Eggnog, even though it's actually a 10" I think. That's probably the noisiest one.
Honky is great as well. 'They Must All Be Slaughtered' is the track of choice.
i largely just remember you calling "Houdini" one of their worst, which is the first one i ever heard.
"Going Blind" is my favourite light-in-the-air moment outside of "Sweet Leaf".
after they released the other version of it, even though it doesn't sound quite as heavy. Putting Pearl Bomb at the start somehow made it better. The first half of Houdini is the bestest ever, but the second half is relatively bad.
Civilised Worm from the new one is pure rock cheese with Queen style singing. I'll be holding a lighter up for that one.
I'm all over this. Should be a good show. Never seen Big Business before.
I like Houdini a lot, definitely one of their more accessible ones.
My favourites are probably 'Stoner Witch' and 'Bullhead'. I hope they do 'Boris' and their cover of 'Goin' Blind' is dopeness too. Anyobe ever heard Dinosaur Jr's version?
some legend has uploaded an entire gig from 2003 onto youtube starting here:
Heavy. Yes. Drumming.
Manchester Academy (2 or 3 I suppose) on the 13th of December. Soz to keep on with ze bumping but I thought a few people might be interested.
Plus the album is out and it's the smelliest cover art yet.
ps. got new shit & shine yesterday. it rules even more than i expected.
cos i'm back at work on the Thursday :(
New Shit and Shine! More cds to order!
I'm just intrigued by the idea of having more than one song on a cd. They've clearly gone mental. Are the songs short?
but there's one in the middle that's half an hour long and is like 'ladybird' BUT BETTER. the shorter ones are similar to the previous album (which is on a bonus cd), sort of like noisy, fuzzy butthole surfers. it's BRILLIANT.
Now on the way! Hooray. No cds til christmas rule broken within three hours of making it :D
