Well by bringing their earthquake powers they are mainly taking out Williamsburg. This is a good thing.

People pretend to like this shitty band only because of the Kurt Cobain connection.

Melvins <<<<< Hummus
I'd rather be in a sealed room filled with hummus farts for a week than attend a Melvins show. At least I might stay awake in the sealed room.

"they did not survive the earthquakes, they caused them."

Bingo.

I used to see some incredible shows by the Melvins in San francisco 20 years ago. Before some of you little fascists were born.

fUCKING BUNCH OF IGNORANCE!!!

Just ignore those trendy people. Don't let them taint the music for you.

Posted by Anonymous | March 22, 2011 11:48 AM

this is a good band if you like their style. the sludge dark thing isn't for everyone. I saw them at the 2nd Knitting Factory (or was it Luna?) on Metropolitan back in 2007 and they were all right... went a bit long... but just as I was about to leave they started playing "The Ballad of Dwight Fry" and totally won me over.

I wasn't keen on their Big Business partnership. Too much meandering and I can only take the dual drum solos for so long.

I'm more of a Maggot or Houdini schlub anyway.
