"Sure it's not just me, but every time I see the Melvins I think @reggiewatts needs to do a cover." -Dusty Rose

"Melvins show at Webster reminded me how vast/sturdy their catalog is. Songs from Lysol, Nude w/ Boots, Bulls/Bees, Stag, Senile Animal, more" -Hank Shteamer

Melvins & Unsane @ the Mohawk (more by Tim Griffin)
Melvins

Melvins teamed with NYC noise-rock gods Unsane to lay waste to Webster Hall last night (4/29), part of their tour together that recently swung through Austin and hit The Mohawk (pictures). The pairing is a wet-dream for fans of the Amphetamine Reptile roster, and the show was also special, if you want to call it that, due to Unsane's lineup on stage. Vinnie Signorelli is recovering from an undisclosed illness and so the Melvins drum duo sat in for him (wow).

Melvins' set has remained somewhat constant for the duration of their tour, dipping into classics from Lysol and even covering the Wipers classic "Youth Of America" (which appeared on a 12"). Did you go? If so, did you score that Melvins/Unsane split?

If you missed the show, at least you can live vicariously through video. The Melvins performed "The War On Wisdom" on Last Call with Carson Daly on April 25th and someone captured all of a recent Unsane set (with Coady and Dale). Videos and recent setlists below.....

10:38 - The green room ran out of food, so Fatty McFatson (Melvins) ate the setlist, then proceeded to eat the curtains, furniture, and carpet. When I left, he was gnawing on some photag's arm. Dude can eat!

Melvins are great. Never understood Unsane. They are like a second rate Helmet.

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2012 1:38 PM

genius by definition and thru history has Always been misunderstood. statistically speaking you all probably don't can't and therefore won't ever understand its true genius. for the rest of us if you do get it you know it cuz you feel it viscerally. talking about Melvins. Unsane rocked too but cmon people.

UNSANE!!!

Unsane killed it. But the Melvins bored me, way too much fuckin' around from them. Nowhere near as vicious as Unsane.

Melvins setlist was the same as the one posted above. Anyone know the Unsane setlist?

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2012 4:00 PM

They did a Flipper song and it aint on any setlist.

i've seen melvins a ton of times. last night was great. how could you talk shit about that show? wack!

"i've seen melvins a ton of times"

interesting word choice. did you have a whale of a time? was it heavy? i always said that no one's guitar tone is as fat as the melvins.

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2012 9:34 PM

Unsane did some interesting shit back in the day but weren't all that. I could take 'em or leave 'em. Not bad but not great. Total 5 to 6 out of 10 rock.

Posted by D | May 1, 2012 12:31 AM

Fatty McFatson had a huge guitar sound

Posted by Anonymous | May 1, 2012 7:53 AM

You clowns. As always, the Melvins were awesome. Extra props given because they played that crushing song from The Maggot.

Unsane were ok, kinda boring though.
