King Buzzo of The Melvins @ Mohawk on 4/19
The Melvins came to The Mohawk on 4/19 and brought the loudness with gods of NYC noise-rock Unsane as part of their tour together. Did you go? Manage to score one of those Melvins/Unsane "cagematch" splits?
Same Sack provided local support. If the name isn't familiar, the faces might be. It's a (relatively) new project that includes King Coffey (Butthole Surfers) on drums, Craig Clouse (Todd) on bass, and Matt Turner (Rubble) on... well also on bass.
King Buzzo and crew played 14 songs (or maybe 15 - if you count the "Hung Bunny" & "Roman Dog Bird" medley as two songs - the printed set list was only labeled "LYSOL") to a packed house, and judging by the volume levels, probably to the rest of the neighborhood too. Melvins' Coady and Dale took over drum-duty during Unsane's set as Vinny Signorelli was not able to make the show.
More pictures and the Melvins' set list, below...
