I'm glad you emphasised the only reason I could be bothered to respond.

Oh, well, I already admitted as much in my reply to sarramkrop. I thought you were still pressing the case beyond opining sentiment. Sorry for my confusion.

Yeah, Melvins are a dead-end band.

Some good stuff leading to the shore of a sea of boredom.

I remember Buzzo saying that the melvins were his favourite band till he was over them.

I hear that Buzzo is a really nice person. And I'm sure that's true. Which is part of the problem. If he was a genuinely horrible person, like Varg or someone, that'd make the music at least convincing. As it is, it's just a drab wall of lifeless riffing. It's like hardcore porn with limp penises, all thrusting and no spunk.

This is true, but only if in 2010 you apply it to not just rock music, but also to much house, happy hardcore, dub, hip hop, and way too much pop music produced in this time and age, which you seem to more or less enjoy.
A lot of the rock music I like I'm dead certain hasn't been composed with a mindset that worried about what the analysis of an expert musicologist makes out of it, even the kind that seems to stretche the conventions of what was previously there, or, like I often find now, takes inspiration from the more under-explored corners of otherwise celebrated ''golden eras'' of music. I find the whole debate on the alleged antagonism between pop music/electronic music in general and guitars to be a regurgitation of British music journalism of the now distant past, since time and again, and particularly in the past decade, the instrumentation of a considerable number of rock bands has in many cases evolved from the more prominent set up consisting of just guitar/bass/drums/vox of yore.

Put me down in the veneration camp. A world without them would be as fun as a world without german chocolate cheesecake. I hope I get extra credit for the perfect pathetic stoner analogy too.

Brilliant band. Really intelligent songwriting. They take all their songs in extremely interesting directions... they're also one of the most consistently great bands of all time, up there with the Fall.

Ideas for future installments - Whitehouse, Nurse With Wound, The Cure, Black Flag, Dinosaur Jr., Yeah Yeah Yeahs, My Bloody Valentine, nearly every riot grrl band except Bikini Kill, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

How about Sonic Youth? I know, they're my favorite band of all time too, but you have to admit they could be just as easy to hate as they are to love...

But honestly, I think anyone who hates the Melvins on the basis that a good number of their songs are slow and sludgy hasn't really heard a whole lot of their stuff. Mind you, I've only got Houdini, but I wouldn't call every song on there "metal"...

I never suggested that they are a metal band, if you are looking at me, I only implied that they are shitcore.
