    So what I'm hearing is that we need a 'should Urban be fired?' thread.

    I think he was just standing his ground. That woman wanted his seat at the bar and he was not about to yield.

    Well… I guess I’ll have to look up whatever “grind” is… and whoever these bands are.

    Big CARCASS fan - especially Bill Steer

    Recently bought a used Ibanez RG 270
    That was my first guitar in '94 and I chose it because I saw Bill Steer play one in some Metal magazine.. Floyd Rose Trem FTW !

    Absolutely, amigo! I love all things sludge, grind, stoner, doom, you name it.

    One of my first shows when I was 14 was Tool supported by the Melvins in 96. I thought the Melvins sucked! Looking back, it might have been one of their “let’s annoy the audience” shows. It probably didn’t help I was a timid kid a mile away from the stage and the show was at a minor league hockey arena.

    Now, they’re one of my all time favorite bands. Even so, the Melvins are a little like Prince or Frank Zappa, in that they have a huge catalog and 1/3 of their stuff is transcendent, 1/3 is fun but forgettable, and 1/3 is absolutely painful.

    I rediscovered them the traditional 90s rock kid way - through Beavis and Butthead:



    This one ALWAYS gets me going. I want this song played at my funeral and everyone must mosh. My embalmed corpse will come back from the dead

    I used to The Flippers guy-o on a regular basis, the cost of having a good time certainly chewed them up and spit them out .
    Ted used to be around on a regular basis, his playing really changed how I perceived guitars and what could be done with them. I saw them flipper at the opening of the film emerald cities and it certain helped improved the room as the film crowd projectile vomited and headed for the fire exits. I saw Flipper open for Public Image it was early , in local punk time and thought I could not figure out the agreement the band had, I liked it a lot particularly when the singer chanted drop kick for a long time as the band played on. It as a lot of fun. What do you get when you cross Avant guard free form jazz and noise = :D Flipper with out the degrees from Julliard. David Yow, I think would make a great singer for Flipper.

    Knock knock.

    Who's there?

    I'd.

    I'd who?

    I'd kill Flipper for a Tuna Sandwich

    that's great ! whoopie! Man the way band get name is so frigging ridiculous reviewers and all the genre folks are just stuffed full of that old phony stuff, spread in on the fields see if anything grows you know what I mean, the intellectualization of guitar, bass ,drums and screamingvocals doesn't require an M.A. in anthro-musicology.
    WE like noise it's choice
    It's what we wanna do

    Any questions?

    I'm pretty sure there ain't no Grind bands anywhere near Bakersfield. I'm either way too young, or way too old for that kind of stuff! I never heard of it before, I'm going out to the golf course here in a little while, and I'm gonna try and leave the image of that guy playing a guitar with a Whoopi Goldberg wig on while wearing an ugly dress out there on the third fairway. Maybe the ducks will eat it.

    I've listened to Melvins and Flipper. My appetite for it is pretty small these days, but sometimes I get a craving. The last sludgey thing I saw live was two Bongzilla members playing as a duo in a small bar. Very loud, very slow, hypnotic.

    Flipper? Seriously?

    He said he’s feeling really sick, really sick. He said he’s gotta get away.
    Go Mitchell, get away, go go get away.

    The Old Lady Who Swallowed the Fly single from 1982!

    And if you’re observant, you’ll see the straight up A hole move, 1 side is 33 and the other side is 45. I loved them for reasons like this.

    Because you know Flipper and the Melvins, or because you don't?
    These are very old bands, they're just not arena rockers.

    I was once a writer and interviewed Tiny Tim. I asked him what made a song “good.” He said, it has to be hummable. If it isn’t, then it has no melody. What makes me feel old is that 1) Tim wasn’t that old at the time; 2) I agreed with him; and 3) it was a time when melody mattered . . . .
