30 Years of Melvins
Buzz Osborne & Co. almost matched that output these past two years
DAILY Music August 9, 2013, by Tim Stegall
"...When forming the Melvins in Washington State at Montesano High School in 1983, with drummer Mike Dillard and future Mudhoney bassist Matt Lukin, guitarist/vocalist/mainstay Buzz “King Buzzo” Osborne admits that lasting three decades wasn’t even a fantasy. Tonight’s 30th anniversary show at the Mohawk is no less surprising to the 49-year-old...."
Melvins Fete Eyehategod at Housecore Horror
Latest fest addition fills in for Eyehategod drummer
DAILY Music September 25, 2013, by Richard Whittaker
"...The death of Eyehategod drummer Joey LaCaze cast a shadow over metal this year, and many expected the New Orleans legacy to pull out of its Housecore Horror set next month. Instead, Dale Crover – sticksman with the fest’s newly added Melvins – will be filling his seat in a tribute set...."
Tia Carrera's Jason Morales takes out the Lysol and sprays down the Melvins
Music Story December 1, 2006, by Austin Powell
"...In the wake of Tia Carrera's new self-titled disc on Australian Cattle God, seven jams recorded at Cacophony Recorders and the Launch Pad over the past two years, and the group's return from the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City, the Chronicle engaged Morales in an e-mail dialogue about an album that influenced the band's sessions. His choice? The Melvins' copyright-infringing, 1991 classic, Lysol, subsequently re-released as The Melvins..."
Live Music Recommendations for the Week
Here are a few good reasons to go out on a school night
DAILY Music April 30, 2018, by The Music Staff
"...If you're not too hungover from a weekend of psychedelic rocking at Levitation, check out grunge godfathers Melvins on Monday and continue with some indie and electro-folk throughout the week. So much jamming, so little time...."
King Buzzo Unplugs
Melvins’ guitarist goes acoustic?
DAILY Music July 25, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...Buzz Osborne takes a sonic sidestep on Sunday at Red 7, leaving his trusty EGC axe and Sunn Beta amp head at home in favor of a Chinese Blueridge acoustic guitar. We sparred with the ever immodest Melvins mainstay about his solo tour and new LP, This Machine Kills Artists...."
Housecore Horror Preview: Eyehategod
Mike Williams’ NOLA sludgemeisters load into Emo’s Sunday
DAILY Music October 22, 2014, by Michael Toland
"...Last year at the inaugural Housecore Horror festival, New Orleans sludge rippers Eyehategod overcame the sudden death of drummer Joey LaCaze by guesting Melvins mainstay Dale Cover at their Emo’s performance. Back with a permanent percussive anchor and first studio in 14 years, Mike Williams’ gritty crew returns for year two and possibly many more...."
Emo's stays indie. For now.

"...Ginn, Reyes, and Vallely were all sighted at the Legendary White Swan last Saturday watching Deadly Reign. While nothing's on the books yet, Vallely says touring starts April, right here in Texas.

Austin Powell debuts “Into the Void” with the Sword's Trivett Wingo
DAILY Music February 2, 2007, by Austin Powell
"...It’s not about some texture of sound that you can mosh to, not that there’s anything wrong with that, but that’s just not us. I’ll tell you what I just absolutely detest: I went to go see the Melvins recently at Emo’s and I was just standing there trying to enjoy this amazing band that I grew up listening to, in this ultimate moment of sorts for me – seeing the Melvins with Big Business setup with two drummers – and this dude just starts slam dancing in front of me, elbowing my girlfriend and shit..."
Books Story October 17, 1997, by Gina Arnold
"...The music business was like a governmental cabinet changing ministers and parties; younger people started getting better jobs in it in A & R and management. Good bands -- like Ministry and the Butthole Surfers and Soundgarden -- could suddenly be heard on radio and MTV; unusual bands, like Rocket, Shonen Knife, and the Melvins, were being treated with respect...."
Playback: Mother Falcon vs. Scottish Rite Theater
Mother Falcon's open letter to the Scottish Rite, Frontier Bar's transformation into Lost Well, and soul man Bobby Patterson
Music Column August 9, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...› Jeff Pinkus continues pulling double duty, playing in both the Melvins and Honky as they tour nationwide. Considering his ongoing tenure in Butthole Surfers, Pinkus now has the coolest rock & roll résumé in town, playing in two of the most esteemed underground rock bands of the last 30 years..."
Boris drummer Atsuo breaks the sound (and language) barrier.
DAILY Music March 23, 2007, by Austin Powell
"...Had I been able to conduct this interview after finally experiencing Black: Implication Flooding, their collaboration with Keiji Haino, or been able to ask follow-up questions, this would have taken on a different life. Still, via e-mail and a translator, drummer Atsuo unpacks the band’s bountiful and boundless avant-garde metal.

Playback: Austin Scared Stupid
Once again, everything hits at once
Music Column October 25, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...Kicking off tonight, Thursday, at the Dirty Dog Bar and continuing all weekend at Emo's and Antone's, Housecore boasts Italian prog veterans Goblin scoring Dario Argento's art-splatter classic Susperia on the reunited band's first trip to America. Look also for heavy mainstays Gwar, the Melvins, Pig Destroyer, and up-and-comers including Pallbearer and Bloody Hammers..."
Off the Record
Greezy Wheels shift their gears for a midnight ramble, Black Joe Lewis preps for the Chronicle's annual Hot Sauce Festival, American Analog Set's Andrew Kenny rewinds back to Austin, and the lineup for the 2008 Fun Fun Fun Fest is in
Music Column August 22, 2008, by Austin Powell
"..."We would have killed to open for the Melvins," nods guitarist/vocalist Jon Kelly of the Flood. "They were the first group that showed me that there was more power in playing slow." The local trio channels the Melvins' lethargic grime in a live setting, unleashing a beastly barrage of drone metal warped with its own jaded world-views..."

Mabuta no Ura
The Japanese rainbow spectrum of Boris' amplifier worship
Music Story June 27, 2008, by Austin Powell
"...Taking its name from the Melvins' Bullhead, Boris formed at Tokyo's Musashino Art University in 1992 and self-released its debut, the hourlong drone sequence Absolutego, four years later through its own label and graphic-design company, Fangs Anal Satan. Since then, the trio has issued more than 20 releases in various formats, each a complex reaction to that which preceded it..."

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2014 Friday Interviews
Music Story November 6, 2014, by Tim Stegall
"..."It's what pours out of me when I write songs," he demurs, before conceding the point. "Even Buzz [Osborne] and Dale [Crover] from the Melvins told me that when I worked with them [on 2004/2005 hard-rock gems Never Breathe What You Can't See and Sieg Howdy]..."
Housecore Horror Preview: Phil Anselmo
Pantera screamer dishes on horror, Danzig, and Superjoint
DAILY Music October 24, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...Dale Crover jamming with Eyehategod was unbelievable. Without the Melvins, the entire New Orleans thing as far as slowcore goes – I don’t know what the fuck else to call it, most media call it sludge, but we’re kind of against that around here – that slow and deliberate playing in a Black Sabbath type fashion, the Melvins were the biggest influence..."
Reelin' in the New Years
Where you gonna be when the clock strikes 12?
DAILY Music December 31, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...Thirty bands on five stages take the hip East Austin haunt back to 1994, when Sonic Youth ruled and Oasis was more than just a band of brothers who bickered over trivial shit. Exact lineups remain a mystery, but we’re hearing American Sharks will cover Nirvana, Tia Carrera shakes walls as the Melvins, and Flesh Lights guitar wiz Max Vandever recreates Teenage Fanclub...."
Housecore Horror Live Shot No.4 – Grand Finale
Goblins spook life into a long last day of extremes
DAILY Music October 28, 2013, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Honky and Skrew bore down back to back at Emo’s in touching off the evening pyre. The former, Austin rock’s ZZ Top, tipped back their front duo’s matching hats and beards while deferring all propulsion to a drummer without a beard – subbing Melvins mainstay Dale Crover – and galloped through Southern rawk with a ramrod metal spine..."
