On the topic of Melvins they're streaming their cover of You're My Best Friend by Queen off of their upcoming cover album.
Not bad. I know they've done similar electro stuff before, but I love how they are doing stuff that is anything but stoner metal.
1. Warhead (Venom; Guest: Scott Kelly of Neurosis)
One of the sludgiest Venom tracks. I can imagine they'll do good things with it, and Scott Kelly is always a treat.
3. Black Betty (traditional)
I like their version of this, I wonder if they'll be going for a more traditional sound as opposed to the Ram Jam sounding one.
4. Set It On Fire (The Scientists; Guest: Mark Arm)
Fuck yes. Love TheScientists
7. Female Trouble (Divine a.k.a. John Waters)
13. Heathen Earth (Throbbing Gristle)
Duff, I'd say Stag, (A) Senile Animal, and Gluey Porch Treatments are their best albums, Stag being their best. I personally think they've gotten a bit better as time went on, so don't be afraid to give newer albums a try. Also, check out Flipper, to see a proto sludge/grunge band that even predated Melvins.
So... any Amebix fans?
