Melvins - Live-Knitting Factory NYC - 07-29-99-Early Show

Label: Bootleg
Year: 1999

More live goodness, this time from the little ole band Melvins. A band you've probably never heard of because they hardly ever tour, they've only released a spare amount of records, their influence on modern underground music has been minimal, and critics tend to knock them. It's weird really, you'd think this band would be bigger, but I guess they just don't have that "it" factor of a Silverchair, or Candlebox, or Stone Temple Pilots. Not to mention those bands all have super-fucking-hot front men!

Anyway, if you're still reading this far down, there must be something about these guys you might like. If you asked me, their guitar tone is just too darn thick as molasses, the drums just pound too darn hard, and the songs are just too darn heavy. I wish they'd smooth their sound out a little know, like Candlebox did. Now, that, that was a great band! 

Good quality audio, a lot of "The Maggot" material, along with some other nuggets (that you've probably never heard before, because no one pays any attention to these guys).

*Re-up'd 10.22.09 - should be good now.
