The Melvins – Basses Loaded

Cee Cee Hill, contributor

The Melvins have been around since 1983 and haven’t decided yet who will play bass with them.
For their new album, Basses Loaded they have 6 different bassists. Just for fun! No wonder they couldn’t decide because they are all great. You have Krist Novoselic (Nirvana), Steve McDonald (Redd Kross), Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle/Fantomas), Jared Warren (Big Business) and Dale Crover.

After more than 30 years, The Melvins are still rocking out. There is a mix of styles on this record. Some songs are as heavy and stoney as always. But there is also a George Harrison cover, traditional songs “Shave Cream” (a good excuse to say s**** very often) and a jazzy song, “Planet Destructo” where Trevor Dunn shows off his proficiency on the bass.

The Melvins are still making great music. Listen to this!
