Album Review

Much too often, late career live albums don’t capture the spirit of a band. This is far from the case with the Melvins. Recorded live, presumably while touring somewhere in 2008 (hard to be sure, since, like the Alive at the F*cker Club venue, the “busta-guts club” doesn’t actually exist) Sugar Daddy Live finds the sludge metalists powering through an energetic 13 songs nearly 25 years after their formation, and having a ton of fun while doing so. The lineup is the same as in recent albums, with King Buzzo backed by bassist Jared Warren, and duel drummers Dale Crover and Coady Willis. Most of the material stems from A Senile Animal and Nude with Boots, and the chemistry is evident as they take some songs into long, beastly jams. Aside from a goofish a cappella take on “The Star Spangled Banner,” there are only three songs not from A Senile Animal or Nude with Boots: “Boris” from 1991's Bullhead, "Eye Flys" from 1987’s Gluey Porch Treatments, and "Tipping the Lion" from 1986’s Stag. Still, as it is, there are loads of live Melvins releases that cover music from the early years, and many fans would agree that the band’s later material is fantastic. Not to mention that “Civilized Worm”, “Nude with Boots,” and “The Kicking Machine” are perfect live anthems.

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

The Melvins were the first post-punk band to revel in the slow, sludgy sounds of Black Sabbath. Their music is oppressively slow and heavy, only without any of the silly mystical lyrics or the indulgent guitar solos; it's just one massive, oozing pile of dark slime. The Melvins' first record was released in 1987; they've released many albums since then, but it wasn't until 1993 that they went to a major label, thanks to their protégé, Kurt Cobain....
