MELVINS - LIVE IN WASHINGTON DC (1987)

Thought you guys might appreciate this '87 soundboard of the mighty MELVINS. The recording is quality, if a bit brief (it cuts off going into "Heaviness of the Load"), and highly recommended to fans of the band's early style. I love just about everything King Buzzo and company record. If it wasn't for CLUTCH, the mighty MELVINS would be the world's greatest hard rock band. Here's a great glimpse of how it all started.

1. Let God Be Your Gardener
2. Echohead/Piece Me
3. Vile
4. Dead Dressed
5. Your Blessened
6. Ever Since My Accident
7. Heaviness of the Load (cuts off)

The Melvins Wiki makes a good point: since Buzz introduces Lori Black (who joined the band around 1988) and mentions Mills Peninsula Hospital (located in Burlingame, California, near San Mateo) at the beginning of this show, it probably wasn't actually recorded in Washington D.C. in 1987. Matt Lukin would still have been on bass.

That aside, thanks for posting this. Still rockin'!
