I could most definately see the Melvins at Coachella. Why specifically do you ask if they could play Saturday at sunset? They could... or they could play Friday during the day or Sunday at night. I just think in general, the Melvins could play Coachella.

They live in LA and play almost every month here. I don't see them getting a good slot though. Like afternoon in a tent maybe.

Yes I think they could do it, and I hope they will do it.

Late add por favor!

New album came out this last july, why not!

Melvins have never rocked the polo fields before and I think they are one of those rare metal bands that is a perfect fit for Coachella.

Pleeeeeease...

Melvins would great

...even better though would be Patton ditching Rahzel and grabbing King Buzzo and the gang and doing a Fantomas set...

Also since Patton is in the mix, they can perform at The Melvins/Fantomas Big Band

if you couldn't already tell by my username, I'd be fucking floored if Melvins played. I heard Coady (new drummer) is going to be on tour with Murder City Devils, so he might not be around for drumming duties. However, they've been doing shows as a 3 piece with Trevor Dunn (Fantomas, Bungle) filling in on bass, and they've rehearsed all the material off of Lysol,Eggnog, and Houdini so they could play as that line up and easily be able to play a full set.

Yup... The mighty Mr. Dale Crover & the bad ass Mr. Coady Willis (Murder City Devils/Big Business)!

Jesus Lizard also just got back together for an All Tomorrow's Parties event. They should do a set at Coachella as well.

What happened to the old bass player? He always looked like he was on a fist full of downers.

I assume you mean Kevin Rutmanis?


A planned European tour was canceled in early October 2004, reportedly due to unknown complications involving Rutmanis. Following the tour cancellation, Melvins finished the year playing a few shows with David Scott Stone supporting the work of filmmaker Cameron Jamie in Europe and the United States.
When asked about Rutmanis and the canceled portion of the tour, Osborne and Crover stated that Rutmanis had "disappeared". Fans feared that Rutmanis had departed like so many bassists before him; however, Rutmanis returned temporarily in early 2005. In June of 2005, Rutmanis officially left the band with drug abuse rumored as the major cause. When Melvins toured with Jello Biafra in October and November of 2005, David Scott Stone filled in on bass.
In early 2006, Crover confirmed rumors of the members of the band Big Business joining Melvins. Commenting on adding another drummer, Crover said this about Big Business drummer Coady Willis: "He's left-handed, so we want to do this 'mirror image' type of thing. We've kind of fused our two drum sets together, and we're going to try and do some crazy thing with it. We're sharing these big toms in between us."

The rest is history.

Yeah, I saw the Melvins play the Troub. w/ Big Business. I didn't care for BB (hackey, bearded, costume laden crap). I think the blonde druggie bassist was still with them. He appeared to be unwashed - like a gentile.

Honestly, I love the Melvins but they need a new set list -the shit from stoner witch has got to go . The first time I saw them it was absolutely amazing. Marginal returns from then on out. I would still see them play but only because Dale brings his A game every single time. I'm still amazed he turned shreds of metal into a workable instrument.

Gotta disagree with you on the bassist,that guy definitely holds his own. Were you at the troubadour last year? That noise jam thing they did with Crover and Coady was intense. And you gotta love the rendition of Boris they closed on. And the cover of My Generation.

I'm not going to disagree. I'm sure the bassist can hold his own. I just didnt care for Big Business. The show opened up with some stupid comedy troupe. I recall there might have been a ukulele. Maybe I just wasn't into it that night. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Nothing beats 2002 at the Troubadour. Dead Low Tide opened up. The Melvins took the stage and just stood there for 5 minutes until everyone shut the fuck up. They command respect like that. Damn, that was a long time ago.
