The Melvins and Totomoshi


Roseland (map) Northwest
Fri., Sept. 24, 9 p.m. 2010 All Ages


Any music journalist who's locked horns (tangled hair?) with Buzz Osborne knows the Melvins frontman does not give a fuck about anything—you, me, he, she, it, or them. But he does care about his band. Perhaps it's why the Melvins are heading into their third decade, outlasting most of their peers and probably a few cockroaches as well. It doesn't hurt that King Buzzo and longtime crony/drummer Dale Crover keep reinventing the band, while staying true to the sludgy mess they made back in 1983(!). The Melvins steamroll through more psychedelic metal on their latest LP The Bride Screamed Murder with some help from the kids in Big Business, who brought some extra heavy mettle to their last two records. And as the Melvins get louder, and as Osborne's hair gets bigger and his disposition more cantankerous, there appears to be no end in sight. MARK LORE
