Bring the noise – Melvins to tour

I saw the Melvins once. They were sandwiched between two bands I really wanted to see, Skeleton Key and Tomahawk. I couldn’t find a corner far enough away from the stage to escape the noise they were creating. That was then, this is now. I still have never given a Melvins record a spin though based on some stuff that I’ve recently admitted to liking, friends tell me I’d dig the Melvins. Anybody have any suggestions of a good record to start with?

Here are some tour dates they’ve got lined up to support Nude with Boots due out early next month.
