At their best, the Melvins eliminate all the half-working, half-there, boring and not-really-necessary, good-enough-for-now contaminants in music. They fight their way up to the heaviest of the heavy, the slowest of the slow, the loudest of the loud. Wherever they decide they're going, they don't stop on the way. They arrive dead or alive — whichever better fits the song. Their most recent album (The Bride Screamed Murder, released last summer on "heavy insane shit" boutique label Ipecac) is one of their strongest, and for Osborne, there's no nostalgia. This residency is four nights of purity. Closer to 50 than 40, he's at what he calls the ultimate age. Why?
"I'm smarter than I've ever been," he says. "And I'm still young enough to do whatever I want."
