Pride Of Taranna Series Pt. 19: Sonic Boom #5: Jello Biafra & The Melvins – Sieg Howdy!
Without a doubt, this is the sleeper-hit of the batch I bought. WHAT A RECORD! Set the scene: I went for my nightly prowl through my local streets, good headphones and my iPod and BAM! the fucking Melvins blew my mind. Don’t get me wrong, I do love listen to Jello go off on his rants in his inimitable voice, but there were so many times I wished this record was just instrumental. The music here was absolutely killer. By the end of the thing, I had come around to liking it with the vocals too, though for me the music will always come first here. Critically, I knew this for the total prize that it is. I knew I had been pummelled, and I knew I would happily come back for more again, and again…
Hit It Or Quit It? Absolute HIT!
