The Melvins



For those who don’t know:
The Melvins have been a band for over 25 years…

The Melvins have done a shit load of albums…. How many is a shit load? No one really knows.


The Melvins have four members.
King Buzzo… Longest surviving and only original member left. When they get around to replacing him there will be no original members!
Dale Crover… Long standing drummer and part time guitar player. Dale likes his booze in a High Ball glass.
Jared Warren… Bass player, singer and part time drama geek. Jared also plays in the band Big Business.
Coady Willis… Drummer. Coady has a funny story about trying to play a gig in leather pants. Ask him, it’s funny as shit! Coady also plays drums in Big Business.

So there you have it!
You can find other interesting bits and bobs about the Melvins on line and some of it is even true! Well, it’s at least as true as what the band would tell you in person.


Battles + Young Montana?


Battles fans, rejoice! Gloss Drop, the year’s most hotly anticipated record, is almost with us. Featuring guest appearances from Gary Numan, Matias Aguayo and Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino, get ready to fall in love again.


Capsule are excited to announce that Battles will be visiting Birmingham during their extensive worldwide tour.

Here’s footage from when they played back in 2007:


Young Montana? With an exhilarating new style that is raising the bar for sound collage artists to an unheard-of altitude, Young Montana? chops beats into being on a hypercolor canvas that is saturated with soul and lit with innovation.

Few producers can make music this multidimensional that is also fun on the dance floor, but 20 year-old Young Montana? works both the technical and psychological sides of the beat with equal finesse. Combining the rich hues of nostalgia from manipulated samples with futurized beat magic and an avant-garde style, Young Montana?’s experimental hip hop is smartly structured and swung out through a warm haze of grime, soul, folk, and glitched-out machinations.
