We’ve always loved playing covers. When we decided to put this together, we picked songs that influenced us. That’s why a lot of it is pretty old. I was a huge Bowie fan since I was 12 years old. That was the first “punk” rock I got into in the Seventies. I didn’t find out about a lot of the other stuff that was going on, like New York Dolls and Roxy Music, until a lot later.
A fan threw a bottle at the Melvins' Buzz Osborne during the band's August 19 show in Vancouver, Canada. A few seconds later, Osborne unplugged his guitar and delivered a few choice words to the audience — and that was that. Show over.
