Snap Scene: The Melvins & Redd Kross, Max Watts, Melbourne – Wednesday 8th November 2017

Formed in Montessano, Washington in 1983, the momentous Melvins returned to our shores off the back of their new double album A Walk With Love and Death. Buzz Osborne (vocals, guitar), Dale Crover (drums) and Steve McDonald (bass) have upped the ante with their latest listen: Death is a proper Melvins’ album, while Love is the score to director Jesse Nieminen’s self-produced short film, also titled A Walk With Love and Death.

Joining the tour as special guests were seminal Los Angeles popsters Redd Kross. Not many can lay claim to influencing the likes of Nirvana, Sonic Youth, or Pavement, but brothers Steve and Jeff McDonald did just that; forming Redd Kross while still teenagers. They even supported an early incarnation of Black Flag at a middle school graduation party.
