You ever see a band you like doing something and think to yourself: “Wow, they’re f#&king crazy!”. Well,  here’s that moment of the week for you.


Melvins Lite ( a stripped down version of the Melvins featuring King Buzzo, Dale Crover, and Trevor Dunn)  have their debut record “Freak Puke” coming out this week. That’s great, but they’re already looking ahead.  They’ve already mapped out a tour which will attempt  to break a Guinness World Record: a tour set to hit every U.S. State in a span of 51 days ..The fastest tour in history. There is NOT ONE day off from Sept 5th to Oct 25th.

Damn, think they’re gonna need a new “Mel-Van”. All their current scheduled dates are below.. check them out and catch them in your state, because there’s a 100 percent chance they’re showing up there before Oct 25th

Jay Porks here.. I like to go to shows and pass along the experiences to you in words, photos and videos. In my spare time I do Social Media for the Meat Puppets in addition to hosting a weekly podcast. Remember folks it\'s not all about the technicalities of the situation more than it is about what the situation brings to the technicalities... The Jay Porks Experience, take a stroll my shoes for a little while...
