(Neumos) Heavy-music stalwarts the Melvins have been at it for 30 years. For perspective, it's helpful to take in Mangled Demos from 1983. Released in 2005, Demos starts with a hilarious "Elks Lodge Christmas Broadcast," in which the radio announcer interviews Buzz Osborne, then–bass player Matt Lukin (who would later go on to Mudhoney), and then-drummer Mike Dillard (who recently went into the studio with Osborne and Dale Crover on bass to cut Tres Cabrones), all 18 or 19 years old. The following songs demonstrate the blueprints for how the Melvins would influence Nirvana and a whole slew of other bands that went on to more notoriety. Of course, now the Melvins are an entirely different beast than they were in 1983, having folded in Jared Warren and Coady Willis from Big Business, but 30 years later, they're still innovating and cutting quality records, and they're still heavy. Respect. With Honky.
