Suggested Afternoon Listening: NYC Taper’s Boot Of Friday Night’s Melvins Show At Webster Hall


As documented by our own Phil Freeman, deathless, matchless sludge-rockers the Melvins joined the farewell-tour-bound Isis for a Friday-night Webster Hall headbanging spectacular, and NYT Taper was there; though Isis are audio-taping-averse, the Melvins set alone is pretty stupendous, if only for transitioning straight from the Blazing Saddles theme into a cover of Flipper’s “Sacrifice.” There’s also a bonus set from a May 2009 show wherein they play Houdini in its entirety. Download/stream/gawk at all that shit here, and make sure you have plenty of back support.
