Watch: Melvins Talk About Their 1986 Tour on Pitchfork.tv’s Animated Series “Frames”
Features a cameo from a pre-Nirvana Krist Novoselic. Watch here.
The main thing about that [1989 Nirvana/TAD] tour was just laughing. It was always, ‘What could we do that would be funny?’ Like somehow they got hold of some Arnold Schwarzenegger exercise video, and Kurt Cobain made a cassette tape of Arnold Schwarzenegger saying things like ‘Sexy, slim waist’ over and over. During some of the shows, my instructions were that whenever there was a gap between songs, I would bring this cassette in, so between Nirvana songs you’d hear Arnold Schwarzenegger going, ‘Sexy, slim waist.’
From last night’s Soundgarden tour opener, in Toronto.
