The Melvins

Buzz Osborne said that some concepts for the Melvins’ 30th-anniversary tour – which stops at RIBCO on July 18 – got nixed.

“My idea at first was 30 songs in 30 minutes for 30 bucks,” the guitarist/singer/bandleader said in a phone interview last month. “That didn’t fly. Or one 30-year-long set.”

Those sound like jokes, but if you’re at all familiar with the highly influential and forcefully odd band, you’ll recognize that Osborne might have at least entertained them as real possibilities. Because – major-label or car-company deals be damned – the Melvins have done things their way for three decades.

A Little Out of Whack in the Right Way: The Multiple Cat, June 14 at RIBCO

The Multiple Cat

The Return of the Multiple Cat represents the first set of new material from Pat Stolley’s band The Multiple Cat in a dozen years, but the man has hardly been slothful.

As a founder and a member of bands, Stolley was intimately involved in the Quad Cities-based Future Appletree label – active for half a decade starting in 2002. And from Daytrotter.com’s beginning in 2006 to summer 2008, he was the Web site’s primary recording engineer; he estimated he’s logged roughly 800 Daytrotter sessions and still typically records between 12 and 24 a month.

That experience, he said last week, took a toll. “For a while there, I was so depressed about music in general because of having worked for Daytrotter and seeing the amazing amount of bands and stuff out there – how much noise there is out there. It makes you just want to pick up your toys and go home.

“But then there’s this other thing: I don’t really have a choice. I’m going to keep writing songs and recording them, whether anyone is going to listen to it or not.”

Blues with a Beach Boys Dream: Rachel Brooke, May 23 at RIBCO

Rachel BrookeRachel Brooke grew up with bluegrass and country standards and in high school played them in her father’s band. Her album A Killer’s Dream (from late last year) puts that experience and her voice in a blues context.

All three of those genres share simplicity. Yet Brooke’s dream is to record her equivalent of the Beach Boys’ famously dense and unconventional Pet Sounds.

She’ll be performing with her band on May 23 at RIBCO, and you’ll hear a little bit of both aspects in her live show.
