The Melvins Talk About Their First Tour

Mack Williams animated this piece for Pitchfork featuring sludge metal pioneers Melvins recounting their disastrous first tour in 1986. It’s simple Flash, but the designs work and embellish the story in all the right ways.

    My favorite website is featuring a cartoon (my favorite thing to watch) about my favorite band. Pinch me!

    And listen to the Melvins.

    I would have loved to see the Melvins and RKL together!

    ha! I wish aggressive music and animation came together more often.

  • Melvins – if you want to do more animation: call me.

    Love your work.
