The music video for Coliseum’s “Bad Will” — one of many addictively visceral tracks on the band’s just-released fourth album, Sister Faith — is shot in vérité-style black and white as

Everybody Loves Sausages, the 21st (or so) recording in the Melvins’ improbable 30-year existence, features 13 cover songs that, according to founder/frontdude Buzz Osborne, “will give people a peek into the kind of things that influence us musically.”

Unlike many groups who may draw a “music lesson” crowd that tends to sit on its hands and complain when somebody dares to stand up and trance up, Mule audiences rock it from note one. The band’s upcoming gig at the Taft Theatre this weekend should be no exception.

At age 14, Sean Scolnick started writing his first songs, penning Nirvana-inspired missives about authority, school and “stuff that a lot of 14-year-old kids probably write about.” Now in his early 30s, Scolnick doesn't employ those subjects as inspiration anymore.
