Melvins interview (12/2021)


With: Buzz Osborne
Conducted by: RaduP (skype)

Band profile:

Melvins


There are very few metal bands in the alternative wave that don't get trace in some way or another to Melvins. It would be hard to find earlier incarnations of sludge or drone or grunge. But besides being a pretty influential band, they always felt like a band that just did what they wanted. Switching lineups between albums, an acoustic retrospective, an album with a dozen bass players, these are just a few of the things that Melvins have done lately. So we talked with King Buzzo about some of it, while also getting schooled about how great Led Zeppelin and The Who were.

King Buzzo: Extreme metal peaked with Venom in the 80s
Radu: ok boomer

In all seriousness, great interview. I also liked the part where he was a little butthurt about you not having listened to his newest album and gets passive aggressive about it. You played it off nicely. Well done.

Yeah, this interview is... unique to say the least. I think each of us teased the other for being on different sides of the generational divide. Now I wish I told him that I had no idea who Led Zeppelin were.

I did end up listening and reviewing that album, mostly because I saw that there were no official Melvins reviews on here, and because it was the kind of album that was easy to have thoughts about.

A real character, this one. Somehow his personality perfectly reflects how I imagined him from his zany looks. Looks like you had fun!

Best part, when he asks if you heard their album, "I don't have time for that"
