Performer Notes
  • Personnel: King Buzzo (vocals, acoustic guitar).
  • Recording information: The Sound of Sirens Studio.
  • After nearly 30 years in the Melvins, it's hard to say how much guitarist and founder King Buzzo -- also known as Buzz Osborne -- still hopes to do musically that he hasn't done just yet, but he's crossed two items off his bucket list in one stroke: he's made his first full-length solo album and recorded his first acoustic project at the same time. This Machine Kills Artists finds Osborne armed only with his acoustic guitar and his voice (along with some discreet overdubbing) as he pounds through 17 songs that bear a fairly strong melodic resemblance to his traditional style. The buzzy report of Osborne's acoustic lacks the titanic force of his traditional Les Paul axe and Sunn amps, but the tone isn't as dissimilar as one might think (especially since he seems to have tuned down on a few cuts), and the songs conform to Osborne's typical lyrical and musical obsessions (any album with songs titled "Dark Brown Teeth," "Drunken Baby," "How I Became Offensive," and "Useless King of the Punks" would appear to be right in Buzz's wheelhouse). Without a bass and percussion, This Machine Kills Artists sounds like the Melvins with the power off, and it's a worthy experiment that sometimes succeeds. ~ Mark Deming
