Episode 507: Buzz Osborne (of Melvins)


Two years of pandemic couldn’t keep Melvins down. In 2021 alone, the group released a pair of LPS: Working with God and Five Legged Dog, their 24th and 25th, respectively. The latter found the band revisiting their back catalog with acoustic reimaginings of 36 tracks. Last month, the group released the four-song EP, Lord of the Flies, a preview for yet another full length due out later this year. Frontman Buzz Osborne and drummer/bassist Dale Crover have remained the driving force for the band’s nearly 40-year history. Through the decades and a rotating cast of musicians, Melvins have remained a defiantly pioneering – and weird – force. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Episode 504: Buzz Osborne of Melvins


On today's episode, I talk to musician Buzz Osborne. Originally from Morton, WA, Buzz founded the rock band Melvins in the early '80s, and in 1986, C/Z Records released their first EP Six Songs. Since then, they've released over 40 more albums, EPs and compilations on record labels like Alternative Tentacles, Sub Pop and Ipecac Recordings, and while never achieving mainstream success - if that's even something they sought - the band is both sustainable and hugely influential, influencing everyone from Nirvana and Soundgarden to Helmet, Tool, Mastodon and many others. Their latest album, Five Legged Dog, a 36-song acoustic reimagining of their discography, is out now! This is the website for Beginnings, subscribe on Apple Podcasts, follow me on Twitter.

Episode 107 - Buzz Osborne

Third Gear Scratch

Buzz Osborne has cultivated and nourished the kingdom over which he and his musical partner of almost 40 years, drummer Dale Crover currently reign with particular care taken to keep the masses of MELVINS fans sated. He and his wife Mackie are the architects of not only the traditional MELVINS releases but also the  hand screen-printed, letter press and limited edition releases that are manna from heaven for their flock. We talk about their new release Five Legged Dog which features about 30 of their "hits" reimagined as all-acoustic numbers. We also talk about growing up, school, their uncanny sense of vocal harmonies, rotating bassists and his unending dark sense of humor and whimsy that has dictated and rewarded his career.

009 - Buzz Osborne / Melvins


Buzz Osborne (Melvins) explores his long history of fandom, from The Who through to The Stooges, Sex Pistols through to introducing his band and Nirvana's Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic to underground music (and Kurt's first live show, Black Flag), that time Tool backed his band on Ozzfest (and why all of nu-metal sounds like Helmet), his catalyst for making music, why Judas Priest made the best heavy metal record ever, misremembered rock myths, why the only grunge band he still listens to is Soundgarden, the movies he and Mike Patton obsess over and much more.
