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!
