Morning Hype! Solo King Buzzo!
I have to say that when it was announced that Melvins head honcho Buzz Osborne(King Buzzo) was releasing a solo 10" acoustic album with a tour to follow(or is it the other way around?) my interest level was about equal to my hearing that Pat Boone was doing an album of metal covers. I like my Melvins heavy, sludgy and without restraint, none of which I particularly associate with unplugged acoustic records .But then, like a good little music fan, I put my biases aside and holy shit wouldn't you know it; the first single is actually pretty fuckin good and now serves a great little teaser to what may or may not lie ahead for The King Of Sludge. Turns out opening your mind a little bit CAN be a good thing. Who knew?
