this machine kills artists
The legendary MELVINS FRONTMAN BUZZ OSBORNE presents, perhaps unexpectedly, a solo acoustic album.
“My main goal was to not fall prey to what happens to most rock people who do this,” he said from his home in Los Angeles. “They often end up sounding like a half-assed version of Woody Guthrie or James Taylor. That’s not what I wanted.” Indeed, there's a dark, aggressive tone throughout the album, which is hardly in the navel-gazing, finger-picking hippie vein. Heavy in its own way, this collection is not for the faint of heart nor soft of head. "Buzz remains as brilliantly manic as ever, ploughing more intensity into these 17 tracks than most bands manage in a lifetime" - The Skinny
