this part of Buzzo's Village Voice interview had me laughing--
What was the thinking behind doing an album with stand-up bass? Trevor has played electric bass for you guys.Well, I saw Trevor play stand up bass with Nels Cline and I thought it was something we could do and the wheels started rolling in my head. We reinvented the band but it's just an extension; it's not going to take over. We're gonna do both things—Melvins Lite and regular Melvins.So Melvins Lite is not just a one-off thing. It will continue?I certainly hope so.And the two-drummer lineup will go on, as well?You bet. Or we'll totally go insane and overdose in the toilet like Elvis.

I have been on a Melvins kick. I really love "The Bootlicker". That record is pretty much the Melvins make a their Pink Floyd album (or close as they ever gonna get) and kinda a bit of both Syd and later Floyd at that too.

THE MELVINS' BUZZ OSBORNE RELEASES FULL-LENGTH SOLO DEBUT, THIS MACHINE KILLS ARTISTS, JUNE 3 VIA IPECAC RECORDINGS
Buzz Osborne, the legendary grunge progenitor who has helmed the Melvins for thirty plus years, releases his debut solo full-length album, This Machine Kills Artists, on June 3 via Ipecac Recordings. "I have no interest in sounding like a crappy version of James Taylor or a half-assed version of Woody Guthrie," said the grunge progenitor of the 17-song offering, continuing, "which is what happens when almost every rock and roller straps on an acoustic guitar. No thanks... This Machine Kills Artists is a different kind of animal." Rolling Stone gave listeners early access to music from Osborne's acoustic release, premiering the song "Dark Brown Teeth." The magazine described the song as "doomy, ill-angled" and with the "Beefheartian edge his band is renown for." This Machine Kills Artists track listing: 1. Dark Brown Teeth2. Rough Democracy3. Laid Back Walking4. Drunken Baby5. Vaulting Over A Microphone6. New River7. The Vulgar Joke8. Everything's Easy For You9. The Ripping Driving10. How I Became Offensive11. Instrument of God12. The Spoiled Brat13. Illegal Mona14. Good and Hostile15. The Blithering Idiot16. Useless King of the Punks17. The Hesitation Twist
