Print Back Archive

Buzz Osborne, the legendary grunge progenitor who has helmed the MELVINS for thirty plus years, will release 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 track as "doomy, ill-angled" and with the "Beefheartian edge his band is renowned for." Osborne is currently touring for the first time as a solo artist, wrapping up a three-week trek that included a SXSW interview session with THE STOOGES' James Williamson. Remaining dates are: March 20 at Zanzabar in Louisville, March 21 at Radio Radio in Indianapolis, March 22 at Beat Kitchen in Chicago and March 23 at the High Noon Saloon in Madison. An extensive North American tour kicking off in June will be announced shortly. "This Machine Kills Artists" track listing: 01. Dark Brown Teeth 02. Rough Democracy 03. Laid Back Walking 04.
