Melvins Discussion / Tiny Town interview
« on: September 05, 2019, 11:44:18 AM »
Breif interview with Sir Roger Osbourne in the Tiny Town gazette:

Roger Osborne riffs on 35 years of serving up the
band’s version of sludge rock

By Matthew Denis

The Melvins are back! For the return of the ubiquitous, genre-stretching yet always sludge-rocking legends of the past 35 years, The Register-Guard sat down for an interview with lead singer Roger “King Buzzo” Osborne.

Subjects ranged from Detroit to Eugene, past to current projects and everything in between with the always on and always buzzing Osborne.
Question: Have you guys played WOW Hall before?
We have played the WOW Hall for the better part of 30 years.

Question: Wow. Okay. So that’s, that’s kind of your destination in Eugene?
We’ve played a lot of different places in Eugene. But we’ve played WOW Hall quite a number of times.

Question: I love your band. I will give you an unabashed nod as a fan of the Melvin’s for sure. I saw you guys in Jacksonville (Fla.) in this little tiny bar and
it was just incredible.
Oh, Jackrabbits. My brain remembers that kind of stuff. It’s weird. It was probably 2014 or 2015 at our Halloween show.

Question: Oh my god. That’s how do you remember that?
I don’t know. My brain holds a genius level of information, none of which I can use on a daily basis. It’s all useless garbage taking up space in there. My
wife described me as someone who had 10  conversations going on at once and it never stopped. She is a mountain — solid as a rock but  not with my crap. I like strong women, I always have. I always laugh when I hear people talk about the patriarchy. I’m like, apparently you’ve never met my wife. I don’t want some weak-willed woman that’s going to do  whatever I tell her. I want a partner. I want someone who’s smart and highly motivated, a selfstarter. Of  course, we’re different, but that’s what makes it so cool, you know? Men and women are different. I don’t want to go out with someone that’s been married to someone like me, it would be horrendous. I want somebody that is, you know, their own independent being and we come together and it’s a really amazing thing. Having said that, I really don’t (care) what other people do. That’s their business, not mine. But in my life, I’ve been in awe of the magnitude and majesty of women my whole life. (My wife and I), we independently come together and we have a massive mutual respect. And that turns into something that you couldn’t get on
your own, like a team effort. And I love it. I have been  married 25 years with the same woman. Anyway, we’re very excited about coming to Eugene.
Redd Kross is with us and Toshi Kaisi is going to open. He’s a Japanese noise artist. And we’ve written, we’ve worked with him for a long time recording. Red Cross is made up of (The Melvins) own Steven McDonald and Dale Crover. We’ve always been huge fans of  Redd Kross, so this is very exciting thing for us. They have a new album that just came out, “Beyond the Door.”

Question: It’s just been an incredible career for you. You seem to embrace all different types of music and  the kind of musicians who get out there and kind of just do it?
Oh, yeah. Vision execute, you know? And it’s like Bob Dylan said when they asked, “Why do you still do this today?” That was part of the deal I made. This is what we do. This is our life. This is our whole thing. You know, like if I was a carpenter or whatever. We are artists and exist how artists exist in people’s
lives. People go out and live their lives. And then, hopefully, they can come and we can give them something that they wouldn’t normally get out there in
the real world. And that’s the point. That’s what makes it so cool. We are fortunate enough in our society to be able to enjoy things like this almost on a nightly basis. And I think that that’s just, you know, really very important.
