Melvins Discussion / Re: New Interview with Buzzo
« on: August 14, 2020, 08:25:28 PM »
Personally as a lefty I think Buzz gets a bit of a bad rap as a right-winger in what is ostensibly a lefty world (the music industry or any creative arts really) but he does have some infantile political views. The whole "Nazi's were socialists because it's in their name" thing is just flat out wrong and more some childish debating point.

Aside from being fascists (far-right) the people the Nazi's killed and tortured the most after Jews were communists (far-left), which lead to them trying to invade the USSR. It's the same as trying to claim that North Korea is a democracy because it's officially in their country's name.

Blabbermouth have reviewed 'Gift of Sacrifice' and gave the album 8/10.

Quote
The artists' inherent inclination toward the bizarre and avant-garde is of course ever-present throughout "Gift of Sacrifice". However, there is something noticeably different. Buzz's body of work typically reflects a jovial and maniacal spirit. Never before has King Buzzo sounded this heartfelt and earnest in terms of his vocal delivery. His solo project was the perfect avenue for this kind of departure. We will undoubtably be treated to much more wild work from King Buzzo under the MELVINS moniker, but for now, fans of that great band, and those of Trevor Dunn and his projects, would be wise to spend some time with this stellar effort.

I just wish the guy wouldn't keep uploading tracks on bandcamp and then removing them all the time.

Any artist or label that does that I ban, never buy anything from them again and remove their back catalogue from my collection.

A grade asshole behaviour that, getting people to buy music from you and then deleting it so they can't ever download it again in future.

That is pretty ordinary that she's trying to make money off this by selling the text messages in a zine.

That was a bit off what Buzz said to Shitkid but to be expected really he's an older right-wing male and they're young left-wing women, of course they're going to butt heads. But Buzz knows better than to try and equate the struggle and repression of women with his parents not liking him, smh typical Buzz trying too hard to be offensive.

Probably been mentioned on here before but Dale Crover guest appearance with Black Sabbath Cover Band Rehearsals (BSCBR) in 2019.



Clip from this story the other day:

Quote
BLACK SABBATH COVER BAND REHEARSALS (BSCBR) — the BLACK SABBATH tribute act featuring Brad Truax (INTERPOL), Mick Barr (OCRILIM, KRALLICE), Greg Fox, Nick Zinner (YEAH YEAH YEAHS), and Angel Deradoorian (DIRTY PROJECTORS, DERADOORIAN) — has shared its version of "Sweet Leaf". The track is taken from the group's upcoming single, "Master Of Rehearsal", which is due on September 4 via Famous Class Records.

The other thing Buzz said was about Socialism and how no one ever mentions how the term "Nazi" was also part of socialism. National Socialism as it was formally back in Germany. Buzz didn''t praise Nazi's or any such cause just remarked how he finds it funny that people don't make those connections.

Yet another example of why I don't pay much attention to Buzz's political comments. North Korea ain't no democracy.

Like i say - it's like people are LOOKING to be insulted.

It seems more like you're looking to be offended.

Perhaps, but let's say yes so what? Does that automatically make Buzz far-right too then?

You're not even reading what I've said this is the second time you've done this and are you're clearly taking out on me your frustrations with other people's opinions. I'm no longer interested.

I think you (and plenty of other people online) are making a big, needless fuss about this appearance.

I'm not making a big fuss about anything whatsoever? Bit of an odd comment.

Go by what Buzz said and how he normally is - don't just react to him being on the podcast of someone who is right-wing in their opinions. I don't think that matters or relates in any way shape or form.

I'm not even commenting on what Buzz said in the interview like I said I didn't even hear Buzz speak I had already stopped the clip. The host was a bit more than right-wing he was clearly far-right.

Do you think Buzz knew the background of the podcaster prior to the interview? I get the impression with Buzz that if someone, ANYONE says to him "can i interview you?" he will merrily go along with it. I suspect that is more what happened rather than this being an endorsement of the politics. Personally though, i REALLY don't know what all the fuss is about with this. It was just typical Buzz.

I'm not implying in anyway that Buzz was endorsing this guy's politics I'm giving him the assumption of naivety as all it took was a quick search on Google to see he was an extremist. I highly doubt Buzz (or his management) would allow him to be interviewed by just anyone come on if the Grand Wizard of the KKK asked him for an interview do you really think he would do it? Of course he wouldn't.

I didn't even get to the Buzz interview I hard already bailed before then.

Would like to know more about the hubub this is causing... actually have old friends reaching out to me with screen grabs.
Can anyone speak more definitively on Buzz's politics?

He's a right-wing libertarian. I don't care for his politics but like a lot of his music so I just ignore his political opinions if I see them in interviews or whatever they're not exactly fleshed out or fully thought through just the usual "I'm alright Jack, fuck everyone else".

That aside however appearing on podcasts of far-right lunatics isn't exactly the greatest idea.

This is weird Mortiis just popped into my head the other day and I was looking up his BC page probably first time I remembered him in a decade. I remembered he had a cool song about something to do with a "suicide girl" in the chorus must be 20 years ago now so cool to see "him" on the board.

Lasted less than two minutes, what is it with right-wingers and their insatiable need to troll? You know when you're attempting to defend someone that has been arrested for supporting nazi's you should probably take stock of how you ended up in that position in life.

Buzz should probably put a bit more thought into appearing on podcasts like this. Not even a minute in and the host is already going on about the 'loopy left', fuck me right-wingers are such negative depressing people.

Nick Cave recently streamed a solo performance, with tickets going for $20, I believe. The Melvins wouldn't have a problem doing something similar, I'd think.

I'm no Bush fan really but I really liked what they just did, a full arena style show with all the production streamed plus you got a digital copy of their new album for $6 or CD for $9 + shipping. I kinda regret not doing it actually but full credit to them for thinking outside the box.

A straight stream of a live show probably wouldn't be worth it for the Melvins but if they packaged it with a new album download/CD there would likely be a lot more interest.
