The band Buzzov*en is not named after Buzz and the song Oven from Ozma:
It is.
One more question: what does the name Buzzov*en mean, anyway? I read two explanations: (1) it was a melding of "buzzed often"; (2) it means "buzz oven," like a cooker.
It's two words I put together that I thought sounded like a cool name for a band. No deep meaning.
Kirk (or whoever answered that question) was lying.

Puredigitalsilence were a South Korean electronic band, named after the Melvins track on Prick. There's an article about them here and you can listen to them here

Excerpt:
In 2016, Kim Changhee, one of the co-founders of local experimental electronic music collective and record label dingn\dents—and a journeyman musician in his own right—introduced Cambou to an extremely rare album called Circumfluence by Puredigitalsilence. “Kim [Changhee] has been in IDM groups like Damirat and Toxicbiasfleurivy,” Cambou explains. “He’s quite low-key but he runs WATMM [We Are The Music Makers], the longest-running electronic music event in Seoul, and when he was young he was quite into the indie music scene. He found this album, liked it for many years, and later on got friendly with the band members.”

“I come from a psych music background,” Cambou reflects. “When I was younger, I was really into the shoegaze end of psych. Circumfluence combined the classic druggy shoegaze feel with a very modern and contemporary ambient sound. It’s very finely tuned and super DIY, but extremely emotional.” He had to reissue it.

Puredigitalsilence was a collective of experimental musicians led by Choi Joonyong and Hong Chulki, and named in reference to a Melvins song. In 1997, Choi and Hong, then playing together as Astronoise (one of the country’s pioneering noise music acts), teamed up with Yang Yongjun and Jeong Eunju. Using the sounds of U.K. bands like My Bloody Valentine and Spacemen 3 as a jumping-off point, they folded what we can retrospectively view as ambient and drone-synth elements into the mix, and emerged with sprawling epics that often stretched well over 10 minutes.
Gave this a listen and damn it's so good. Thanks for the pointer.
