Dave Grohl Collaboration

Queef

Recorded amidst the departure of bassist Joe Preston, each member released an EP of their own ideas (more or less). The King Buzzo EP melds Buzz with master musician Dave Grohl to create the standout track Isabella.

...Dave Grohl plays drums and some guitar on this album. That's also him talking during the song Skeeter. On the liner notes he goes by the name Dale Nixon. But you probably know that already if you read the review above.

Six Degrees of Nirvana’s Bleach

By Dave Thompson, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Whether conceived as a well-crafted musical prank, homage, or method of seeing what each member could cough up, the Melvins mirrored Kiss in endeavoring solo albums by everyone in the band. And, like Kiss, the Melvins employed the same cover art style and lettering. Hmmm? Perhaps an homage, or joke, it’s tough to tell. King Buzzo is the strongest of the three, and certainly the most akin to an actual Melvins album. “Isabella” opens with a pummeling, repeated drum line, some distorted guitar chugging, and Buzzo vocalizing something over the maelstrom. Track two is a strange, quasi-industrial loop; while “Annum” is a slight piece of understated pop. The final track, like track one, benefits from similarly loud drumming, although the vocals are in narrative form. Who provides that narration and drumming? Why, Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters, who had known Buzzo for quite some time. Oddly enough, here he is credited as Dale Nixon, due to legal issues with Nirvana’s label, Geffen. As an interesting note, Dale Nixon was the name Black Flag used on My War for the bass player who wasn’t: Greg Ginn played both guitar and bass, but credited the mysterious, non-existent Dale Nixon with that duty. – Patrick Kennedy
