King Buzzo is the stage name used by Buzz Osborne (born Roger Osborne), best known as the lead guitarist with the Melvins, long-running proponents of the louder side of the alternative rock scene whose embrace of heavy guitars, big riffs, and slower tempos made them one of the key precursors of grunge. While Osborne's work with the Melvins (best heard on 1993's Houdini and 1996's Stag) was devoted to uncompromising hard rock, his albums released as King Buzzo -- 2014's This Machine Kills Artists and 2020's Gift of Sacrifice -- were detours into acoustic music, through the songwriting and attack was still steeped in a very similar sonic outlook.

Bassist and composer Trevor Dunn is a musical free spirit whose resumé runs the gamut from prankish rock to experimental music, the avant-garde, and jazz. He first earned a reputation for his work with the off-kilter alternative rock band Mr. Bungle, and has since performed with grunge forefathers the Melvins, arty mental ensemble Fantomas, ambitious jazz/rock group the Nels Cline Singers, and a large number of projects with avant-garde composer and bandleader John Zorn. Dunn has also recorded as a bandleader and soloist with his ensembles Trio Convulsant and MadLove.
