Playlist: The Melvins

Melvins mainman Buzz Osbourne likes to switch it up when it comes to his playlist.
He's rocking everything from The Who to Captain Beefheart right now, and that eclectic side definitely bleeds over onto the Melvins' forthcoming remix release, Chicken Switch [Ipecac Recordings]. Due out on September 29, Switch gave various remixers the chance to chop up a Melvins album and make one song out of it. The results are quite mind-bending…
ARTISTdirect.com spoke to Buzz about his playlist for this exclusive feature. Check it out below and pick up Chicken Switch when it releases on September 29.
Buzz Osbourne's Playlist:
1. Miles Davis
The last album that I listened to was Bitches Brew by Miles Davis. That was yesterday. I haven't had time this morning yet. I like Bitches Brew, and I like the On the Corner record. By and large, I don't usually like most of his stuff. A lot of his best stuff is from the Bitches Brew and On The Corner sessions, they just chopped it into different records. The stuff he did before that is just like elevator music. I like the weirder stuff.
2. The Who
I was always a huge fan of The Who. I've been listening to a lot of their stuff. That was one of my first and favorite bands ever.
3. Captain Beefheart
I was listening to a little bit of Captain Beefheart recently. I like the two records that most people don't like. I dig "Clear Spot" and "Spot Lake."
