Killing Them Softly: The Return of King Buzzo

But as Melvins fans are well aware, an open mind can yield great rewards. Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend,” for example, certainly doesn’t scream “Melvins material,” yet it found itself on Everybody Loves Sausages and sounded terrific. As did Paul McCartney’s “Let Me Roll It” off ‘Freak Puke.’ The phrase “expect the unexpected” is trite and overused, but it certainly applies to the Melvins.

The art of tattoo has always fascinated Sioban Kozisek (“Chevy”). She got her first tattoo when she was attending boarding school in Ireland. “I was 16-years-old and I had a fake ID to say I was 18,” Kozisek recalls. “I found some little dive shop above a pub in Cork City and decided to get a yin yang on my shoulder.
