King Buzzo is one of three solo EPs by The Melvins, released in 1992 on Boner Records. King Buzzo's EP most closely resembles the Melvins' sludgy output and interest in experimentation but with element of industrial in this particular release.
As part of the solo EPs, Osborne had recruited drummer Dave Grohl (Scream!, Nirvana) for the project and the only release in the Melvins' discography to feature him. Grohl is credited as "Dale Nixon", in reference to the pseudonym Greg Ginn adopted for playing bass on Black Flag's My War.
Osborne does not appear on "Skeeter" as it is a remix of the song "Just Another Story About Skeeter Thompson" that Grohl recorded for his Pocketwatch solo album. Skeeter Thompson was the bassist of Grohl's old band Scream.
The cover art for the album is a parody of the cover art from Gene Simmons' 1978 solo release.
