Melvins
Melvins core members are Roger "Buzz" Osborne AKA King Buzzo (guitar/vocals) and Dale Crover (drums). In recent years Buzz and Dale recorded and performed with various line-ups, i.e. as a four piece with the members of Big Business, Jared and Coady, who play bass and drums respectively, as Melvins Lite with Trevor Dunn who plays stand-up bass, as Melvins 1983 with Mike Dillard who plays drums (Dale plays bass in that line-up), with the former members of the Butthole Surfers, Jeff Pinkus and Paul Leary, who play bass and guitar/vocals respectively, or most recent with Steven McDonald (bass).

The Melvins formed in Aberdeen/Montesano, WA in 1983 the founding members were Buzz, Mike Dillard (drums), and ex-Mudhoney bassist Matt Lukin. Buzz, Mike, and Matt all went to high school in Montesano. The name Melvins came from a grocery clerk at the Thriftway in Montesano where King Buzzo served as clerk and vandal. Melvin was the most hated fellow employee and they felt it to be an appropriately ridiculous name.
Fartbarf
Fartbarf
We begin in the year 2008 with Josh, Dan and Brian. Three unassuming, well mannered and fun-loving fellows from a town near the sea. Regressed, mutated and collectively known as Fartbarf, they somehow bring us all into the future, captivating audiences with relentless melodies, robotically tight rhythms, and danceable beats by use of a strict limitation of tools at hand; vintage analog synthesizers, vocoders, drum machines, analog modular systems, and live drums.
SPINDRIFT
