|The Melvins chronology|
King Buzzo is an EP by The Melvins' guitarist Buzz Osborne, which was released in 1992 through Boner Records. Osborne recruited Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl for the project. 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.
