Melvins

The Melvins are an American rock band that formed in the early 1980s. They usually perform as a trio, but in recent years have performed as a four piece with two drummers. Since 1984, singer and guitarist Buzz Osborne (occasionally known as King Buzzo) and drummer Dale Crover have been the band's constant members. They are said to be "The Godfathers of grunge music." The band was named after a supervisor at a Thriftway in Montesano, Washington, where Osborne also worked as a clerk.

Fu Manchu

Fu Manchu is a Southern Californian stoner rock band, originally formed in 1985 as a hardcore punk band called Virulence. The line up was vocalist Ken Pucci, guitarist Scott Hill, bassist Mark Abshire and drummer Ruben Romano. They recorded their debut LP If This Isn't a Dream... in 1988, which was released on Alchemy Records (1989). In 1990, Pucci left the band and was replaced by vocalist Glenn Chivens, and they changed their name to Fu Manchu.
