Mudhoney: Show Preview 

Comments

The guys in Mudhoney are OG — original grunge — through and through, with résumés steeped in the tinnitus-inducing distortion of bands like Green River, the Thrown Ups, and Bundle of Hiss, not to mention drummer Dan Peters' brief stay in Nirvana. But they saved all of their best work for Mudhoney, whose superfuzz bigmuff sound, propelled by frontman Mark Arm's cheeky snarl and guitarist Steve Turner's seminal sludge, most perfectly captured the essence of the movement that defined a city and resulted in a seismic shift in popular music in the early '90s. Like many geniuses before them, the members of Mudhoney will probably have to die to get their due, but thankfully they're still alive and kicking back home on Sub Pop, with 2008's The Lucky Ones proving that well-executed scuzzy, bluesy punk never goes out of style.
