You've heard of Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Nirvana. But do you remember the band that really made the 90s grunge rock movement possible? Mudhoney has been credited by Billboard magazine for laying the groundwork that would shine a spotlight on Seattle, Washington as the capital of the rock & roll universe. And though they didn't quite achieve the success of their counterparts, the band recently celebrated 25 years of music making that still appeals to the masses.
Grunge rock, in its infancy, was often referred to as "high distortion sound." Mudhoney made it famous, particularly upon the release of the debut single "Touch Me I'm Sick." It would mark the start of a career for a band that has produced 10 studio albums and inspired countless musicians to follow in their footsteps.
Timing, as they say, is everything. The band scored a European tour thanks to a homegrown, grass roots media blitz that sent them through Germany in the late '80s. A few months later they joined Sonic Youth on tour, and soon became the toast of the UK press. The buzz ultimately spawned a headline tour for Mudhoney, with near-riotous shows in every venue the band played in. (In other words, if the band was considered 'underground' rock, they moved into the mainstream movers and shakers by this point).
Sure, Mudhoney didn't exactly become 'the next big thing.' But what they have done since the arrival of their first major label album ("Piece of Cake") is remain a potent live draw – right down to their 25th anniversary blowout in 2013 and beyond.
