Advertising Information for vagmusic
Mudhoney is a grunge band that was formed in Seattle in 1988. This band is named after a movie of Russ Meyer. The members of Mudhoney are: Mark Arm (vocals and guitar), Steve Turner (guitar), Dan Peters (drums), and Guy Maddison (bass). Former members of Mudhoney include Matt Lukin (bass from 1988 to 1999 and 2000 to 2001), Wayne Kramer (bass, 2000) and Steve Duckich (bass, 2001). In 1988, Mudhoney released “Touch Me I’m Sick”, their first single; it was released on the Sub Pop label. They also released an EP called Superfuzz Bigmuff. This album enjoyed moderate success in the United States but the band was able to go on a few tours in Europe, mostly with a band called Sonic Youth. They admired Mudhoney and asked them to go together on a tour in England in 1989. The tour was a success; it was widely covered by the press in Europe. In 1989, the band released Mudhoney, their first full length album.

The success that Mudhoney began to enjoy propitiated the recognition of other Seattle bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden and Tad. After the release of their second album, Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, Mudhoney signed a record deal with Reprise Records. After recording three albums with Reprise Records, the label released Mudhoney due to their low sales. The band returned to Sub Pop and recorded two albums, one in 2002 and the other in 2006. Some songs of Mudhoney are: “Blinding Sun”, “Generation Spokesmodel” and “Night of the Hunted/Brand New Face.”
