Album of the Day
One of the pioneers of grunge, Mudhoney helped put the Seattle scene and Sub Pop Records on the musical map at the end of the 1980s. By the time Nirvana and Pearl Jam hit, Mudhoney had played countless gigs, and the practice paid off on their fourth studio set, 1995's MY BROTHER THE COW. With former producer Jack Endino back behind the boards, the band's fuzz-fueled attack pushes needles into the red with even sharper-edged performances and songwriting on tracks like “Judgement, Rage, Retribution & Thyme,” “Into Yer Shtik” and “1995,” and the group's sense of humor is razor-like as well. The Expanded Edition of MY BROTHER THE COW includes seven non-LP single sides, and we'll give the collection a spin now to wish frontman Mark Arm a happy birthday.
