Superfuzz Bigmuff Plus Early Singles

Band - Mudhoney
Genre - Grunge, Garage Punk
Year of Release - 1990

This is a compilation album by the Seattle band Mudhoney. It contains the entire Superfuzz Bigmuff EP, the A-sides and B-sides of 2 singles, and 2 covers from split singles with Sonic Youth and The *****.
The album is named after the band's favorite distortion pedal, Superfuzz Bigmuff was actually Mudhoney's first EP; the Superfuzz Bigmuff Plus Early Singles package collects that recording, as well as the A- and B-sides of their first two 45s and two covers (of the ***** and Sonic Youth), all released in 1988-1989. Taken as a whole, this output makes a case for Mudhoney as the first true grunge band.
This is their best and most consistent album IMO. They largely refrain from from jamming as they have on their other albums. Superfuzz Bigmuff has all the best attributes of Mudhoney's Stooges fixation. Whether slow or fast the music on this album is grimy, raucous, and violently enthusiastic. It has a stronger melodic sensibility than Iggy's band possessed. Mudhoney's dominant traits are simple chord progressions and a filthy-sounding, ultradistorted guitar racket, which are punctuated by Mark Arm's snarling, demonic howls. It contains the ultimate grunge anthem "Touch Me I'm Sick" and demonstrates Mudhoney's throttling power. "Touch Me I'm Sick" is essential for anyone even remotely interested in the genesis of the Seattle scene. The album is full of menace and sharp songwriting.

Great album. It is a must for any rock and roll, punk, and grunge fan.
With out question my favorite band along with Nirvana and this album is a good reason why.

Well done my young friend, as usual.:D

I am not a fan though, most of these bands just don't work for me, Nirvana included. Still no denying their influence on the entire Seattle scene after reading your review. I do have an album of Mudhoney's but I can't remember which one,,,it's on the other PC. I'll look a little later and see if it's Superfuzz...
