The legendary grunge pioneers and veterans of the famed Sub Pop Records, sarcastic garage jokesters Mudhoney, are returning to Šiška with their tenth album, Digital Garbage, in tow!
While bands dissolve and empires fall, Seattle four-piece Mudhoney have been railing against modern idiocy and small-mindedness for over 20 years. After all, the band’s acerbic cocktail of dirty garage rock, pointed commentary and merciless rhythm section pounding is no less current in today’s climate than in 1988, when the group was among the first signees to that venerable music institution, Sub Pop Records, with its raw, catchy grunge anthem “Touch Me I’m Sick”, along the way leaving its mark on many a band that later yielded to the leisure of mainstream. If anything, Mudhoney’s views are even more suited to today – after all, is anything today really better than it used to be?
Apart from Mudhoney, obviously.
The guys last brought their gallows humour and scuzz to Šiška in August 2016. It’s thereby high time for a new dose of musical rampage, especially with the band being the angriest they’ve been in a long time in light of all the contemporary bullshit. This is definitely evident on the band’s latest album, the caustic and direct Digital Garbage (2018). Few can capture the absurdities and horrors of the new millennium as discerningly as eternal cynic Mark Arm, while his compatriots Steve Turner, Guy Maddison and Dan Peters demonstrate how it’s done with punk-sharp instrumentals. A killer evening live guaranteed!
