Album Review

Described by Mark Arm on release as a chance to get new songs out for fans in between albums — which might not sound important, but for a band on an album-centric major label still counts for something — Five Dollar Bob's Mock Cooter Stew is part compilation, part collection of new goodies. One cut is a spectacular re-recording from the previous year's Piece of Cake, "Make It Now," here titled "Make It Now Again" and taking no prisoners from its heavy-duty psychedelic start, while two further efforts, "Deception Pass" and "Underide," had previously appeared on Piece of Cake-related singles. Of the four new songs, meanwhile, they're a rough but engaging little blend. "In the Blood" is one of the more restrained and almost personal cuts Mudhoney ever recorded, with a mid-range pace and a slightly queasy organ part setting a downbeat mood that Arm resignedly sings over. "No Song III" keeps things from being too down, though; this time around the analog synth creates an almighty buzz that Suicide could have been proud of while the foursome rips along at a fast clip, Dan Peters showing some sharp drumming flair as he goes. "Between You and Me Kid" explores a newer touch for the group, with a honky tonk country touch that hints at the following year's collaboration with Jimmie Dale Gilmore. "Six Two One," in contrast, sticks to Mudhoney-qua-Mudhoney, garage rock straight up that looks in the face of grunge's success and laughs.

Nirvana may have been the band that put an entire generation in flannel, and Pearl Jam and Soundgarden both sold a lot more records, but Mudhoney were truly the band that made the '90s grunge rock movement possible. Mudhoney were the first real success story for Sub Pop Records; their indie-scene success laid the groundwork for the movement that would (briefly) make Seattle, Washington, the new capital of the rock & roll universe; and they took the sweat-soaked and beer-fueled mixture of heavy metal...
