iTunes Editors’ Notes

Five years after its previous studio album, Mudhoney comes back fully charged with the kind of Iggy Pop–influenced garage punk that made it one of the most important bands to come out of Seattle in the late '80s. It's often forgotten in the whirlwind of history that Mudhoney—not Nirvana or Soundgarden—was considered the hottest ticket from the Pacific Northwest. Yet the band's insistence on sticking to grating fuzz tones and bypassing sleek, modern album production almost guaranteed it'd be a cult band until the end. It also hinted that Mudhoney would still be singing and playing with the same intensity 25 years later. Vanishing Point is one of Mudhoney's strongest albums. Vocalist Mark Arm is thoroughly focused and tossing off witticisms like "'Scuse me while I fill the shopping cart" with the same snarling brattiness he brought to "Touch Me, I'm Sick." The sound is dry and sharp and emphasizes the combustible rhythm section and the loopy, tortured guitar solos. "The Final Course," "I Don't Remember You," and "Douchebags on Parade" are what punks call heartfelt.

Customer Reviews

Chris Petrill

Another sterling gem from the Godfathers of Grunge. Mark and Steve are an amazing duo who have not lost their touch. These guys sound as good now now as they did in 1988.

Mudhoney creams the crop

I've been waiting for so long for this new album. Mark does an incredible impression of Iggy Pop on "What to do with neutral" and vintage Mudhoney rockers on the tracks "I don't remember you" and the gem "I like it small". A must for anyone who likes garage rock at its best, Mark is howling and Steve is the best!

Straight Outta Seattle!

There are many bands that claim Seattle as their hometown but Mudhoney are one of the few that actually were. I don't mean the burbs of Seattle either. Ask anyone from the Emerald City and they will tell that Mudhoney are still the Kings of Seattle! As for the new record...one word...Kickass!!

Biography

Formed: 1988 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
