Personalities | Mudhoney | Nineties | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1988–present)

Mark Arm (vocals), Steve Turner (guitar), Matt Lukin (bass) and Dan Peters (drums) were the band that put the Seattle Sub Pop label on the map. Now seen as the Godfathers of grunge, their loud, guitar-driven rock was encapsulated by the ‘Touch Me I’m Sick’ single (1988). Tours and mini LP Superfuzz Bigmuff (1988) cemented their reputation. Although overtaken by Nirvana, Mudhoney were significant. Under A Billion Suns (2006) was issued by a re-formed band.
