Product Description

BBC Review

Before it became the birthplace of grunge, the Pacific Northwest city of Seattle was probably best known as the birth place of Jimi Hendrix, and whilst Hendrix had to up sticks and go and seek out the wider world, true to type, the nascent grunge movement with its slacker slouch turned up the max shrugged its shoulders, skinned up and hung around for the world to come and find them.

That the world took any notice or even cared at all, was probably due to the sounds emanating from Sub Pop Records and a clutch of proto-grunge releases by the likes of Green River. Having pretty much knocked together the whole grunge template, when Green River washed up in 1988, guitarists Mark Arm and Steve Turner formed Mudhoney as a vehicle for their continuing and most excellent adventures in sound.

Whereas Nirvana tended toward solemnity and sonic belligerence, the overriding Mudhoney vibe is one of surprisingly good humour. There’s a lot of fun to be had. “Who You Driving Now?” detonates spiky parcels of distortion at such jaunty angles it’s impossible not to warm to it. “Generation Genocide” pokes fun at the dopey jam-band vernacular, whilst “Judgement, Rage, Retribution and Thyme” sticks the finger at self-reflecting obsession with a smattering of slide and marimba that suggests Zappa and Beefheart can’t have been too far away from the turntable that day.

As eclectic as they are electric, they have an unshakable belief in the rightness of the fuzz pedal: “A Thousand Forms Of Mind” giving vent to a Black Sabbath fixation and a more than credible Ozzie impersonation. Disc 2 also has a smattering of cover versions including a previously unreleased wacky take on Roxy Music’s “Editions Of You.” Homage to Elvis Costello can also be found in a very faithful, though uneventful, “Pump It Up,” included here for no other reason than they like playing it and I suppose, that’s reason enough.

Released in 2000, March To Fuzz marshalled a bunch of rarities, b-sides and a career through-view into an indispensable package that actually lives up the 'best of' moniker. --Sid Smith

5.0 out of 5 stars unbeatable garage punk 22 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For me, Mudhoney are possibly the most underated band of all time. Overshadowed by bands who idolised them, these fellas seem happy to disgust MTVites with their lovely racket.
The first CD, the 'best of' conjures up some great songs including the obvious classics 'Touch Me Im Sick', 'Suck You Dry', 'Sweet Young Thing..' and the like aswell as the lesser known songs such as 'One Thousand Forms of Mind' and 'Into Yer Shtick'. For me these are the standout tracks, but its one of those albums you can play all the way through due to the variety of styles in the songs and the humour that runs through almost every track.
The second cd is a mix match of covers, b-sides and random songs. Here Mudhoney's humour (which makes them my favourite band) shines through, especially with tracks like 'Hey Sailor'.
the general message is go buy it..NOW, run! faster!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mudhoney at their fuzzy wuzzy best 21 April 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a must for all Mudhoney fans whether you already have all the albums or not, as it includes rare tracks and B sides as well as the better known songs including In 'n' out of grace, Who you drivin' now and Touch me I'm sick. All in all great value as you get 52 tracks on two CD's for your money!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Grunge Gods 12 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is, without question,Mudhoney's finest hour. From the bludgeoning opening of 'In 'n' Out Of Grace', to the inwardly pointed emotions of regret and hate in 'I have To Laugh', through the bitter acceptance of 'You Got It', to the melodic 'If I Think', and then into the way 'Touch Me, I'm Sick' actually sounds sick. This is undoubtedly Dirge, or 'Grunge' at its finest.
Mudhoney area band who can instigate the base human emotions through their simple, but effective style of playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why you should buy this album: 3 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this in the knowledge that Mudhoney was part of the whole grunge movement. I got into this kinda stuff through Nirvana, then Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. I have to say this best of is amazing, its quite diverse and not as monotoned as people believegrunge is/was. If you like Nirvana, particularly the Bleach, In Utero or Incesticide- buy this album- and remember Mudhoney were before Nirvana!!!
