Product Description

Product Description

25 years in, Vanishing Point decisively affirms that, even in an age where only the newest of the new can survive (and even then, only for a few weeks at best), Mudhoney still have plenty to say and more to offer. These are songs written from the rare vantage point of a band who went through the rock n roll meat-grinder and not only lived to tell such a tale, they came out full of the wisdom and dark humor such a journey provides. Vanishing Point is filled with dread, psychoanalysis and Nuggets-on-fire riffs; the sort of real, uninhibited rock music that is harder and harder to locate these days. With Vanishing Point, Mudhoney makes it easy.

BBC Review

It’s 25 years since Mark Arm and Steve Turner decided to call their new band Mudhoney. At almost the exact same time, fanzine writer Bruce Pavitt and his friend Jonathan Poneman gave up their day jobs to run their brand new label Sub Pop full-time.

Since then band and label have enjoyed a symbiotic relationship that’s spawned a movement, seen Mudhoney depart for a major label, and then return. Now nine studio albums in they are the great survivors of the 80s underground explosion, unbloodied and untainted by cynicism,

Forever associated with the band that came in their wake – that would be Nirvana – Mudhoney (whose Mark Arm coined the term “grunge”) have always offered a different prospect to Kurt and co’s attempt at a Beatles/Sabbath hybrid.

Theirs is a sound borne out of Nuggets-era garage psychedelia and The Stooges’ wildest scorched earth approach, and all with stoner rock foundations and an insolent skate-punk streak. It’s a recipe that they’ve never strayed too far from.

Certainly the flailing, wailing sounds they’ve been making since 1988’s Superfuzz Bigmuff debut EP remain firmly in place on an album that unapologetically adheres to an “if it ain’t broke...” maxim.

I Don’t Remember You and I Like It Small are pure, strutting Iggy petulance and Mudhoney’s world one perennially lit by lava lamps and fuelled by the dynamics of proto-punk garage rock. Chardonnay is a brilliantly acerbic, whiplash hardcore song aimed at an imaginary critic’s darling, with “the face that launched a thousand strippers”.

The Hendrix homage I Don’t Remember You and Douchebags on Parade remind that Mudhoney have always been fun. The very best of early grunge – Butthole Surfers, Melvins, Tad, Nirvana – possessed an outsider’s anti-stance of playful mischief-making and sardonic humour; a desire to see what they could get away with.

That Mudhoney still sound much like they always did is impressive. Such dynamic music usually needs youth on its side – but while Arm is over 50 and other members are closing in on it, Vanishing Point proves the quartet is still a thrilling proposition, in love with the simplicity of mayhem and volume.

Every band eventually burns out, unravels and disintegrates. All the same, 25 years and nine LPs in, Mark Arm is probably as surprised as anyone that Mudhoney are still recording and that they still don't suck. In more ways than one, maybe forever having been in the shadow of Nirvana has allowed the band to survive away from common-market glare.

In any case, the band have always been most comfortable when under the eaves of long-time running-mate Sub Pop and Vanishing Point's 30 highly entertaining minutes are no doubt in part a product of this symbiotic relationship. Thus, playing join-the-dots with hard rock, hardcore, stoner rock, nostalgic proto-punk, sludgecore and, of course, fuzzy grunge - not to mention stints of abject noise and bloodcurdling profanity - Vanishing Point is brash, loud and fun, as deeply mired in Mudhoney's own history as that of all underground rock.

Arm's strangled howl of a vocal remains as dangerous as ever, sneering its way through the tongue-in-cheek "Sing This Song Of Joy" for example and rumbling in time with the thunderous drums on "Douchebags On Parade" - the album's thrilling climax during which you're defied not to wholly embrace the warts-and-all thrills of primal rock.

Of the remainder, the guitar-heavy "I Like It Small" and the strutting "I Don't Remember You" hit like prime-era Stooges, the latter tailing off into a smile-inducing Hendrix homage.

Format: Audio CD
I should make an admission first that I am a rather ultra-humungous fan of this band (I even have pet gerbils named Superfuzz and Bigmuff) so this review will show (ahem) just a little bias!

The last two albums Mudhoney have released have really demonstrated just how strong their staying power is as a band.
This is a fine addition to their catalog and this and "Lucky Ones" are both my favourite albums I have heard from them since 1995's "My Brother the Cow". (Although I can't say Mudhoney have ever really dipped in quality) My personal favourites from the album include "Slipping Away" (The intro lead guitars are just pure fuzzed up Steve Turner awesomeness!) and "Sing this song of joy".
Whereas "Lucky Ones" showcased Mudhoney's garage-rock/punk sensibilities, "Vanishing Point" is a great blend of both Mudhoney's psychedelic side and punk rock side which brings alot of depth and density overall to the sound of the record, despite its short running time of under 40mins. Guy Maddison's (who replaced Matt Lukin after he decided against continuing with the band) bass playing really shines on this album on songs like "What to do with the Neutral". "I like it small" is one of the catchiest things they've ever come up with. Dan Peters and Guy really do make up a great rhythm section. "Chardonnay" and "The only widow of the son from nain" are the two punkiest tracks on the album. The latter combines latter day Black Flag style guitar riffage with Mark Arm's intense gut wrenching vocals. In "Chardonnay", I love how upset Mark sounds over this particular kind of wine.

Quite simply, this is the finest Mudhoney album they have released since going back to their old stomping ground of Sub Pop records, and their best since My Brother The Cow... 'What about the Neutral' takes the Mudhoney sound to new sleazy/sludgey/groove ridden heights.. A Fine Fine album. If you're a fan you're in for a treat.
