Ideally, the older a band gets, the more it ultimately sounds like itself. No amount of slick production, Tuvan throat singers, or clumsily inserted DJs can change that. Seattle grunge band Mudhoney has seemingly always understood that, and there’s never been anything wrong with being a sloppy, fun, and consistent band. Sure, 2002’s Since We’ve Become Translucent adds the occasional horn to the mix, and 2006’s Under A Billion Suns ups the anger, but all Mudhoney albums—including its latest, 2008’s The Lucky Ones—are quintessentially wooly and weird. Unconvinced? Mudhoney recently reissued a deluxe edition of 1988’s seminal Superfuzz Bigmuff for easy comparison. The band also opened for Pearl Jam on their 20th anniversary tour. Who says grunge is dead?
