9781780386669: Mudhoney: The Sound & The Fury From Seattle

Mudhoney is a rock band which emerged from the late 80s Seattle.  Achieving critical acclaim but only a modest degree of commercial success, they were soon eclipsed by another band from the same city playing a similar strand of music - Nirvana.  Mudhoney's 1988 debut Touch Me I'm Sick was declared the single of the decade by Kurt Cobain.  the book features extensive interviews with the band.

About the Author:

Keith Cameron has worked for Sounds, NME and Mojo magazines.  He's interviewed numerous artists including Nirvana, Iggy Pop, U2, Lou Reed and the Foo Fighters.  His writing has also appeared in Q, Kerrang, the Guardian and the Times.  He has also been a DJ on XFM.

Review:

"While they never enjoyed the commercial and popular success of Nirvana or Soundgarden, Mudhoney is one of grunge's seminal groups. Formed in the suburbs of Seattle in 1988 out of the ashes of the protogrunge band Green River, which included future members of Pearl Jam, Mudhoney went on to help define and influence the metal/punk musical genre that went global in the early 1990s. In this first full bio of the group, ­Cameron (contributing editor, Mojomagazine) stakes a claim for the band as one of the key pioneers and innovators in the scene. The author's history of the group is deftly doneâ??a compelling combination of setting the scene from which they emerged and letting the musicians tell their own story. While it is primarily a book about Mudhoney, it is necessarily a memoir of the grunge scene, and should be considered alongside key titles such as Michael ­Azerrad's Our Band Could Be Your Life and Mark Yarm's Everybody Loves Our Town.VERDICT Because of its exhaustive detail about a lesser-known (if highly regarded) band, this book will have specialized appeal to Mudhoney and grunge fans, and moderate appeal for general music readers." â?? Library Journal



". . . a superb, life-affirming book; as much an important reappraisal of an influential band as it is the story of the people, time, place and sound that changed rock forever. . ." â?? George Garner, Kerrang!



". . . deep reporting and prose that crackles like well-loved punk vinyl. . ." â?? David Fricke, MOJO



". . . probably the best book written about grunge, its contradictions and conflicts, its successes and ingrained capacity for self-sabotage." â?? Paul Brannigan, Classic Rock



"Mudhoney: The Sound And The Fury From Seattle (Voyageur Press) is an in-depth look into the band's whole long life, featuring interviews with all five band members, label folks, and members of Sonic Youth, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and more. It's a story that goes beyond just the band, but then "just" Mudhoney went pretty beyond itself. Author Keith Cameron is a longtime British rock journalist who's chatted up loads of biggies for NME, Sounds, Mojo, the Guardian and more, and was down with all that flannel action from the get-go." - CMJ.com



"A must-read for anyone who wore plaid in the '90s." â?? Niall Doherty, Q



"One of the better books to come out about the Northwest music scene." - SeattleTimes.com
