Superfuzz Bigmuff


First released as an EP in 1988 and successively rereleased over time with more songs from the era, including the band’s definitive early anthem “Touch Me I’m Sick,” Superfuzz Bigmuff confirms Mudhoney’s place as grunge avatars, with Charles Petersen’s photo and Jack Endino’s production also both key. But Mark Arm was always more one for biting humor than bleak despair, and the classic original lineup of him, Matt Lukin, Dan Peters and Steve Turner just crank up the frazzled garage punk on songs like “Chain That Door” and “No One Has.”
