The 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of Mudhoney’s Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge is out July 23 + the “new” video for “Ounce of Deception” is out today

On July 23rd, 2021, Sub Pop will release the remastered 30th-anniversary deluxe edition of Mudhoney’s Every Good Boy Deserves Fudgethe Seattle group’s classic second full-length album. This expanded release will include the original album in its entirety as well as a 15-track bonus LP and CD of additional material, with 7 previously unreleased songs. The album also includes liner notes from Mudhoney biographer (Mudhoney: The Sound and the Fury from Seattle) and MOJO journalist Keith Cameron, as well as new cover art, archival band photos, and a full-color fold-out poster. The first run of LP’s will be on colored vinyl.


 
In celebration of this upcoming, momentous release, please enjoy the new video for “Ounce of Deception”! This track was previously released as the b-side to the 1991 “Let it Slide” 7”, and was also included on the 52-track compilation of Mudhoney smash hits and rarities, March to Fuzz (orig released in 2000 and now only available on the increasingly unpopular CD format). The video was directed by Duncan Sharp, and features wonderfully entertaining, vintage footage of the group performing live. 


Preorders for Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge: Deluxe 30th Anniversary Edition are available now through Sub Pop. LP preorders from megamart.subpop.comselect independent retailers in North America the UK, and Europe will receive the first pressing of this release on light blue (LP1) and red (LP 2) vinyl.
 
Mudhoney will also release a limited-edition split 7” single with Meat Puppets for Record Store Day 2021. This split single features two exclusive cover songs: “Warning,” performed by Mudhoney and originally by The Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation (and famously covered by Black Sabbath); and “One of These Days,” performed by Meat Puppets, originally written by Earl Montgomery and first popularized by George Jones. This release is a Record Store Day 2021 exclusive, and it is limited to 2,500 copies.

More about Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge: Deluxe 30th Anniversary Edition:
“When in doubt, fudge it.”
On September 19, 1990, perhaps with an eye on the daily news reports of US forces massing in Saudi Arabia in preparation for an assault on Iraq, Mark Arm recorded a version of Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War,” at Reciprocal Recording studio in Seattle. Mudhoney fans might have been surprised to learn that the voice of such mindblown anthems to oblivion as “If I Think” and “In ‘n’ Out of Grace,” was now taking on the definitive antiwar song. The times were indeed a-changin’ – both for the world, and for Mudhoney.
           
During the same Reciprocal session with engineer Jack Endino, some further work was done on a recording from earlier that same year. On May 19, Mudhoney had taped five songs at Music Source, a large studio in Seattle’s Capitol Hill district. Endino was behind the desk then – as he had been for 1988’s catalytic debut double-A side “Touch Me I’m Sick”/”Sweet Young Thing Ain’t Sweet No More,” the Superfuzz Bigmuff mini-album and 1989’s self-titled LP – and this session was notionally the start of the next Mudhoney album. But the fact that nothing had been done with these recordings after four months told its own story. 
           
“We decided we didn’t much care for it,” Steve Turner says today. “It didn’t sound right to me, it sounded a little too fancy, too clean. It didn’t have the dirt.”
           
Mudhoney hadn’t gotten where they were by sounding a little too fancy. “Touch Me I’m Sick” made a virtue of its tactile grubbiness – and in so doing, ignited a generation aesthetically jaded by pop culture always equating sophistication with progress. Yet now Mudhoney were apparently acquiescing to the same principle. During the few months which separated “Touch Me”/”Sweet Young Thing” from Superfuzz Bigmuff, Reciprocal had upgraded from 8-track recording to 16, and it was on this higher spec machine that Mudhoney had recorded both their mini-album and debut long-player. Granted, in the context of songs like “Here Comes Sickness” and “Flat Out Fucked,” ‘sophistication’ was a relative term. But as Mark Arm subsequently observed: “There was a grittiness to that very first single that never quite got recaptured.”
 
The Music Source session utilised 24 tracks, distancing Mudhoney even further from their raw essence. Unhappy with the recordings, Steve Turner instigated a change of direction. He noted that Thrillsphere, the cool new album by Tacoma WA garage rockers Girl Trouble, had been released by PopLlama, a record label run by Conrad Uno out of his house in Seattle’s U-District. In the basement of that same house, Uno had a recording studio, named Egg after the cartons pasted on the walls in an optimistic attempt at sound-proofing, which also boasted a ’60s vintage 8-track Spectra Sonics recording console, originally built for Stax in Memphis. 
           
In the two-plus years since Mudhoney’s official inception on January 1, 1988, Turner had become worn down by the routine of what increasingly felt like a career as a professional musician – something he’d never aspired to. One benefit of the band’s frequent visits to the UK in 1989/90, however, had been the ready availability of cheap original era punk singles, which Turner brought home by the box-load. He proposed a twin-pronged palate-cleansing operation.
          
“My idea was, why don’t we go check out Egg Studios, go in there for a day and record a bunch of punk covers, and see what it sounds like. I called Conrad, and said, ‘This is Steve from Mudhoney. We want to come in there and record with you.’ He started laughing, and just said, ‘Why?!’ I figured that bode well for Conrad! (read more at Sub Pop).
