The first day of the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in NY, September 2010 will feature the following “Don’t Look Back” performances:
Iggy and The Stooges performing Raw Power
The Scientists performing Blood Red River (in their first-ever US show!)
Sleep performing Holy Mountain Mudhoney performing Superfuzz Bigmuff
This is all on the Friday of ATPNY, on September 3, 2010. And, there’s lots more still to be confirmed. You can read the full press release here. And there’s more info on all things ATPhere.
We can only hope (with apologies to Motorbooty) that the concession stands at Kutsher’s next year will be offering commemorative fare for this event. Prepare to dig in to such delicacies as Strawberry Shake Appeal, Set It on Fire Flamin’ Hot Chili, Superfudge Bigmuffins, and Sleep’s Holy Mountain Oysters.
On November 13th Mudhoney will be playing at Neumos in Seattle with Brothers of the Sonic Cloth (Tad Doyle’s band) and Unnatural Helpers. The show is a celebration of Michael Lavine’s new book titled, Grunge. Michael has taken numerous photos of Sub Pop’s artists over the years and many of them go way, way back. The book is pretty frickin’ amazing. You can see some of them in this video. Check it out and come join us. It’ll be fun!
If you’d like to have a copy of the book autographed by Michael, you can catch him at the following locations:
Friday, November 13 there will be a signing at noon at:
509 East 4th Ave
Saturday, November 14 at 4pm there will be a signing at:
Easy Street Records & Cafe
4559 California Ave SW # 200, Seattle, WA
As you, discerning, attentive music fan, have undoubtedly noticed, we’ve recently been giving ourselves some well-deserved, showy pats on the back by reissuing some stand-outs from the Sub Pop catalog. This is what I’m trying to show you about: Red Red Meat’s Bunny Gets Paid, The Vaselines’ Enter The Vaselines, and the all deluxed-up Superfuzz Bigmuff. We’ve decided to carpe some diem and reissue a few more of our past favorites. Just yesterday, we released remastered versions Sunny Day Real Estate’s Diary and LP2 on colored vinyl (digital download code included) and CD, both of which feature bonus tracks. And, on September 22nd we’re putting out remastered versions of Mudhoney’s Superfuzz Bigmuff, Mudhoney, and Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, all on very colorful, very collectible colored vinyl (also with digital download codes). So carpe these records and we’ll carpe your money. Cool?
Welcome, September, you lovely month, you! September 15th is a big day here at HQ. On that day we’ll be releasing the new Grand Archives album Keep In Mind Frankenstein on CD/LP/MP3, and if you pre-order the album you can get this totally amazing Grand Archives bandana! Cool, right? Order here.
Also on the 15th is the re-release of Sunny Day Real Estate’sDiary and LP2 (aka the Pink Album) on CD/LP. Both of these albums are re-mastered and include bonus tracks, as well as newly written liner notes. Get these things here.
In continuing with our re-release fever, on September 22nd we’ll re-release three Mudhoney classics on LP. Some might call this a re-re-re-release of some of these songs, but hey, who’s counting? We’re redoing Superfuzz Bigmuff on grey/off-black vinyl, Mudhoney on magenta/purple-y vinyl, and Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge on salmon-y orange vinyl. All of these come with mp3 download codes, and some of these records haven’t been available on vinyl for ages/a couple of years. Get them all here.
The “little buddies” to our Skippers, aka Hardly Art, are releasing their eighth (!) record on the 22nd as well! Go check out the Hardly Art website and see about ordering Le Loup’s Family.
As always, please check out our handy dandy Tour Page to see if any Sub Pop artists are coming your way, and make sure to have a wonderful September.
Because we assumed that your Superfuzz Bigmuff shirt is getting pretty nasty from everyday abuse, we went ahead and made a new Mudhoney shirt for you! Yes, it’s that kind of market prediction that’s almost gotten us to where we’d hoped to be today. Designed by our own Jeff Kleinsmith, this t-shirt features artwork from The Lucky Ones, Mudhoney’s newest record.
This is the one and only Green River t-shirt (that we’re aware of, at least) and it has been reissued on high-quality, 180-gram, American Apparel cotton (the gram thing isn’t true, but it helps an otherwise needy metaphor). The front of the shirt features the band and the back boasts a six-pack paired with the term, “Ride the Fucking Six-Pack”. So if you’re wearing it to school, you may need to turn it inside-out when you get off the bus.
