A Bit about the Mudhoney & SDRE Reissues

5940

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?

A Form of Paying Attention September 2009

5888

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’s Diary 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.

Green River T-shirts Are a Go

5301

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.

Pick it up here

Grab Dry as a Bone while you’re at it!

Brand New Mudhoney T-Shirt!

4495

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.

Pick one up right here.

Too Sober Right Now For Anything Too Interesting

I’ll write something better after I’ve had a few. Saw Mudhoney in Lancaster, PA last weekend. I wish I would have had a chance to talk with them, because I would have asked, “WHY THE HELL ARE YOU ALL THE HELL THE WAY OUT HERE?!” I had to make the trek back to Philly [big town in PA, look it up on a map, bigger then Lancaster even] through dark of night and construction lanes that reminded me of a driver’s ed nightmare. But I did it for Mudhoney. They hold the record for band-that-I’ve-seen-in-the-most-number-of-towns, and it is not because they tour too much. Anyway, Steve Turner was my hero during most of my twenties, and the only interaction I remember having with Sub Pop was when I sent a cassette copy of “Bleach” back for replacement around 1992. When I wrote to inquire about my replacement, someone sent a rather sharp note back saying that Sub Pop wasn’t in the habit of replacing cassettes that had been tossed around the floorboard of someone’s car. I don’t know how that person knew, but I didn’t put it there, it was this undesirable female who ripped out the tape and threw it there in an unprovoked rage. In closing I will also mention our dog, named Mudhoney. She is a four-legged dog, but she walks with a gimp. No joke there, just plain fact in mention.
