SP20 Festival - Details


As you have hopefully already read elsewhere here on the Sub Pop Interweb Tendency, we’re 20 this year. And, we plan to make kind of a nuisance of ourselves about it. More so than usual, even.

To celebrate the label’s twentieth birthday, Sub Pop will release a series of re-issues starting with Mudhoney’s Superfuzz Bigmuff: Deluxe Edition (which, like their brand new album The Lucky Ones , comes out May 20, 2008), launch a limited run of the Sub Pop Singles Club (more on that soon-ish), and throw a series of over-the-top birthday parties for itself this summer.

Herewith the scoop on these birthday parties:

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.

Touch Us, We’re Sick


Cuz Mark is gone on tour for a whole month! Here’s what a few Sub Pop employees miss the most about Mark when he’s gone:

  • Sam: his backrubs
  • Sasha: psych band recommendations
  • Sue: Mark always says good morning and seems like he means it. I think that’s nice.
  • Dusty: impromptu a cappella performances of Into The Drink
  • Sarah: NPR in the warehouse
  • Chris: NPR
  • Andy: his pretty hairdo?
  • Lacey: skronk
  • Megan: I miss listening to NPR. He blasts it in the warehouse like it’s Black Flag’s “TV Party”.
  • Tony: The blowjobs in the men’s room. Definitely the blowjobs.

Celebrate Mudhoney Day Tonight at Easy Street Records!


Although the national press coverage for this holiday has been a little light, you visitors here at the Sub Pop Interweb Concern are already well aware that today, May 20th, 2008, is MUDHONEY DAY! We declared it so a little while back.

And, in celebration of MUDHONEY DAY, we are hereby inviting you to come out to Easy Street Records in Seattle’s Lower Queen Anne neighborhood for a FREE IN-STORE PERFORMANCE TONIGHT AT 7PM! Even better: this free in-store performance at 7pm will be performed by the actual Mudhoney!

What’s more, if you are unable to attend this evening’s FREE Mudhoney in-store performance because you live in some other city, or have plans or family members you cannot neglect, or have been committed of and incarcerated for a crime you did/did not commit, or have discovered far too late that those pot cookies are way, WAY stronger than you anticipated, you can watch this FREE Mudhoney in-store performance on your computer! The fine people at Easy Street have set up a live webcast of this evening’s FREE Mudhoney in-store performance which you can access here at 7pm PST.

We are, of course, also celebrating MUDHONEY DAY with the release of two record albums by the actual Mudhoney:

Their brand-new album The Lucky Ones
And, the totally deluxed-up 2-disc reissue of Superfuzz Bigmuff

Happy Mudhoney Day, everyone! See you at Easy Street at 7pm!

Mudhoney Day is May 20th - Mark Your Calendars!


May 20th, 2008 is officially Mudhoney Day on the wall calendar in the Sub Pop International Global World Headquarters of America office. I know you’re scratching your head thinking, “How can I, Mudhoney fanatic that I am, celebrate Mudhoney Day?” Well I’ll tell you, presumably inquisitive reader! You pick up TWO new Mudhoney records (and maybe a t-shirt and a poster if you like)! We’re actually quite pleased with ourselves for unleashing The Lucky Ones (CD/LP), a brand new Mudhoney album, as well as a very deluxe, very special double-disc Superfuzz Bigmuff (CD) all on the same day. And due to our penchant for pandering to potential record-buyers, if you pre-order The Lucky Ones by May 20th, we’ll toss in a bonus 7” single. A new bonus 7” single by Mudhoney. And, we’ll toss in Mudhoney-related stickers and a button. So please, help us celebrate Mudhoney Day by turning your money into our money.

Pick up Lucky Ones here

Pick up the deluxed-up Superfuzz Bigmuff here
