MUDHONEY Released Second Album ‘EVERY GOOD BOY DESERVES FUDGE’ 30 Years Ago Today

26 July 2021

Band: MUDHONEY (Seattle, WA)
Active: Since 1988 / 10 studio albums (so far)

Released: 26 July 1991 – 30 years ago today

Steve Turner (guitarist): “My favorite Mudhoney album as a whole.”

AllMusic/Ned Raggett : “Whether it was Conrad Uno’s production, the addition
of more instruments to the Mudhoney arsenal (notably, Mark Arm adds organ, as
can be enjoyably heard on “Who You Drivin’ Now,” among other numbers), a slew
of brilliant songs, or a combination of the above, Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge
found Mudhoney coming into their own album-wise… It’s not so much grunge as
speed-freak energy, and all the better for it given the caricatures of Sub Pop’s sound
that would soon take over the airwaves… The six-minute “Broken Hands” is the one
point on the album where the band completely freaks out, but unlike the takes-too-long moments of Mudhoney, it’s all worth it here, down to the final chaotic amplifier abuse.”

Full review here . Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: It’s crystal clear here why Kurt Cobain was mad about
these grunge crusaders, still alive and kicking hard, loud and speedy today.

Single: Good Enough…
