Sub Pop Rock, Comedy, and Acoustic Guitar City


It goes without saying that a lamestain representative will be attending the most awesome event in the history of mankind (i.e., the Green River reunion). Look for Tom out there: he'll be the guy with long hair, a flannel shirt, torn jeans, and a leather jacket, throwing beer cans at Iron & Wine.

As for me? Lucky me, I'll be stuck in Chicago, doing marketing and investments homework. In honor of the event, I will be extra angst-y as I calculate CAPM models.

Dan at 10 Things has photos of last night's surprise Green River show at the Sunset.

Tom wrote a Grunge 101 piece in The Seattle Weekly that's worth a read, although you already own all of these records, of course. The Weekly also has other features about the big bash.

Pitchfork has devoted the entire week to Sub Pop-related features, some of which are really quite good. I take issue with their list of 20 essential releases, however, because it doesn't include Salt Lick. How do you accidentally omit Salt Lick?

Have fun at this thing, and take lots of photos.

P.S. MediaMax, our old host for mp3s, went tits up a couple of weeks ago, so you'll find that you can't link to those mp3s anymore. We'll still use zip files and box.net and, I hope, not have that problem any more.

To the person above.
I have that SGM album your looking for, but I have it on cassette so it might not help much.

And Willard I have a CD by them, "Steel Mill" I think it's called. I haven't heard of Bonegrinder, but i'll do a search for it.

Back on topic. How was the show!?!
That Green River reunion must've been quite a sight to see.

hope you guys have been able to find at least one of the audience recordings of the sunset tavern gig...

meantime, would it be possible to re-up the u-men stuff? they were gone by the time i started getting into mudhoney et al (1993 or so, in rochester ny, as a young man w/o a clue), but i always liked that deep six track & their whole catalogue seems to be of a similar vintage.

Dear Mike,

Please post a link for that SGM - Agression album. I, too, second that as well.

It would be cool to get a repost of those Seaweed singles if at all possible.

Great site! Great info.
