Mudhoney is an American grunge band which formed in Seattle, Washington in 1988 and currently consists of Mark Arm, Steve Turner, Dan Peters and Guy Maddison.
Both Mark Arm and Steve Turner had been involved in numerous other projects before pursuing Mudhoney seriously as a band. By 1988 the classic line up was in place and they released their first EP titled 'Superfuzz Bigmuff' on Sub Pop Records. This EP has been cited as one of Nirvana's biggest early influences. The release of this and an early single 'Touch Me I'm Sick' gained the new band much needed attention and their sound became a success Stateside. Sonic Youth invited them to play as support on their upcoming UK tour which gave the band an international platform.
Over the band's career they have released ten albums, their first was released in 1989 and although this didn't achieve the band any commercial success, it gained critical attention and their fan base grew from there. The second album entitled 'Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge' charted at #34 in the UK charts, meaning Mudhoney began to gain notoriety on both sides of the Atlantic. 'Piece of Cake' remains their highest charting US release, debuting at #9 on the US Heatseekers chart.
Matt Lukin departed from the band in 2000 and was replaced by Guy Maddison who has been a constant member since. The band continued to tour and release material under the name Mudhoney, shortly after Lukin leaving the band returned to Sub Pop records and have released all their albums with them since.
