Mudhoney: Celebrating 25 Years Live on WFMU

Mudhoney in the WFMU parking lot

When WFMU broadcast Mudhoney live from ATP a few years ago, it was fully obvious that their instrumental power and Mark Arm's inimitable yowl were still very much in full force. Even more so at last year's Primavera broadcast (where they followed up after their set by bumrushing and taking over the WFMU fairway tent!). Twenty-five years down the line Mudhoney still have the bottles and bodies flying, soaking up a past and continuing to deliver the one-two riffage even as bands they influenced have vanished and reunited at half mast.

In celebration of both Sub Pop and Mudhoney's respective 25th anniversaries, they stop by WFMU's Brian Turner's show to rock faces off with a few live songs from their brand new full-length (their ninth!) "Vanishing Point."

Primavera Sound 2012 MP3 Collection, Pt. 1

WFMU returned to Barcelona in early June for yet another fantastic festival from the folks at Primavera Sound. As always, the line-up is curated with a freeform mentality, bringing a diverse array of artists spanning multiple genres and generations. We've had a few weeks now to recoup from our sleepless broadcast coverage of the festival [playlists here and here] and we're excited to present our first batch of downloadable artist-approved live recordings! 
 
Part 1 begins with:
 
 
Brooklyn's Obits are no strangers to the Free Music Archive, and they've taken the time to remaster this recording of their Primavera performance just for the FMA. It sounds great! Seattle's Mudhoney inspired heaps of Grunge rockers with their early singles on Sub Pop in the late eighties. Now they're back and still kicking ass - don't miss their set, a fan favorite! Despite multiple attempts from Michael Gira (pictured above) over the years to slip obsenities into our Primavera broadcast, our FCC dump button still got the better of him. For our troubles, he let us share a song from his excellent solo performance in Barcelona. Olympia's Milk Music visited the WFMU studios on Brian Turner's show last Summer (session here). This Summer we caught up with them in sunny Spain for some afternoon tunage on the Mediterranean (pictured at Left). Liturgy's brand of "transcendental black metal" gave way to the hypnotically buiding "Generation" and finally, The Men, who headlined our show at SXSW, offer another sampling of their post-punk stylings with a few new songs sprinkled in. 
 
Take a look at the Primavera Sound 2012 Collection for all of the livesets uploaded to date, and be sure to check back in the next couple weeks as we continue to upload more and more great sets from this year's festival. Below you'll find some highlights from our first batch...
