Phases & Stages


Superfuzz Bigmuff: Deluxe Edition (Sub Pop)

Mudhoney's singular March to Fuzz (2000) continues at a Civil War scale by encasing the Seattle quartet's six-track EP/vacuum-cleaner explosion of 20 years ago with amp-crushing era peerage, including the group's definitive cover of the Dicks' "Hate the Police" and 1990 Sonic Youth split-single scare "Halloween." Seventy excoriating minutes live in Berlin and Santa Barbara, Calif., also from '88, will collapse your Eustachian tubes.
