Mystery Girl are proud to announce that MUDHONEY will perform a special one-off Auckland show while in New Zealand for the Big Day Out!!!
 
The Seattle band will play Auckland’s Kings Arms Tavern on Thursday 16 January in a night-before-Big Day Out side-show, which has become a spin-off tradition of the BDO tour.
 
In the two decades since their last visit to these shores, Mudhoney have defied the ever-evolving nature of music trends with their garage-rock, punk-infused, psycho-blues style.
 
The band has continued to tour and release albums every few years since their inception in 1988, that began with their first Indie hit single Touch Me I’m Sick, which helped secure them initial success in the UK and Europe before their appeal caught on at home.
 
The last 12 months has been a hive of activity for Mudhoney celebrating their 25th anniversary; the release of their ninth studio album Vanishing Point, the documentary I'm Now, which has screened at numerous film festivals and a life-and-times account of the band published in the book The Sound And The Fury From Seattle.
 
The anniversary also coincides with the 25th anniversary of their label, the now legendary Sub Pop Records. Mudhoney were the first real success story for Sub Pop; their early indie-scene success laid the groundwork for the movement that would put Seattle on the map. A pioneering and enduring mainstay of the Seattle sound, which came to be known as ‘Grunge’, Mudhoney helped changed the face of punk-inspired alternative guitar music forever, bringing it in from the cold, and making it more accessible to a whole new generation.
 
Although Mudhoney never scored the big payday of some of their label mates (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden), their importance on the Seattle scene cannot be underestimated. Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain regarded their debut EP Superfuzz Bigmuff as some of the music, which most influenced Nirvana's sound.
