Mudhoney - "If I Think" Live in Berlin 1988

Features

Mudhoney are releasing a DVD of their 1988 concert at Berlins Independent Days Festival. Live In Berlin, filmed by a professional camera crew, was Mudhoney's first ever performance on foreign soil, laying the essential groundwork for the 'grunge's' subsequent global domination. Here is an exclusive live track from the DVD.

Mudhoney: Live In Berlin, 1988 presents one of the greatest rock groups at their very best - a glorious mess of flailed hair, acidic caterwaul, gnarly riffage and fried guitar skronk as Mudhoney tear through material from their epochal (but then-unreleased) Superfuzz Bigmuff EP and eponymous debut album. The show's wild, thrilling, and funny-as-fuck, much like Mudhoney themselves. You'll wish you'd been there -- now, thanks to this Mudhoney: Live In Berlin, 1988, you almost can be.
 
With over 40 minutes of concert footage, the DVD also features an exclusive interview with Mudhoney front man Mark Arm, and liner notes written by renowned journalist Stevie Chick.
 
A testament to the enduring vitality of the independent music scene, the  DVD release celebrates the 27th anniversary of !K7, a Berlin-based independent label and distributor with offices in New York and London, and an internationally renowned purveyor of electronic music in particular. In its early days, !K7 also served as a video production company run by label-owner Horst Weidenmüller, whose crew filmed a number of performances from that year's Berlin Independent Days festival. Weidenmüller recently rediscovered the Mudhoney footage, realising that he held in his hands a crucial rock 'n' roll document that had to be shared with the world.
