Grunge didn’t start with Nevermind in 1991. But ten years earlier. Sub Pop, the flagship independent label of the grunge scene, remind us of this with the reissue of Dry As A Bone and Rehab Girl from Green River, the ancestor of Mudhoney and Pearl Jam. Born in Seattle in 1984 and formed around Mark Arm (Mudhoney), Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam), Bruce Fairweather (Mother Love Bone, Love Battery) and Alex Vincent, the group produced uplifting mixes of punk, psychedelic rock and blues by using obvious distortion effects. This was all to the liking of the urgency and the grime of the North-West of America. Assorted with previously unreleased material and remixes by Jack Endino who, thirty years earlier, produced it all at Seattle’s Reciprocal Recording Studios, this reissue gives us a whiff of what Sub Pop’s Bruce Pavitt described at the time as “ultra-loose grunge that destroyed the morals of a generation”. This is what would be, according to the legend, the origin of the term “grunge”.  – Charlotte Saintoin
