I remember listening to Mudhoney's self-titled album (on cassette), in Emporia, Kansas, in late '89, thanks to my friend Gary and his definitively progressive taste in music. Everyone else was listening to Guns N' Roses, Tone Loc and whatever Whitesnake / White Lion / Great White song was popular at the moment. Little did I know that nearly 20 years later, I'd be living in Seattle, Sub Pop would be going stronger than ever, and Mudhoney would still be touring.

Go figure.
