Penny Ikinger and her band have been invited by Mudhoney to play support for this show at The Corner Hotel.
Seminal Seattle four-piece Mudhoney return to Australia in 2023, marking nine years since their last local shows in 2014. A mammoth odyssey spanning April and May will see them playing headline shows across six states, with a handful of festival dates among them.
Mudhoney have an enviable career spanning over three decades, thirteen studio albums, five live records, and endless headline shows around the globe. Their provocative debut single ‘Touch Me I’m Sick’ and 1992 hit ‘Suck You Dry’ cemented them as pioneers of the late 80’s early 90’s grunge explosion, with their sound an instrumental foundation of the era.
The band have managed to find time to lay down tracks in the studio this year for their next opus due in 2023, which follows their 2019 EP “Morning in America” (“this is wilder, punkier and even funnier than last time around” – Clash), giving Australian fans the opportunity to hear all of the new and a bunch of the former favourites live.
Year after year, Mudhoney delivers contrarian, politically charged, anti-sentimental musings with their signature skuzz-rock rebellious, underground sound to wake you up, punch you in the gut and put a smile on your face with equal measure.
“Mudhoney traits – a limber, swinging rhythm section that rolls as hard as it rocks, Arm and Steve Turner’s intertwining guitars and Arm’s witty and well-observed lyrics, delivered with appropriate venom in an Iggy-esque sardonic croon.” Louder Than War
“The likes of Here Comes Sickness and Sweet Young Thing Ain’t Sweet No More crackle with the nihilistic primal menace that once proved too much for daytime radio. ” The Guardian
