THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Having emerged in 1989 and become a mainstay of the American alternative scene, Mudhoney moved from Sub Pop to Reprise Records and produced three outstanding albums during the 1990s. While not achieving the household-name status enjoyed by a handful of their contemporaries, the band maintained a strong following, and the admiration of their peers throughout a decade that saw the grunge explosion take American alternative music into the mainstream.

Essential for fans, Real Low Vibe shines a long-overdue light on this period of the band’s career, both in the studio and on stage. Compiled in conjunction with Mudhoney, the four-CD set showcases their major-label period from 1992-1998. It includes three studio albums — Piece of Cake, My Brother The Cow and Tomorrow Hit Today — along with the singles Generation Spokesmodel, Suck You Dry, Blinding Sun, Five Dollar Bob’s Mock Cooter Stew and Into Your Shtik. On top of that there are more than 30 rarities — B-sides and live recordings, outtakes and sampler-only tracks, plus the promotional only On Tour Now live album. The liner notes include new interview material with Mark Arm.”
