SONG FOR EWE
with STEVE TURNER of MUDHONEY
“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day.
Our second guest is a guitar legend immortalized forever flailing arm in Mark Arm on the cover of iconic Seattle album “Superfuzz Bigmuff” –
STEVE TURNER of MUDHONEY
It’s fair to say I’m a massive Mudhoney fan, and am proud owner of all their albums ranging from the Stooges meets Yardbirds kick of “Touch Me I’m Sick” on “Superfuzz” through to the psychedelic monolithic riffs of “Under A Billion Suns” (soon to be reissued on vinyl by Sub Pop) and the sheer punk comic shtick of “Chardonnay” on the most recent album, 2013’s “Vanishing Point”. Currently on a UK tour, and in London on 30 May, I asked Steve for an obscure song that every good boy and girl deserves to hear…
Over to Steve…
“David Blue “House Of Changing Faces”, from his “Stories” LP. I’m on tour with Mudhoney at the moment, with Seattle folk and guitar master Barton Carroll opening. We’re talking about a lot of obscure singer songwriter types. He hadn’t heard of him, so I played him one of my fave David Blue tracks.
Same goes for Fairport Convention’s “Sloth”!
THANKS TO STEVE TURNER. MUDHONEY TOUR THE UK NOW.
