The Freewheelin' Mark Arm - Masters Of War 7"
Happy New Year everybody. It's going to be a fucking weird one.
Another curiosity out of the box of 7"s, this time Mudhoney's Mark Arm covers Bob Dylan, on Sub Pop from 1990. It's actually really good, with a lot of venom, as befits the song. Produced by Jack Endino, so it wasn't just a throwaway home-recorded kind of thing.
Side 2 is a lot sillier as lyrics go, variously clean-ish and very distorted guitar with a shaker which kind of wanders around the rhythm. It's worth a listen, if possibly only one.
1. Masters Of War
2. My Life With Rickets
Mark it Bob, Dude.
