Mudhoney @ Lamefest
3rd December 1989, The Astoria Theatre, London The headline act from the now legendary SubPop Seattle showcase, Lamefest UK, Mudhoney were THE band to watch at this particular juncture. The opening act, a little known three piece called Nirvana or something, were a fine start to the evening and Tad, the middle of the three bands steamrollered the UK audience in preparation for Mark, Steve, Mat and Dan's sonic assault. Mark Arm is still to this day one of the most energetic live performers you could wish to see as evidenced in my pictures from this gig. A selection of images of all three bands is prominently featured in Bruce Pavitt's excellent book about the time, 'Experiencing Nirvana'.
