    "Not quite a happy ending, but an apt one for a book that's as much about the spirit of punk rock as it is about the roar it makes. A must-read for anyone who wore plaid in the '90s", Q magazine. Niall Doherty

    How one band survived the Seattle rock revolution... "They would show up at the clubs" says Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, "spilling out of their van, wrestling with each other." At the peak of the scene, no other band seemed to have half as much fun', MOJO, David Frike

    "Keith Cameron is a music journalist who came of age during those days and interviewed Mudhoney many times while writing for Sounds and NME. This passionate, humorous and hugely informative book goes a long way to redressing the balance in Mudhoney's favour, and what might merely seem like a super fan writing about a band he loves. Cameron's argument is given extra heft by interviews with Nirvana's Krist Novoselic, Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament and Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, not to mention new and fascinating quotes from Mudhoney themselves. This book is not just one for fans of the scene, as with all the best biographies, it's a universal, human tale; a warmly written book about watching your friends become more successful than you, and struggling to find a way to live with it." Andy Welch, The Northern Echo
