S3E13 Dry As a Bone

We’re back, and this week we’re heading back to the mid 80’s to check out some proto-grunge.

This week’s album is Dry as a Bone, the second EP by  Green River. It was released in July 1987 through Sub Pop Records.

Green River formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1984. Although the band had very little commercial Success outside their native Seattle, Green River were pioneers of the grunge music genre. The grunge style was featured both in Green River’s own music and the music its members would create in future bands, including MudhoneyMother Love BoneTemple of the Dog and Pearl Jam.

Steve Huey of Allmusic has called Dry As a Bone Green River‘s “strongest individual release…perfecting their sleazy, raucous fusion of ’70s hard rock and post-hardcore.
