Mudhoney Tourbook, 1991
Tourbook

3/8/91 The Commodore Ballroom. Vancouver, Canada (5 min)
Also on Bill: Screaming Trees, Nirvana, Doughboys, Wong 5
Set: In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: At the end of the Screaming Trees' set, which featured Dan on drums, Mark Lannegan left the stage, so Van Conner brought out some guests by saying, "Hey folks, this is Matt and Steve. They're in a band called Mudhoney." After playing In 'N" Out of Grace, they all ended up in a pile on the stage.

6/30/91 "Parkpop". Zuiderpark. The Hague, The Netherlands (CANCELLED)
Notes: Mudhoney is originally booked for this free festival (because the festival wanted to have a "Seattle" band), but ends up not playing.

7/7/91 The Mural Amphitheater. Seattle, WA (45 min)
Supporting: Aldo Nova
Set: Fuzzgun '91, Here Comes Sickness, This Gift, Into The Drink, Who You Drivin Now, You Got It, Touch Me I'm Sick, Good Enough, Move Out, Let It Slide, Running Loaded, If I Think, In 'N' Out Of Grace
Notes: Fuzzgun '91, Into the Drink, Who You Drivin' Now?, Move Out and Let it Slide are performed for the first known time. The pairing of Mudhoney and hair-metal Aldo Nova is unusual, which is borne out when a large portion of the crowd leaves after Mudhoney's set.

7/15/91 The Backstage Tavern. Seattle, WA (70 min)
Set: Fuzzgun '91, Get into Yours, Who You Drivin' Now?, You Got it, This Gift, If I Think, Something So Clear, Let it Slide, Sweet Young Thing, Good Enough, Don't Fade IV, Flat Out Fucked, Check-Out Time, Dead Love
Encore: Into The Drink, Over the top, In 'N' Out of Grace
Notes: Check-Out Time and Over the Top are performed for the first known time. Get into Yours falls apart during the first verse and is restarted. There's a lengthy break after the song as Steve's equipment problems are attended to. They start up Wou You Drivin' Now, only to again stop during the first verse and restart the song. During the breakdown in In 'N' Out of Grace, Mark explains to the audience that there's two types of people in this world: those that are at the show, and those that aren't. After going into detail about the differences between the two he adds, "Tonight after the show, if you see anyone who wasn't here, I want you to beat the fucking shit out of them. Let's play some jazz," and they go into a faux-jazz mode. The ending of the song is drawn out, with the "jazz" theme repeated.

7/26/91 The Big Dipper. Spokane, WA
Notes: This was more of a "show" than a show, since it lasted all of two songs. The venue was licensed for 118 people and had more than 200 inside. Given the choice between evicting half the crowd and canceling the show, the bar owner picked the latter. Owner Steve Spickard: "It was just a huge success. It was like canceling a Beatles concert. Well, maybe not that bad." The Big Dipper was located at S. 171 Washington.

7/27/91 Kennewick VFW. Kennewick, WA
Attendance: 400
Supporting: D.N.C.
Supported By: Seaweed, Small, 2 Weeks
Set: This Gift, Sweet Young Thing
Encore: Touch Me I'm Sick (encore possibly incomplete)
Notes: While the official capacity of the venue is 74, approximately 400 people are squeezed in to see the performance, with more standing out in the street. Mudhoney was billed as the headliner, but an arrangement was made where D.N.C. would close the show. D.N.C. gets 10 minutes into their set and the cops shut it down.

Encore: Fix Me, Stab Your Back, Over the Top, Hate the Police
Notes: They pause 'Fuzzgun '91' for a bit, sort out some technical matters, and then Steve leads them in to resume at the spot where they stopped. Mark introduces 'Touch Me I'm Sick,' with "It may be 1991, but I'm gonna party like it's 1999." Then he switches up the words to the second verse and the last chorus (instead of just the third verse, like usual). He's got his mic set up high like Lemmy Kilmeister (who's band Motorhead wrote 'Over the Top,' which Mudhoney covers in the encore). Then, for 'Good Enough,' he announces "I need to lower the mic for this one," and he sets it comically low. It's just for the one song - "I can go back up for this one" - and it's back to a Lemmy-style mic for the remainder of the show. Mark is tuning his guitar before 'This Gift,' so Matt starts rambling into the mic, culminating in, "Did you know Kurt Cobain is a woman?" They come out to do a bunch of punk rock covers for the encore, so Mark (speaking German) and Steve (speaking English) give a "One! Two! Three! Four!" Punk-rock count-in ... and then Dan doesn't start the song. Mark and Matt have some writing in sharpie on their arms, with Matt added the straight-edge "sXe" on the back of his hand. Mark closes with, "How'd you like that theme music we played? We were gonna play some Wagner, but that didn't work."

Notes: Mudride is an exceptionally jammy version where Dan and Matt switch instruments to start the song. Later in the song, Mark begins playing bass. That is followed by an a cappella jam by Mark, and then they jam with Dan on bass, Mark on drums, Steve on guitar and Matt handling the vocals.

Encore: You Stupid Asshole, Fix Me, Hate the Police
Notes: Shoot the Moon is performed for the first known time. Mark introduces most of the songs with Rush song titles. Who You Drivin' Now? becomes Lakeside Park, You Got it is Bastille Day, etc. Before If I Think, there's a small break while Steve tunes his guitar and Matt announces, "Look at me! I'm a French cunt!" The crowd boos and he tries to get back on their good side by saying, "Hey, I like beer." Mark starts introducing Shoot the Moon, speaking quickly: "This here song is about driving fast late at night drunk with the top down and long ass hair and its called - " and Matt cuts him off and says "It's about pussy." Before Touch Me I'm Sick Matt plays the part of crowd favorite again by criticizing Canadian beer. After the audience boos and curses at him, he dismisses them with, "When you're a rich American traveling around the world..." It's at this point that Mark tells the crowd that they're using Rush song titles as a tribute. After the song is over he says, "When you come to Seattle, you can name Soundgarden songs. It's the same thing."

Encore 2: The Money Will Roll Right In, Hate the Police
Notes: The ending to Touch Me I'm Sick is long and drawn out. Mark prefaces Who You Drivin' Now? with, "This is a song that was originally in the Gas Huffer repotoire, but we stole it from them and we banished them from playing it for the rest of the tour. It's called..." and he's cut off by Dan starting the song. The middle section of Dead Love is relatively energetic. During the intro to You Got It Mark shouts, "Do the piston!" When the song ends he follows up on that with, "It's a sad state of affairs, ladies and gentlemen, when you're own band can't even do the piston when a video camera crew is here to film them." Matt replies, "You can't what? You can't piss?"

Encore: The Money will Roll..., Fix Me, Hate the Police
Notes: They might've played a few more songs after 'Touch Me I'm Sick.' They come on stage to DEVO's 'Corporate Anthem' (which they did for a while), and Mark stands holding a salute position, in the DEVO style. Then Dan counts in, and away they go. Steve tries to count in to 'Who You Drivin' Now?' - another song that Dan starts off - but Dan isn't having any of it. Steve: "One two three four! [No Dan] ... Five six seven eight! [No Dan] ... Who do we appreciate?! [No Dan, with Mark adding, "Florida!"]. Dan starts the song when he's good and ready. After they finish the third song ('Running Loaded') the crowd keeps moshing, and Steve yells at them, "There's no music going right now! Stop!" Then Matt starts shouting for band-manager Bob Whittaker, and Mark joins in. Later, Mark pulls out one of his cheaper applause lines: "I got an upside down cross tattooed on my butt. I feel right at home here. This next little number's for all of you in the back. Let's see some lighters! Two! Three! Hey, man, I hope you use those lighters to smoke some marijuana!" and the crowd goes WILD at the mention of drugs. After 'Into the Drink,' Dan needs to attend to his drums. So, Mark and Steve create a noise jam by rubbing their guitars together, and then Mark announces, "We got a little number that goes a little something like this," and starts up the refrain to KISS's 'God Gave Rock and Roll to You.' Eventually the other guys join in singing, and Dan plays a beat. Mark changes the line in 'Let it Slide' to, "They make it sound so nice, every FRAT BOY has a price." As soon as he finishes the second chorus to 'Hate the Police,' Mark does a stage dive while the band jams it out. He makes it back for the end of the song. Steve leaves by Dan's kit and knocks a bit of it over while he passes. So Dan takes Steves's guitar, pushes the rest of his kit over, and waves the guitar around. And that's the show.

Notes: Dave Markey (1991: The Year Punk Broke) shot footage the show that he used in the music videos for 'Who You Drivin' Now?' and 'Fuzzgun '91.' Dez Cadena of Black Flag assisted Dave Markey on the shoot. Then he came out and played Black Flag covers with Mudhoney - 'Fix Me,' and one other, which was probably 'Nervous Breakdown.' Duff McKagan of Guns N' Roses joins in in some capacity. Mark and Duff went on to play a set of Stooges covers in 2015, billed as Raw Power.

Mark and Matt in Flipside (Oct/Nov 1992):

Mark: I said Steve, Duff wants to play. Steve said "OK, get it up there." And he asked Matt what key it was in.
Matt: I said, "What's a key?"

Encore 2: Need, Get into Yours
Notes: They hit the stage and Mark says into the mic in an Australian accent, "Waiter can you give me a beer? Waiter we'd like some more beer." During the break in In 'N' Out of Grace, Mark welcomes the crowd: "Good evening ladies and gentlemen. We'd like to welcome you to an evening of food, drink and fun at Slim's Bar and Grill. We'll be you're entertainment for tonight. We are from Seattle, Washington by way of Santa Barbara, California [Santa Barbara being right next to Isla Vista, where they played a show the previous night]. In the Pacific Northwest we're known as Mudhoney. Thank you." The last line of You Got it is changed to "eat my butt." After Into the Drink, people from the crowd start yelling for songs. Mark cuts the off with, "Hey hey hey, we're getting way too many than we can even play tonight in our short set. We'd like to thank you for your concern and your interest, but hey, we gotta stick to the planned material." Matt adds, "We got beer to drink." Mark continues: "This is a little number from Janes Addition that we'd like to do for you." Matt: "It's called I'm a pouf and I wear lipstick." Mark: "We hope it warms the cockles of your heart." Touch Me I'm Sick is introduced by Mark with, "We're going to take you back to the innocense of 1988 with this number." They hit the stage for the first encore and Matt starts soliciting the crowd: "Welcome to Mudhoney's second set...If anybody happens to have any spare quarters and wants to lob them up, feel free. Don't throw hard! Just lob them up, like into my back pocket because I've got calls to make...There we go, make that one call. I think that's the only one I can make. Dimes won't do it." After a second, Mark adds, "We changed our mind. This coin shit hurts to much so we're doing paper money. Make little paper airplanes and throw them onstage." At this point, Steve comments, "You know ZZ Top, their guitar player uses some kind of coin for a pick." Matt: "No, he uses a peso to get that southern..." Steve: That's a coin though, isn't it? I said some kind of coin." Matt: "OK, I'll use a phone card to make the call then." Someone from the crowd then shouts something about Los Angeles. Mark: "L.A.? What the fuck is this?" Steve: "We hate L.A.!" Cheers go up from the crowd. Mark: "Hey wait a minute, that doesn't necessarily mean we love you or anything." Matt: "It's a lot like Paris, it's definately not a rock town." Steve: "After tonight we're going down there and kicking L.A.'s ass, huh?" and there's more applause. Mark: "You and me in a big old bus. Come on baby, let's do it!" At this point they get around to playing another song. After The Money Will Roll..., Mark mentions that the song was written by Tom Flynn, and Matt picks up from there: "...owner of Penis [Boner] Records, home of the Melvins, who by the way, are a bunch of poufs. Well they moved to San Francisco, didn't they?...I got kicked out of the Melvins and started a real band." Mark and Steve then thank him for this. When they come out for the second encore, it's time for more talk. Matt spots someone in the crowd: "Hey look at that guy, he looks just like Steve! With the glasses on." Steve: "That's one cool looking guy." Matt: "Is anyone following me? (shouts of "no" from the crowd") Am I talking to fast for you people? Here's a song I wrote about sex," and they start up Need. As they leave the stage for good, Matt gets in a final comment: "Thank you very much, I'm going to go take my shirt off."

10/15/91 Shinjuku Antiknock. Tokyo, Japan (65 min)
Attendance: 400

Set: In 'N' Out of Grace, Who You Drivin' Now?, You Got it, Into the Drink, If I Think, Here Comes Sickness, Pokin' Around, Sweet Young Thing, Something So Clear, Let it Slide, Flat out Fucked, Touch Me I'm Sick, Check-out Time, Dead Love
Encore: You Make Me Die (w/Billy Childish), This Gift, Louie Louie (w/?)
Notes: This is the only known time they've played 'Louie Louie' (they jammed on it briefly on 4/25/89 and Steve played it with an ensamble crew at the end of 6/13/97). Steve starts the show playing with a really clean guitar tone (for him), which makes the songs sound more garage rock than normal. The crowd goes crazy during 'Touch Me I'm Sick,' proving that a hit song transcends cultures and languages. When they come out for the encore, Billy Childish joins them, and he sings 'You Make Me Die' while Mark plays guitar. Then they close with another guest, who is probably either Bruce Brand or Johnny Johnson of Thee Headcoats. Someone asks, "What should we play?" and Mark shouts, "'Louie Louie!' What else does he know!?" So they play that Kingsmen song, with mystery guest on guitar and vocals, Mark on drums, and Dan MIA. Afterward, Lukin: "OK, let's go find the fat drummer." Steve: "Yeah, the fat guy who stormed out. Where is he?"

Set: (Twenty Four), Twenty Four, In 'N' Out of Grace, Who You Drivin' Now?, You Got it, Into the Drink, If I Think, When Tomorrow Hits, Here Comes Sickness, (I've Got Drugs), Good Enough, Sweet Young Thing, Let it Slide, (Smoke on the Water), Something So Clear, (Smoke on the Water), (Touch Me I'm Sick), Touch Me I'm Sick, Dead Love
Encore: (Living After Midnight), Magnolia Caboose..., This Gift, The Money will Roll..., Fix Me, Stab Your Back, Hate the Police/(Sunshine on My Shoulders)/(Ramblin' Man)
Notes: This show is full of little jams on covers - The Frogs' 'I've Got Drugs (Outta the Mist),' Deep Purple's 'Smoke on the Water' (twice!), Judas Priest's 'Living After Midnight,' John Denver's 'Sunshine on my Shoulders,' and The Allman Brothers Band's 'Ramblin' Man.' Before they hit the stage, manager Bob Whittaker is taking photos of the crowd, and Steve does the same with his camera when the band hits the stage. They open the show with 'Twenty Four,' realize they're not ready, sort things out, and then start over again. During the breakdown of 'In 'N' Out of Grace,' Mark gets in on the photo game with his own camera. During the breakdown in 'Here Comes Sickness,' Mark sings along with Steve bending the strings, "whoo, whooooooo!" Then, after that song, they do a little of 'I've Got Drugs.' Mark starts singing, "I've got drugs that'll blow your mind tonight / Blow your mind tonight / I've got drugs / Out of the mist I kissed your drug-filled lips." Steve joins in by harmonizing, and then does the response part of a call-and-response with Mark. Dan taps out a beat, and then Lukin shouts "Pussy!" at the end. Bob comes out to attend to something on stage during the latter part of 'Let it Slide' and then puts Mark on his shoulders for the remainder of the song. They do a short instrumental version of 'Smoke on the Water,' at first and then the second go at the song is more fleshed out. Mark sings some of the first verse into the chorus and some of the second verse, while the guys play the main riff at half speed regardless of whether it's the verse or the chorus. Mark tried to introduce 'Touch Me I'm Sick' before the jam with, "This little song is the first one we ever wrote, and the best one we'll ever write for the rest of our lives. Thank you very much." And then it's fun chaos. Everyone is on the stage in an instant, and Mark has trouble signing and playing guitar. He's getting hugged. Eventually he just does a handstand and the other guys stop the song. They start it up again, and everyone is back on stage in an instant, but Bob is doing his job this time, handling people and keeping Mark's mic set up. Mark doesn't bother playing much guitar at first, but joins in as things get sorted out. Steve takes his solo behind his head, and Steve and Mark share a mic for the final chorus like they're Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (back when those two liked each other). Mark's improvised lyric during 'Dead Love' is along the lines of "Never know what you're missing / Until it's gone / And sometime it don't matter anyway / Never thought I could be so wrong." It's the encore and Bob is out for more photos. The guys return shitless and sweaty, with Mark commenting, "I've never played topless before in my life." He starts into a little bit of 'Living After Midnight,' on guitar and Dan joins in. He stops and restarts, and this time Steve joins in. They play the two songs they presumably have sorted out for the encore, then Mark calls an audible to sort out the rest: "Uh, Money, Fix, Stab, Hate?" They end 'Hate the Police' with a slow major-key jam, over which Mark sings some of 'Sunshine on My Shoulders' and 'Ramblin' Man:' "Sunshine on my shoulder makes me happy / sunshine almost always makes me cry / Lord I was born a ramblin' man / Living it, loving it, doing it the best I can / but when it comes to leaving I hope you understand." Steve joins in on Mark's mic for some more Jagger/Richards action for that last line.

Encore: This Gift, Mudride, In 'N' Out of Grace
Encore 2: You Stupid Asshole, Hate the Police
Notes: Thirteenth Floor Opening is performed for the first known time. Matt and Mark seem to be really into the show throughout. When they come out, Matt says, "I want to thank Randy for all the porno videos in the back room. I love porno. I love it," and Mark thanks Monster Magnet for playing. Before Who You Drivin' Now, Dan starts playing Into the Drink, and stops when everyone else is supposed to come in, but doesn't. After Good Enough, Mark announces, "we'd like to play a number for you that hasn't been recorded for and it goes a little something like this" and they play No One Has, but Mark sings gibberish for half of the song. After Let it Slide Mark writes and sings a 10 second death metal song. During Touch Me I'm Sick, instead of singing the first refrain, Mark sings a bit of Smells Like Teen Spirit, and then later substitutes "'cause I'm 30 years old" instead of "touch me I'm sick." When they come out for the first encore, Matt steps up to Mark's microphone and says, "damn, I have a bad case of heartburn right now. I think it might even be a heart attack. Is there..." at which point he stops because Steve is trying to whisper something to him. After that, he continues, "No, I didn't eat a hotdog today. Is there a hospital nearby where someone could rush me to?" Mark then introduces This Gift with, "how many of you are sick of the '90s? Are you looking back to those wonderful '80s? Well, we're going to take you there." During the Mudride solo, Mark keeps his back to the audience, and then vomits on-stage. When he turns around, Matt offers him some beer, but he's laughing so hard that he doesn't notice. Later, during the In 'N' Out of Grace solo, Mark has some more beer, and tells the crowd, "I'm fine now. As a matter of fact, I could use another drink." When they come out for the second encore, Steve says, "we were going to do a really rocking song but our singer is sick, so I guess we'll do a another song," and Mark responds, "I've never felt better in my life." Matt, apparently still suffering from heartburn says, "I wish I could do that, Mark. Does anyone have any Rolaids? Randy, do you have any Rolaids? I'll drink a beer; that'll cool it down." While he's talking, Mark is wiping vomit off of his distortion box. Then Matt says, "I think I'll strap my bass below my knees, like Nirvana. And I'll grow a beard." Mark does interpretive dances during You Stupid Asshole and then lets some people in the crowd sing part of Hate the Police.

Encore: (Smells Like Teen Spirit), This Gift, In 'N' Out of Grace, Dehumanized
Notes: Dehumanized is performed for the first known time. As they hit the stage, someone is screaming for Smells Like Teen Spirit, so Dan and Steve each play a little of it. Mark opens with, "we'll be playing nothing but Young Fresh Fellows covers tonight. 1, 2, 3, 4, rock 'n' roll pest control!" Matt talks for an extended period of time with the crowd, then cuts himself short with, "hey, you don't want to hear me talk" right before Good Enough. Half-way through the set while Steve is noodling on his guitar, Mark says, "this is the beginning to our new song, Jazz Odyssey in which each instrument will imitate the sound of a different type of bird." They then launched straight into No One Has. As they're leaving the stage for the set break, Steve tells the crowd, "please be patient if you want to hear us play some more. Dan and Matt both have to change their shorts. Dan defecated in his." When they get back on-stage, they tease Smells Like Teen Spirit some more, and Mark talks about how the only bands you hear on the radio anymore are Soundgarden and Nirvana.
