Mudhoney Retrospective On The Way

Fans of Mudhoney, or anyone who likes their rock thick and fuzzy for that matter, should be pleased to note that the band will deliver a two-CD retrospective early next year.

The as-yet-untitled 52-track collection spans the seminal grunge band's eleven-year career and is expected to arrive on January 18 via Sub Pop Records. One disc will be devoted to the band's greatest not-quite-hits, while the second will carry b-sides, rarities, and soundtrack material.

The news of the set comes just months after original bassist Matt Lukin left the band. The group has not yet disbanded, though its future plans are still up in the air (see "Mudhoney's Lukin Quits Music; Band In Limbo").
