One might consider Mudd Bucket a throwback to the hair metal bands of the eighties. And why? Because they are. They were formed in the late eighties and were doing support back then for Dee Snyder, Nazareth and Ace Frehley. Mudd Bucket uncovered a large West Coast following, particularly in the Pacific Northwest. A Seattle band by trade, their popularity grew. Their debut EP was released in 1992 under the name of ‘Dirty Monkeys’. A year later it was reprinted as the ‘Dirty Little Monkey EP’. Both editions sold through and have not seen the light again until today. The modern release is simply called Mudd Bucket because regardless of whether you called it ‘Dirty Monkeys’ or the ‘Dirty Little Monkey EP’ it was their one and only release. It has been remastered and repackaged and contains an 8-page booklet. A Northwest Lost Classic properly re-issued!

“I am uncertain whether to clarify Mudd Bucket as a hard rock or a heavy metal band, but one thing is for certain. They have my vote for either Seattle’s best hard rock band or Seattle’s best heavy metal band.” Subway Magazine.
