They signed a lot of unknowns. I think the focus on the northwest was something they helped develop, not something they responded to.

Well, it still can be. At least for me it's one of the many different things I consider epitomes of music cool.

Well, that could be a part of it too. I don't have a monopoly on information.

Plus the fact that they tour relentlessly and know how to deliver the goods live on a fairly consistent basis.

Sebadoh rules all!!!

they are notorious for being an uneven live band, because they do NOT FAKE IT, and if they feel like shit or if the audience is acting like fucking dipshits they will not pretend.
they are a fucking amazing band and everything they touch is gold. great songs, great riffs, great music.
My faves are bubble and scrape and smash yr head


and Lou is a nice fucking guy to boot.

----------------------------------------------

also, part of the deal when nirvana signed with geffen was that sub pop would get a small cut of the sales, whih helped subpop develop into a bigger label and expand their catalogue.

Nirvana or Mudhoney. Can't really choose between the two right now.

I'd say Sebadoh now but either Nirvana, Mudhoney or Soundgarden would have been my choice when I was a little grungehead all those years ago.

Soundgarden was not really a SubPop band. They were SST, mostly.

I didn't mean they went on to SST, I meant they didn't release alot of records on subpop. jesus everybody here is so desperate to be right and make other people look stupid, it's fucking boring.

Of course Green River never quite put on any of their records the intensity of what they were like live with Mark's Stooge rawk screamfest fighting with the obvious future pop sensibilities of Ament and Gossard. Mind, I hated Mother Love Bone and Pearl Jam make me projectile vomit, but Green River at their best were even better than Mudhoney at their best. Steve will hate me for saying it, but it's true. Mudhoney did better on record - at least you've got Super Fuzz Bigmuff and all the original singles, and maybe 5 songs from the first album... But Mark's stagedives into the crowd while still screaming with Green River back in the day before such things were cliche, paved the way for everything else Sub Pop ever stood for that was cool.

They had 7 (If you can't 13 Songs) incredible albums in a row.
