AUDIO: Soundgarden Sub Pop reissue streaming

The forthcoming November 26 reissue of Soundgarden's debut Sub Pop EPs – 1987’s “Screaming Life” and 1988’s “Fopp” – is now streaming online.

Remastered by producer Jack Endino, the reissue marks the first time these tracks will be available digitally, and their first appearance on vinyl since the original, late-80s pressings (notwithstanding a long-gone, late-’90s repress of “Screaming Life”).

“Ah, Screaming Life, Soundgarden’s debut, and one of the first real records I made for anyone outside my own band,” said Endino. “I already knew Soundgarden pretty well, since they and Skin Yard had shared the stage many times in Seattle’s tiny club scene circa 1985-1986.”

“Soon after opening Reciprocal Recording in July 1986, there I was with Soundgarden, trying to make the most of our eight tracks,” he continued. “Somehow, we found room for all of Matt Cameron’s ‘bonus tubs,’ Hiro’s primordial Fender bass, and a whopping four tracks to share between Kim Thayil’s mad guitar psychedelia and Chris Cornell’s still-expanding voice. ‘Nothing To Say’ was the song that made us all look at each other and go, ‘uh, holy crap, how did we do this?’”

Currenbtly on a break from tehri “King Animal” world tour, Soundgarden are set to return to live action in March as they play Lollapalooza dates in Chile, Argentia and Brazil; they are also scheduled to open for three Black Sabbath shows in Germany in June.
