Mudhoney guitarist Steve Turner is to release his new 'solo' album on August 28 through Funhouse Recordings.
New Wave Punk Asshole sees Turner joined by his Bad Ideas - Johnny Sangster, Jim Sangster and Kevin Warner - for a whopping sixteen tracks, the first new material from Turner since Mudhoney's Under A Billion Suns LP.
A more in-your-face effort than previous Steve Turner records (so the press blurb says), New Wave Punk Asshole features a handful of 60s garage rock nuggets alongside a slew of swaggering pre-alternative alternative tracks. Yup, we're reading that press release again...
Turner is no stranger to side projects to his Mudhoney day job, of course: he has previously played in The Fall-Outs, The Monkeywrench (alongside Mark Arm), and the Throw Ups. Like, woooot.
