The story of Seattle’s rise to global rock supremacy in the late 80s and early 90s begins with Green River. Made up of Jeff Ament (bass), Mark Arm (guitar/vocals), Bruce Fairweather (guitar), Stone Gossard (guitar) and Alex Shumway (drums), the quintet put out three 12”s and a 7” single during its brief existence.

Green River’s influence on Seattle’s music scene spread far and wide thanks to the members’ dispersion into bands including Pearl Jam, Mudhoney and Love Battery, as well as the punk glam sludge rock songs they left behind. 

Green River, formed in 1984, were part of that evolution, with a sound that straddled a lot of different genres - blues, punk, bloozy straight-ahead rock. The mini-LP ‘Dry As A Bone’ - which came out in 1987 - and the band’s lone full-length Rehab Doll - which came out in 1988 - were released as a single CD with a few bonus cuts, including their sneering cover of David Bowie’s ‘Queen Bitch’ and their marauding version of Dead Boys’ ‘Ain’t Nothin’ to Do’, in 1990 - but they’ve been unavailable on vinyl for years.
