This extremely loud and grungy Pacific Northwest foursome, torchbearers of the overhyped ”Seattle Sound,” take their name from a Russ Meyer soft-porn movie; their music is only slightly more genteel. Imagine the heaviest of Black Sabbath heavy metal, only somewhat speeded up and with added touches of humor, and you have a good approximation of the Mudhoney way of life. The band — led by very, very loud guitarists Steve Turner and Mark Arm — seems to care less about songs than it does about reproducing the violence its members hear in their heads. The result conjures images of skyscrapers bashing, but wait: Fudge is not all noise.
