Green River / U-Men
Away In A Manger / Blue Christmas

Green River, the ‘80s Sub Pop band featured Mark Arm and Steve Turner who would go on to form Mudhoney and Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament who would later appear as part of Pearl Jam. U-Men were also a Seattle band with links to Gas Huffer and Monkeywrench. Each band recorded a Christmas song and it seemed neither would fit on any of the band’s albums. So here we have two pariahs consciously coupled on a 7” single: Green River’s Away In A Manger and U-Men’s version of Blue Christmas. Limited Edition 7” Single on Sub Pop


Simple to put this one. A triple LP or double CD anthology which includes literally everything U-Men released from the studio, plus an additional 5 tracks that have never been released, all remastered. Their unique sound paved they way for the grunge generation in Seattle, so if you like your alt-rock punky, avantgarde, frantic and party centric, hail the U-Men.
