8/10 Ian Staff review, 20 November 2013

Let's go back to those amazing times back in the early nineties when grunge was just a mere twinkle in Seattle’s eye, before Nirvana were perhaps the biggest band on the planet and Sub Pop were still just a tiny American indie label.

1990 saw the release of ‘Screaming Life/Fopp’, a collection of two EPs from the early days of Soundgarden’s journey to rock superstars, here getting a long awaited reissue on CD and on vinyl for the first time in over twenty years, ‘Screaming Life/Fopp’ is the sound of a band who you just knew were going to go on to greater things, especially with Soundgarden going on to make such amazing albums as ‘Louder Than Love’, ‘Badmotorfinger’ and ‘Superunknown’.

Kim Thayil’s bluesy psychedelic guitar crunch combined with Chris Cornell’s screaming Robert Plant-esque high range vocal were a force to be reckoned with. Early bassist Hiro Yamamoto keeps the low end rumbling along perfectly with Matt Cameron’s super funky drums. Not only do you get the original track listing featured on the first release (like the two great covers of Green River’s ‘Swallow My Pride’ and The Ohio Players ‘Fopp’) you also get the extra song ‘Sub Pop Rock City’ (originally released on the ‘Sub Pop 200 Comp) about Seattle’s then-rising ‘grunge’ scene.

So, compared to Soundgarden’s later output it’s not particularly exciting, but as a little piece of their history it’s certainly something to remind you of how great Soundgarden really were!
