!K7 Records have unveiled the first video to be released from Mudhoney: Live in Berlin, 1988, the upcoming DVD of Mudhoney’s performance at the Independent Days Festival in Berlin that year. In stores on November 13th, Mudhoney: Live in Berlin, 1988 (Pre-Order available at Amazon.com) allows fans and those interested in owning a piece of music history an opportunity to relive the first ever Grunge concert to take place in Europe through recently re-discovered and never before seen footage. In anticipation of the DVD release, !K7 has unveiled video of the song “If I Think”, premiered today on VICE’s Noisey.com.
A testament to the enduring vitality of the independent music scene, the DVD release celebrates the 27th anniversary of !K7, a Berlin-based independent label and distributor with offices in New York and London, and an internationally renowned purveyor of electronic music in particular. In its early days, !K7 also served as a video production company run by label-owner Horst Weidenmüller, whose crew filmed a number of performances from that year’s Berlin Independent Days festival. Weidenmüller recently rediscovered the Mudhoney footage, realising that he held in his hands a crucial rock ‘n’ roll document that had to be shared with the world.
