3AM Eternal: The Freewheeling Mark Arm (1990)

freewheeling

In the long and storied Mudhoney discography, this little single is an anomaly. Surprisingly, it’s lead singer Mark Arm‘s only solo release, and it’s a corker. Yes, it’s designed as a parody of Bob Dylan‘s album of the same name, but that’s where the parody ends. His take on “Masters of War” is surprisingly straightforward, a faithful reading of the anti-war number. For those seeking Arm’s acerbic and twisted wit, check out the B-side, “My Life With Rickets,” a Mark Arm original that utilizes a Bo Diddley guitar lick. All in all a fine, fun release.
