The 7-inch record isn’t just a format—it’s an art form. On each episode of The Spindle podcast, music writer Marc Masters and music historian (and music maker) John Howard dive into a great 7-inch, dissecting its background, impact, and the reasons why it stands out as a small plastic piece of music history. This week, the duo digs into the 1988 single by Mudhoney, “Touch Me I’m Sick” b/w “Sweet Young Thing Ain’t Sweet No More.” Emerging from the ashes of Green River and led by Mark Arm, Mudhoney would go on to be a huge part of Sub Pop Records history, and this gnarly anthem has more than stood the test of time. This week on The Spindle, Mark and John dig in. They’re diseased, but we don’t mind.
