Seattle proto-grunge rockers Skin Yard — whose members included Jack Endino, producer of Nirvana’s ‘Bleach,’ and future Soundgarden and Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron — this month reissued most of its catalog digitally, with each record remastered and one, 1990’s ‘Fist Sized Chunks,’ remixed.
Soundgarden this fall will release ‘Telephantasm,’ a new best-of spanning the band’s debut on the seminal 1986 proto-grunge comp ‘Deep Six’ to its final album, ‘Down on the Upside,’ a decade later — with a previously unreleased ‘Badmotorfinger’ outtake thrown in for good measure.
