Big Foot Rock was what they used to call the Seattle scene before the term grunge was coined. The roots of their music is definitely punk, especially the bands Green River, Mudhoney and Nirvana. Green River was some sort of a “supergroup” in reverse because of the bands it spawned – Mudhoney and Mother Love Bone (and eventually Pearl Jam).
All the bands grudge bands, it’s the Screaming Trees that I like the most. Their music is remotely related to punk, and actually more akin to 60’s psychedelia. But I guess it doesn’t matter when you talk about good music.
