Soundgarden Talks Anniversary Editions Of Superunknown and Badmotorfinger
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.02.2014

In an interview with Billboard, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil spoke about the upcoming 20th anniversary edition of Superunknown and the possibility of a 25th anniversary edition of Badmotorfinger.

On a compilation of B-sides and non-album tracks: "I've been talking about that since the mid-90s -- people still ask me about it in the (online) forums. But then the band broke up, and I thought when we got back together four and a half years ago we'd start on that project. But first we did the retrospective best-of (2010's "Telephantasm") and then a live record (2011's "Live on I-5") and then a new album (2012's 'King Animal') came out, and these tours came up and now 'Superunknown's' 20. But the B-sides and all that stuff will be compiled in the future into a separate, stand-alone record."

On a deluxe edition of 1991's Badmotorfinger in 2016: "We definitely have discussed giving this treatment to 'Badmotorfinger,' for sure. There are some B-sides, live material, I believe there may be rehearsal material. 'Badmotorfinger' was very influential in the rock community. It had a strong influence on other musicians. 'Superunknown' probably did as well, but it's success was not just with musicians but with fans as well. 'Badmotorfinger' had an impact with listeners but also with guitarists and drummers and singers, people who started bands. It definitely deserves the same kind of treatment we're giving ('Superunknown')."

On the band's current work: "We're very happy and proud of the 'Superunknown' album reaching its 20th year, but I think the band is primarily concerned about being a current, vital concern. But at the same time there certainly is an interest in anniversaries. I think it makes sense, fully, especially for a band like Nirvana that doesn't have new product other than what they have in the catalog. And it make sense for Pearl Jam; they did a big 20th anniversary thing. I think the record company is pretty eager and excited about the fact we're from the same place, around the same time. And at least we have the material that justifies it."
