"The music is folksy, rock 'n' roll, white boy bluesy. . .a gumbo. . . .it was made in El Cerrito after all, home of Creedence, so it's got a good helping of that too." - Peter Rudy 'Mud Shack is the dynamic debut of Peter Rudy backed by the wildly talented Apostles of Dirt. These are real lusty grooves that the Apostles lay down with sheer delight. They bring out the subtleties of the songwriting, which, coupled with Rudy's raw approach, turns the music into a real tour de force. The band is quite comfortable tracking Rudy's musical wanderings and style variations, splattering them with pure, driving emotion. The controversial San Francisco manager/promoter Alvin Brinkman declared 'Mud Shack', "a wonderful nugget, my favorite recording of the year."
