where did sludge start?

    • Just seen someone mention sludge started in Nottingham and I realised I've no idea if that is correct. I suspect it might be true for the UK but is it? And where / who do we consider to be the birth of sludge overall?

    • I always assumed New Orleans.

    • I have always thought I was first used to describe Crowbar's music back in the NINETIES!!!!!

    • Now then we'd roughly decided that it was ehg, formed in 88 but crowbar formed in 89, beat ehg to their first record by 12 months (91/92)

      Melvins were suggested but we're sidelined as being an influence on sludge but not actually sludge themselves

    • EHG were always referred to as a Punk band when they first started though?? Or was Sludge used to describe them back then??

    • No idea but they would seem to be the earliest band that we'd now describe as sludge regardless of what they were called then
