Biography

Mudcrutch was an early Tom Petty band, most of which evolved into Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. When Mudcrutch originally headed to Hollywood in search of their first record deal, the band consisted of Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, Danny Roberts, Benmont Tench and Randall Marsh. They signed with “Shelter Records” and released one single in 1975. “Depot Street” was the A-side with “Wild Eyes” being the B-side. The last incarnation of Mudcrutch consisted of future Heartbreakers Benmont Tench, Mike Campbell and Tom Petty. Tom Petty’s first band, The Sundowners were renamed The Epics. Around 1970, The Epics changed their name to Mudcrutch.

In August 2007, Tom Petty invited original members of Mudcrutch Randall Marsh and Tom Leadon to reunite with Heartbreakers Benmont Tench and Mike Campbell to reform Mudcrutch. They recorded an album, Mudcrutch, which was released on April 29, 2008, by Reprise Records, and contains 14 old and new tracks. “We would play and then we would just talk about the old days,” says Tom Leadon, who left the band in 1972. The band toured briefly in California to promote the album throughout April and the beginning of May 2008.

    Really, Bootleg Flyer is a way better song than Depot Street imo. I'm surprised that wasn't their Single and that it's not played that much.

    Yea, I love Mudcrutch and their album is enjoyable. Very Jammy type of record, but no way it compares to what they did in the '70s. Depot Street is a classic.

    You just knew that there would be someone on here pining away for the "old Mudcrutch" sound. And, of course, the "I found hem first" crowd was out in full force.

    Just bought the album. I really thought this band would have more than 68,000 plays.

    The band is influenced by The Animals and The Rolling Stones.

    Just listening to the album, this was completely under the radar for me as I just heard about Mudcrutch a couple days ago.

    Very good album, but it's not like Mudcrutch in the 70's. There a few old Mudcrutch tracks on the Playback box, and they are all killers. The new album is a bit too slow.

    On first listen, this is pretty good...best thing Petty's done since Wildflowers? Possibly.
