The idea behind the Thrown Ups was to have a band where no one ever practiced and no one ever wrote songs. At their first show opening for Hüsker Dü in February of 1985, the group brought raw oysters to throw at the audience if the reaction was negative. The response turned out to be positive, but the band doused the crowd with the sea creatures anyway.

On the back cover, influential producer Jack Endino claims that the Thrown Ups "started the whole Seattle sound. That may be a stretch, but grunge definitely would not be as nasty without this project. Songs are irrelevant, titles like "Bucking Retards" and "Sloppy Pud Love" give you an idea of where this Seattle combo is coming from. It is grunge with the tunefulness taken out, on the complete other end of the spectrum from Pearl Jam, hovering close to early Melvins or the Fastbacks.
