Soundgarden's Kim Thayil, a former DJ at KEXP (KCMU), was kind enough to stop by the KEXP studios to share his thoughts on a multitude of topics and one of the most exciting nuggets he shared was the news that the band had taken back the rights to 1988's Ultramega OK from SST, in order to remix it with Jack Endino and then release it on Sub Pop.
