    Just thought I’d dig out all my old Meat Puppets stuff, god they’re great aren’t they, even the really early stuff, splendid.

    That is all.

    Oh Ween are great too, was listening to them earlier, not that I’m gay or anything.

    Never really crossed my radar (is that a phrase?) I don’t tend to bother with old stuff, unless its really original, what they like?

    You’ll have heard at least three of their songs surely, Nirvana covered Plateau, Oh Me and Lake Of Fire on Unplugged and a couple of the Meat Puppets were on the session.

    Hmmm, I got some Minutemen but never really went for Meat Puppets. Maybe I will go dig some up…

    If it’s the meat puppets I’m thinking of they were basically the forerunner to Nirvana.

    Cheers for making me dig out the Minutemen too – still good after not hearing it for prob 15+ years!

    Brilliant. I used to love old hardcore/punk/rock, barely listen to it these days. Might dig out my old stuff.

    What about some Big Black or Husker Du

    That’s me happy 😀

    That Drive Like Jehu album is a great turbo trainer record, still listen to it a lot (and Hot Snakes, somewhat related).

    I had Huevos by the Meat Puppets on vinyl, which I liked, a lot. Some of their other stuff is pretty dire though (Dadrock you might say Dez ;-))

    Had the pleasure of seeing them live in the early 90’s still one of my most memorable concerts ever.

    Good thread, seen a few of these. Unfortunately, not Minor Threat though.

    Who released an album with a picture of a skater in a full pipe on the cover? I thought it was JFA but cant remember properly much from back then.

    Nah, you’re thinking of the Pixies.

    Any one of the bands on the SST label are worth a listen
