Meat Puppets - Meat Puppets II Click here to see this CD at!

By Everett True

The seminal Phoenix trio's self-titled debut is one of the greatest hard-core punk records ever made--but it pissed the punk kids off. Whether it was the Meat Puppets' long hair (in '81!) or their set-opener "The King and I" it was hard to say. Yet they were reviled. Still, they broadened their horizons, mixing up their weird full-on frantic hardcore style with some Tex-Mex, some bluegrass, and a little desert sun. The result? The cultural icon Meat Puppets II, a landmark album that resonates with the acid trails and heat-driven madness of southwest America. (As a whole generation of musicians, from Dinosaur Jr.'s J. Mascis to Nirvana's Kurt Cobain and downwards, can attest.) Curt Kirkwood's dislocated guitar style veers between hillbilly, heavy metal, psychedelic, and the Oak Ridge Boys. His brother's bass sound is endearingly fallible. A wonderful, eccentric record (with seven bonus tracks!).

"Does anyone know what the "personal message from the Meat Puppets" on the back of the liner notes on this means?

It has three characters, a big dog and two old men trapped in donuts.
The dog says "smart pill."
The first old man says "old men trapped in donuts need ivory field"
the second old man says "ivory field for hands lost in egg tenderizer"

What the hell is that supposed to mean?"
