Meat Puppets – Monsters (CD)
This reissue contains 13 tracks including 3 bonus songs
Features a 12 page booklet full of photos, song lyrics and extensive liner notes by Mark Kemp (Vice President of Music Development, MTV), Brett Milano (Pulse!) and Derrick Bostrom (Meat Puppets drummer)
The last Meat Puppets album of the eighties was also their last one for an independent label. It wasn’t long after the 1989 release of Monsters that the Meat Puppets were off and running for newer and bigger things!
For this reissue, three tracks have been added, filling out the album’s running time to almost an hour. Along with two completely different versions of Flight of the Fire Weasel, also included is a recently discovered never before heard tune, Wish Upon a Storm. Recorded during the demos for Monsters but inexplicably left off the final album, it has been newly remixed for this edition.
The Meat Puppets started as a punk rock band but established their own unique style, blending punk with country and psychedelic rock, and featuring frontman Curt Kirkwood’s warbling vocals. They have influenced various rock bands such as Nirvana, Soundgarden, Dinosaur Jr, Sebadoh and Pavement.
