Amoeba Review

04/15/2013

Thank god for the Meat Puppets. True American rock originals, the brothers Kirkwood have beaten their own psychedelic cowpunk path through the weedy underbrush nigh on four decades now, and they still sound like no one else. Cris and Curt blasted out of Phoenix and onto SST in the early '80s, forging a major part of that label's cranky, wildly creative sound. With their country-slop-on-angel-dust tunes, Curt's head-scratching solos and warbly, stoney croon, they were a huge influence on grunge and Kurt Cobain in particular (he had them guest on Nirvana's legendary MTV Unplugged session). After a few hiatuses now and then, the Pups are back in full effect, and just as freaky and fiery as ever. Though he claims that Rat Farm is an attempt to simplify their sound, it's still a magnificent hodgepodge of cowpunk, prog, reggae, funk and electronic weirdness, with Curt's son Elmo sizzling on backup guitar. However weird and otherwordly they get, a real heart of dusty Americana beats through it all. Come on down to the rat farm pardner!
