Meat Puppets and mike watt + the jom & terry show

It doesn’t take long after listening to the Meat Puppets’ thirteenth studio album overall, ‘Lollipop,’ to realize that they have boiled the essence of what the group is all about right down to its core. As a result, singer/guitarist Curt Kirkwood, bassist Cris Kirkwood, and drummer Shandon Sahm have an instant Meat Puppets classic on their hands, and an album that fits in perfectly with such mid ’80s classics as ‘Up on the Sun’ and the underrated ‘Mirage’ (while not coming off as an attempt to recreate a certain musical era of the group). Interestingly however, the Meat Puppets did not achieve this by working out the songs’ arrangements beforehand, or even extensively rehearsing together.
