For over 30 years, legendary desert punks the Meat Puppets, featuring brothers Curt and Cris Kirkwood, have carved a unique niche for themselves with an unmistakable blend of cosmic country and punk rock filtered through countless acid trips, dog-eared comic books and their eclectic record collections.

Along the way they’ve earned the admiration of a pantheon of critics and rock music peers. The certified classics reach back to Meat Puppets I, Meat Puppets II and Up On The Sun, and have been book-ended by recent releases Sewn Together, Lollipop and Rat Farm.

Getting name-checked as a favorite by Kurt Cobain is quite a nice addition to any band’s resume, but the Meat Puppets received one of their highest accolades when the Nirvana frontman personally invited Curt and Cris to perform three Puppets classics (“Plateau,” “Oh, Me,” and “Lake of Fire”) on the band's MTV Unplugged taping, which has gone down as arguably the greatest episode ever.

The Meat Puppets self-titled debut album was issued in the summer of 1982 to near unanimous praise from the rock press. The New York Rocker called it "one of the most forcibly gripping blobs of wax ever created," and New Musical Express called the Meat Puppets "near-virtuosos, three of the most inspired musicians living under the sun." Clocking in at just over 20 minutes, Meat Puppets features 14-tracks, including the band's classic versions of "Walking Boss" and "Tumblin' Tumbleweeds." This vinyl reissue of the album includes the original 14 cuts plus the 1981 5-track EP In A Car and a download card.
