For close to 40 years, legendary desert rockers the Meat Puppets have carved a unique niche for themselves with an unmistakable blend of cosmic country and and acid-tinged punk rock filtered through their own unique sensibility. Along the way they've earned the admiration of critics, fans and their peers. Now, the brothers Curt Kirkwood (guitar/vocals) and Cris Kirkwood (bass/vocals) are back with original drummer Derrick Bostrom.
Absent behind the kit for over twenty years, Bostrom rejoined the band last year for a one-off reunion show in honor of their induction into the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame. The chemistry was undeniable, so in May of this year, Bostrom agreed to play with the band on an ongoing basis.
Joining the original trio are long-time second guitarist (and full-time Curt offspring) Elmo Kirkwood and Ron Stabinsky (Peter Evans Quartet, Mostly Other People Do The Killing) on keyboards.
Says Derrick, "It's so great to be to play with the band again; It feels like we picked up right where we left off."
"It's incredible how it's worked out," say Cris. "Suddenly, It's the three of us again. And when you add Elmo and Ron to the mix, the band is taking it to the next level."
The Meat Puppets might evolve but their sound is unique – you'll never mistake them for anyone else. They will never go out of style.
