Meat Puppets: Meat Puppets (SST/Thermidor)

Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, 4 September 1982

PHOENIX, ARIZONA may or may not be the baking asshole of the universe, but one thing is certain: music of this almost otherworldly nature could not be created within the confines of the civilised world. It could not be born in New Work, or London, or even L.A.. It is music that pleads a kind of lost madness as its guiding inspiration.
