Meat Puppets: Meat Is Murmur

Terry Staunton, New Musical Express, 18 January 1992

Darlings of the critics for more than a decade, the MEAT PUPPETS have finally signed to a major and made their "first" album. A battered and bruised CURT KIRKWOOD tells TERRY STAUNTON what it's like to be in tune at last, how he terrorized Brian Wilson, and the affinity he feels with Van Gogh, Shakespeare and Walt Disney.
