The Meat Puppets are still kicking, and that's a good thing. For more than three decades (!) the Brothers Meat—that's Curt and Cris Kirkwood—have gone through the usual rock 'n' roll tropes (major labels, Cris' drug problems) and handled the Cobain Bump pretty well, too. That's all a distant memory. Since Cris' return to the fold on 2007's Rise to Your Knees, the Meat Puppets have continued to release a steady stream of material that harkens back to their SST days, with an ear to the future. Their latest album Rat Farm (and their third on Megaforce's heavy-on-metal roster) plays up their strengths: heavy folk, heavy quirk, heavy psych. It's great stuff, and it's been a long time coming.
