You remember that Meat Puppets are coming to Exit/In on June 17, right? I mean, of the apparent '90s takeover that's seizing Middle Tennessee with its flannel-clad, be-tatted arms over the next several weeks, this is one show that definitely won't make you say, "Jesus, the '90s were stupid." Then again, the Puppets actually formed and put out the bulk of their records in the '80s, so maybe that's their saving grace. Anyhow, Meat Puppets have sent us a brand-new track to share with everyone. Check it out:
"Rotten Shame" is off their album Sewn Together, which hits stores today. (That album title remind anyone else of the Dethklok song?) I've already listened to that track about nine times; as far as I can tell, they still know how to write a solid punk song with a damn fine melody. I haven't gotten to listen to the rest of the record yet, but the L.A. Times has a feature on Meat Puppets that's certainly worth reading. Enjoy the track.
