Polaroids of the MEAT PUPPETS, live in Phoenix 1980. This is when they were playing hardcore punk in such a wacked-out, wild fashion that it came across as pure mockery, and very often was. I heard them on the Maximum RocknRoll Radio show not long after this and thought it was the greatest band name I’d ever heard to date.

I promptly told my friends in middle school that I was “listenin’ to the Meat Puppets these days”, though the truth was I couldn’t handle them until at least 4 few years later.
