Derek Bostrom, who drummed and (as I’ve learned) originally sang for The Meat Puppets, uploaded a host of early 1980s demos of the band, some made even before they started getting proper gigs.

Not only will you hear feral early versions of “H-Elenore”, “Unpleasant”, “Blue Green God” and “In A Car”, they do a host of wild and surprising (and contemporary) covers that range from Vom’s “Punkmobile” to The Flesh Eaters’ “Sleeping Sickness” to Wire’s “Outdoor Miner”.

Check it all out here.

How about we post last week’s podcast again, in case you haven’t streamed or downloaded it yet…?

You can pretty much set your watch by the arrival of a new DYNAMITE HEMORRHAGE RADIO podcast, every two or three weeks or so, give or take a few days on either end. Our newest edition is our fortieth (four-zero; #40) and was recorded on the 4th of July in a place where said day is utterly meaningless and uncelebrated. I’ve been enjoying larding these shows up with new stuff rather than mp3s from my outrageously bountiful mp3 collection (you should see it!), primarily because every two weeks I keep hearing new stuff I think is totally rad. Case in point: THE COOLIES, PIECE WAR, THE YAKKS, DARK TIMES, MEN OH PAUSE, POW!, WOLF GIRL and COLD BEAT – all brand new. All great – or else we wouldn’t play it, right?

There’s also the new reissue of The Flesh Eaters“A Minute To Pray, A Second To Die” to contend with, as well as important material that its essential you listen to from Tales of Terror, The Milky Ways, Naked Spots Dance and others. It’s one hour and a few minutes, and it’s available for download on iTunes and Soundcloud and in other spots as well – like right here.

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.

To close out September in fine style, I’ve strung together 21 quality rocknroll compositions, grouped them into logical clusters, added some pithy and often insightful commentary, and called it DYNAMITE HEMORRHAGE RADIO, Edition #21. It’s the bi-weekly podcast I do. I hope you download it, or maybe stream it if you’d like. New stuff this time from Neonates, Los Tentakills, Ruby Pins, The Ar-Kaics and even the queen of swinging mademoiselle French pop herself, Clothilde.

Old(er) stuff this time leans loud, but not exclusively: Myelin Sheaths; Tyvek; early Meat Puppets; The Only Ones at their most “punk”; Terminal Waste Band even the disco/dub/krautrock band Tussle. I made it for you, so at least you should try a couple minutes, right? Oh – and this hideous Avant Gardener sleeve was deliberately chosen as the “art” for this episode. You can’t look away.

At one point (1980-81) THE MEAT PUPPETS were so experimental and deranged that they fit best on bills with arty synth bands and weird hardcore punk/goth bands who spit fake blood on stage. I’d have enjoyed this night of Los Angeles debauchery very much had I not been such a young’un at the time.
