Meat Puppets Mirage on LP + Download Card
For over 30 years, legendary desert punks the Meat Puppets, featuring brothers Curt and Cris Kirkwood, have carved a unique niche for themselves with an unmistakable blend of cosmic country and punk rock filtered through countless acid trips, dog-eared comic books and their eclectic record collections.
Along the way they’ve earned the admiration of a pantheon of critics and rock music peers. The certified classics reach back to Meat Puppets I, Meat Puppets II and Up On The Sun, and have been book-ended by recent releases Sewn Together, Lollipop and Rat Farm.
Getting name-checked as a favorite by Kurt Cobain is quite a nice addition to any band’s resume, but the Meat Puppets received one of their highest accolades when the Nirvana frontman personally invited Curt and Cris to perform three Puppets classics (“Plateau,” “Oh, Me,” and “Lake of Fire”) on the band's MTV Unplugged taping, which has gone down as arguably the greatest episode ever.
Vinyl version with download code of the Meat Puppets at their psychedelic peak! A tightly crafted labor of love, Mirage was originally issued in the spring of 1987 as the full-length follow-up to the band's third album Up on the Sun (1985) and EP Out My Way (1986). Joe Sasfy of the Washington Post hailed Mirage as "the band's finest, as close to a polished artistic arrival as you'd want from a frisky anti-pop band committed to musical spontaneity and adventure."
