Kurt Cobain's favourite band reform

There's a new record and tour on the way

Nirvana
One of Kurt Cobain's favourite bands, The Meat Puppets, have reunited for a new album and tour.

Originally formed in 1980, the band garnered widespread attention from their appearance on Nirvana's 1993 'Unplugged In New York' concert, where the grunge heroes played three Meat Puppets' songs.

Brothers Curt and Cris Kirkwood have now reunited for the first time since 1995's 'No Joke!', after which Cris suffered severe drug problems and served an 18 month prison sentence.

Despite losing contact with his brother for seven years, Curt told Billboard they have a new album ready, describing the songs as "sonic pyramids made out of garbage".

The band will also hit the road for currently unconfirmed dates closer to the album's release, joined by Primus drummer Tim Alexander.
