Album Review: Meat Puppets - 'Lollipop'
They may be on a long term comedown but their music isn't suffering
The psychedelic punk assault of days gone by may have mellowed through the passing of time to an acid-blanched jangle, but the juddering grunge thump of ‘Orange’ and the playful reggae-fied clamour of ‘Shave It’ sound anything but weary. That actually-rather-fine opener ‘Incomplete’ bears a baffling resemblance to po-faced ’80s types Ultravox can be overlooked; there’s clearly plenty of life in the muckers yet.
