Here's a welcome return to vinyl for the Meat Puppets' incendiary self-titled debut LP. This is where their ramshackle rough'n'ready country-punk started, and they've thrown in a load of bonus material from the era to sweeten the deal.

'Meat Puppets' still sounds as arresting as when I first heard it - while their sound did get more refined later on, the early recordings really encapsulate the throwaway intensity that the band are best loved for, their virtuosity masked behind hammy shambling. 'Melons Rising' is a babbling proto-hardcore blast but this sharp, tight punky approach is tempered by a slovenly looseness and mumbled vocals.

They often sound like they're playing as fast and loud as they physically can and everything could fall apart any second, but then there are moments like 'Our Friends' where a sweet country-rock jangle is hiding under those grotesque lo-fi guitar tones, or the comically incoherent 'Meat Puppets' which sounds like The Cramps trying to jam whilst too drunk to stand. In short, this record still sounds just as nasty and great as it ever did.
