Product Description

CD Description

Recorded at Spoon s HiFi Studios in Austin, Texas, the album features the indelible Kirkwood brothers, Cris and Curt. SPIN summed up the hypnotic power by saying, "the interplay of Curt's drowsy vocals and freaky guitar can still induce vertiginous spells." Also new to this album is the addition of drummer Shandon Sahm, son of the legendary Doug Sahm. Lollipop is chock full of tunes that run the stylistic gamut. Case in point, the opening keyboard-laced "Incomplete" (that Curt wrote back in 1983, and envisioned as "something that I thought would be good for Elvis or Engelbert Humperdinck in the '60s") and the rocking "Hour of the Idiot," to the sunny ska of "Shave It," and such acoustic country ditties as "Baby Don't" and "The Spider and the Spaceship." And Cris certainly approves of the finished product. "The continuity that runs through Curt's work is just a trip, and how you can reference different parts. I think it's a fairly bitching effort, considering the amount of time we put into pre-work. I think it's indicative of where the band's at right now. It's a fairly fluid moment, and that's a trip, considering how long we've been at it and the band's history. Curt's been at it non-stop, and I'm pleased to be able to provide him with a stable outlet for his art." The highly influential Meat Puppets started as a punk rock band, but established their own unique style, blending punk with country and psychedelic rock. The Meat Puppets later gained significant exposure when the Kirkwood brothers served as guest musicians on Nirvana's MTV Unplugged performance in 1993. The band's subsequent album Too High to Die went gold, selling over 500,000 albums, and became their most successful release. The band reunited in 2006. Everyone from Nirvana to Pavement to Stone Temple Pilots cite The Meat Puppets as one of the most significant American bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars `Rebel' Rod's Reviews - Meat Puppets' are definitely back with "Lollipop" (Mega Force Records) 13 April 2011
By 'Rebel' Rod Ames - Published on Amazon.com
By `Rebel' Rod Ames

Meat Puppets has been in and out of the spotlight from time to time over the last 30 years, dating back to their formative years in the 80's. There have been ups, downs; they've been turned upside down and sideways; you get the picture. The band has been all over the map, both figuratively and literally speaking.

Meat Puppets had an extremely large persuasion on many bands, but the most notable influence would have to be Nirvana who recorded Meat Puppet's "Lake of Fire".

Their latest record, "Lollipop" shows a level of maturity I never expected from Meat Puppets co-founders Cris and Curt Kirkwood. In addition, I wasn't sure the two components, "mature" and Meat Puppets would or could necessarily result in a good thing. After listening to "Lollipop", believe me, it is a fantastic thing.

"Lollipop" is Meat Puppets at their most talented. The distinct vocalizations, and rhythmic triads all bind together to aid Meat Puppets in retaining their own identity. There was not a single instance where I found myself making comparisons to anyone else. It is all Meat Puppets throughout.

Cris and Curt Kirkwood have managed to reinvent themselves by simply returning to what makes them so good - THEM. These twelve original songs seem more expertly crafted than ever, displaying to the world they have grown and matured into a much tighter band.

Literally, every song on the album is right on. Each song is almost perfect in every way and each song has separate, yet very much Meat Puppet's own sonically gratifying signature written all over it.

In 2009, they re-added Shandon Sahm, who originally signed on in 1999, as their drummer. He is solid all the way through, serving to hold everything together, allowing the different sections of the music to work so solidly in unanimity.

Of the records twelve very solid tunes, and if I had a gun held to my head being forced to pick one song on the record as my favorite, I'd probably choose "Baby Don't". It possesses that wickedly cool twangy Austin "cowpunk" sound, while maintaining the much written about Meat Puppet style.

Meat Puppets have certainly had a career that at times seemed rudderless, but with "Lollipop", they appear to have found their way and are definitely back on track.

The album released April 12th on MegaForce Records.

`Rebel' Rod says definitely check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Meat Puppets - Lollipop 13 April 2011
By William Joyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Meat Puppet's newest release "Lollipop" is Excellent. It's cowpunk at it's best. So if you are looking for a heavy album, this is not for you. You have a variety a songs that all sound different then each other. My favorite song off the album personally is "Shave It" It has such a wonderful melody. "Spider and the spaceship" is also a very interesting song. Shandon Sahm the drummer from the album "Golden Lies" is back on this album of course with Cris and Curt Kirkwood. This album did not let me down at all. I recommend it to all Puppet fans and people who love 90's alternative. How I grew into these guys with that crazy 90's movement. Oh and the artwork will definitely impress you. A monster coming out of the toilet holding a lollipop. That's just too freaking awesome! So in conclusion, I rate this album 5 Stars out of 5 Stars. Curt, I knew you wouldn't let me down with your crazy bizarre underrated beautiful song writing. Long live the Puppets my favorite band of all time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in years! 1 Jun 2011
By will mccord - Published on Amazon.com

Lollipop isn't about the direction that Kirkwood, et al moves toward this time around, it's all about where they've individually and collectively been in their lives that molds the sound. The musical road map spans from Meat Puppets II up through Too High To Die, Snow and Eyes Adrift. As you listen to each track you'll be amazed by what you hear and which era the sounds transport you to. All the various styles of the years have been molded in to a tight, purposeful sound that is uniquely and unmistakably the Meat Puppets. I dare say that there is a vibe of peace, humor, humility and ennui mixed with a strong dose of a mushroom induced point of view that when wadded up and thrown against the wall, results in a sun that shines with familiar heat, while also sounding polished and even new to me. If you're like me and Curt Kirkwood's music seems to run your engine like a tank full of racing fuel, give Lollipop a try and I betcha if you bring your Lantern, it'll set fire to your night.

5.0 out of 5 stars the rush of cow-punk? 17 April 2011
By Gil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like rush, but for different reasons, meat puppets should be in the rock hall of fame and should have a display in the hard rock cafes of the world, etc. (so should other SST bands like Minutemen; maybe just induct, enshrine SST). this record is another gem from the post-"Golden Lies" and Curt solo phase. I personally always like their harder rocking, or obtuse psychedelic stuff best. This has touches of those styles, but as others have pointed out these are songs that fit into the puppets "new groove." It's all genius stuff, still, and anybody who is crazy about the meat puppets has learned to expect these kinds of amazing results from their studio work. this one is no exception. I wish more artists would write like this. it seems like art, in fact.

the recording (mix, master, etc.) is probably the best production since the solo cd Curt did called "Snow." Probably 4 songs for me are in the all time puppets top tier. all are very good to great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Meat Puppets are back! 17 Mar 2013
By Steve Eagle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Lollipop is a great release that has grown on me over the last few listens. While I'll always love their 80s and early 90s material, they kind of lost me after No Joke. Sewn Together, Golden Lies and Rise To Your Knees are all decent albums but not ones I find myself going back to that often. But Lollipop seems a lot more honest and fun than those and a lot more memorable as well. I love the country-tinged tracks like Shave It and Baby Don't, but it's really The Spider and The Spaceship that steals the show for me. Vintage oddball Meat Puppets that will make any jaded music fan smile with its bizarre lyrics and simplistic musical approach - both trademark Puppets characteristics. Lollipop is a great album and any Puppets fan should have it in their collection.
