The Meatmen return after 12 years

Twelve years gone since The Meatmen closed shop, now they return with a 24 track work, Cover The Earth, featuring many of Tesco’s favorites from the last 40 years. Conceived in East Lansing, MI circa ‘79, The Meatmen were punk mainstays during the eighties and much of the nineties. They’ve played with many of the greats, including Misfits, Minor Threat, Fear, Dead Kennedys, The Fix, Necros, Negative Approach, and more. Cover The Earth sees The Meatmen take on everyone from Fear, GG Allin, Johnny Thunders, to Jimmy Dean, 10CC, and The Temptations. The album features a full-color 12-page booklet and more.

In other news, Tesco Vee of the Meatmen is now a toy. The people of Aggronautix have created a limited-edition figure (1000 numbered units) standing 7 inches tall, and made of a lightweight polyresin. Displayed in a tri-windowed box, Tesco is accurately sculpted right down to the ABBA pants and clogs.
