Music Library: Meat Purveyors + Medeski, Martin, and Wood


These two are nestled in between the Meat Pups and the Mekons, so this is a short installment.

Meat Purveyors - All Relationships Are Doomed To Fail (2002), "We Kill Evil," and "Hangman."  The Meat Purveyors are an Austin institution of aggressive, punk-influenced bluegrass.  This album and these two live tracks (both recorded at the legendary Yard Dog SXSW free shows) all kick mighty ass.

Medeski, Martin, and Wood - Combustication (1998).  Organ-dominated instrumental music pitched somewhere between the 70s groove jazz and jamband rock.  Not so bad, but not enough to make me seek out more.

"It's a Jungle In Here" is an album from our college years. You might enjoy that one.
