The Kirkwood brothers and drummer Derrick Bostrom launched the Meat
Puppets in '80.
They had definite Punk leanings, while managing to
incorporate Country, Thrash and psychedelic elements.
The group took
their name from the title of a song Curt wrote that appeared on the
group's '82 self-titled debut for the legendary Punk label, SST.
