Simply the best, and the critics agree..
"It’d be easy for a lot of people coming at this record to deify it; the only sliver of output to make it out from a flat out brilliant writer who totally got it, who also died far too young and under far too unfortunate of circumstances. Do yourself a favor: don’t read into these Meat Thump songs. They’re not about Brendon’s demise, and the fact that it happened could not have influenced these songs, anyway, which were the product of a working band, with a pretty good concept of what rock music is/what life is, and from the sound of these two last call reminiscences from the bottom of the glass, just figuring out its sound. You get two mid-tempo Velvets/Jim Shepard style stumblers here, one seeking solace in the bag inside the box, the other bemoaning the universal truth “if it doesn’t feel good/why do I do it?” A tough question, for sure, and that someone so young would be asking it shows the type of thinker we were dealing with here – a profound one, with the common touch and the good sense to not rely on it. I hope that more Meat Thump recordings surface. 300 copies."

"This is 7" of the year for me, featuring the late great Brendon Annesley of Negative Guest List on guitar and vocals. As excellent a lyricist as he was a writer, two songs of A-grade downer slop rock. Pure rock n roll magic." - Nic Warnock, RIP Society Records
