As expected, total silence from BV readership when it comes to any music history that pre-dates Emo.

One flaccid joke above and that's it?

Never been a fan of The Meatmen or the Hate Police, but Tesco has always seemed like a great frontman...have fun dude!

Never dug the Meatmen, but 9:48 I'll chime in and say I thought it was cool to see an "older" name pop up here.

Yes, agreed didnt really ever dig on the Meatmen except for the song "1 down 3 to go" or whatever its called but glad to see hes still kickin.

to be fair, do you really expect people that worship at the altar of animal collective and arcade fire to give two shits about the meatmen and negative approach? This is their parent's music era, but their parents were busy listening to Huey Lewis back then.

I wanted to point out that at the Riot Fest Tesco Vee is playing with the Meatmen and not with the Hate Police which is almost as awesome as the Corrosion of Conformity group lineup from 1985 playing this year.
