Meat Joy - s/t LP
Best wishes to everyone!
Here's a request of Aesop of the Cosmic Hearse blog. A pretty rare LP of Houston, TX band Meat Joy. They also appear on the 'Metal Moo Cow' comp. and 'Bands On The Block' comp., both on Matako Mazuri Records.
1500 copies pressed and each copy has a different sleeve (the scan of mine didn't work out well). You can check discogs for another sleeve.
Can't find any info on them. The record is a very weird one. Has strange home recordings as interludes, some acoustic guitar songs as well as some more punky tracks. 'Proud To Be Stupid' deals with the stagnant hardcore movement with it's own rules and intolerant behaviour. 'Slenderella' is about the so-called ideal looks that women have to strive for.
I scanned all the inserts that came with the record, except for the laundry bill which isn't that relevant.
