Like a cartoon mallet to the head, THE MEATMEN – a 35-year old legacy band – lives on as one of the most recognizable names in punk and metal. The band’s primal decree, We’re The Meatmen, AND YOU SUCK! is synonymous with the era and the attitude of hardcore punk. The Mighty Men of Meat are anchored by the sharp-tongued wit of statuesque frontman Tesco Vee, co-creator of the original Touch & Go Records and the fanzine. Today, Vee and company continue to entertain fans with hilariously heavy records and a memorable live spectacle -replete with wild costuming and a gigantic confetti-spewing penis.
THE MEATMEN formed in Lansing, MI in 1979 when a young, crate-digging schoolteacher named Bob Vermeulen blended his passion for Frank Zappa, R. Crumb comics and the burgeoning hardcore punk scene into a band of his own. The band became renowned for their unpredictable stage antics and incredibly offensive lyrics. With song titles such as, “Crippled Children Suck” and the loner’s masturbatory anthem, “Orgy of One,” The Meatmen’s turn towards the absurd went on to inspire bands like GWAR, TURBONEGRO and WEEN.
THE MEATMEN, with their signature brand of silly and scatological humor, have long- weathered and defined musical trends. History has proven them to be the clown-prince anti-heroes of punk and pop culture. In a world of serious music that deals with world politics and social injustices, THE MEATMEN are simply here to sing songs about poop and boners to ultimately remind us all that they are THE MEATMEN… “AND YOU SUCK!!!”
