Don't bother asking Twin Peaks about the deeper meaning of their band name. They simply thought it sounded cool, which explains why their second album Wild Onion (out August 5th on The Grand Jury) isn't as spooky or surreal as David Lynch's short-lived TV show. It's more like a modern day Nuggets, with Ty Segall, Black Lips and Thee Oh Sees curating instead of Lenny Kaye. Not literally, of course. But the spirit of those garage demigods is alive and well alongside subtle nods to everything from the Pixies and Tame Impala to the godfathers of guitar-guided pop music, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys.
----------The new record (Wild Onion) out August 5 2014.
Chad A. U.
Cory Thomas Hanson
-from Los Angeles
-Chad Ubovich began ripping through the rock scene in 2011 as guitarist
for Mikal Cronin and, eventually, bassist in FUZZ. In between tours,
he spent his time recording and playing shows around Los Angeles under
the name Chad and the Meatbodies. In 2012, Ty Segall released some of
Chad’s bedroom recordings via cassette tape on his GOD? Records
imprint. The tape was well received and people began to see Chad was
more than just a sideman to his heavy hitting comrades. In 2013, In
The Red took notice of Chad’s crunching, grinding sound and added his
band, now simply called Meatbodies to their roster.
For the first Meatbodies LP, titled Meatbodies, Chad chose to record
in San Francisco, utilizing the foggy, psychedelic atmosphere provided
by it’s surroundings, as well as the powers of master studio magician
Eric “King Riff” Bauer. Chad busted out an album’s worth of songs,
barely leaving the Technicolor underground quarters of Bauer’s trippy
sanctuary. Chris Woodhouse took on the mixing, giving the songs final
touches of controlled chaos. The end result is a sonic experience that
is truly evocative of its auteur. Unabashed, unrestrained, beautiful
and strange. Meatbodies are going to dominate your eyes and ears and
give you a bang over like you’ve never had before.
Michael "Chili" Hiller - bass/vocals
Michael "Magic" Fiore - guitar/vocals
Bird Man - drums/mustache
-from Los Angeles
-They play fantastically boisterous garage-punk. Touted as LA’s answer to Ty Segall, the debut LP, CRMNL HYGNE satisfies with it’s beer-soaked songs about heartache, and well, drinking beer.
