From the page for the Tampa-based Meatwound at Magic Bullet Records:
“According to news reports, Florida is a human wasteland that doesn’t give a shit about laws or decency. It is a swamp ridden cesspool of crime, drugs, carnies, and mutation. We have contributed much asshole culture and music to the world. Tampa specifically, has given the children Assück, Scrog, Death, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Obituary, Reversal of Man, Combatwoundedveteran, Nasty Savage and more. Seputura and Napalm Death came to record here. Cannibal Corpse moved here to live. The Brass Mug is here. Morrisound is here. There are no rules. We are ugly and primitive and short in the attention span. So, as old men, MEATWOUND comes from all that steaming shit pot of geographical music waste and the sounds of our collective childhoods. We grew up in the late 80s/early 90s on the first Earache bands, the first Relapse records, Tampa death metal, Public Enemy, Dischord shit, Steve Albini rampages, Wax Trax, Crass Records, drugs, skateboarding, horror movies, the usual.”
Word got out a little late about the Meatwound show tonight (Wed., 7/13) at The Jinx, but the gig is worthy of special note because the band has performed with our own Black Tusk (who highly recommend tonight’s show). Meatwound appears to have a busy summer and fall on tap.
Plus, there’s The Jinx’s usual Wednesday night Rock and Roll Bingo.
