Meatraffle will be releasing Base and Superstructure, their third studio album on 29th September on Blang Records.
Recorded during lockdown and produced & mixed by Meatraffle’s keyboardist Chris OC and Dante Traynor (SWEAT, Fat White Family). Base and Superstructure marks a new sonic departure for the band, rightly acknowledged as godfathers of the now infamous South London scene, centred around the Windmill in Brixton.
Intoxicatingly danceable, in full Base (sic.) & Superstructure, South London regulars Meatraffle navigate a sardonic, yet uplifting lyrical pathway through the bullshit life throws at you. Whether it’s giving your stage name when you’re arrested (if you’re guitarist, Tingle Lungfish) in “Street Names”, or mocking the “trickle down effect” in “Mannaggia La Miseria” or perhaps to give a respectful nod to PIL’s Love Song in “Love Song Industrial Complex”. It’s time to groove a revolution.
In addition to their previous two albums, Hi Fi Classics and Bastard Music, the band have released singles on Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground and Moshi Moshi, plus numerous remixes including ‘Meatraffle on the Moon’ by Andrew Weatherall. Meatraffle have also played sessions for Marc Riley (BBC 6Music) plus regular plays from other 6Music DJs including Iggy Pop, Gideon Coe and Amy Lamé.
Founded in 2014, Meatraffle have toured extensively across the UK and Europe as both a headline act and support to the likes of Fat White Family, Sleaford Mods and Warmduscher. Festival appearances include SXSW, Green Man and Liverpool Psych Fest.
