THE MEANIES 'Gangrenous/ In Search Of' Gatefold LP


THE MEANIES cult classic and long out of print 'Gangrenous' & 'In Search Of' EPs - remastered & repackaged together on LP via Poison City!

Poison City and Melbourne's seminal punk-rock champs The Meanies are diving back into the vaults to re-master and re-issue their classic early releases, 'Come N See', 'Gangrenous', 'In Search Of' and '10% Weird' on vinyl. The Meanies LP reissue series will include the 1991 debut album 'Come N See', both 'Gangrenous' and 'In Search Of' EPs on a single Gatefold LP and the 1994 classic '10% Weird' on 2xLP, remastered, repackaged and with select bonus tracks.

Forming in 1989, The Meanies' catchy-as-hell, buzz-saw style of punk rock and a reputation for blistering and often dangerous live shows quickly gained a cult following across Australia. After releasing several sold-out 7"s via influential Melbourne indie label/ shop Au Go Go Records, The Meanies unleashed their debut album 'Come N See' in 1991 which saw the band tour consistently to growing crowds across Australia and perhaps most importantly, cultivating a large all-ages scene. As well as releasing the 'The Meanie Of Life' and 'Televolusion' compilation albums, the always prolific Meanies also managed to squeezed out the 'In Search Of' and 'Cruelty's Fun' EPs between 1992-93, before heading to Seattle to record album number two. Spawning the singles 'Conan', '10% Weird' and 'Ton Of Bricks', the release of the '10% Weird' record in 1994 saw The Meanies become one of the Australia's most popular alternative bands through the mid-90's, scoring them supports with the likes of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Superchunk and Fugazi.
