THE MEANIES cult classic and long out of print ‘Come N See’ album – remastered & repackaged on LP via Bang! Records.
Australia’s seminal punk-rock champs The Meanies are diving back into the vaults to re-master and re-issue this classic early release on vinyl.
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 Au Go Go.
From November 1990 to March 1991 they released a run of EPs and singles, as limited edition 7″ vinyl discs. Most of their material was written by Lindsay “Link Meanie” McLennan. They toured Australia, including appearances at Big Day Out festivals in 1992, 1993 and 1994. They supported local gigs by international artists from 1992, Nirvana, Redd Kross, Beastie Boys, Pearl Jam and Bad Brains.
Their debut studio album, Come ‘n’ See, appeared in April 1992, which was produced by Michael ‘Ded’ Kennedy and the Meanies. A PBS reviewer, described how they “had established themselves as one of Australia’s pre-eminent underground rock bands through cultivating a huge all-age following and upsetting the rock establishment by breaking attendance records in the nation’s capital cities.
In 1993 The Meanies toured Europe and the United States. While in the US they travelled to Seattle to record their second studio album with Conrad Uno producing.
