After more than two decades without releasing a record, iconic Melbourne pub rock punks the Meanies have announced they'll be dropping their first new album - It's Not Me, It's You on September 25 through Poison City Records.
The Meanies have one of the most storied histories in Australian rock. Four mates that loved beer and punk rock came together in 1989 and somehow landed on a formula of snotty power-pop that would see them tour the world, supporting the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, The Beastie Boys, The Lemonheads, Bad Brains and Fugazi. At their peak, Link, Wally, DD and Ringo were selling records left, right and centre, establishing themselves as one of the country's most adored underground heroes. And when it all got a bit too much and they called a hiatus in 1995, they were one of the few that could never be accused of trying to sell out or cash in on the post Nirvana boom. Since reforming in 1998, they've kept things simple, playing just a handful of shows each year in order to keep the spirit of The Meanies alive for what tallies up to a staggering 26 years now. See the Meanies play new tracks from It's Not Me, It's You as well as old favourites at this special Sydney launch show. Get in fast, as tickets will move fast.
