Meat Puppet manifesto

It's going to arrive too late for the Christmas books market - perhaps, though, they're not aiming for that with a definitive history of the Meat Puppets. It's going to be arriving early in the new year:

authored by Jake Brown and featuring exclusive, first-hand interviews with brothers Curt and Cris Kirkwood, as well as the band's other band members- including ex-drummer Derrick Bostrom, producers- including an exclusive interview with Butthole Surfers' guitarist/MP producer Paul Leary, and related eye-witnesses, this book marks the first authorized study of the writing and recording process behind the band's catalog of 12 studio LPS- including a real-time chronicle of the Pup's recording of their 13th album- this book is a must-have for any MP fan!

Let's hope the book isn't quite as overwritten as the blurb.
