From The Vault: Meat Puppets Perform on The Late Late Show w/ Craig Kilborn (2000)

Who says the As Seen On TV section here at Concert Confessions must be relegated to stuff that aired this week.. or this decade for that matter.

A few weeks ago, we shared with you a ‘From The Vault’ piece that contained video of the Meat Puppets performing on the pilot episode of Beverly Hills 90210. We can all agree that it was an awesome nugget of history to find.  In the same post, this writer and Meat Puppets super-fan asked if anyone out there happen to have somewhere on a hard drive in their ex-wives storage, the episode(s) of Craig Kilborn that the band appeared on in  October of 2000.  Welp, someone found it!

With a clever  and factual YouTube user name of “PearlJamBlowGoats”, it seems we have at least one of the songs performed on the show up on the internet now. This is the “Golden Lies” era of the Meat Puppets, and it features Shandon Sahm on Drums, Kyle Ellison adding a 2nd guitar and I hope to be corrected if I’m wrong, but that looks like Andrew Duplantis on Bass, as this was a sans-Cris Kirkwood time of the band.  The video of the band performing “Hercules” is below, and that says “Dork” on Shandon’s chest at the end of the song; let’s pray that CBS doesn’t take this down-but we will hint that in messages with the uploader of this video, there IS more to come.


As you know by now, the Meat Puppets have a book out, an oral history by Greg Prato titled “Too High To Die: Meet The Meat Puppets” . You can grab hold of a copy of that book at their official website TheMeatPuppets.Com . Their also playing three US dates (1 in Ohio this writer’s trying to get to), and you can find out all about that on the the tour page of their site. And follow the band on Twitter “@TheMeatPuppets”

Jay Porks here.. I used to be a contributor on here. I\'m a little more than that now. This used to be the place I\'d go spill my rants and raves about artists and music I love and loathe. I still do that. But now I host a weekly podcast to get things off my chest, and since I have you here I\'m gonna tell you about it: Used to talk about fun things like music and pop culture, but these days it\'s all flushing the fascist crime syndicate from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and taking back our country. A hostile foreign nation installed a corrupt racist rapist fake rich criminal to power and now he holds the nuclear codes. We have a lot of work to do to fix this nation and it starts with VOTING. Sometimes we go through the music headlines of the week along with other things I feel strongly about. Like ending Cannabis Prohibition, the sad state of affairs with the tri-state area sports teams, The struggles of an anti-social mess attempting to live in a social media world.
