Emerging from the South London community which spawned The Fat White Family and Warmduscher, Meatraffle’s grooving cocktail of dubby bass lines, electro-rock rhythms and trumpet breaks soundtrack songs which veer between the heartfelt, the acidic and the comic. The band have played sessions for Marc Riley on BBC 6 and Steve Lamacq played tracks from last year’s Base & Superstructure LP six times.

reviews for Base & Superstructure LP:

“they tickle all my dopamine receptors with their scuzzy, sardonic charm” LOUDER THAN WAR

“It’s funny as fuck, but deadly serious. Dub basslines, wonky dance grooves and triumphant brass combine to fantastic effect…. Revolutionary socialism never sounded so appealing  5/5” NARC MAGAZINE

“like Bowie in an alternative universe RICK ASTLEY BBC6 ROUNDTABLE

” a pop-tastic delight, seasoned liberally with Zsa Zsa Sapien’s sweet trumpet lines and world weary musings. They, and all the other names the album calls to mind (Pulp, New Order, Happy Mondays, Human League, The Fall, Altered Images, Ian Dury, Sleaford Mods) belong to a long tradition of forward thinking working class pop” ECHOES AND DUST

“Biting satire from the searing to hilarious in this catchy, fun album of electro-pop with added trumpet. Packed with toe-tapping melodies and caustic, killer lines” SONG BAR

” Like many of the great British artists they channel (Ian Dury, PIL) the record is full of humour… A boot up the arse of the largely apolitical British music scene” MORNING STAR

“a mix of DIY pop and attitude, with moments of psychedelia and mariachi horns in the breaks which really make it come alive” ELECTRONIC SOUND MAGAZINE
