THE MEICES
A HISTORICAL DOCUMENT
AUDIO HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SATANIC LUNAR LANDING MISSION

San Francisco's mighty mighty Meices give up the ghost with glory, but not much fanfare, leaving us with this fabulous farewell on limited white vinyl.  During their stay on planet Earth, The Meices served as fodder for Beavis and Butt-Head, inspiration for Matty Luv in the days of Hickey, and commissionaires for punk, garage and beyond.

A-side is an exclusive studio recording by Gil Norton (who also produced The Meices' final LP and a handful of Pixies records, among other things)...maybe from the same sessions as their last album, so why it was left off in favor of material that wasn't nearly this rad probably has something to do with major labels being stupid.  The swan song is a live version of "Lettuce Is Far Out" (original version appears on their epic Tastes Like Chicken LP) that captures the trio in full spacey, slurry goodness.
