Until last September, things were relatively quiet in Meat Puppets 2016 world. Then Riotfest popped up on their schedule. There are not too many “firsts” left for the Puppets to experience, but out of the blue, Curt was invited to meet with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders (!!) at Suder Montessori Magnet School in Chicago.

Suder teacher Rachel Jacobson was the match maker:

“I have put forth the idea that Curt Kirkwood is the coolest person that walks
the earth and my kids have bought in…showing up will confirm it all.”

When the kids dropped a video along with the invite,, that did it, and the band got to cut loose with the kids singing along.

Tears were had.

Following that outing, the band has started to revisit the folk and singer-song writer nuggets Curt put out in 2005 on his solo masterpiece, Snow, as well as similarly veined tracks from Rat Farm (“Sometimes Blue”).

In March 2017, the Puppets are headed back to the west coast for a two week tour.
Returning to the stage after a decade long self-imposed exile, seminal punk rock legend Chip Kinman is back. Kinman's supercharged Blues band Ford Madox Ford is reimagining Blues with the same left of center delivery that Kinman's genre busting country band, Rank and File, brought to blowing the doors off country music.

Together with guitar phenom Dewey Peek, bassist Matt Littell and drummer S. Scott Aguero, Kinman's mission is to reintroduce blues to a roots starved populous. "We are planning on doing everything; recording, touring, winning a that's the plan" states Kinman.
