Chad Ubovich is already a cult figure in Los Angeles' close-knit music scene.
Previously working as bass player with Mikal Cronin and Fuzz, no less a figure than Ty Segall stepped in to record Ubovich' debut album.
Dark, crunching, profoundly lysergic material, these recordings laid the foundations for Meatbodies. Recalling the caveman stomp of Sub Pop circa '88, these fuzzed up behemoths have perfected a grinding, primordial, distortion-led soup.
The band have confirmed their debut European tour, taking their live show on the road. Two British shows are scheduled, with Meatbodies also completing a video for 'Tremmors'.
Seemingly inspired by the cult horror of (almost) the same name, the track shares early Mudhoney's fuzz fixation but takes it into paranoid yet psychedelic realms.
Check it out now.
Meatbodies are set to play the following shows:
2 Leeds Brudenell Social Club
3 London Birthdays
