25 years is a long time for anything to last really but especially a punk rock band in this uncertain world of music. The Meanies have somehow weathered many a storm to still be not only around but being more relevant now than ever before. Link and Ringo kicked it all off with DD and VB back in 1989. A handful of pub gigs later, tongues were wagging about this maniacal front man backed by a bunch of hairy reprobates. Six months in and VB decided to follow another dream so Kinky stepped up to the plate on bass duties. Thankfully that stage moniker didn’t stick and his usual nickname of Wally was enough. There was a short break between 1996 & 1998, but ever since then, they have been motoring along at a slow but steady pace. The sad departure from this mortal coil by guitarists DD and later TAS has meant that third guitarist JAWS is now driving the six string bus. So with that, The Meanies announce their ‘Silver Jubilee Tour – 25 Years Young & Relevant…‘ Tym Records are joining the party offering, remastered on limited edition wax, the re-issue of the ‘Never / Steve Sex God / Sorry ‘Bout The Violence‘ 7″ on glorious coloured vinyl with the original artwork and insert.
