Interview by Parisa Eshrati
Since rejoining the group in 2019, original Meat Puppets drummer Derrick Bostrom has been drawn back into the improvisational energy of the band. "The pull of the music for me is when you can get to a place where you’re not making the decisions. Rather, the music itself is making the decisions."
We caught up with Derrick during the Meat Puppets recent co-headlining tour with Mudhoney to talk about the magic of improvisational music, the group's evolution from a trio to an ensemble, the rise and fall of SST Records, and so much more.
