In this episode: Before Soundcheck co-presents the Meat Puppets in concert as part of this week's CBGB Music and Film Festival, the founders of the alt-rock band talk about its punk roots, collaborations with Nirvana and the drug-fueled ten-year hiatus that almost broke up the band for good.

Then, the delightful indie pop duo BOY perform its big hit "Little Numbers" and more in the Soundcheck studio.

And we revisit a conversation with the director of the documentary film Beware Of Mr. Baker -- about famed and unpredictable Cream and Blind Faith drummer Ginger Baker.
