The Meat Puppets (Jaime Butler)

The hardcore-turned-"cowpunk" band The Meat Puppets have been around since the 1980's and just this year put out its 14th album, Rat Farm. But no rock band goes through a 30-year period without its share of ups and downs, and The Meat Puppets is no exception. 

Before Soundcheck co-presents the Meat Puppets at Brooklyn Bowl this weekend as part of the CBGB Music and Film Festival, host John Schaefer talks with the band's founding members -- brothers Curt Kirkwood and Cris Kirkwood -- about their punk roots and the drug-fueled ten-year hiatus that almost broke up the band for good.

You closed this show with the question: What kind of music do dogs find relaxing?
Without doing any research, and based only on my understanding of the universe, I'm guessing that it's music with a beat that is similar to a dog's resting heartbeat.
