The vibrant Bath music scene has given rise to a succession of critically-acclaimed bands through the years, including STACKRIDGE, GRADUATE, THE KORGIS, and TEARS FOR FEARS. Since 1990, many of the musicians associated with those groups have led a double life as the Meanies (originally “Blue Meanies”), a carefree sideline act dedicated to celebrating classic pop and rock songs, in addition to their own musical legacies.

“The Meanies Cover Their Tracks” brings the band’s peerless musicianship and rich vocal blend to CD for the first time. James Warren (STACKRIDGE, THE KORGIS), Martyn Sheppard, John Baker, Andy Marsden,and Glenn Tommey (GRADUATE, STACKRIDGE, THE KORGIS) deliver fresh interpretations of classic tracks by favorite artists, including the Beach Boys, Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, and the Four Seasons, as well as tunes from their own catalogues, including “Ever Met a Day,” the GRADUATE song penned by Roland Orzabal pre-TEARS FOR FEARS, and a new arrangement of “Everybody’s Got to Learn Sometime,” the Top 10 international smash written and sung by James Warren in THE KORGIS.

Listen and discover why — no matter what other ventures they pursue — these talented performers keep getting together to share the joy of singing and playing the songs they love.

Reviews

...one must give credit to the band for adding such finesse to these classic tracks. This record won't change the world but it sure is a nice slice of nostalgia and I quite enjoyed the trip.

There are also a couple of Four Seasons' numbers in Who Loves You and December 1963. Kool and The Gang, The Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac and Ace are all covered, and the band also look to their own heritage with The Korgis' Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime and the Tears For Fears classic Everybody Wants to Rule the World getting the treatment. It's all very easy on the ear.
