From his work with The Manx and Chum Out, to his current stint with Gwar, Tommy Meehan has always been involved with bands that incorporated costumes in their performances. His newest project Squid Pissers features Meehan and his bandmates playing a chaotic style of hardcore/grind while decked out as glammed out space monsters.

I spoke with Tommy Meehan about his work as a composer for Cartoon Network, before our conversation took an unexpected digression into the later albums by Silverchair. We also discussed why he's drawn to bands with a strong visual element, and how he assembled the artists who drew comics for the latest Squid Pisser album Vaporize A Tadpole.

My thanks again to Tommy for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
