Meg are Lo-Fi Electro Indie Rock Pop from Kidderminster of all places. Now 5 years young and still containing all original members, Rob Geraghty (guitar/vocals) and Matt Pimm (keyboards/guitars), Tom Games (drums) and Allan Thombs (bass) – all improved and well seasoned from years of gigging. Meg are named after a much loved but somewhat irritating black cat.
Meg’s sound has been described as “Sounding like a cross between Grandaddy and Pavement with analogue keyboards creating a Pac Man fighting Weezer over a Lo-Fi groove”. Meg draw on influences from a weird collection of bands ranging from the mainstream to the obscure and have fashioned a sound that Pete (from And What Will Be Left Of Them?) described in the NME as 'playing music at a slight tangent to the universe'.
Meg were approached by Gavin Monaghan (John Peel Sessions/Idlewild/Mercury Rev/Babes In Toyland) of Magic Garden Studios to record their first demo after watching one of their legendary live shows. The Meg live experience has seen them play from Lancaster University, Aberystwyth University, Bristol and across to the Camden Underworld in London supporting Quasi, Jarcrew & Grandscope among others on the way.
Meg have finished recording 2 EP’s the first of which You’re The Teacher was released at Meg’s 5th birthday party in late 2006. The title track was edited, mixed and mastered by Andy Taylor (Editors, King Adora, Miss Black America). The second EP, Lego Hair EP will be released later this year.
‘I don't know of another band that are quite like Meg. Meg take their time, they like to get things just right - perfectionists and innovators, Meg don't always do what you'd expect them to! I'm shocked, hooked and reeled in now; superb stuff’ Rating : 10. Toxic Pete’s Music Reviews
’So brilliantly indie that it's almost painful. Layers and layers of loud guitars, topped off with some pleasant keyboarding and quiet-loud-quiet-LOUD tunes in true corduroy-flares fashion. Still, Meg certainly are different from pretty much anything you might have heard before. Diehard indie-kids, you're gonna love them. Actually, doesn't matter if you aren't, you just might love them, anyway!’ Miuzik E-Zine
