M.E.A.N. – or Middle Earth All Nighters – are a psychedelic rock outfit from Antwerp with a penchant for odd and original song titles like Ode To The One Euro Lasagna and The Padre Song. We met them when they supported fellow Belgians Recorders at Leuven’s STUK, replete in monk costumes, and we equipped them with one of our nifty throwaways. The result is an album full of fun evening frolics, encounters with dogs and tabletop football. And if this leaves you thirsty for more and you think you’d like to see the crazy outfit live on stage, make sure to catch them at the release of The Word Magazine’s next issue, The third rate edition.
