Can you believe The Meanies are turning 30?

May 1989. It was the birth of The Meaning. Now 30 years on, Melbourne’s grunge-predecessors, will lap Australia to show how just how well they have aged.

These shows will also mark 25 years since ‘10% Weird’. The album became a document of Melbourne’s pub scene of the early 90s.

The Meanies split in 1996 only to reform in 1998 for some shows. They toured again in 2006 off the back of the release of the DVD, The Meanies: A Seminal Australian Punk Tale.

In 2015 The Meanies released a third album ‘Its Not Me Its You’.
