Dead Meadow's virtues have for years earned the band the benefits of working with some of the industry's more impressive names. Joe Lally (Fugazi) signed the psychedelic rock trio to his Tolatta Records label in 2000. Soon after, the band's retro sound grabbed the interest of the seemingly impossible Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre), who recorded, produced and pressed 2002's Got Live If You Want it. The band then recorded a Peel Session, becoming the first act to do so outside the BBC studios. In the years since, Dead Meadow's résumé has grown to include signing to Matador and sharing the stage with acts such as Dinosaur Jr., Blue Cheer, Sonic Youth, Black Mountain and even Yoko Ono.
