Punk Rock Royalty returns to The Artist
Connection Podcast! Mike Watt first joined me on the show way back
in Episode 17. Three years later finds him here again, and I
couldn't be more excited! It was great to catch up with him. I have
been a fan for so many years, and have followed his career through
Minutemen, Firehose, dos, solo records, The Stooges, Missingmen,
Secondmen, and now his latest three piece "il sogno
del marinaio". They just released their second album called
"Canto Secondo" and will hit the road for a 53 date tour in the US.
This episode also serves as a musical tribute to Mike's music over
the years. I am featuring songs from Minutemen's 1984 release
"Double Nickels on the Dime, a solo track from "Ball-Hog or Tug
Boat?" (with some VERY special guests), and two brand new songs
from the latest album. These tracks barely scratch the
surface of his musical output, but they are among my
favorites. After you listen, please do some exploring of your own.
You can start at www.mikewatt.com. The 2014 tour dates can also be found
there. I plan on attending the Philadelphia show, and can't wait!
If you reach out, please tell Mike that you heard him here.
