Not alone. I got turned on to that album about the same time I got into the bass and I tried to cop as many Mike Watt lines as I could figure out. It was good training! I'm awed by the breadth of grooves and styles. That eclecticism struck me a being more "punk" than a lot of other bands who claim to be. It's true individualism. I was going to school in Long Beach when they formed and I suppose if I had been hip enough I might have caught them or any number of bands on the scene, but by the time I had the pleasure of seeing Watt live, he was playing with fIREHOSE, and then one time later when he put out a solo album. His personage impresses me as much as his playing.
