I saw them on the Slip It In tour, one of the most intense shows I’ve ever witnessed.
EDIT: That was the show where I went into the mosh pit wearing two mustard colored Chuck Taylors and when I came out one was missing the entire sole!
Kira is way underrated. Although I’ll always be partial to Chuck’s “chainsaw bass” in Flag, she did great work on all their stuff. Particularly Loose Nut and In My Head.
Who's got the 10 1/2 too
If anyone was wondering, the title refers to driving 55 mph from San Pedro(on the 110/Harbor freeway)to connect with Interstate 10 in downtown Los Angeles. Pedro is way at the south end of the LA basin, forming one side of the Port Of Los Angeles along with Long Beach, and very tucked away. It’s a long ride up to DT, Hollywood, the Valley, and Pasadena. Still better than the 405. That will make grown men weep.
Watt offers an expanded explanation in "We Jam Econo." Includes that it was a direct response to Sammy Hagar/VH "I can't drive 55." Check it out. His reasoning is interesting.
I listened to this again after talking about it, and Watt does some great work with double stops and harmonics in the intro and the dynamics of the whole group is fantastic.
It’s a much more jazzier take of the tune then the DNOTD version, but I thought it was worth sharing here. Also dig the harmony vocals.
Was just typing this..yes!
Well, TBH, the Thunderbird is modified too. He put in a Bart preamp with a bypass switch. But that’s the original sixties humbucker.
Ok I’m just saying it’s fairly likely he didn’t use the T-bird on the recording.
Maybe he can chime back in here and set the record straight.
And I’ll probably be wrong
The thing is, I'm certain I've seen other people suspended, but they weren't labled "inactive" ...
Yeah it was a weird moment. Midthread poof! Anyway, now we have an official reason to talk Minutemen.
Listened to both.
Double Nickels was not as good to my ears. The playing was good, but a lot of it sounded experimental and unfinished. I'm just not into experimental music. The whole tone of the lyrics was kind of dark too.
I wouldn't listen to it again, nor any earlier albums. I'm more interested in hearing Firehose.
Fair enough, everyone’s tastes are different. Well just have to agree to disagree on 3 Way and Double Nickels.
Hmm….you’re totally entitled to your opinion but I will note that I’ve never heard the words experimental or unfinished applied to DNOTD. Sure, there are the car jams and a couple of kinda experimental tunes, but 90% of the (double) record is tight as heck. Probably one of the big reasons it’s my favorite album ever and on Rolling Stone’s top 500 of all time. I guess you’re saying it’s not for you. That’s cool…
My understanding is that "inactive" is a fairly recently implemented euphemism for "banned."
I'm more into traditional pop, rather than experimental music.
But the minutemen are not experimental music. They are also not pop.
