Unfortunately, I have had no exposure (that I recall) to Mike Watt's music. I have read fantastic things about Mr. Watt, Firehose, and The Minutemen. I have been meaning to check this stuff out based on reputation but haven't yet. I have pretty broad taste in music. I recently was talking with a musician about starting a project that combines elements of Southern Rock / Country / and older heavy music - specifically Black Sabbath and we're thinking that while it sounds like a strange mix of styles, we think we can blend elements from these influences as they are all really blues based music. I am now more interested in ever in hearing how Mike Watt blends different styles in his music. I have heard the Minute Men's album title "Double Nickels on the Dime" mentioned in a few posts on this site and I thought that was a really clever album title so I was going to start there - but my local music store didn't have that album but had several other Minutemen albums. I bought one (about an hour ago - haven't listened to it yet) ..I don't recall the title, but it was from about 1984 (I think) Please recommend some of Mr. Watt's work, particularly albums that are good examples of Watt's ability to blend different influences into his music. Thanks.
