Rut Busters?

Discussion in 'Ask Mike Watt [Archived]' started by Rev.LaBeau, Oct 1, 2003.

  1. O.K. first I've got to spiel.

    Mike Watt, thank you for providing a large portion of the "Soundtrack" to my life! minutemen - fIREHOSE - the Bootstrappers (that was an AWESOME, extremely underrated project!)
    fIREHOSE @ Univ. of AR, Fayetteville was one of those profound life changing moments that (hopefully) everyone endures. Until then I had never seen anyone attack the instrument with such ferocity and disrespect for the instrument itself yet remain in full contact with the song.
    And I've seen few since that even come close.
    Thank you for showing me a new way.

    Now for the ?.

    What kind of rut-busters do you use; how do YOU keep it fresh?

    Thanks again for STOMPING all over it!

    Something that you would do to lift yourself out of a slump.
    Maybe slump isn't the correct term..............

    What gets your creative juices flowin'?
