Bassist Mike Watt is the living embodiment of the punk rock spirit.
As a founding member of the highly influential 80's SST records band The Minutemen, he created one of the most important bodies of work in the American underground canon, delivering adventurous, fiercely polemical music informed by such disparate traditions as funk, folk, and free jazz. Although his subsequent material -- most notably his records with the trio fIREHOSE, as well as his latter-day solo efforts -- lacked the sheer impact of his earliest outings, Watt remained true to the D.I.Y. ethos that originally inspired him, emerging as one of the most highly respected figures in contemporary music.
Check out his new project "il sogno del marinaio" accompanied by a new self released album !
