Default Listen to the Minutemen

They played from 1980-1985, and they are definately the greatest punk band ever.

Well i wouldnt say hes a virtuoso, but he is really damn good, and quite original...You can hear his influence on guys like Flea and Claypool.

It's funny, Mike Watt (the bassists), was incredible in the Minutemen, but have you heard his later stuff...garbage.

His fIREHOSE and solo material along with all his other material is at least on par basswise with anything he did with the Minutemen.

exactly,he can play bass well but after hearing his later stuff its obvious D. Boon was more the creative force whereas Watt was more of a promoter and carrier of their legacy. Has anyone seen "We Jam Econo"...amazing

ive never listened to this band, but there on SST records with black flag/descendents et all, and since people are sayin there the best punk band ever, i guess i should check them out.

whats a good album to get on soulseek?
