Every show gives another nugget that was completely new to me, which makes this podcast very valuable to me, as I've been a huge Minutemen/Mike Watt fan since the great Double Nickels album, It's big fun to listen to Watt spiel. He's all over the map, talking about the old days and his myriad recent collaborations and gigs. He's usually personal, and occasionally emotional. Always real life. It's great getting other insights into the man simply by listening to the tunes he choses to play. Always a lot of Coltrane.
Nitpicking: I wish to God Watt's voice was louder on these podcasts. I'm endlessly fiddling with the volume when I listen, which is a major drag when listening while driving, as I do. Note to Brother Matt- I mainly listen to hear Mike Watt speak, so turn him up! Also, I could absolutely do without the Moon Over Morocco stuff. Nearly a third of the podcast for that? Gimme more Watt! Fix these, and this is a five-star pick, easy.
