Mike Watt of The Minutemen Plays Live With Il Sogno del Marinaio "I always will be a Minuteman. People ask what kind of bass player I am, and yeah, I tell em I'm D. Boon's bass player" Our guest today Mike Watt is a pretty great bass player who has played for a lot of people since coming to prominence with his San Pedro, CA best friend D Boon in The Minutemen in the early 80's. That band pretty well defined LA fast and furious punk forever. Watt has been searching for as strong a connection since Boon’s untimely death in a van accident in 1985. Today we'll hear a set with Watt and his Italian band Il Sogno Del Marinaio. This three piece who have pretty impressive musical connection formed when Watt was on tour in Italy in 2009. They released their second album Canto Secondo last year. Look for a video of the band plus a free download from this session.
