Mike Watt interview

Alternet has a really good interview with Mike Watt--it's nice to see somebody asking Watt about his politics, which he wears on his sleeve.  He's nearly as clever with a turn of phrase as he is on the bass guitar, so it's a pleasure.
 
And there are different kinds of power. There is also the power to create, whether in the arts or elsewhere. Power isn't just about killing and bombing. And an election is not a beauty contest that we have every four years. It's not something you keep in a neat little box. I think the world is oversimplified by those who are convinced that a television can tell them everything they need to know. I have people tell me, "You have to trust your government, because they know more than we do." And I'm like, whoa, maybe it's time to go to Monticello and watch Thomas Jefferson do the rotisserie tumble in his grave.
 
Go read the whole thing.  And if you don't have Double Nickels on the Dime, for god's sake go out and buy it.  Listening to it is a great way to recover after the Reagan love-orgy. 
 
The low customer reviews for Double Nickels are pretty funny.  Yes, Virginia, there are serious dumb shits out there. 
 
OK I JUST WANT 2 NO HOW THIS MUSIC IS SUPOSED 2 BE PUNK CUZ IT AINT. THERE ARE A LOT OF SONGZ ON HERE BUT THA PROBLEM IS THEY ALL SOUND THA SAME AND THEY AINT EVEN PUNK THEY SOUND LIKE ALTRENATIVE OR SOMETHING. THIS CD'S GOT MORE SONGS THAN ANY OTHER CD I OWN BUT I STILL CANT FIND 1 SONG I LIKE ON IT. IF U PPL THINK U CAN HANDLE TRU HARDCORE PUNK THEN CHECK OUT OLD KORN AND LIMP BIZKIT P.O.D. OR STAIND.
 
I can imagine what Henry Rollins take on this kid would be....
