Interviews: Mike Watt (Il Sogno Del Marinaio)

Posted by johng (g+) on Monday, August 18, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
Image Mike Watt, the legendary bass player who created helped create a new form of spontaneous, twisting, hyper-short punk rock with The Minutemen, the man who challenged the format of music itself with the bass duo Dos, the man who held his own on stage with the punk godafathers The Stooges for almost 10 years, is currently in the role of a student.

In the group Il Sogno Del Marinaio, Watt is joined by drummer Andrea Belfi and guitarist Stefano Pillia where they snap out raw, organic and sometimes improvisational tunes in Italian and English. They're about to release their second album, Canto Secondo which was recorded in eight days. The rapid nature of the project is clear on the recording -- the band zigs when you expect them to zag and surprisingly, at times, Watt, despite being a punk rock legend, steps out of the spotlight to support his two band mates.

Because the new album is out soon, features editor John Gentile spoke to all three members about the new album, what the ocean means to them and the Minutemen.

Image Well, 1994 week is over and we are back to hitting you with the newer stuff. In completely unrelated news, the mighty Oderus Urungus has been cremated. It's a sad day, but, I suppose, one ripe with promise. Oderus shall never be replaced, but his progeny continues to thrive, and this is good. I suppose that it's time we stop mourning and move onward. HAIL THE INTER-GALACTIC CONQUEROR! Fly onward, sweet Scumdog.
