mp3s: The Mike Watt Played Some Covers Post
So, Mike Watt & The Missingmen played Mercury Lounge last Friday. Probably my favorite part of the set was the covers. The bands covered have certainly had a big influence on Watt. This fact was well documented in We Jam Econo. Maybe now they’ll influence you.
First up was Wire,
Then The Stooges (‘member that Mike Watt replaced Dave Alexander on The Stooges latest tour),

Finally, Blue Öyster Cult. This here is the Minutemen cover.

Can’t wait to hear the punkrockopera he is working on.
