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,
Downloadables: Three Girl Rhumba (mp3) and Ex Lion Tamer (mp3)
(a quick aside: definitely listen to the live recording of The Missingmen performing Ex Lion Tamer over @ their myspace)
Then The Stooges (‘member that Mike Watt replaced Dave Alexander on The Stooges latest tour),
Downloadable: Fun House (mp3)
Finally, Blue Ã–yster Cult. This here is the Minutemen cover.

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