fiREHOSE - fromohio

released in 1989

this was the first in many mike watt endeavors after the ending of the minutemen (singer/guitarist d. boon was killed in a van accident while on the way to arizona in 1985)

the band was started after a minuteman fan from ohio named ed crawford (who went on to play guitar and sing in fiREHOSE) found mike watt's phone number and called him saying that he wanted to form a band with him and minutemen drummer george hurley

they went on to release 5 albums (this being their third) and 2 eps before breaking up in 1994
