Minutemen - This Ain't No Picnic


Added 11 years ago


Description: Minutemen's Double Nickels on the Dime is a masterwork of American indie rock, a sprawling, 42-song explosion of terse, revolutionary rock & roll. Rifling through a kind of lurching punk-funk, this San Pedro, California, trio poses philosophical questions, mocks love-song clichés and Michael Jackson, covers CCR and Van Halen, and gets drunk on "Jesus and Tequila"--all of it brought to life by the jazzy, popping bass of Mike Watt; the rifle-shot fills of drummer George Hurley, and the staccato guitar and impassioned cries of the late D.

RS: 40 Greatest Punk Albums of All-Time (40 music items)

"Three blue-collar corn dogs from the port town of San Pedro, California, with zero pretensions and a gift for gab, and a hilarious taste for no-bullshit political analysis like the "The Roar of the Masses Could Be Farts." All over this sprawling, 45-song double-album classic, guitarist D.

100 Greatest American Albums of All Time (100 music items)

"Small-town band made punk its own The Minutemen’s fourth album had singer/guitarist D. Boon and bassist Mike Watt spitting political rants and brainy working-class yarns, while Boon’s gnarled guitar leads occupied the middle ground between funk, jazz, hardcore and John Fogerty.

500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die! (500 music items)

"The California trio’s 44-song masterpiece mixes hardcore, jazz and funk, pushing American punk a step further. Switching styles at any given moment, their deadly serious approach is leavened by pokes at Michael Jackson and Ronald Reagan. Standout track: “This Ain’t No Picnic”"
