Minutemen - Buzz or Howl Under the Influence of Heat (1983)



Oh My oh my...The Minutemen...The Fucking Minutemen...

I think I may just be out of words...Ive been in a lot of meetings lately..the kind where you just sit ther for four hours and take notes and listen to people quibbling over pennies, and watch the clock waiting for lunchtime...

Thank god for the Minutemen. Their minute long songs are perfect for remembering. That way while you sit in said meeting you can hum their tunes in their entirety. D-Boons trebly guitar cutting swaths through the mundane details of corporate life. Mike Watts thunder broom massaging your cortex into a convincing stare of deep intent. George Hurleys drum fills shooting off sparks in your mind, making you seems all the more interested and interesting...

If I am ever in a conversation with you and you are boring me, and you cant tell, its because I have Minutemen songs playing in my head. They cover for me when I just cant be there to deal with the flotsam and jetsam of life. I walk in tune to I Felt Like A Gringo. I chew in tune to Dream Told by Moto. When I sleep, I sleep to the tune of Little Man With a Gun in Your Hand....

If you think I got problems, just think of all the people who dont listen to the Minutemen.

Someone please send me What Makes a Man Start Fires.

Ooops! To be true it's the only one I don't have :(

I still have an old and worn out tape with Embrace on the other side, but I haven't managed to buy this one so far.

But I have a great idea! Let's ask proven hollow :) I suspect that he can have everything :D

Nothing more? Really?!! Well, just give me a chance ;) "From Ohio" was in fact the first album of this great band that I heard years ago, but I think the first too are really amazing.

So thanks for the tip for the next posts ;)
