    Mike Watt has spent the past quarter century touring. Beginning with groundbreaking Californian post-punk band The Minutemen in 1980, Watt helped define the "econo-tour," a road warrior-style approach to touring that involved performing the most gigs possible in the fewest days with the lowest possible overhead. Sharing a van with SST labelmates Black Flag, the Minutemen unknowingly created the roadmap of national club routes that the budding Punk Rock Nation would later adopt as its own. After the tragic death of singer D. Boon, Watt then launched fIREHOSE in 1986, going on to create five studio albums indulging in 7 years of non-stop econo-touring (without ever taking label tour support). fIREHOSE signed to Columbia Records, who released the group's final three records before they dissolved in January 1994.

    In 1995, Columbia Records released the first Mike Watt solo album, "Ball-Hog or Tugboat?" which included members of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, the Beastie Boys, Lemonheads & Screaming Trees. In fact, the tour line-up for Watt's first solo outing included Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder on vocals, the Germ's Pat Smear on guitar, and Nirvana's Dave Grohl on drums. Watt has played bass and toured with J Mascis + the Fog & Perry Farrell's Porno for Pyros, and was also part of the Wylde Rattz with the Stooges' Ron Asheton, Mudhoney's Mark Arm, Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley covering the Stooges' classic "TV Eye" for the soundtrack to the film "Velvet Goldmine." In the last two years Watt has toured the world playing bass for the reformed Iggy & The Stooges.
