Minutemen - Double Nickels On The Dime Double Nickels On The Dime
Punk New - LP SST 028 SST
Sealed 1984 2LP Gatefold (Black Vinyl, We Believe). "Double Nickels On The Dime Slaps 45 Numbers Onto Four Sides Of Vinyl. The Unifying Concept Is Driving In A Car, But The Record Is Really Held Together By The Band's Unflagging Commitment To Idiosyncrasy. The Quirky Songs Are About Michael Jackson, Minutemen History, WW III And Virtually Everything Else Under The Sun. Each Is Different And Somehow Good. With This Much Room To Work, The Minutemen Don't Attempt To Bludgeon Listeners With Lyrics, And Deliver Terse Gems Like "If We Heard Mortar Shells We'd Cuss More In Our Songs And Cut Down The Guitar Solos." – Trouserpress.Com... more details
 
Minutemen - Buzz Or Howl Under The Influence Of Heat Buzz Or Howl Under The Influence Of Heat
Punk Used - LP 016 SST
1983 Original EP With Minutemen Promo Pack. Amazing Raymond Pettibone Artwork! COH. “What Makes A Man Start Fires? Marked A Real Step Forward For The Minutemen, And While Double Nickels On The Dime Was Where The Group Would Reach Their Peak, There Were Plenty Of Signs Pointing To That Album's Diverse Brilliance On This Eight-Song EP. While "Dreams Are Free, Motherfucker!" And "The Toe Jam" Are Goofy, Noisy Throwaways (Hey, This Was A EP Sandwiched Between Albums), The Rest Of The Songs Found The Band Consolidating Their Strengths And Growing Even Tighter And More Confident. "I Felt Like A Gringo" And "Cut" Merge Funky Rhythms With A Punk Rocker's Sense Of Concision, "Self Referenced" And "The Product" Reveal How Far This Band's Writing Had Progressed Since The Punch Line, And "Little Man With A Gun In His Hand" Showed The Minutemen Could Reduce The Tempo And The Volume And Still Create Stunning Music. It's Hard To Think Of A Stronger Rhythm Section In An Independent Band In The 1980s Than Mike Watt And George Hurley, And D. Boon Was By Any Standards A Superb Guitarist, With Smarts, Style, And A Keen Sense Of How To Edit Himself. Buzz Or Howl Under The Influence Of Heat Remains A Superb Record From A Band Just Edging Into Greatness.” - Mark Deming, AMG... more details
 
Minutemen - What Makes A Man Start Fires? What Makes A Man Start Fires?
Punk Used - LP 014 SST
Stunning 1982 Original In Unplayed Condition. Great Artwork From Raymond Pettibone. “The Minutemen Had Already Come Up With A Sound As Distinctive As Anything To Come Out Of The American Punk Underground -- Lean, Fractured, And Urgent -- With Their Debut Album, 1981's The Punch Line. But On Their Second (Relatively) Long-Player, What Makes A Man Start Fires?, The Three Dudes From Pedro Opted To Slow Down Their Tempos A Bit, And Something Remarkable Happened -- The Minutemen Revealed That They Were Writing Really Great Songs, With A Remarkable Degree Of Stylistic Diversity. If You Were Looking For Three-Chord Blast, The Minutemen Were Still Capable Of Delivering, As The Opening Cut Proved (The Hyper-Anthemic "Bob Dylan Wrote Propaganda Songs"), But There Was Just As Much Churning, Minimalistic Funk As Punk Bile In Their Sound (Bassist Mike Watt And Drummer George Hurley Were Already A Strikingly Powerful And Imaginative Rhythm Section), And D. Boon's Guitar Solos Were The Work Of A Man Who Could Say A Lot Musically In A Very Short Space Of Time. Leaping With Confidence And Agility Between Loud Rants ("Split Red"), Troubled Meditations ("Plight"), And Plainspoken Addresses On The State Of The World ("Mutiny In Jonestown"), The Minutemen Were Showing A Maturity Of Vision That Far Outstripped Most Of Their Contemporaries And A Musical Intelligence That Blended A Startling Sophistication With A Street Kid's Passion For Fast-And-Loud. It Says A Lot About The Minutemen's Growth That The Punch Line Sounded Like A Great Punk Album, But A Year Later What Makes A Man Start Fires? Sounded Like A Great Album -- Period.” – Mark Deming... more details

Minutemen - Project Mersh Project Mersh
Punk Used - LP 034 SST
Stunning 1985 Six Track EP. Vinyl Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “"I Got It! We'll Have Them Write Hit Songs!" Some Nameless Record Company Executive Says In The Cover Painting To The Minutemen's 1985 EP Project Mersh, And That Joke Covers About Half Of The Record's Formula. While The Minutemen Had Been Writing More Melodic And Approachable Songs With Each Release, The Massive Barrage Of 90-To-180-Second Songs On The Epic Double Nickels On The Dime Was At Once An Embarrassment Of Riches And A Bit Much For A Casual Listener To Chew On. So For This Tongue-In-Cheek Experiment In Making A "Commercial" (Or "Mersh") Recording, D. Boon And Mike Watt Wrote A Few Actual Three-Minute-Plus Rock Tunes, Complete With Verses And Choruses And Melodic Hooks. On Top Of That, The Band Made A Game Stab At Cleaning Up Their Act In The Studio; While Hardly On The Level Of Something Bob Ezrin Or Richard Perry Would Come Up With, Project Mersh Boasts A Good Bit More Polish Than Anything The Band Had Released Up To That Point And Even Featured Horn Overdubs And Keyboards On A Few Tracks. But The Punch Line Was That The Minutemen Had Used All This Fancy Window Dressing On Songs That Weren't All That Different From What They'd Been Doing All Along -- "The Cheerleaders" And "King Of The Hill" Are Typically Intelligent, Clear-Eyed Polemics From Boon, And Watt's "Tour-Spiel" Is One Punker's Bitterly Funny Ode To Life On The Road (It Stands Comfortably Beside Their Cover Of Steppenwolf's Variation On The Same Theme, "Hey Lawdy Mama"). While The Minutemen Were A Band That Followed Their Own Creative Path From The Beginning To The End, Project Mersh Made Clear They Could Have Followed A More Easily Traveled Road And Still Made Good Music With Plenty To Say.” – Mark Deming, AMG... more details
