History Of The Record

The Minutemen's first record occurred almost immediately after they opened for Black Flag in the Minutemen's hometown of San Pedro, California. Black Flag guitarist Greg Ginn offered the group a chance to record and release a record, and a late night session at Media Art Studio in Hermosa Beach, California was booked. San Pedro is a community within Los Angeles, California, annexed in 1909 and a major seaport of the area. ... Hermosa Beach is a city located in Los Angeles County, California. ...


The group recorded all seven songs in the order in which they appear on the record, with no overdubbing except for backing vocals by the group and drummer George Hurley's brother Greg. At the beginning of "Joe McCarthy's Ghost", bassist Mike Watt can be heard telling guitarist D. Boon and the Hurley brothers, "You just sing 'Joe McCarthy', want to do that?". A discussion between the four participants can be heard underneath George Hurley's previously recorded drum introduction. George Hurley is a drummer best known for his work with The Minutemen and fIREHOSE. Since 1994, he has played with the Red Crayola and Tom Watson from Slovenly. ... Mike Watt Michael David Watt (b. ... D. Boon, born Dennes Dale Boon (April 1, 1958 - December 22, 1985) was guitarist and lead singer of punk rock group The Minutemen. ...


Ginn later told the Minutemen how to put out a record, which spurred Watt and Boon to form New Alliance Records later that year.

Two tracks from the EP, "Paranoid Chant" and "The Maze" appeared on the SST compilation The Blasting Concept, Vol. 1.

Trivia

  • The credit "A big thanks to Martin for passing out" is a line poking fun at longtime band friend Martin Tamburovich, who was the lead singer of a short-lived punk/new wave quartet called The Reactionaries with Boon, Watt, and Hurley, and who wrote the lyrics to "Validation".
  • Although D. Boon was the defacto lead singer of the band, ironically the first song on the first Minutemen album was sung by Mike Watt.

Roman Empire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (10664 words)
From the time of Augustus to the Fall of the Western Empire, Rome dominated Western Eurasia, comprising the majority of its population.
At the same time, a tremendous outpouring of energy in founding colonies and municipia, unrivalled in Rome before or after, succeeded in romanizing extensive territories in the East, in Africa, in Hispania and Gaul, beyond those areas that were traditionally within the Roman sphere of influence.
An eventual rebellion was expected and would happen from time to time: a general or a governor would gain the loyalty of his officers through a mixture of personal charisma, promises and simple bribes.
