    Seems that Mike Watt’s new record is finished as well:

    From Mike Watt’s Hootpage:

    Quote:
    this record I just finished, "the secondman’s middle stand" looks like it’ll be coming out april 27 on columbia. pete, jer and petra did such a great job – I’m so proud and honored to be on that w/them.

    Update from the news section of Mike Watt’s Hootpage.com:

    april 2, 2004

    folks, things have come up that are gonna delay things some here from watt-land. the first thing is about the "the secondman’s middle stand" album – it’s now gonna come out in the summer, probably in the middle of august. there just wasn’t enough time to get things together enough – like my product manager (who I respect much), peter fletcher, said: "it’s been a while since your last record and we should set this up right" and I couldn’t agree more. it’ll come out through a columbia label called red ink records which will help too, keeping things closer to the iron. all my columbia people will still be on board and helping me out so there’s nothing different about that. one change though due to the record coming out later is me holding the upcoming tour off ’till the beginning of september and going nine weeks, a full-on u.s. one and not a little four weeker like what was planned to start at the end of this month. all and all, it’s a much better plan and I hope no one’s too disappointed by these changes. like orson wells said, "no wine before its time." amen.

    Maybe with 9 weeks, he’ll be able to come through Florida, preferably my town (he’s usually stopped in Tallahassee in the past anyway). 8)

    Watt said in a interview that when he was in high school one of the most popular bands was Return To Forever,maybe he picked that cover to be tongue in cheek or did`nt think about the similarity…

    Cool interview with Mike Watt (from Northbay.com)
    It even includes some cooking tips:

    Quote:
    Q: What’s that sound? Are you washing dishes?

    A: I’m cooking chicken and the grease is splattering everywhere.

    Q: What kind of chicken?

    A: A boneless chicken breast.

    Q: What are you going to do with it?

    A: I’m cooking it in olive oil and then when it gets about three-quarters done I’ll put in the chickpeas, cauliflower, broccoli and kidney beans. And when you cook it like this you can also eat it out of the pan so it’s only one thing you gotta wash.

    8) :lol:
