fIREHOSE

In 1985, after D Boon's tragic death at age 27 signalled the end of the Minutemen, bassist Mike Watt and drummer George Hurley threw in their lot with then-22-year-old former Ohio State University student, guitar player, and Minutemen fanatic Ed Crawford to form fIREHOSE. Taking their group name from a line in Bob Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues," fIREHOSE continued in the Minutemen tradition of breathtaking musicianship combined with caustic lyrical fusillades inspired by the writing of the Beat Generation and the erect-middle-finger indignation of the Blank Generation. However, with Crawford's decidedly folkie bent insinuating itself into the mix, fIREHOSE's songs began to expand into more traditional verse-chorus-verse songwriting symmetry. And although fIREHOSE never equaled the Minutemen's output in terms of sheer audacity and emotional depth, Crawford, Watt, and Hurley recorded rock that was muscular, dense, and daring, along with being tremendously heartfelt. They never patronized audiences or comported themselves as "rock stars"; they were instead the quintessential post-punk "peoples' band." Although they achieved wider notoriety than did the Minutemen (eventually recording for a major label), fIREHOSE called it quits in early 1994 after a desultory, dispirited final LP (Mr. Machinery Operator). Still, nearly all of their recorded work stands as some of the best late-'80s/early-'90s indie rock. ~ John Dougan, Rovi

Saw fIREHOSE and Dead Milkmen. Cattle club. Sac. California. Standing directly in front of mike, watching stunning fretwork. Deaf for a week after a club for 200 has the system of a 2000 person place.
Acaste9367 is right. If'n spun tons on my record player. Then, seeing them live in Kalamazoo in '89 or so, was an awakening for us. Thanks Ed from Ohio!
I was lucky enough to see them in 1989 at the Iron Horse Cafe, North Hampton, MA. They kicked a** and were super cool. I got to hang out with Watt after ward and we had a couple of Rolling Rocks. Great band.
I saw them at Bogarts at
a place called Pacifica Marina, long gone. But they are not.

They got a Sublime vibe, wonder if Firehose heard them.
i forgot, until i saw it on here, that i have flyin the flannel lyin around somewhere on cassette. good shite, but i prefer the minutemen.
For sure, Mr. Machinery Operator was a good one
Mr. Machinery Operator is a brilliant record. One of the most underrated of the decade.

All I can say is "With the emptiness comes reality starin' me in the eye." This athiest found comfort and humor in Firehose while attending Western Michigan University.

everone knows its fIREHOSE

huh - the hose just showed up on my "slant 6" station. they should be honored.
Man, I can't express how truly amazing these guys are. Mike Watt is my hero!!
As for Paul's comment..I wouldn't take "ragin full on" out of my tape deck...
those were the days.
This band is in my blood...I was a huge Minutemen fan...I died a little myself when D. Boon passed...but God sent us a little miracle in Ed...If'n and Ragin ,Full-On are soundracks to many a teens formative years, I am sure of it.......Lon g live fIREHOSE!!!! ! ! ! ! ! !
