the only mainstream alt-rock band to ever claim The Minutemen as an influence who actually sound like The Minutemen

Do Primus claim the Minutemen as an influence? (Not saying they necessarily sound like them, but I can imagine them sounding at least as much like them sometimes as Sublime do sometimes.)

I was the biggest Primus stan from 1993-1999 and I've never heard them mention it.

Whiney G. Weingarten, Monday, 4 May 2009 19:42 (4 years ago) Permalink

geographically speaking, i'd imagine that any punk band from Long Beach at that time would be at least aware, if not really into, the minutemen.

as for sublime actually sounding like the minutemen, ummmm ...

It would actually make sense though with the whole repping your nowheresville California town and its inhabitants in lyrics all day (Minutemen, San Pedro; Primus, El Sobrante)

I have guitar world from 96(?) that has a joint interview w/Claypool & Watt. IIRC, they spend a lot of time praising each other.

i'm not good w/ song titles but there are some where Nowell is totally doing some D. Boon-style blurting and abrupt soloing and the rhythm section does little tempo changes.

do they sound more like minutemen than red hot chili peppers?

Philip Nunez, Monday, 4 May 2009 19:47 (4 years ago) Permalink

point isn't that Sublime sounded totally like the Minutemen 24/7, just that they showed the influence more overtly than, say, anyone else who was talking them up in the mid-90s or appearing on Ball Hog Or Tugboat?

xpost - yes they do

cumlord millionaire (some dude), Monday, 4 May 2009 19:48 (4 years ago) Permalink

don't think i bought any. my brother did and i would steal his all the time tho. tbh i think their singles are all pretty awful (save 'doin time') but esp. on the first album it's some pretty decent ska. i never listen to them but i don't hate hate 'em. i pretty much have no interest in hearing the s/t ever again tho

mark cl, Monday, 4 May 2009 19:54 (4 years ago) Permalink

i gotta give them credit for being the only mainstream alt-rock band to ever claim The Minutemen as an influence who actually sound like The Minutemen.

That's really funny. I enjoy a ton of '80s SST and indie/punk stuff but actually have never liked/enjoyed the Minutemen. Why? Back in college, I played Double Nickels and for some reason it reminded me of Sublime et al.

Maybe I wasn't far off base, if I'm not the only one to notice...

they were the biggest band in the world in the South Bay circa 1996. it was terrible. actually come to think of it, they might still be the biggest band in the South Bay to this day.

It's just a case of their big hits being super annoying (and unfortunately briefly omnipresent.) Also hating dudes wearing cargo shorts.

do you think they ever played around for a few months as "date rape: a tribute to sublime" or "caress me down: a tribute to sublime"?

Hate to say that Minuteman were (along with the Gang of Four) one of the biggest influences on that mess.

Gang Of Four was a big influence on the Peps.

RHCP didn't become unforgivably retarded until 1996! They have like an 11-year span of greatness before becoming a hollow self-parody.

No, I mean, RHCP lyris have always been ridiculous

But compare

Can feel the pulse beat of the earth
And like my dolphin swims so free
The sun does swim into the sea

Make a fist and fight
Not to your death
And not to your grave
I'm talking about that freedom
Fight like a brave

Although I despise them Sublime is one of the bands I think most about. They were unavoidable growing up in the late 90s in Southern California and informed so much of my high school/formative life experiences. I never owned their records but they were ubiquitous at the time.
