This is great. Legendary punk bassist Mike Watt is keeping a rehearsal/recording diary, or as he calls it, “a word’s-eye view from mike watt of the stooges recording their first full studio album in thrityfour years!” They’re recording with Steve Albini at Electrical here in Chicago.
It’s wild how anxious and insecure Watt is about working with his heroes: “I’m really looking to all these guys for direction cuz I don’t wanna fuck up and know in my mind I want it to be all about them w/me as far as removed as ego could be. obviously it’s about me be insecure but I also want ron to know I’ll play anything he wants to.”
