Reseña de álbum

When the Minutemen were forced to split up in December of 1985 due to the untimely death of singer/guitarist D. Boon, the remaining members (bassist Mike Watt and drummer George Hurley) were so devastated that they considered giving up music all together. Shortly afterwards though, a college student and major Minutemen fan, Ed Crawford, convinced the remaining members to soldier on. And soldier on they did, taking Crawford (known as "Ed fROMOHIO," due to his signature on a letter) as their new singer/guitarist, and dubbing the new outfit fIREHOSE, after the famous Bob Dylan song "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Their first album was issued less than a year after Boon's death, 1986's Ragin', Full On for SST, and surprisingly, the new band sounded completely different than it's predecessor (for example, Crawford had more of a real singing voice than Boon, the music was less unpredictable and more focused, etc.). Ex-Black Flag bassist Kira (and eventual wife of Watt) helped co-write several tracks: the hyper instrumental "Under the Influence of Meat Puppets," plus "It Matters," "Locked In," "Perfect Pairs," "Relatin' Dudes to Jazz," and "Things Could Turn Around." Other highlights included "Brave Captain," "Candle and the Flame," "Choose Any Memory," and "Caroms." While fIREHOSE would perfect their highly original sound on future albums (Flyin' the Flannel, Mr. Machinery Operator, etc.), Ragin', Full On still proved to be a worthwhile, interesting debut.

Ragin' Full-on

I lost my well-worn cassette and CD of this album some time ago, and am contemplating buying it on i-tunes. Seems funny that you might actually buy individual songs when the album as a whole is not only one of the greatest rock n' roll albums of all time but is also more of a statement about the lost generation that didn't "get" Smells Like Teen Spirit. I asked Mike Watt a couple years ago if he still played "Brave Captain", and he said yeah. Cool to hear. I sort of feel that my driving has become a little less aggressive since I stopped blasting Chemical Wire. Maybe buying this is a mistake - shouldn't Ragin' Full On be free to the interested - its kind of like the national anthem or something. There's a great story that Henry Rollins tells about their first tour with Mike Watt and how he just wouldn't shut up. I remind myself of Mike Watt sometimes, and even try to play bass from time to time. OK, Peace out, N

a highly original gem

Propelled by Mike Watt's adventurous and heavy bass playing, gear-shifting rhythm change-ups, and Ed's eccentric yet accessible vocal stylings, this album rocks in it's very own singular way. Firehose doesn't sound like anybody else, because they don't have to, damn it!

For Anyone Seriously Into Quality In Music

fIREHOSE, as an spiritual extension of the Minutemen already had my full attention. However, Watt, Hurley & Crawford rocked their own, incredibly unique sound and dedicated it all to D.Boon. fIREHOSE is one of those bands that has always stayed at the top of my playlists, along with Minutemen, Meat Pups, The Clash, Thin White Rope, Bad Brains, The Replacements, Sonic Youth... These punk and early post-punk all have in common artistic uniqueness, historical relevance and energy that is rarely matched by today's "alt/punk" acts. Get some HOSE and water your music collection with it. It's all-natural fertilizer for your soul.

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...
