Double Nickels – Michael Fournier (2007)

Double Nickels book

Couldn’t resist another of the 33 and 1/3 series of books on classic albums, this time the Minutemen’s Double Nickels on the Dime by Michael T. Fournier. This one is basically a set of notes for each of the (many) songs on the 1984 double album. Fournier spoke with Mike Watt and quotes him quite a bit; see additional interview material here on Mike’s hoot page.

As Fournier says, there’s a lot to digest; some 45 songs, so many of them little gems. An album that is as strong a piece of work now as ever, 23 years later.
