Dos: Dos y Dos

Don Snowden, Rock's Backpages, August 2014

NO SURPRISE to anyone that Mike Watt's hard-working man advocacy for the brotherhood of the bass has placed him and his trusty thunderstick (one back-in-the-day Watt coinage) in a constantly shifting series of musical contexts from Stooges reunion tours to his own Missing Men. But even given my own preference for improv-based units with players like Nels Cline in one-or-two-off ensembles like Banyan, the one Watt group I always welcome new music from is Dos, his very sporadic duo/dual bass collaboration with Kira Roessler that slips a CD out once every blue moon or so.
