Mike Watt is one of the best bassists around, with a resume that includes the Minutemen, fIREHOSE, and the Stooges, among many others. Raymond Pettibon is an award winning visual artist and one of the most prominent cover artists around. Together they are Sock-Tight, a band from the past for the future. Two friends with different working and communication patterns, united in the belief that culture and art are meant to be a social act and in the hands of all people. Sock-Tight is a psychedelic-inspired no-wave-mania which brings together the lyrical mantra of Raymond Pettibon, the bass of Mike Watt, the saxophone vision of the early Stooges as well as a lot more dark alley thoughts and sounds from America. Second Wind is a limited edition 7” made exclusively for Record Store Day 2018. The recordings feature Dirk Vandenberg on drums, and a different sax player for each track; Alex Zhang Hungtai, Vince Meghrouni, and Ulises Bella. The gatefold jacket features artwork from Raymon Pettibon.
