LA Review of Books posts great review of Mike Watt: On and Off Bass

The LA Review of Books' Craig Hubert offers a keen and insightful review of Mike Watt: On and Off Bass in this week's edition ( Hubert notes, "[Watt] has a keen eye for capturing unexpected disruptions within seemingly normal, even mundane situations. . . Loss is prevalent throughout On and Off Bass, but it is undercut with hope; there is always the sustaining reservoir of inspiration -- from Boon, from music, from San Pedro itself -- to dip back into. It's the same reservoir that John Coltrane described in a 1966 interview with Nat Hentoff: 'There is never any end. There are always new sounds to imagine, new feelings to get at.'"
