    Mike Watt, bassist for punk rock icons Minutemen, is set to release a live album around his 1995 Ring Spiel tour. Consequence of Sound reports, "Mike Watt has enjoyed a lengthy solo career that started with the "Ring Spiel" tour back in 1995. That tour wasn't just a momentous occasion in Watt's own life; it also brought together one of the most eclectic lineups in rock history. Opening for Watt were a bunch of relative nobodies known as the Foo Fighters and a certain Eddie Vedder side-project called Hovercraft."

    … "Columbia and Legacy Recordings have announced a new live album, Ring Spiel Tour '95, recorded when that fateful tour stopped by Chicago's Metro for a night. Watt's backing band that night consisted of Vedder, Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, and William Goldsmith."

    The album is set to be released on November 11th as a 2 LP/2 CD set, and is currently available for pre-order via Amazon.
