3 CUZ. 4 The Hand to Man Band. Hypnenated-man consists of 30 short songs inspired by the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. The first session for the album took place during a planned break in Watt's Spring 2009 tour, during which, in a deliberate move, only the drum and guitar tracks were completed. Watt overdubbed his vocal and bass tracks with Maimone in June 2010.
Hyphenated-Man (rendered on the cover in all lower case letters as hyphenated-man) is the fourth solo album by Mike Watt, and the first full-length recording he made under his own name since parting with Columbia Records in 2005. Initially released in Japan by Parabolica Records in October 2010, the album was released in the rest of the world on clenchedwrench, an independent record label newly founded by Watt
It sounds like Watt is using Bosch's figures to confront some hard truths, but he does so in a spry, often joyous way. That's especially impressive given how sentimental this album could've been. After Boon's passing in 1985, Watt didn't listen to the Minutemen much until the We Jam Econo documentary was made in 2005. But rather than getting him down, revisiting his past has given Watt an electric charge. While his solo work has often been inspired, on Hyphenated-Man he sounds thoroughly possessed.

Hyphenated-Man brings Mike Watt back to his earliest days in the legendary Minutemen. Only two songs here out of 30 crack the two-minute mark. Everything plays like staccato-like bursts of energy where all the emotion is flushed out in record time. Playing as a power-trio with guitarist Tom Watson and drummer Raul Morales, Watt’s musical vision is jagged but right. There is no polish anywhere. The lyrics run the gamut from pointed to surreal to silly. Sly humor and personal polemics do battle with a trio that is sharp and determined.
LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Mike Watt Mike Watt+the Missingmen Format: Vinyl. Watt's solo albums are truly different from his other work, yet you can definitely follow the thread. This album reminds me a lot of his work with Dos, because although there is a full band, his bass is so prominent in the mix, and the tunes are short and complex. It's a very challenging listen; in many ways his most "difficult" music to date, and perhaps his least commercial in a long time, but the rewards become evident if you are patient and keep listening.
Mike Watt is a guy who thinks a lot about his music; some musicians are content to come up with a dozen or so worthwhile songs, record them, and leave it at that, but each of Watt's solo efforts have been governed by some overriding concept or narrative, and while he's a man who avoids pretension at every turn, each of. his albums have been literate, challenging, and imaginative, and 2010's Hyphenated-Man is no exception.
