Dos is really a curious yet interesting two times bass guitar part task for Mike Watt (from the Minutemen and fIREHOSE) and his past wife, Kira Roessler (from Dark Flag). Formed mainly because a vehicle to consider the bass beyond its recognized background part and in to the forefront of the music group, Dos (called for the Spanish “two,” not really some operating-system) also became a restorative experience within the wake of Roessler’s departure from Dark Flag and, even more tragically, Minutemen D. Boon’s unexpected death on Dec 22, 1985. After fully exchanging demos for the better section of 1986 (Roessler acquired transferred to Connecticut), the duo reconvened to record their self-titled debut past due in the entire year, eventually launching it on Watt’s very own New Alliance Information. Because it continuing to share interest using the pair’s a great many other musical problems, Dos have performed a sporadic touring (essentially when Roessler sometimes flew directly into open go for fIREHOSE schedules) and unhurried documenting schedule. These possess included 1989’s Numero Dos EP, a 7″ one known as The Bob Lawton EP for Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Tranquility label in 1991, another LP, Justamente Tres, released a complete decade following the initial. Despite such infrequent activity, it ought to be observed that Dos has end up being the longest-running music group task of Watt’s profession, along with the primary one in Roessler’s.
