fIREHOSE

Firehose (typically rendered by the band as fIREHOSE) was an alternative rock band consisting of Mike Watt (bass, vocals), Ed Crawford (guitar, vocals), and George Hurley (drums).

The name of the band was taken from a line in a Bob Dylan song, "Subterranean Homesick Blues" : "...Better stay away from those that carry around a fire hose..." Firehose released five full-length albums and two EPs before disbanding in 1994. Inclusion of early material in several key skateboarding videos from the late 1980s led to a sizeable underground skateboarding audience.
