Mike Watt - In the Engine Room

So we're doing some sort of nautical theme to close out the week? I can work with that. Here's the opener to legendary Dad Guitarist Mike Watt's it'll-be-recognized-as-a-landmark-album-in-30-years magnum opus Contemplating the Engine Room. If you're going to make a concept album you'd better have a damn clever concept, and Watt does, using his father's background as a Navy man as a metaphor for the life of a punk rock band.
