"The precursor to The Minutemen. The initial idea by Craig Ibarra came to fruition in early November of 2008. The plan was to launch a record label (Water Under The Bridge) as a support base exclusively for the unpolished and unspoiled talent of the San Pedro punk community. For the label's first release, what better band can you ask for than Pedro's first punk band, the Reactionaries (with Mike Watt's permission of course). Tracks 1-10 present a restored and remastered 10-song Reactionaries practice tape that was recorded in January of 1979, featuring some of Mike Watt's first songs. Tracks 11-20 consist of the same 10 Reactionaries songs covered by 38 members of different San Pedro affiliated bands, both past and present. The CD packaging is a 6-panel digipak setup and includes a Jack Brewer (Saccharine Trust) '1979 Revisited' extra bonus track parody that is not available on the LP version. The Reactionaries: Martin Tamburovich - singing, D. Boon - guitar, Mike Watt - bass and back-up, George Hurley - drums."
