They took some time off after their first album, and began writing new material and songs; and then in the summer of 1982, the Minutemen would eventually find their way into the studio to make the album What Makes a Man Start Fires". This would be the most time that the band would spend on any album of theirs before it was released.

guitar solos were the work of a man who could say a lot musically in a very short space of time. It says a lot about the Minutemen's growth that The Punch Line sounded.

Reviews about Minutemen - What Makes A Man Start Fires? (2):
Kigul
So, if the basic tracks were recorded on July 3, 1982 and the guitar and vocal overdubs were done in August 1982, how the fuck was the album released in February of that same year? :)
Nikobar
It was released in early 83.
