The Master's Voice is the second album by American improvisational band Unknown Instructors. The core quartet of Mike Watt (The Minutemen, Firehose, The Stooges, Dos, Banyan), George Hurley (The Minutemen, Firehose, Red Krayola), Joe Baiza (Saccharine Trust, Universal Congress Of), and poet/saxophonist Dan McGuire reconvene on the album, with guest vocals on three tracks by David Thomas (Pere Ubu) and on another track by artist Raymond Pettibon. In addition, Watt also contributes a vocal of his own. The album was recorded at Total Access Studio in Redondo Beach, California, the same studio where Black Flag recorded many of their classic mid-80's album releases and where Watt and Hurley's The Minutemen had recorded Project: Mersh in 1985.
