The Minutemen Documentary

Published: 2003-12-23
The 80's rock group The Minutemen have not played since 1985 when singer and guitar player D. Boon was killed in an auto accident. But thanks to filmmakers Tim Irwin and Keith Schieron old fans and a new generation of music fans will get to see the band. "We Jam Econo" is a documentary film about The Minutemen that the filmmakers hope to release next summer.

The title for the film was created by bass player Mike Watt. The Minutemen packed and loaded their own gear. They were a blue collar band who didn't mind a little extra work. Watt still packs and loads his own gear. The Minutemen was a reference to the band's economic song writing with short songs.
