Tim Irwin - We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen (2005)

Description: "WE JAM ECONO - THE STORY OF THE MINUTEMEN is the acclaimed documentary on the too-brief life of one of the most revered, intriguing and inspired American bands ever. Childhood friends Mike Watt and D. Boon combined unbridled creativity and point-blank politics to make groundbreaking music that refused to be categorized as Punk. The film weaves together personal tales from Watt and drummer George Hurley with archival interview footage of the band and rare live performances. New interviews with over 50 musicians, artists and friends help tell the Minutemen story, from their humble beginnings in the harbor town of San Pedro, California, to the tragic 1985 death of D. Boon in a highway accident in the Arizona desert." - From DVD
