We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen Reviews

    A great documentary about a great band which whilst it can be a little repetetive, doesn't fall into the trap of lingering vicariously over D. Boon's death.

    Touching and insightful but ultimately not rock's most remarkable story.

    The Minutemen weren't favorites of mine, but this little documentary made me want to re-listen to their stuff. I liked the interviews with members of other bands like Ian Mackaye, Jello Biafra, Henry Rollins, etc.

    A beautiful tale of youth and how a group of individuals together can create such an immense effect in the world, and how one person missing from a trio can cause such a huge dent in a bands soul.

    I'm so glad I had a chance to see the Minutemen open for REM in Richmond in 1985. D Boon passed away just over two weeks later. I found this film inspiring. These guys played music the way they wanted to. Period.

    Really good documentary, even if you are not into their music. A lot of great interviews with interesting people.

    I think I'd make a pretty good D. Boon for a halloween Minuteman tribute band. As soon as find someone who can grow a haircut like George Hurley, I'll get to work.
