The documentary We Jam Econo offers a great look at the history and individuals who made up the San Pedro, California combo known as the Minutemen. Also worthy of note for Minutemen knowledge is the chapter devoted to them in Michael Azerrads' Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991 and Michael T. Fournier's 33 1/3 - Minutemen's Double Nickels on the Dime - a wonderfully thorough examination of their classic double album released on SST Records in 1984.
This is a stripped down, re-worked and re-edited version of a blog I first posted on MySpace in August of 2008, now highlighting the backyard show.
