the story of the minutemen
Rocket Fuel Films is proud to present
“We Jam Econo – The Story Of The Minutemen”. This feature length documentary chronicles the ground breaking, early 80’s punk rock band from their humble beginnings in the harbor town of San Pedro, CA to their tragic and untimely demise when lead signer and guitarist D. Boon was killed in a van accident in December of 1985.
Told by those who were there, “We Jam Econo – The Story Of The Minutemen” weaves in footage from over fifty newly shot interviews with archival interviews and live performances to capture the dynamic energy and do-it-yourself spirit of these punk rock pioneers.
After talking to Watt about the idea and getting his approval, we began filming in Jan. 2003. The film had it's premiere on
Feb 25, 2005 at the historic Warner Grand Theater in San Pedro, CA. Other screenings are currently being planned.
