We Jam Econo

Our song could be your life

I saw an excellent documentary the other day, “We Jam Econo.” It was about the Minutemen. A band. If you don’t know them, what can I say about them? I remember when Steve told me they were playing at Project Space and how I would really like them. I thought, “Oh, fuck. Please. Another fucking hardcore band.” We used to make fun of that kind of shit. UMP-idda UMP-idda UMP-idda UMP-idda *kack* UMP-idda UMP-idda UMP-idda UMP-idda. No thanks, I said. Well, darn. He was right. They subsequently became one of my favorite bands. Fuck jazz. I’ve got the Minutemen.

Anyway, the guy did a masterful job. I honestly think, even if you’d never heard the Minutemen, you’d just love them after watching this movie. This is Bob Dylan to me.
