For the rock doc freaks, and we know you’re out there
And the list freaks, too! Stereogum just compiled their fabbo list of the 10 Best Indie Rock Docs, and We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen tops out at #1, where it belongs. Not to say the rest of the list isn’t absolutely stellar - but every time you hear the Chili Peppers, you really have D. Boon, Mike Watt and Karl Hurley to thank. No, really.
The Acoustic Blowout sessions on the bonus DVD still blow my little mind. For a taste, check out these versions of “Corona,” and “I Felt Like A Gringo.” And for even more proof that God loves a power trio - and a great introduction to this seminal awesomeness, secure yourself a copy of Double Nickels On The Dime and go to town.
Viva D. Boon, baby…
