WE JAM ECONO, THE MOVIE....An underground movement that was once thought so far below the mainstream radar as to be impenetrable, the 1980s American rock/punk underground has lately inspired a ton of media attention and revisionism. Nothing wrong there, and nothing wrong with the upcoming documentary on THE MINUTEMEN called "We Jam Econo", due out Summer of 2004. How about that? Combine that with an upcoming JANDEK documentary, the "Hamburger Martyrs: The Story of Killdozer" film, the "Total Nardcore: The Rise and Fall of Mystic Records" doc and other ephemera floating to the top, and I think it's fair to say that this scene is now ripe for the pickin'. I'll meet you in Telluride for the Minutemen film.
