After four years of delays, I'm excited to announce that the book version of We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen will be published in 2011 by Akashic Books, NY. You can pre-order the book through Amazon.
This project has been a labour of love for me, working as the sole editor and designer. It offers all the interviews conducted for the documentary, including those that didn't make it into the final cut. The contributors include Thurston Moore, Henry Rollins, Ian MacKaye, Richard Hell, Lee Ranaldo, Flea, and Mike Mills, amongst others. It's been a long process designing the whole book but through it all I've been inspired by the music of the Minutemen as well as Mike Watt's words of encouragement.
The book will contain 170 illustrated pages. The Minutemen lyrics are also presented for the first time in print! You can see some sample spreads from the book HERE
