We Jam Econo is a full-length documentary about the influential 1980s punk rock band, Minutemen, created by director Tim Irwin and producer Keith Schieron in association with Rocket Fuel Films.
The film premiered on February 25, 2005 at the historic Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, California, after two years in production. Poignant recent interviews with the band's two surviving members Mike Watt and George Hurley, as well as first-person anecdotes from notable musicians including Ian MacKaye, Flea, Henry Rollins and Thurston Moore, complement the archival concert and interview footage of the band, creating an informative and moving film for those interested in the band or punk rock in general.
The title is a lyric from their song "The Politics of Time." It's also referred to in a comment made near the end of the film by Mike Watt, in a 1985 interview, when the band is asked if they have anything else to say. He answers for them: "We jam econo." Econo was local slang for economic
and described the band's dedication to low-cost record production and touring.It also describes the band's (and burgeoning underground independent music scene's) do-it-yourself attitude and philosophy.

Personal Note: The Minutemen were THE best hardcore/punk band ever created. Absolute cream of the crop.
