We Jam Econo on DVD

The Minutemen documnetary We Jam Econo (which I saw and reviewed in this blog a year ago or so) is out on DVD.

While the film itself was a loving tribute to D. Boon from his former bandmate Mike Watt, it was a little slow in parts (esp. corndog Watt driving around in his old van just yapping endlessly…), but the DVD extras look to pick up the slack a bit. Check it out:
