The Minutemen's Double Nickels on the Dime / Edition 1

The story of the Minutemen has been told before (Our Band Could Be Your Life, We Jam Econo), but this book focuses purely on their music - the punk ethic and the remarkable, enduring songs that comprise this, their greatest achievement. Including extensive interviews with Mike Watt and many others close to and inspired by the band, this is a great tribute to a classic piece of American underground music.

Included are extensive interviews with Mike Watt, the band's bass player, as well as interviews with several artists, musicians, studio owners, and fanzine writers who have been devoted followers of the band for years.

Poorly written, uninteresting, unenlightening, and this is one of my all-time favorite albums. The amateurish, fanboy text is not helped by a poor digital transfer that turns into another language halfway through.
