Just got my in the mail a couple days ago. This was a great flick with lots of commentary from many of my favorites from the indie punk scene like Ian MacKaye, Curt Kirkwood, Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, Joe Baiza, and yeah Flea too. I got choked up at the end when they talked about the day D died. I almost felt like I knew D after watching the movie. I was too young to get into the Minutemen when they were around. I got into them by hearing fIREHOSE and having people say, "Well, if you like fIREHOSE, check out the Minutemen!"
Lots of great live footage, especially the second disk. It amazes me how anyone had the guts to get up and play in front of some of those ******* 'punk' fans spitting at them and heckling. Talk about a tough crowd!
I would sure love to see Watt and Hurley work on some more original stuff together. They were the tightest rhythm section in punk and just about any other genre for that matter.
