Product description

This volume, a book version of the documentary film with the same title (both authorized by the band), chronicles the groundbreaking early-'80s punk rock band from their humble beginnings in the harbor town of San Pedro, California, to their tragic and untimely demise when lead singer and guitarist D. Boon was killed in a van accident. Filled with photos, band lyrics, concert fliers, and more juicy elements that will make fans very, very happy.Told by those who were there (including Flea, Thurston Moore, Jello Biafra, Ian MacKaye, Henry Rollins, J Mascis, and many more), "We Jam Econo" weaves together testimonials from fifty original and archival interviews to capture the dynamic energy and do-it-yourself spirit of these punk rock pioneers.
