Biography

Minutemen were an American punk rock band formed in San Pedro, California, in 1980. Composed of guitarist/vocalist D. Boon, bassist/vocalist Mike Watt, and drummer George Hurley, Minutemen recorded four albums and eight EPs before Boon’s death in an automobile accident in 1985; after Boon’s death, the band broke up. They were noted in the California punk community for a philosophy of “jamming econo”–a sense of thriftiness reflected in their touring and presentation–while their eclectic and experimental attitude was instrumental in pioneering alternative rock and post-hardcore.
