Minutemen-0

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.

Links to Peel

Peel started playing tracks from the Minutemen in the early 80's, especially songs from the Double Nickels On The Dime album. After the group disbanded after Boon's death, Peel kept interest in Watt's and Hurley's next project, the Firehose (or fIREHOSE as they were stylised), which he played tracks quite often on his shows.
