I've blogged about singer/guitarist D. Boon before. The Minutemen are one of my favourite bands and Double Nickles on the Dime, their 45-song double-album from 1984, is permanently in my Desert Island Top 5.
I downloaded three (!) new Minutemen shows yesterday, so this Musical Off-Day will feature the eclectic San Pedro, California, trio.
I'm including one of the previously uncirculated shows here -- from The Channel in Boston on April 21, 1985. (I saw them the previous night in Providence, Rhode Island, having driven down from northern Vermont). The real gem is a college radio set from November 30, 1985, less than one month before Boon, 27, would be killed in an car accident.
