Minutemen Joy EP on 7" Vinyl
The influential working-man's punk/rock/jazz trio Minutemen was formed in San Pedro, California in 1980 by D. Boon (guitar/vocals), Mike Watt (bass/vocals), and George Hurley (drums). The band went on to release four full-lengths and a series of EPs before D. Boon's death in an automobile accident in 1985. Watt and Hurley would go on to form fIREHOSE.
Originally issued on the Minutemen's own New Alliacne Records label in 1981 between the release of the band's debut EP Paranoid Time (1980) and their debut full-length The Punch Line (1981), Joy is a 3-song EP produced by Mike Patton and featuring the tracks "Joy," "Black Sheep" and "More Joy." After purchasing New Alliance Records from Watt and securing their back catalog, Greg Ginn's SST Records reissued the Joy EP in 1987.
