Minuteflag was a collaboration between members of the bands Black Flag and The Minutemen. It took place in March 1985, while Black Flag was in the process of writing and recording Loose Nut at Total Access Studio in Redondo Beach, CA; the Minutemen had just completed their Project: Mersh 12" EP at the same studio the month before. The members involved initially agreed that the material recorded during the Minuteflag sessions would not be released until at least one of the bands had disbanded. The wait would prove to be sadly short; a 12" EP on SST Records came out over a year afterward, by which time The Minutemen had disbanded after the car crash death of guitarist/vocalist D. Boon; Black Flag themselves would split up later in 1986. Despite the demand for the album amongst hardcore fans of both bands, the EP has yet to be rereleased on CD by SST.
