This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Fugazi September 24, 2011

trackback

Fugazi one of Washington DCs finest.
When I first got into them, it was unlikely that you’d hear Fugazi on the radio, so literally every album was bought blind. I’d buy the LP in town, get the bus home and rush in to put it on the record player and wait the few seconds for the needle to hit the first grooves. Invariably I was exhilarated by the rush of rhythm and noise. Saw them live on a number of occasions in the SFX and their shows were brilliant.
Their records and CDS still get a regular airing at home, although they are not quite everyone’s cup of tea.
As a band they were known for their DIY ethic, their concert tickets were cheap, records (LP,CDs ) were low cost too. They are currently on an indefinite hiatus.

Great stuff… I remember precisely what you refer to in your comment about buying albums blind… it made it more hit and miss but somehow a lot more compelling.

If anyone enjoys the above and wants more then it’s worth having a look at a full length documentary film made about them called ‘Instrument’. It’s mostly live performances and is totally savage. http://stagevu.com/video/vxqbfehywuor
