techno and few other intelligent things

“Fucked Up, Got Ambushed, Zipped In [into a body bag]”. read it FUGAZI.

long time favourite band: FUGAZI.
Formed in 1987 in Washington, D.C. from the ashes of HC-punk band Minor Threat, till today they released 7 album, all of them are great and innovative.


The band always embraced the DIY ethic, keeping low prices for gigs and albums. this is why the band is self managed and releases the albums through Dischord Records (Ian MacKaye one of the singer, is also the boss at Dischord).

four members: Guy Picciotto,Ian MacKaye, Joe Lally and Brendan Canty. it’s said they were the band that brought punk and hardcore to the post-rock genre (or Post-Hardcore). ppl argue that post-hardcore is born with the Minutemen few years before, but who cares…FUGAZI are genius blending noise, hc, melodies and solid groove.

this is Exit Only (from Steady Diet of Nothing, 1991) played Live in 1993.

and this is Epic Problem form their (last) ep called Argument. I had a roomate who would do his pushups (hundreds of) with this album and he became strong as superman.

also, every FUGAZI’s record contains an instrumental tracks and this one is my fav from the RED MEDICINE album. It’s called Combination Locker.

last track for you is Dear Justice Letter still form Steady Diet of Nothing.

  1. Repeater and In On The Killtaker remain two of the best punk albums of all time. I can’t beleive it is 25 years since Repeater came out.
