I am so predictable that you saw it coming from 13 miles away, or at least since Sunday. Fugazi is one amazing band that put out my favorite relaxation music. I have always wondered why they were labeled "hardcore", although I find this taxonomy much more satisfying than the abominable term "emo". In their unique way of allying reggae-style grooves with the alt-rock vibe that could also be claimed by Shellac, only with much catchier melodies, they turn the brain into a well rested  place. The early, pre-1991 stuff is a little more abrasive than the rest but never as raw and wild as Minor Threat, and the whole lot is an amazing sonic experience. Their monumental influence can be detected in a trillion bands like the awesome Quicksand, this is how you spot a genuine artistic achievement. I could have ripped the vinyls for the first two 12" EPs, the 3 songs 7" and Repeater, but I have better things to do than rip stuff that sounds better on CD. Just enjoy this absolute classic mountain of Fugazerism! Long live the 90s!

  1. I was lucky enough to see them on tour twice back in 1989 and 1990. The shows were recorded by locals and have been uploaded. The 1990 show is much better in quality. They both turn up on Youtube if you search Fugazi American Legion Hall Gainesville Fl. I was sitting behind the speaker stack to Mackaye's right, but you never see me (and boy did I look hard for my 25yo self).
