Fugazi
Fugazi

Fugazi was the debut EP from soon-to-be-pretty-legendary post-hardcore lot Fugazi. It contained seven songs (and was sometimes known as '7 Songs') including Waiting Room which became one of their most well known songs after it was covered by Red Hot Chilli Peppers. They went on to make perhaps more well rounded records but Fugazi marked the beginning of their distinctive and uncompromising music. 

Fugazi
The Argument

What makes you laugh? Arguments. So said Brian Wilson but there's nothing funny about Fugazi's final album The Argument released way back in 2001. It was, says leader Ian Mackaye an anti war manifesto but here the post hardcore band added cello and strings into their sound for what was received as one of their best albums. They went on hiatus in 2003 never to return but this stands up as one of their greatest statements.   

Fugazi
First Demo

Fugazi are now lauded as one of the most influential punk bands of all time, both for their contributions to the lineage of hardcore (continuing what Minor Threat started with a little more "post" in the mix for the new era) and for their political standpoints, uncompromising live shows and complete autonomy. 'First Demo', though, charts Ian MacKaye's band before they'd really gotten it together, only a handful of shows in to their inception and without knowing what they sounded like on tape. This reissue takes us back to that turning point in punk rock; there's even "Turn Off Your Gun", an extra, unreleased track from the same sessions thrown in. 

Fugazi
Instrument

Many Fugazi fans know and love the Instrument documentary. Filmed in the run-up to the band’s 1995 LP Red Medicine, the movie busts a few myths about the band and features some cracking footage to boot. It goes without saying that Instrument has got some great songs in it too. Those tunes are collected here on this new eighteen-track release.

The Messthetics
The Messthetics

What happens when you take the rhythm section out of Fugazi and add a jazz guy? Something like the Messthetics I imagine.  Here's nine songs they recorded in their practice space, semi structured with lots of room for improvisation. Simple guitar, bass, drums set up explored by some of the finest players in the biz.  

Fugazi
Repeater

Their second record and first studio proper, Repeater continued the life of post-hardcore giants Fugazi, taking the hallmarks of hardcore bands such as Gang of Four and, you know, Minor Threat, and updating them into a new bizarre style. Still more punk than poetics, Repeater speaks to that early time in Fugazi's career when anger dictated all.

Fugazi
In On The Killtaker

In On The Kill Taker is one of Fugazi's most shamefully overlooked works, too straightforward to appease their later fans and not punx enough to piss off a hardcore kid the way they like it. What you get instead is a furious dance: some of the band's catchiest cuts, including "Public Witness Programme", along with the usual gleeful fury.

Fugazi
Instrument & Extras

Interlaced with the band's lyrical manifestos, footage of the band performing live (and heckling dickheads in their crowd), plus extensive shots of Ian MacKaye wearing a variety of fabulous hats, Instrument explains and traces the history of Fugazi and their place in hardcore's timeline. The atmosphere is tense and exciting, but dour and troubling -- kinda like their music.
