Fugazi
The Argument

Fugazi return from a long absence with a new single and album out on the same day though am not exactly sure how intentional it was. The single (called Furniture) is classic Fugazi along the lines of Waiting Room. Top chuggy indie guitar rock. Don't really need to say much more about that. Note ...view item »

Rites Of Spring
Six Song Demo

Pretty excited about this one coming into the office. Dischord are finally treating us to a definitive official release of the mythical first demo of Guy Picciotto and Brendan Canty’s pre-Fugazi emo trailblazer...view item »

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...view item »

Red Hare
Little Acts Of Destruction

The fine tradition of D.C. hardcore appears to be in safe hands with Red Hare. Their second LP, Little Acts Of Destruction, is a bracing dash through fourteen taut, muscular punk tracks. Tracks like ‘Affirmation’ bristle with energy, packing plenty into their short run times. If you needed a seal of approval...view item »

The EFFECTS
Eyes To The Light

Est. 2014 in Washington, DC during a fight for control of the caps lock key, the EFFECTS are a trio specialising in riffy, post-punk U.S. indie. On this debut LP Eyes to the Light, the band follows a can...view item »

Lungfish
A.C.R. 1999

Lungfish are a band who never really fit into any kind of “scene”. Locking into their sensuous repeato grooves with pagan psych vibes over which Dan Higgs...view item »

Shudder To Think
Ten Spot

Shudder to Think’s 1990 LP, the first that they dropped on Dischord, is put to wax once again here. In some senses - the palm-muted rhythms, the ferocious tub-thumping, Bad Brains-y squaws of guitar - it’s classic Dischord fare. In others - the theatrical flourishes that pepper each ...view item »

Fugazi
Margin Walker

Ian MacKaye, Brendan Canty, Guy Picciotto, and Joe Lally provide one of the strongest outfits in all of rock history. Fugazi is a band that believes in the fans, it is their policy that all their shows be at an admittance of seven dollars or less, and all their albums be sold at a price of $12.99. They are really a band for the people, and Margi...view item »

Title Tracks
2 Song 7 Inch

Yowza, it's been a while since i've heard any new material from Washington DC's Dischord label (home of some of the greatest records ever made don't you know) and it seem that the agenda has changed significantly over the past few years. This Title Tracks seven is proof of that. John Davis who used to play drums in Q and not U as well as frontin...view item »

Minor Threat
Minor Threat

That familiar bald head can only mean one thing.. a repress of the first Minor Threat album! Unbelievably succinct and vicious hardcore punk, though the whole thing is only 17 minutes it has the weight of something far larger. It even accidentally created a whole lifestyle with ‘Straight Edge’, the band’s clean...view item »

Lungfish
Rainbows From Atoms

I was thinking about creating an iTunes playlist called Lunfish's best. When I do this album will be heavily represented. Aside from Mother Made Me (which is still pretty darn good), I absolutely love every song here. Instrument hits like a sledgehammer right off the bat, Abraham Lincoln showcases Daniel Higgs wonderful lyrics (and one of Asa Os...view item »

Fugazi
Red Medicine

Probably the best summation of Fugazi is said by singer Ian Mackaye "We play loud electric guitar music, and we'd hope that that doesn't mean you have to act like an asshole". It's a statement that makes sense when you put on one of their records and what better record showcases this than their 4th LP Red Medicine. K...view item »

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 tha...view item »

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 Mac...view item »

The Evens
Get Evens

The Evens' second album doesn't deviate from their debut in any way and this is a good thing. Comprised of former Minor Threat and Fugazi frontman Ian MacKaye on baritone guitar and vocals and his wife Amy Farina on drums and vocals, the Evens make surprisingly simple and melodic songs. The sparse arrangements give the songs both an intimacy and...view item »

Dag Nasty
Cold Heart / Wanting Nothing

The session that produced Cold Heart and Wanting Nothing for Dag Nasty’s new 7” saw the Washington DC band’s original lineup of Brian Baker, Shawn Brown, Roger Marbury and Colin Sears reunite in the studio for the first time since 1985. It also marks their return to the legendary Disch...view item »

Scream
Fumble

Scream-Dischord records other "stars" (see Minor Threat) come at you on this release with both barrels burnin'. "Fumble" is a downright killer...from the Bad Brains-influenced "Land Tore Down", seriously impassioned vocals by Peter Stahl on the pounding "Dying Days", the very Wo...view item »

Red Hare
Lexicon Mist

Red Hare offer a tantalising glimpse of what is to expect on their forthcoming second album with Lexicon Mist, a quick 3-track EP. Both of the band’s original tunes, as well as their cover of Lungfish’s ‘Sphere Of Influence’, are taken at full-speed, howling with energy. Featurin...view item »

Youth Brigade
Complete First Demo

Hear where it all began for Youth Brigade, way back in 1981. The notion of a Complete First Demo maybe isn’t quite so novel for a band who lasted less than a year (as opposed to long-in the tooth veterans), but it is pretty special hearing this band’s furious spark as it first existed. 7” with 8 tracks...view item »

Soccer Team
Real Lessons In Cynicism

The debut album by Soccer Team was released all of 9 years ago: now Real Lessons In Cynicism drops. Recorded in a basement, the band’s songs are a well-wrought brand of jaunty DC indie-pop. We can learn a lot from the cultural background to this record by bearing in mind that the sleeve art was originally destined...view item »

Circus Lupus was way before its time, mixing the Fall, PiL, swamp blues, punk rock and hardcore. This record is their first album, and includes their first single, with their original bassist, as the last two songs, and is not as envelope-pushing as their second, Solid Brass, but has a mor...view item »

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 P...view item »

Soul Side
Trigger / Bass-103

Here's a welcome reissue for one of the less predictable records on the Dischord roster, 1988's 'Trigger' from the pre-GVSB post-hardcore outfit Soulside. This lot mixed noisy post-punk with some hip-hop inspired mid-paced grooves a la Circus Lupus, some driving thrashy metallic bits and Dag Nasty/Bluetip-ish confrontational-pop moments....view item »

S.O.A. (State Of Alert)
First Demo 12/29/80

All the true punks already know they need this. Here's S.O.A.'s eight-song first demo on a 7", only three songs of which have been released before. S.O.A. were of course Henry "Rollins" Garfield's first band, which makes them pretty historically significant despite only playing nine shows. The music is rough'n'ready proto-hardcore punk f...view item »

Nation Of Ulysses
Plays Pretty For Baby

An entertaining band that owes its sound to a single song from Mission of Burma - "New Nails." This band is not an evolution of anything from the MacKaye circle of music -- it doesn't sound anything like Fugazi, Minor Threat, Rites of Spring, or Bad Brains. It's not a hardcore album, and it's not immediately obvious why it appears on the Dischor...view item »

Joe Lally
Why Should I Get Used To It

We all know that Joe Lally is king. His bass playing for Fugazi was the catalyst that moved Mckaye away from a potentially dodgy career of emo rock into a full on rad career of funk infused post punk-rock. Lally can play that's for sure so why, oh why are his solo albums so painfully average? I don't object to the lack of rocking out, that doesn...view item »

Medications
Completely Removed

Washing DC’s Medications 2010 album “Completely Removed” is a departure from their usual twisted rock sound having parted company with Andy Becker before recording. A clue may be in the title.

Not heard these before but apparently they've toured with labelmate Edie Sedgewick who I've very much enjoyed seeing in the past. So yeah, this job's pretty Riot Grrrl.

Also worth a hearty mention this week is the newie from Washington's Q and not U, an album on Dischord called 'Different Damage' which is a proper grower.

Nation Of Ulysses
13 Point Program To Destroy America

Indicative of a time when the punk rock 'DIY' spirit was in decline, Nation Of Ulysses breathed life into an otherwise dead genre.
