I rediscovered the 1999 Jem Cohen Fugazi documentary, Instrument, while going through an old box of DVDs over the weekend.

I had planned focusing on the ongoing Fugazi live archives for this week’s Spotify entry. Turns out those are not yet available, so I switched gears and carved out twenty favorites culled from the band’s seven studio albums and Instrument soundtrack.

Usually this is a watershed moment for a band […]

I recently re-watched (and re-listened to) the Fugazi documentary Instrument from 1999. Unlike the majority of Discord artists, Fugazi remain one band whose music, despite having been a fan for close to 17 years, never seems to lose its edge, nor my interest. I think this “staying power,” if you will, has to do primarily […]
