Fucked up. Got ambushed. Zipped in.

One of those great, great bands that doesn't get talked about much on here, so I made a thread.

My favorite Fugazi song? Shut the Door. Favorite album? Tie between Repeater and Red Medicine.

One of the most consistent bands ever. My favourites are Red Medicine and The Argument.

My favorite albums are 13 Songs and The Argument. It's rather difficult to choose a single song, but I'd probably go with "Repeater."

13 Songs seems to be the best choice for getting someone into them.

Repeater is ****ing brilliant. One of the best albums of the 90s.

I haven't really checked out their other stuff. I should do that someday. Way too much music, so little time...

my friend actually just gave me that album i think it's pretty good so far for what i've listened to of it, i've had " In on the killtaker for a while" and i thought that was a fairly decent album as well

I have a good book called Our Band Could Be Your Life which features biographies of 13 bands (including Minor Threat, Fugazi, Sonic Youth, the Minutemen, Black Flag, and the Butthole Surfers). The story of Minor Threat and Fugazi is an interesting one and I would suggest any fan (or even non-fan) check it out.

On that note, I love the Evens.

Song: Life and Limb

01-23-2007, 07:25 PM
The Argument is by far my favorite album by them. It surpasses 13 Songs in every way.
"Life and Limb" is just so off the wall, I love it.

However, I'm still more of a fan of Ian's earlier band, Embrace, and Guy's earlier band (after Rites of Spring) One Last Wish.

Be sure to check those two out.

As a side note, I saw some guy at Safeway today that looked exactly like Guy.

I love Fugazi. Joe Lally is a superb bassist.

However, I'm of the firm belief that their newest work is WAY better than 13 songs/Repeater + 3 Songs. Steady Diet on feels so much more energetic and less grating too me.

The Argument is one of my all time favorite CD's, and Red Medicine is up there.

It's probably because of the increased output of Guy Picotto. I like his voice so much more.

My favorite album is probably Repeater. I can't really pick a single favorite song though, but definitely Ian > Guy. I may be biased because most of the other stuff Ian has been in too (Minor Threat and Embrace mainly) but Guy's great. Fugazi's great.

stellar_legs
03-24-2007, 11:32 AM
These guys are definitely in my Top 5 and always will be.

Their later stuff is so much better than their early work. Red Medicine and The Argument are just glorious examples of what you can do with Punk music.

Favorite song? No way I can answer that.


I prefer Guy's voice, too.....

Honestly, I haven't even been able to get a hold of older Fugazi!
But since you recommend me the newer, I think I'll start off there. I know I'd love 'em but I just haven't been able to get a copy in any store, so I might order offline.

Although, I was able to get a hold of some Wire and some Pere Ubu, which are both awesome and overdue for me.

I've only got 13 songs, In On The Kill Taker, and Steady Diet. Which is also the order of my favorite to least favorite. I'll probably get all of them eventually, when I have money or more memory on my hard drive, but what should I aim for next?

13 Songs is more Minor Threatish as it's their first two EP's combined, give 'Suggestion' and 'Glue Man' a listen on YouTube. The whole compilation is fantastic though.

I don't know where you heard that, but the general consensus seems to be that Repeater is one of the band's best. Besides, based on what you have so far, that's probably the best bet. The Argument and Red Medicine are the best of the late-period albums.
