Joe Lally, bassist for Fugazi, the seminal post-hardcore band that announced its indefinite hiatus in 2003, is releasing There To Here on Dischord. The solo album, slated for an October 9 release, was recorded at Inner Ear Studios by Ian MacKaye and Don Zientara and at the Dischord House by MacKaye.
MacKaye, Fugazi's guitarist, also contributed on the album, as did Fugazi member Guy Picciotto. Other artists Lally worked with include Jason Kourkounis (Hot Snakes, Delta 72), Jerry Busher (French Toast), Danny Frankel (K.D. Lang), Eddie Janney (Rites Of Spring, One Last Wish), Amy Farina (the Evens), Scott "Wino" Weinrich (Spirit Caravan, Hidden Hand) and Antonia Tricarico.
Dischord says that the album features "Lally's spare and direct bass compositions." Lally will also tour with Antelope in the fall. Regardless of Fugazi's extended time-out, every member but drummer Brendan Canty contributed to the album.
