    Does anyone here listen to Fugazy/?
    Joe Lally is a great bass player.
    He's just amazing and I just don't hear anyone ever talking about him.
    under-rated big time.

    I agree. He's got some innovative and melodic lines that really caught my ear the 1st time I heard 13 Songs ...god like 13 years ago?! Was it that long ago? It wasn't that he was a super technical player that caught my ear it was his melodies he'd use over the guitar lines. Very interesting and fitting for their sound.

    Fugazi.
    Sorry.
    I used to listen to them about 10 yrs ago and I just started listening to them again and now that I play bass, I can say this guy is great. There's no such thing as too much bass in a band. Listen to Fugazi and you'll see.

    Eh, I'll play. I've heard "The Waiting Room" and I thought it was fantastic. I've been meaning to pick up an album or two by them. Anyone wanna recommend my first Fugazi album?


    I've just been iffy about them because the singer is Ian McKaye from Minor Threat right? He was so off key and out of time with Minor Threat it made me sick, but he sounds decent in "The Waiting Room". Does this hold true for most Fugazi.


    I hate nothing more than a terrible singer, they can ruin a great band for me. :spit:

    No worries dude. He got hooked up and took some vocal lessons form the master..... Mark Hoppus. His voice is now harmonious enough to appeal to the new generation of market savie punkers.

    Minor threat was totally different.
    i'd start out with Repeater and 13 songs.
    totally different from anything out there
    and catchy as well.

    Oh I forgot, the point of punk is to be off key. :confused:

    No, by no means... The point of punk is to appeal to the masses by making socially acceptable music.

    Fugazi is pretty far from punk rock...even though all the members have roots in punk. They're more Prog/Art rock than anything else. If you haven't picked up Repeater or 13 Songs...DO SO! Good stuff and you'll like some of the basswork.

  12. fugazi is a great band... and I love those bass lines. I guess all of their albums are worthwile, but I only own 13 songs, Red Medicine ("Bed for the scraping" is one of their best songs) and The Argument, which is their lates album. they're all great.


    concerning Minor Threat: you can hardly say that Ian sang a lot in that band.. he rather screamed. which he did well, in my humble opinion.

    does anyone else here listen to his post-Minor Threat, pre-fugazi band Embrace?

    eyedigit.

    Embrace is OK, I like Guy's bands more than Ian's. Rites of Spring, One Last Wish, Happy Go Licky, all cool.
