So this is really awesome. Back in the day when Dave Grohl was a kid growing up in Springfield, Virginia, he was a huge fan of Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), who at the time was playing in the DC area band Minor Threat. He was so much of a fan to where he wrote a letter to Ian asking if he could get “some numbers or people to get in touch with.”
Back in the late 80s Fugazi entered the studio for the first time after only playing about 10 shows. The 11 songs they recorded were put on cassette and given away for free at their shows. Pretty cool, right?
Before there was YouTube in 1988, the mighty Fugazi entered the studio to record a demo after only playing about 10 shows. They tracked 11 songs and released them on cassette, giving them away at shows for free.
So back in 1988, when we were toddlers and most of you weren’t even born, Fugazi entered the studio to record a demo after only playing about 10 shows. They tracked 11 songs, put them on cassette, and gave them away for free at their gigs.
Do you remember when we interviewed Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi, etc.) and he told us about some of the early Minor Threat shows? The band’s first performance ever was at a house in DC on Calvert Street — and guess what? If you’re looking for a new home in that area, it’s up for grabs.
