An album of instrumental tracks using samples from Fugazi’s catalog, titled Fugazi Edits, will be released in October.
Fugazi are currently in the process of putting together an enormous digital archive that will include video footage of nearly every performance from the band, according to worldoffugazi.com.
Guitarist/Vocalist Guy Picciotto tells the fan site: “We are not that far away from being able to set up our own website where ultimately almost every show we ever played will be available for download.”
The first batch of shows are expected out late 2010 or early next year.
Punknews.org is reporting that Ian MacKaye (Fugazi, Minor Threat, Dischord Records) will be giving a lecture at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA on November 20th at 7:30PM. The event will take place at the Barshinger Center for Music at 619 College Ave. Donations of $5 are appreciated.
Dischord Records has released a re-cut version of the Fugazi 12” EP “Margin Walker”.
