Any good? Is it worth parting money for? Mainly documentary-based with clips from live shows?
Fill me in, yo.
Fugazi is an American alternative rock band that formed in Washington, D.C. in 1987. The band's continual members were guitarists Ian MacKaye and Guy Picciotto (who both shared vocal duties), bassist Joe Lally and drummer Brendan Canty. Noted for their ethical stance and manner of business practice, the band experienced commercial success during the 1990s while remaining on their independent record label, Dischord Records. Fugazi has been on hiatus since 2002.
most definately, it doesn't just compie live shows, heck, it only plays about 3 songs from start to finish
it has alot of interviews with the band, fly on the wall documentation of red medicine and live shows.
also interviews of joe public and what they think of fugazi, like one guy saying that ian mackaye considers himself a god and is a sellout, which is pretty interesting to hear
aswell as jem cohen doing some artsy stuff to fugazi demos as soundtrack
I've watched it about 100 times, some of the live footage really is incredible. It's also really well shot, very arty and thought out. Highly recommended and essential for a big Fugazi fan.
film i've ever seen.
