Dischord and co. offer free studio time to DC up-and-comers
- Fugazi »
Dischord Records - founded by Jeff Nelson and Fugazi's Ian MacKaye - is working in conjunction with other local organisations in the Washington, DC area to open the famous Inner Ear Studios up to young musicians, for free.
The label - home at one point or another to the wonderful likes of Faraquet, Q And Not U, Bluetip, Lungfish, Black Eyes, Hoover and Medications - is working alongside Ruffian Records and Swim-Two-Birds Studios, as well as Inner Ear, to help DC youngsters get material down on tape for no monetary outlay. The project's called the CD Free Recording Project. A what-it-says-on-the-tin affair, then.
To qualify for a five-hour session, bands must be at least fifty per cent over 18 and live in the Washington, DC area. Anyone wishing to be considered should e-mail the organisers via the project's website, linked below.
