Fugazi, fugazi, fugazi…


(A “fugazi” is mentioned shortly after 0:38.)

I’m always taken aback to learn that “normal people” and “people I consider friends” don’t know who Fugazi is, much less have never listened to their music.

Not that I’m “being that guy”, saying that “I was a fan before they were cool”. No, no. I was graciously exposed to Fugazi (which formed in 1987 and has been on hiatus since 2003) in 1995 or 1996, and I instantly became a fan, taking their mainstream popularity for granted.

And yet–countless times over the years since then, I have had the awkward experience of mentioning Fugazi among polite company, only to be met by blank stares.

Well, if you are among the beloved unwashed, you may begin here:

    Ha. I had a punk phase in high school, I nowadays listen to mostly classical, but I regurarly give my old reco… eh mp3s a spin. My playlist is a hilarious mix. Anyway, I think The Argument and Repeater are my favourite Fugazi albums.

Be kind, be (relatively) brief, be clear...
