Ever wonder what would happen if Fugazi and Minor Threat morphed? The result would likely be something similar to Fugazi’s First Demo. Recorded in 1988 at Virginia’s Inner Ear Studios after only 10 shows (as the story goes), First Demo provides the framework for what would go on to become their first self-titled EP and Repeater LP.
The rest, as they say, is history. Literally. Because along with the release of these previously un-released demos, Fugazi have completed the cataloging of nearly 900 live recordings and collection of related materials for their Live Series website. So after you finish streaming their oldest / most-recent recordings, you can play “listen to the Fugazi show I was at” for hours on end.
First Demo will be available on November 18 via Dischord.
