Fugazi – Steady Diet Of Nothing
Fugazi is an American rock band that formed in Washington, D.C. in 1986. The band consists of guitarists and vocalists Ian MacKaye and Guy Picciotto, bassist Joe Lally, and drummer Brendan Canty. It is noted for its style-transcending music, DIY ethical stance, manner of business practice, and contempt for the music industry. Fugazi’s music and ethics have been immensely influential on punk and alternative music throughout the years, and has earned the band praise from many notable musicians as well. Their style has been described as post-hardcore, art punk, alternative rock, and experimental rock. Steady Diet of Nothing is their second studio album, released in July 1991 by Dischord Records. The title is an allusion to a quote by the late American stand-up comedian Bill Hicks. Although well received and popular at the time of its release, Steady Diet is often overlooked by many music journalists when writing about Fugazi’s career, but remains a favorite among fans of the band. It’s worth mentioning that six months before the release, Dischord had pre-orders of over 160,000 for the album.
