Performer Notes
  • Fugazi: Brendan Canty, Joe Lally, Ian MacKaye, Guy Picciotto.
  • REPEATER originally released on Dischord (44). 3 SONGS originally released on Dischord (43).
  • For Fugazi's second full-length release, the band unleashed a fierce set that expanded on the strongest elements of 13 SONGS. The ominous, slowly building opener, "Turnover," gets things off to a guitar-heavy start, and other thrillingly aggressive tunes include the groove-laden title track and the punky, lurching "Break-In." This restless energy carries over into Fugazi's lyrics, as sung by co-frontmen Ian MacKaye and/or Guy Piccotto, which hit with the subtlety of a sledgehammer, as exemplified on "Merchandise" ("You are not what you own") and "Greed" ("You wanted everything/You needed everything"). This is where the quartet solidified its well-documented anti-establishment reputation.
  • REPEATER is also notable for its two instrumentals--the highly rhythmic "Brendan #1" (named after drummer Brendan Canty) and the almost jazzy "Joe #1" (named after bassist Joe Lally). Based on these excellent tracks, it's no surprise that subsequent Fugazi albums consistently featured an instrumental or two, with each one showcasing the group's remarkable sense of unity, melody, and invention.
Professional Reviews

Alternative Press (7/95, p.89) - Rated #50 in AP's list of the `Top 99 Of '85-'95' - "...This album is another compelling example of the inevitable conflict of desperate everyman values so keenly articulated by Supermen. REPEATER is a sarcastic request. Don't repeat. Do your own thing!..."

NME (Magazine) (1/26/02, p.23) - Included in NME's "Most Influential Emo Records Of All Time" - "...A masterpiece...Generally recognized as one of the greatest 'alternative rock' albums ever..."
