By June 1993, when Washington, D.C.'s Fugazi released their third full-length album In on the Kill Taker, the quartet was reaching a thunderous peak in popularity and influence. With two EPs (combined into the classic CD 13 songs) and two albums (1990's genre-defining Repeater and 1991's impressionistic follow-up Steady Diet of Nothing) inside of five years, Fugazi was on creative roll.
Few knew how difficult it had been to make this breakthrough LP. Disappointed with the sound of the self-produced Steady Diet, the band recorded with legendary engineer Steve Albini, only to scrap the sessions and record at home in D.C. with producer Ted Niceley. Kill Taker became an alt-rock classic, even as its defiant, muscular sound stood in stark contrast to the mainstreaming of the alternative, DIY culture and worldview they held dear.
This book features new interviews with all four members of Fugazi and members of their creative community.
