Fugazi - 'In On The Killer' - Albini demos
Due to popular demand, here are some more Fugazi rarities for your consumption. As faras I know, every song ever released by Fugazi was recorded in one place; the legendary Inner Studios in DC. However in 1993, the band decided to see how things would sound if they mixed things up slightly and drafted in a different producer. Thus they spent a few days with Steve Albini in his own Electrical Audio studios in Chicago, Illinois, where they tested some of the songs that would later form the bulk of that year's stunning In On The Killtaker.
Unfortunately however none of these sessions would form part of that album. The band later stated that they were unsatisfied with their own performances, and Albini (rather humbly for him) said that he thought the official album was better in almost every way. Luckily for us some of the songs, or maybe all of them (i'm not sure!), leaked online some time last year. And here they are. For you. You lucky people.
Personally I don't think they're AMAZING, and they're clearly inferior to the finished products, but its still very nice to hear such an amazing band work with someone as idiosyncratic as Albini.
