Instrument: Ten Years with the Band Fugazi Reviews:

As we ever simplify the English language, suspected to be due to the acceptance of android smartphones and SMS messaging in our everyday lives and the ever-increasing popularity of tv for idiots, it's interesting to see how the meaning of certain words have changed during this period. For example, when I tell the word 'mobile', do you think of a spinning decoration hanging above a baby's cot or a brain cooker? When I tell 'hoover' or 'tannoy', do you correct me for associating a manufacturer with a device? I know that this is well tread zone with regards to observational literature, but one word that's meaning has fully changed but doesn't receive enough press is 'punk'.What's the first artist that comes to mind when I tell the word 'punk'? Green Day? Avril Lavigne? Sum 41? Just what is 'punk' anyway? It's a term that's referenced so often in discussion, folks assume their knowledge of the word based on an analysis of where it's used. When you walk into your local melody store, with the melody nicely arranged into various categories and sub-genres, you'll usually search a 'rock, metal, grunge and punk' section, or something along those lines, yet punk doesn't necessarily have to fit into that genre at all.Punk is not a category of music. Punk is a lifestyle. Most folks have heard of the term 'selling out', but for those who haven't, this is a derogatory term used to refer to an artist / group who have gone vs their own moral standards purely for financial gain. Punk is doing it for yourself. Punk is never selling out. Punk is a community of bands supporting every another out, touring together with a powerful work ethic. The association with the melody we know as punk today comes from the style of melody the bands in the original movement played back in the seventies. Bands like The Clash, Stiff Tiny Fingers, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, The Dictators, Patti Smith... An ever-growing underground stage was born with bands promoting, booking, travelling to their own shows, recording, pressing and distributing their own records etc. As time went on, the underground of punk was becoming so famous that those in the mainstream were forced to sit up and take notice. Seeing bands making it on their own, with no interest in profit was terrible news to record industry executives. The method they dealt with this was by offering most of these artists large deal contracts they couldn't refuse. Life on the street wasn't simple and a lot of these bands were getting old by this point. Most bands took the contracts or had already split up by then. It was the beginning of the end. Over the years, the stage and the name took on a entire fresh meaning. Corporate sponsorships, censorship, manufactured bands... I guess you should compare calling Avril Lavigne punk to calling a monotonous channel four tv present Large Brother.Not many bands kept the old stage alive, it seemed the corporates had won, but one of the several bands to survive were the still-together, critically acclaimed Fugazi. Built from the ashes of Minor Threat (a very popular band from the eighties punk scene) and Happy-Go-Licky, arose Fugazi, these days known as 'The Last Real Punks'. A band with such an interesting career that they made a movie about it! How many million-record-selling, highly influential bands do you know who still package up their own equipment, enjoy countless benefit shows, release their melody on their own label, print "Expect to pay no more than $8" on the cover to every CD they release, never have a set-list when they enjoy and most importantly, live up to their own morals (ahem, Bono, ahem)? There are still a few, but none quite on the scale of Fugazi.This documentary movie spans their whole career, from day one when Guy Picciotto was just a rabid dancer / backing singer in the band through the popularity of their first several albums (the hardcore days), through the direction change of Red Medicine, all the method to the writing of the soundtrack for their own film! Each step of their career is filled with mounds of video footage. An special anomaly that can be place down to the fact that Jem Cohen is in fact the band's mate from school who has been filming them since day one on Super 8mm as an avid fan. Everything from the current recording of parts from Red Medicine to a prisoner taking over the drum-kit in an American correctional facility gig is caught on camera here.Interestingly a lot of the live footage on this video doesn't include the original soundtrack from it, with another tracks super imposed over slow speed artistic video footage. The DVD includes a lot of interview footage from over the years, including the very comical school TV interview conducted by some 13 year old, yet even in those early days, Guy and Ian come across as no-bullshit, clever people. The controversial footage of interviews with 'fans' in a parking lot makes for amusing viewing too, with most of the 'fans' either saying Jem how the band have sold out, or how their 'no slam-dancing' privacy at shows is bull-shit etc. According to Ian Mackaye, that footage was left in purely to present an accurate cross-section of the band's fans. No matter what a band is like, they're everytime going to attract dickhead fanatics as well as those more open-minded.Although by the end two hours of this footage begins to drag on a bit (I suggest watching it in two sittings), I definitely suggest anyone in a band to watch this DVD as a lesson. Fugazi aren't necessarily doing things the 'right' way, but the method they've achieved their status is an admirable feat alone that shouldn't be ignored by others. At no mission do Fugazi belittle another bands for not sharing their morals, they just leave the corporate street to others."Never mind what you're selling, it's what you're buying" - Blueprint


An nice documentary chronicling an nice band. I hope that fifty years from now, this movie is used as reference in a musical and even a sociological sense. Color and b+w both fit well here. The melody is arresting and intense, the imagery fits the melody and the pace. Anyone who likes well made documentaries could see this. Throughout the film, there are fast sketches of folks in line that coincide with pieces of music. This is my favourite part. This might be difficult to find, but hold an eye out for it.


Perfect cinematography is displayed in the film-Cohen utilizes different types of film, from super 8 to 16mm. Fugazi, being the best medley of musicians to emerge from the DC area, is depicted on screen in an 115 minute documentary. The video contains really neat live footage, as well as some premium material. What's not to enjoy?
