Repeater + 3 Songs
Label: Dischord Records
After devoting three EPs to the chiseling of their sound (which most certainly is sculptural and full of dizzying angles), Fugazi unveiled Repeater in 1990. In no time it became one of the most beloved albums in the American underground. A foundation of the post-hardcore movement, it was an exercise in democratic principles on both the lyrical and aesthetic level (i.e. the grafting of hardcore's for the kids philosophy with post-punk's avant-garde deconstruction of both funk and prog-rock). Needless to say, the anthems come fast and hard, including "Repeater," "Blueprint" and "Merchandise."
