Fugazi - In On The Killtaker [2023 Repress]

€27,95
You know this, but... There's bands. And then there's FUGAZI. 1993 calling here with the outfit at the very top of their powers. Atlantic Records offered to sign them for $10 million and the boys turned them down. We love Fugazi.

1993's In on the Kill Taker is like scrubbing your face with steel wool. It finds the band relying on rusty guitar shards that scrape, seethe, and hiss, further removing itself from the sound of their other albums, '13 Songs' and 'Repeater'. Harsh and grating, Fugazi surprisingly produces sheer noise at times, best witnessed in the lengthy closing of '23 Beats Off' and the unintentional gremlins homage that opens 'Walken's Syndrome.' Joe Lally's bass and Brendan Canty's drums are relegated to acting as a guide; they're pushed - but not squashed - down in the mix, allowing for Ian Mackaye and Guy Picciotto's guitars to take control, corrosively so.

 

It's probably Fugazi's least digestible record from front to back, but each track has its own attractive qualities, even if not immediately perceptible. 'Facet Squared' and 'Public Witness Program' open the record furiously, but the majority of the following 'Return the Screw' is hardly audible, aside from occasional vocal tantrums. A good amount of time is spent alternating between low-key guitar noodling and intrusive bursts of aggression. They're smart with their sequencing, placing the gentle instrumental 'Sweet and Low' (the only track where Lally plays a prominent role) after the exhaustive cacophony of '23 Beats Off,' and generally piecing together a set of rather diverse tracks that flows well. Picciotto's anti-hollywood rant on the properly titled 'Cassavetes' is a classic Fugazi moment, as is his similarly name-dropping 'Walken's Syndrome.' Buried at the end of the record are two excellent lurchers, Mackaye's 'Instrument' and picciotto's 'Last Chance for a Slow Dance.' One of Fugazi's most daring and rewarding albums.
