overlooked project from Ian Mackaye
This is a peculiar record, it's a side project that Ian Mackaye and Jeff Nelson of Minor Threat made in the "lost years" the years between Minor Threat (and Embrace) and Fugazi. I believe that Mackaye and Nelson were working on an Egg Hunt band, but that was not to be, and Mackaye would go on to form Fugazi. This record represents a transition from the hardcore sound of Minor Threat to the more post-punk/hardcore sound of Fugazi. I remember buying this 7" on vinyl when it came out, and I liked it, I still think the songs are great. It was a good "sneak peak" at what Ian's next band would sound like. Definitely recommended for Fugazi fans, especially if you like the early stuff. I the songs still sound great even after over 20 years!
