Fugazi

Steady Diet Of Nothing


back in stock on 150 gram vinyl with a download card fugazi's third album 'steady diet of nothing' finds the washington dc quartet in a restless mood although the group sticks to its typically incisive political and social commentary with its lyrics the band's sound here is clearly in transition with the bouncy grooves of earlier albums being replaced at times by complex rhythms and droning guitars the latter is prevalent on the opening 'exit only' which highlights buzzing feedback and guy picciotto's raspy vocals and 'reclamation' which takes anthemic guitar riffs and ian mackaye's unmistakable voice and anchors them in dublike bass and drums courtesy of joe lally and brendan canty respectively elsewhere the instrumental 'steady diet' locks into tight uptempo rhythms followed by the spare melancholy 'long division' here mackaye's almostshouted monotone singing nearly subverts the song's beautiful melodies but the whole oddly enough works to wonderful effect for a blazing grand finale fugazi unleashes the gloriously fierce 'kyeo' which stands for 'keep your eyes open' when mackaye screams 'we will not be beaten down' at the song's end it's one of the band's finest moments and a fitting conclusion to another bold fugazi outing
