On October 14th we will be re-issuing Slant 6’s debut full-length, Soda Pop*Rip Off, on vinyl. Originally released in 1993, the LP has been out of print for nearly two decades. The record has been remastered by TJ Lipple and will be pressed to red-colored vinyl. Pre-orders will begin mid-September.
This fall, Dischord will release Fugazi’s First Demo.
In January 1988, after only ten shows, Fugazi decided to go into Inner Ear Studio to see what their music sounded like on tape. They tracked 11 songs, ten of which were ultimately dubbed to cassette tape and distributed free at shows, with the band encouraging people to share the recording.
The only song from the session that has been formally released was “In Defense of Humans,” which appeared on the State of the Union compilation in 1989. Now, some 26 years later, Dischord is releasing the entire demo including the one song (“Turn Off Your Guns”) that wasn’t included on the original cassette. The record has been mastered by TJ Lipple and will be available on CD and LP+Mp3.
This release will also coincide with the completion of the initial round of uploads to the Fugazi Live Series website. Launched in 2011, the site now includes information and details on all of Fugazi’s 1000+ live performances and makes available close to 900 concert recordings that were documented by the band and the public.
