On today's episode I talk to musician Ian MacKaye. Originally
from Washington DC, Ian is a guitarist and singer who founded
Dischord Records as a teenager in 1980 with Jeff Nelson. Ian and
Jeff went on to form the defining DC hardcore band Minor Threat,
and in 1986, Ian then formed Fugazi with Joe Lally, Brendan Canty
and Guy Picciotto. Over 20+ years the band has released seven
albums and toured the world extensively covering all fifty United
States, Europe, Australia, South America, Japan and many points in
between. Ian has also played with a number of other bands including
Teen Idles, Egghunt and Embrace, and since 2001, he's played in The
Evens, a duo with Amy Farina, and most recently the trio Coriky,
whose first album was released just last summer.
