Fugazi surfaces again to post videos of every live show online

The internet: it’s the scourge of true punk ethics and the main reason why any of these old punk bands are remembered anyway. After twenty years (and one record), The Vaselines announced their big comeback. Additionally, every few years Mission of Burma releases an album and tours with bands young enough to be their kids.

Now Fugazi embraces the digital age – a slightly uncomfortable, holding-it-too-long embrace – with plans to post videos of almost every show they’ve ever played on their not-yet-made official website.

Fugazi have revealed plans to put hundreds of their concerts online, helping thousands of fans to recall their favourite mosh-pit bruises. The legendary 1990s punk band will launch an internet archive featuring "almost every show" they ever played.

"We are not that far away from being able to set up our own website where ultimately almost every show we ever played will be available for download," guitarist Guy Picciotto recently told fansite World of Fugazi

Somebody, help them with their website. And then help them release their first album in nearly a decade instead of showing us the punk equivalent of their old high school football photos. (Kidding, we love them.)
