This doesn’t sound like it could be even remotely good.
According to a press release I received today, some dude named Chris Lawhorn will release his fifth album Fugazi Edits on October 30 through Case/Martingale Records. The record features 22 tracks, which were pieced together using excerpts from every song in Fugazi’s discography.
The release claims the album’s been in the works for almost two years, and is entirely instrumental, combining over 100 Fugazi samples with a variety of effects.
Apparently, Ian Mackaye has allegedly authorized the album’s release, and he doesn’t authorize anything. Profits from sales of the album will be donated to a pair of charities — one that works with senior citizens in Washington, D.C. and another that provides aid globally to folks impacted by disaster and civil unrest.
Lawhorn is the former drummer for Cataract Falls, which is a random fact you might be able to use some day.
You can hear samples from the record here.
