archive fever, pt 397
behold the madness of the Fugazi Live Series archive!
"In keeping with our plan, we uploaded an additional 25 concert downloads on January 1, 2012 and we'll continue doing this each month until we reach our goal of making every Fugazi concert recording in our collection available.... Between 1987 and 2003, Fugazi played over 1000 concerts in all 50 states and all over the world. Over 800 of these shows were recorded by the band's sound engineers. The goal of this project is to make each of these recordings available to download for a small fee...
The size and scope this archive dictates that it will remain a semi-permanent work-in-progress. We welcome visitors to contribute photos, recordings, corrections, and any additional info that may be missing from specific shows.... The standard suggested download price is $5 a show but we also offer a sliding scale option where you can set your own price, and an All Access site membership."
an article about this madness i tell you MADNESS!
(i cannot think of ANY band, not one, not even my absolutest favouritest band ever in the whole wide world and ALL OF TIME, that i would want to listen to a recording of their every last show. i can't think of many i'd want to listen to more than one live recording of any given phase of their career/evolution. but never been a fan of the live album so...)g
