Since Lookout Records has officially shutdown permanently, I thought I’d post something from one of my favorite Lookout releases. ”Promise Me” is the opening track from Scherzo’s Suffering and Joy. Scherzo filled the small stylistic gap between Monsula and Samiam, or something. Anyway it’s a great record, track it down if you can.
This fall, Fugazi’s label, Dischord Records, launched an online archive that will eventually host more than 800 of the never-before-heard live recordings, each newly mastered and most available for the band’s traditional $5 fee. About 25 new shows are being added every month, along with flyers, photos, and MacKaye’s own tour ephemera.
