Christmas has come early for fans of the hugely influential Fugazi, with the launch of their Live Series. Taken from over 800 shows recorded around the world by the band’s sound engineers, the site launches today with the first 130. In keeping with their constant ethos, the suggested price for each download is a mere $5 but you can set your own price. At present, only one Irish show is available (Kilkenny from 1999) but the site does suggest that more are coming, including their legendary AIDS Act Up show with Chumbawamba at the SFX in Dublin from 1992. For more on the band’s association with Ireland and promoters the Hope Collective, read our feature.
