Steady Diet of Nothing. LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Fugazi Format: Vinyl. Steady Diet of Nothing. From the opening swarms of "Exit Only," you can tell Steady Diet of Nothing will differ from Fugazi's earlier records. Repeater's excellence can't be denied, but the band stood in danger of stagnating it's sound. To it's benefit, Fugazi made some changes, employing more herk-a-jerk rhythms and dub influences, and changing up the lyrical focus. With Steady Diet, Fugazi get more economical and less forceful.
Album · 1991 · 11 Songs. On their second full-length, Fugazi start to loosen the taut dynamics that defined their debut and preceding EPs. Reclamation boasts all the noise and fury of their signature agit-punk anthems but unfurls like a woozy dub remix, as if its incendiary dissonance were melting down the rhythm section. band had never sounded as supple as they do on the mellow motorik groove of Long Division, with Ian MacKaye’s usual bark replaced by a voice that barely rises above a murmur. Steady Diet of Nothing Fugazi.
Steady Diet Of Nothing" being the only Fugazi album I own, I won't be doing any comparing with earlier or later releases. To set the mood for "Steady Diet Of Nothing" will be the song "Exit Only.
