Ian MacKaye speaks out

Ian MacKaye did an in depth interview with The Onion recently and spoke, amongst other things, about Fugazi being used in the World Series:

“It is reassuring to know that, despite all the attempts of the major labels and ad industry to control all of music, that something so totally independent can still pop up to the surface. I kind of get a kick out of it.”

He also spoke on how frustrating it was for Fugazi to play in bigger venues, claiming he felt bigger PA systems gave him a “voice of God” problem. He went on to say:

“Also, when you have a room that big and so many people in it, the people in the back of the room are having a completely different experience than the people in the front of the room.”
