Sunday marks ten years since legendary D.C. outfit's final performance.

Ten years ago this Sunday, Fugazi took the stage at the London Forum and performed at the Kentish Town venue for the third night in a row. Shortly after, they announced an “indefinite hiatus”. November 4, 2002, would be the band’s last ever show.


You can mark the occasion by listening to the entire 100-minute performance on YouTube.

Sonnymoon defy easy listening and categorgisation: they understand that pigeon holes are for pigeons.

Sonnymoon defy easy listening and categorgisation: they understand that pigeon holes are for pigeons. They’re not interested in finding a nesting space, but transcending boundaries. And listeners might be the ones ending up cooing. As the Guardian recently observed in anticipation of their new album (self titled):


Sonnymoon’s music is woozy, magical, mysterious, hypnotic, quixotic. Other words that occurred while we were listening to their self-titled album, released this autumn, included: squelchy, fantastic, phantasmic, plasmic, plastic, spasmic, orgasmic. It is liquid and loose, unconventional and unorthodox. It jerks and juts out at ridiculous angles, but it can also be smooth and easy on the ear. At various points it will seem as though you are listening to an electronica record, at other times to an R&B one, a jazz one, an avant-garde one, even a pop one. Some of the songs will sound like all of the above, at once, while others will make you wonder whether you are listening to a brand new, as yet unnamed genre.


Since no single track can do them justice, we’ve decided to provide an overview.

Moon King’s “Only Child” is the standout track from their Obsession 1 EP, and its a remarkable pop/punk song that deserves more attention than its been given. Turn up LOUD , and don’t stand too close to the speakers in case it propels you across the room.
