Guy Picciotto

September 17, 1965, Washington

Ian MacKaye is arguably the most recognizable name when it comes to Fugazi (and quite possibly, all of Washington D.C. hardcore), but that's not to say that his Fugazi bandmate, singer/guitarist Guy Picciotto, hasn't contributed significantly to the group as well. ~ Allmusic: Guy Picciotto ~ retrieved July 15, 2015 © Allmusic

Though not in the original line up of Fugazi, Picciotto joined very early in the group's career, singing with them by their second show and appearing on all the band's studio recordings. ~ Wikipedia: Guy Picciotto ~ retrieved July 21, 2015 © Wikipedia

The Washington, D.C.-based band Fugazi has managed to thrive as a creative unit and as a business organization despite an utter refusal to participate in the mainstream music industry. It is for this reason, they insist, that they've been able to make their volatile, politically charged music without compromise. “While a lot of new music seems manufactured, empty, and devoid of any social consciousness,” wrote Spin's Daniel Fidler, “Fugazi is an essential change.” ~ Musicianguide: Fugazi ~ retrieved July 15, 2015 © Musicianguide
