Nice Fugazi overview of their history in this month's Uncut, finishes with Mackaye saying they do (or did pre-covid) get together to play from time to time for fun, and he's still not willing to say there will never be another gig or LP.

He also dispels the myth that they turned down million dollar deals to sign to a major. Said what happened was they played a show in New York, and some old dude was there who he thought was a friends parent. Guy said, "Hi, I'm Ahmet Ertegun", and Mackaye didn't recognise the name.
"I own Atlantic records, we should do business"
Mackaye said that's ok, thanks very much but they had their own label which covered their needs.
Ertegun said "I can do you a label deal like Mick".
Mackaye only copped after the fact he meant set them up like "Rolling Stone records"!

Said he wrote him a letter after the fact thanking him for coming to the gig and if he ever made it to DC he'd love to hang out just to hear some stories. Ertegun replied sure and he'd take him to his 'favourite funky place in Chinatown', but it never happened.

Fugazi are one of my favourite bands of all time and I regret never going to see them.

However, and this is going to be really unpopular, I'd be ok if they didn't do another album and tour together.
