An Interview with Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat/Dischord Records

One of the most important and uncompromising independent musicians of the last thirty years, Ian MacKaye has founded two influential bands (Minor Threat and Fugazi) and a landmark record label (Dischord Records). Throughout his career, MacKaye has kept his attention squarely on his fanbase and on the musicians who wish to follow in his footsteps - since founding Dischord in 1980 he has personally mentored many of the label’s signees, and has made a longstanding policy of selling every Dischord release for a retail price point of $10.
