Dedicated to the lovely Ian Mackaye, the man who brought us Teen Idles, Minor Threat, Fugazi, Dischord Records and many more. An inspirational man in hardcore.

If you look at the words ‘don’t smoke,’ everyone figures I’m talking about smoking cigarettes, or grass, or hash; ‘don’t drink’ — everyone figures I’m talking about alcohol; ‘don’t fuck’ — everyone figures I’m saying ‘No sex!’ Think about that! think about the word ‘drink’: what does ‘drink’ mean? Do you think that people would ever figure, ‘Oh, he wants people to no longer take any beverages, or any liquids of any sort?’ But when the word ‘fuck’ comes on, they cannot understand it the same way. that just blew my mind. What I was clearly discussing was abusive, quest-oriented, manipulative sex. People who were not interested in other people’s feeling, but only in getting off. I saw as a teenager that people’s energies were so squarely caught up in getting laid that a lot of pain and hurt came with that. People were being hurt and damaged and traumatized by other people’s behavior.

I’ve met a lot of Minor Threat fans and a lot of Fugazi fans - not nearly enough of them know about Ian MacKaye’s short-lived band called Embrace. This whole album rules and this is probably my favorite track. Check it out if you have any interest in the previously mentioned bands or post-hardcore in general.
