Joe Lally

Nothing Is Underrated


Dischord 158

Released on November 20, 2007


Joe Lally has played bass in Fugazi since the band's inception in 1987. In 2003 the members of Fugazi decided to take an indefinite hiatus from recording and performing. Since then Joe has continued to write and perform new material both solo and in collaboration with various musicians and friends. Joe's first album, "There to Here", was released in October 2006 and featured guest performances from Fugazi-mates Ian Mackaye, Guy Picciotto and Jerry Busher as well as many others. In the last year he has toured extensively, playing everything from Jazz festivals to rock clubs, in the US, Europe, and Brazil, often accompanied live by members of The Melvins, Capillary Action, Zu and others. “Nothing Is Underrated”, like Joe's first album, was produced by Ian MacKaye at Dischord House and was mixed at Inner Ear Studios. Joe has again collaborated and recorded with many fellow musicians, including: Ben Azzara - drums (The Capitol City Dusters, DCIC), Andy Gale - drums (Haram), Eddie Janny - guitar (Rites of Spring), Sam Krulewitch - kayboards (Capillary Action), Ricardo Lagomasino - drums (Capillary Action), Ian MacKaye - guitar (Fugazi), and Guy Picciotto - guitar (Fugazi) and Devin Ocampo - drums (Medications).

Joe Lally shreds. I cannot compare this to his first solo record, There to Here, as I have not heard it. But this one, boy, its good. Really lo-fi, quiet songs. That does not mean he doesn't totally get his grovve on on tracks like "Tonight at Ten" and "Painfully Aware". Great singing. This is comparable to his buddy Ian MacKaye's current band, The Evens. As his primary instrument is the bass guitar, you hear that and feel that in every song. Not only is it the backbone of the songs, but its at the forefront of them. After all, 8 of the 13 songs have no guitar. Joe's bass and singing is the only constant throughout the record. 3 songs do not feature drums. He is joined on this record but his Fugazi buddies Ian MacKaye on guitar on tracks 3 & 9 and backing vocals on track 11, and Guy Picciotto plays guitar on tracks 2,5, & 6, and even plays some clarinet on track 12.

CD comes with a lyric book and clocks in at 36:45. One song, "Painfully Aware" seems like there is a guitar in it playing a lead, but its Joe's bass, he plays more than one on it. Its great, like I said before, the man knows how to shred on a bass line.

The last song,"Strascinata" sounds quite different from the other songs. Sounds like he is just recording it to a tape player, instead of going from his amp. I dig it.

There are some sick keyboard licks on several songs throughout the record, played by Sam Krulewitch. Really adds a lot of darkness and complexity to the songs. A lot of this album is just Joe's bass lines, his vocals on top, and some ambient guitar or keyboard sounds. That said, I highly suggest it. Expand your music, and check this out even if its different than your normal jams. Its groovy! At the end of the record you can hear someone yell, "Alright!" I think its Ian!
