    Buy Repeater, End Hits, Red Medicine and then finally the rest of their catalogue.

    I only have Repeater and The Argument, which are both good, but all of their discography is supposed to be of a high quality.

    You also might like the previous band that Ian Mackaye was in before Fugazi... the band is Minor Threat ....

    what type of music do they play? all I know about them is that they've developed a reputation as a band that tries to flaunt its obscurity. that''s what i've heard, at least.

    some hardcore/indie hybrid. they also have 'funk' influences not disimilar to RHCP earlier stuff.

    its weird and hard to classify.

    In On The Kill Taker and Red Medicine are my personal favorites, but you can't really go wrong with any of their albums.

    I say 13 Songs and Repeater.

    I thought they were post-punk?

    I thought post hardcore was Neurosis, Cult of Luna, Isis et al.
    Maybe that's progressive hardcore...

    Also: I seem to remember having "Repeater" aaaages ago and really liking it, so I am downloading their entire discography from Hoppykins.

    There are many subgenres which are post-punk. Death rock, for example. My point is that calling something "post-punk" doesn't indicate anything specific about it.

    I don't know...I get a certain vibe from the term "post-punk." I think Fugazi or early U2 or any band that takes a punk template and stretches it. It's hard to explain.

    Post-grunge would be Nickelback or Puddle of Mudd:)Puke: sometimes it's a stretching of the butthole as the corpse is railed posthumously)

    Post-rock would be At the Drive In, The Mars Volta, or stuff like that.

    I'm probably misusing the terminology, no?
