Rubblebucket Cover Fugazi’s “Waiting Room”

RB - Fugazi cover art

Rubblebucket has had a massive year. After an incredible 2014 tour and features on NPR and The New York Times, the band took a break and came back with this. Their cover of Fugazi’s “Waiting Room” off of 1989’s 13 Songs respects¬†the original but adds that distinctive Rubblebucket sound (the brass!). Check out what Alex Toth had to say about the cover.

There was a vibrant hardcore scene where i grew up in NJ in the late 90’s. Many of my friends were in bands (while I was off doing jazz), setting up DIY shows and shooting homemade movies. Fugazi was king. Last year Kal and I spent a lot of time in waiting rooms. I was listening to “13 Songs” recently while decompressing from our end of year tour, and this one just crushed me.

You’re welcome to bump this all day:
