Joe Lally Roman Record Launch

The former Fugazi bassist launches his new solo record tonight with his newly laid Italian roots
- Text by Flavia Ferrucci
Joe Lally founded Fugazi in 1987 with Ian Mackaye and remained the band's bassist until they went on 'indefinite hiatus' in 2003. Ever since, Joe started a solo career that led to the release of three albums that saw him collaborating with important names of American alternative music. His third solo effort was just released on Dischord in conjunction with Joe’s imprint, Tolotta Records.
Taking a step forward from his earlier works that mainly consisted in collaborations with fellow musicians who used his basslines as an anchor, on “Why Should I Get Used to It” he has settled in with a more traditional line-up featuring his current touring mates, guitarist Elisa Abela and drummer Emanuele Tomasi. The album, a solid rock record with strong folk influences, was recorded in Rome, where Joe now lives with his family. He has decided to have its release party here, tonight, at the Coffee Pot club, having an intimate show for the Roman crowd. Joe and his band will then continue to tour in 2011, with dates in Japan, Europe and Brazil already booked, and more dates and territories to follow.
