David Ballantyne of The Vinyl Score returns to make his 2nd appearance of the year to talk about the 1999 Jem Cohen documentary, Instrument, which captures a 10 year snapshot of the band, Fugazi, between 1987 and 1996. Even though the film has live footage, and footage of the band recording, it's not a traditional rock documentary and the soundtrack also subverts those expectations.

David and Ryan share about how they first discovered the band and what expectations they had for the documentary upon first viewing. They also talk about the legend of the band, especially of it's frontman, Ian MacKaye.
