Joe Lally Why Should I Get Used To It on LP
Third Solo Album from Fugazi Bassist
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 that time, Joe has continued to write and perform solo material, accompanied by various musicians and friends. Joe has released three solo albums to date - There to Here (2006), Nothing is Underrated (2007), and Why Should I Get Used To It (2011).
Joe's albums are never really solo efforts; rather they feature collaborations with fellow musicians who use his bass-lines as an anchor. For Why Should I Get Used to It, Joe settled in with a more traditional line-up featuring his current touring mates, guitarist Elisa Abela and drummer Emanuele Tomasi. The album was recorded in Rome, where Joe now lives with his family, and was released on Dischord in conjunction with Joe's imprint, Tolotta Records.
