Washington, DC based punk rock band originally affiliated with Dischord Records and featuring ex. members of Minor Threat & Bloody Mannequin Orchestra. The band formed in 1985 and broke up in 1988. In that time they went through a number of lineup changes. The "classic" line up of Brian Baker, Dave Smalley, Roger Marbury, and Colin Sears got back together to record in 1991 and 2002. In 2016 record label "Dischord" (own of Ian McKaye of Fugazi) issued a two songs single, which can to think us about new Dag Nasty album, probably in 2018... but it's just a suposition. Anyway this album is a must, excellent and essential.


































































"minority of one"
Year:  2002
Label:  Dischord
Format:  CD
Tracks:  12
Time:  36
Genre:  rock

Minority of One happened to be D.C. punk legends Dag Nasty's first album in ten years, following the lackluster Four on the Floor EP released through Epitaph in 1992. Where Four on the Floor's production woes held these emocore originators from truly shining, Minority of One glowed with fiery dedication to one's craft. Although it was 16 years since Dag Nasty first came together, they seemed to still have the spark that boosted them to such independent heights; the songwriting and musical achievements captured on this album were stupendous. Straightforward, melodically enhanced punk rock at its best is heard on these 11 tracks. Dave Smalley's vocals were still as blunt and pleasing to the ear, and Brian Baker's melodic guitar melted the heart with its intense sincerity. Even after all the time apart, Dag Nasty returned with an album that may be the best release in their career, proving that these musicians were still at the head of the pack, pulling on your emotions while moving the blood through one's veins; if only all emocore was this enjoyable and accessible.
