‘It’s All True’ is an opera-in-suspension from New York ensemble Object Collection based on the complete live archives of iconic underground band Fugazi.

Grounded upon the Live Archive Series of the Washington DC outfit, composer Travis Just and writer/director Kara Feely’s work uses only the incidental music, text and sounds, none of Fugazi’s actual songs.

An obsessive leap into 1500 hours of gig detritus spanning shows from 1987 to 2002, and encompassing random feedback, aimless drum noodling, pre-show activist speeches, audience hecklers, and the police breaking up gigs. All of this material is the foundation of an ear-body-and-mind-flossing 100 minutes for 4 voices/performers, 4 electric guitars/basses and 2 percussionists.

‘It’s All True’ is overloaded, maddening, mundane, properly funny, and a radical incitement to action. Half of this delectably bruising megalith is collected here for the first time and on the accompanying ‘Prisons For Profit EP’ [SLP041], which together form Object Collection’s debut outings on Slip.

The label itself came to a lot of people’s attention last year with the release of Mica Levi and Oliver Coates stunning ‘Remain Calm’ collaboration, a track from which was recently picked by the New York Times in it’s article ‘25 Songs That Tell Us Where Music Is Going’.

‘It’s All True’ was commissioned by and premiered at 2016’s Borealis Festival in Bergen, Norway.

The album is available on 12” vinyl and CD with artwork featuring Henrik Beck’s beautiful photography of the original stage production.

Vinyl comes with a foldout doublesided A2 newspaper print featuring both performance text and liner notes, replicated in the CD edition as a 20 page booklet. Mastered and cut by by Josh Bonati.
