Approaching Oblivion has posted a detailed interview with Ian Mackaye of Fugazi, Minor Threat and Dischord Records. He talks about the status of the label:

We don't have a lot of current bands. Part of our arrangement from the very beginning was that we were documenting a specific musical scene. I think that it waxes and wanes, it's a living thing, and eventually it will die because it's a living thing. I don't think we're done documenting things, but right now we have a specific back catalog that people are interested in and we feel that we have a serious custodial responsibility to distribute this music. [,,,] Hopefully something new will come along. I'm hungry to have my mind blown by something or somebody to come along and knock the shit out of me musically.

He also talks a little about the oft-rumoured Fugazi reunions:

The four of us love each other dearly. I saw Brendan last night, I was on the phone with Guy today, and Joe is on tour at the moment. We are a family we don't stray from each other. We worked really hard for 15 years; the band was the central aspect of our lives, and at some point life demanded attention. We have the desire to play, but there's a geographical issue. Joe currently lives in Rome and that makes it hard to practice. But to get back to Fugazi playing again, we've been offered an insane amount of money to play reunions, but it's not going to be money that brings us back together, we would only play music together if we wanted to play music together and the time allowed it.
