8. Instrument Soundtrack (1999): The soundtrack to Jem Cohen’s full-length documentary feature on the band, 1999’s appropriately if prosaically titled Instrument Soundtrack is a largely instrumental collection of sketches, ideas, jams, demos, and various ephemera, the highlight of which is a rare piano piece by MacKaye. The incidental music is compelling enough, but, perhaps predictably, works better in the context of the film. Unless you enjoy the idea of an alternate-universe Fugazi, one in which the band is recast as an artsy experimental group inspired more by Slint than by songs, Instrument Soundtrack remains enjoyable but inessential.
