Ian Mackaye (Teen Idles, Minor Threat, Fugazi, The Evens, Dischord Records) was recently interviewed for a program called Rear Window. The program is produced for Paradigm Magazine as an extension of the classic 411 Video Magazine Day In The Life series. In this episode, Ian discusses happiness, skateboarding, the value and fiction of history, legacy, and religion.
Legendary skateboarder and vegan Ed Templeton has provided a written introduction, provided in full through the Paradigm website:
Ian Mackaye barely needs an introduction. There might be a young soul out there who has no inkling of what an Ian Mackaye might be , or experienced any of the music he has released into this world. So I will share a few thoughts regarding him.
The interview was conducted for Paradigm by Theo Constantinou. Direction, production and editing is by Derrick Woodyard.
