Daily Void, The – Identification Code: 5271-4984953784-06564 – New LP
Chicago band, 3⁄4 of the Functional Blackouts and who cut their teeth with singles for Boom Chick, HoZac, and Florida’s Dying disjointed, death-tinged noisy punk.
Carved out of the belly of the late Functional Blackouts, The Daily Void features Mac Blackout, Dr. Filth and Rob Karlic from the Blackouts. The evident spill over of the later Functional Blackouts sound seems to have come to a festering head with their latest venture with fervid, marching and snarling songs that plow over the cushy corners of 'art rock' with a welcoming, plundering, doom. In eleven wonderfully twisted songs, The Daily Void spell out a bleak future for humanity that reaches deep into the minds of lunatics and mutants twisting their remaining shreds of sanity into music. This beast of a record shows traces of early Saccharine Trust chopped alongside the primordial ooze of Rudimentary Peni spewing grisly tales of life in the apocalypse. The LP includes a nice insert with artwork by Dr. Filth
