The Daily Void - Identification Code: 5271-4984953784-06564
The Daily Void might be the best punk band from Chicago. 3/4s of Functional Blackouts and featuring Mac Blackout. Some total weirdo stuff here. Just judging by the artwork of this LP you might say this shit came from space; looks like an industrial power plant with some stairway into a black hole (steam punks will love this shit). The artwork isn't the only odd thing here. Song titles include, "Tapewurm, Insect, Man Without A Face", etc. The vocals can get a little freaky too. On "The Man Without A Face" the "Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha" chorus sounds like if you were being stabbed to death by a serial killer. Anyways, The Daily Void are basically doing the noisy, "art punk" gig; but play well and interesting enough to say they're doing their own thing. For fans of Rudi P, Homostupids, Darvocets and the Fashionable Idiots discography. Buy this LP on Dead Beat. More records on Hozac, Boomchick, and Florida's Dying. All gone though.
