As though Keith Morris wasn't busy enough fronting the only worthwhile Black Flag reincarnation, he's also in charge of vocals for OFF!, the punk rock love child between Morris (Black Flag, Circle Jerks), Shane McDonald (Redd Kross), Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless), and Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides).
The band has just released the first single from their upcoming third record, Wasted Years, and it's one minute of furious, forceful, face-melting old-school punk. "Void You Out" could easily be an overlooked B-side from a record that came out 30 years ago, but the fact that it came from a group of punk rock veterans makes it even better. PS Greg Ginn: This is how you do punk over 40.
Morris spoke to Rolling Stone about the song:
"Who was here first? A bunch of uptight, always-right Caucasians with their heads buried up each other's asses, trying to tell the rest of us how North American history went down and is going to be changed because of their intelligence or lack thereof. Thus: 'Void You Out!'"
Wasted Years comes out on VICE Records April 8th. Stay tuned to Zumic for more.
