Not much time to blog this week, but when it comes to live hardcore bootleg 7" is there anything better than Void's live 2.13.83 single? Nope. Recorded totally in the red at the 9:30 Club. The blur of guitar/drums/air mixed with the snarly vocals totally sounds like a precursor to black metal. I wouldn't be surprised if someone dug up a much dubbed cassette tape of this gritty blur from Euronymous's cold dead tape deck. And yet, it is totally fucking psychedelic, too! Anyways, for those of us who never saw Void (unlike Eric Dejesus), this is one incredible document, especially in the face of the super tight DC Hardcore deal. In Eric's words (via baked email) "i'm gonna get a dog and name him 2 13 83"... so there you go.

And totally retarded, but awesome is the Society's Ills 7". Mike Watt (bass), Dez Cadena (guitar), Dave Markey (drums), Thurston Moore (vocals) do a cover of 7 Seconds' Skins, Brains & Guts 7". Recorded in 1994. Jokey and dumb, but still great in its own way. Wish I was there for the recording. Joints!
