The members of Golden Void have been connected musically off and on since they were teenagers. After playing in various bands together and apart throughout high school and the intervening years, Isaiah Mitchell (guitar/vocals, also of Earthless), Aaron Morgan (bass), and Justin Pinkerton (drums) coalesced as Golden Void after Mitchell’s move to the Bay Area in 2009. When the group realized they needed a keyboard player, the addition of Camilla Saufley-Mitchell seemed only natural. Listening to their self-titled debut album, the high level of musical kindredship that only comes from playing music together during those formative years is instantly apparent. In an age of the internet’s infinite mirror that rewards pointless novelty rather than substance, Golden Void has succeeded in creating a record that exists beyond bloggable tropes of the present and expands upon the traditions of the past.
FOLLOWING the sudden implosion of Parchman Farm, frontman Eric Shea knew that he had two options; start a Firefall tribute act named High On Firefall or build a heavy punk ‘n’ roll quartet by sandwiching members from his favorite San Francisco bands. Following his gut, he pursued the sandwich.
Shea assembled a band comprising guitarist Aaron Nudelman (Mensclub), drummer Rob Alper (SLA, The Fells) and bass player Charlie Karr (Harold Ray Live In Concert). With vintage refrigerator sized tube amps and Rob’s double-kick setup, these four men were soon channeling their love for Grand Funk Railroad, Hawkwind, Lobby Loyde, Misfits, Crushed Butler, Alice Cooper, Blue Cheer, Rush, early 1980s skate punk, UFO, Ace Frehley, Gedo, Sir Lord Baltimore, and Chuck Berry. But the dudes also shared a lusty hunger for noontime meals served piping hot, which led to one of the most clever, well thought-out and originally conceptualized monikers in the entire history of all music: Hot Lunch.
Their debut LP was tracked at Tim Green’s Louder Studios. Recorded on two-inch tape and mastered by John Golden. Thrasher Magazine has exclusively leaked a few songs on their “King Of The Road” video – but the band is keeping the rest (and best) of the album under wraps until its official 2013 release on Tee Pee Records (and Who Can You Trust? Records in Germany).
Like a destructive wind bursting and shredding these six strings of space release some 5,000 notes circleing and oscillating around timelessly and unremittingly in and out of the beating heart and core groove of the drums, the banging the bashing allows the bass to seem far out as a cosmic buffet of pounding and pummeling and punishing and as if underneath the ocean came an atmospheric astral plane of sounds infinite and fuzzed down to the bone do these keyboard ivories tickle as if lost in space. But out with the bull and in with the real, these 4 music lovers and jam crazed heavy seekers search to get that sound aloud and and make a ton of fucking noise...
