2011 collection from the cult Washington, DC-based Punk band. When Void started a song it was as if each member was playing his own parts as fast as humanly possible, but not necessarily together. While to some it may have seemed like complete cacophony, to those in the know it was music on a higher level. While organizing their archive, Dischord came across the four-track of Void's first recording session. It was done with Steve Carr at Hit and Run Studios in November '81 and never officially released. The tape was remixed by Ian MacKaye and Don Zientara at Inner Ear earlier this year. Sessions 1981-83 features the entire Hit and Run session along with the first Inner Ear demo (including the Flex Your Head cuts and the songs that ended up on the Condensed Flesh 7-inch), two outtakes from their second Inner Ear session (that spawned their legendary split LP with Faith), and a couple of live recordings including one that is almost certainly the last song they ever played.
