The Voidz appear on Amoeba Records ‘What’s In My Bag?’

The Voidz

The Voidz made a stop at Amoeba Records in LA this past summer, picking out some of their favorite records for a brand new episode of ‘What’s In My Bag?‘.  Check it out via YouTube below. 

Stepping in as a rare voice of protest music, Julian recently chatted to Lee Camp, the controversial host of the TV show ‘Redacted Tonight’ (you can watch that here). Described by George Carlin’s daughter Kelly as “a lot like my father” and by David Swanson as “like Howard Zinn after twelve beers,” Camp’s brand of thinking-man’s humor puts exploitation and political buffoonery on blast while uniting audiences with the power of roaring laughter. Lee will open for The Voidz at their upcoming shows this week in Dallas (October 5th w/ Phoenix) and Houston (October 6th).  

Formed 5 years ago now from a mutual love of the beat-driven and aggressive, as well as underground world, old jazz, and the avant-garde, The Voidz are a band that take pride in their versatility… Consisting of Jeramy Gritter (aka Beardo), a highly skilled and flavored guitarist as well as the self-proclaimed “trailer park hero”,Amir Yaghmai, virtuoso guitarist (grew up playing violin, then discovered metal), Alex Carapetis (aka Young Pirate) on drums – bringing a whole new level of rhythm to rock music. One of the founding members, Jeff Kite, a composer, on keyboards, alongside key spirit-guide, wordsmith and piano-king Jake Berkovici on bass and synths, the voice and wise, stabilizing anchor. And Julian Casablancas on vocals, as well as directing, curating and riding the lightning-wave put forth by this creative, talented, band of characters. A collaboration of mutual respect, founded on old friendships and musical kinship…
