Destruction Unit Void
This LP came out as a promo tape pre-release on Phoenix’s Ascetic House, which is the first indication I had they’d reconfigured the band and that members of Avon Ladies had stepped forward to help steer. Whereas you could put the early DU stuff at a party, this would not fly with company. Death To The Old Flesh had a great deal of Memphis in it, which is to say it had a great deal of Jay in it, so to hear the results of Ryan’s desert fried guitar overdose you’re confronted with an entirely different band. I commend the decision to continue rolling with the name, because fuck it, this is way better than anything he’s done before. This is some dismal, brooding American psychedelia, modern psych, debt and war psych.
