New Song : OFF! : Upside Down

I’m sure I’d have no problem finding countless jazz aficionados to disagree with me (including my brother), but for my money, the illustrations Raymond Pettibon provided for the SST releases of the 70s and 80s are every bit as indelible and iconographic as Francis Wolff’s celebrated mid-century jazz photographs for Blue Note. Of course, I’m probably biased, seeing as how I treasure so many of those records, particularly those of Black Flag, and have even been known to don a My War or Loose Nut t-shirt from time to time.

Now try to imagine the sheer joy I felt seeing the cover art for 1st EP, then learning that OFF! features original Black Flag vocalist Keith Morris. On second thought, just forget it, because there’s no way you can imagine. Anyway, our pal over at Brooklyn Vegan debuted Upside Down yesterday and it feels like everything is going black all over again.

Now I’m going to rush through some details. Besides Morris, OFF! includes Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides), Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless, Hot Snakes, Rocket From the Crypt) and Steven McDonald (Redd Kross). 1st EP will be available as a 7-inch on October 12th, and on November 23rd, 1st EP will be re-released with 12 additional tracks as OFF!’s full length debut, First Four EPs. Now, let’s rip.
