Leicester bedroom anarchist Dom Goodchild The Void Starer is an outsider-punk of sorts. His music is a misanthropic spoken word stream of consciousness, as grotesquely compelling as a Francis Bacon painting, with the poetic dispair-rage of Charles Bukowski post three-day bender.

Dom Goodchild The Void Starer’s new single I Am Unco-operative Radio takes a defiant stab at what he describes as “‘the glossy, shallow cesspit of celebrity culture,” one that hinders its sycophantic followers from exeriencing the deeper, richer, more complex aspects of what it means to be human.

His high octane spoken word delivery wraps around your soul tugging at its darkest core, aided by the soundtrack of warped, eerie guitars that build to a menacing thunderous sound.

Dom Goodchild The Void Starer sound is influenced by punk, post-punk, industrial and black metal bands such as Swans, Throbbing Gristle, The Birthday Party, The Stooges, Leviathan and Nachtmystium, with his music recalling the irreverence of Mark E Smith, the snarl of post-punk poet John Cooper Clark, and the astute, anger-edged social commentary of Sleaford Mods (minus the danceable keyboard).

I am Unco-operative Radio is Dom Goodchild The Void Starer’s second single, following his debut In Bed With Humanity (June 2019). Somewhat befittingly his debut album was due for release in 2020, the year humanity was truly f**ked, and has since been rescheduled for 4 February 2022 on Void Starer Records/Cargo Rcords.
