Johnny Void and The Others Kickstarter!

by the partae
Johnny Void and The Others officially began in Tavares, Florida in January of 1994. Their first release, “Throat Oyster” (Feb, ’94) consisted of four tracks. After several months, and with a couple of lineup changes, Void, as they were known at the time, quietly stopped making music together.

But in the Spring of 1995, after a few months of living out in the streets of Los Angeles, Johnny Void returned to Florida reenergized and put together a new lineup! From that point on, Void would go on to disrupt the music scene with their hardcore punk rock sound, inspiring and influencing every band they met along the way! Following two more official studio releases and many shows, Void disbanded in the spring of 1996 during a live set at The Lion’s Den after Billy fell through the stage. But that didn’t mean they stopped playing music altogether.

Johnny Void went on to be a founding member of the Green Goblyn Project and X-Ray Youth, and now plays in DETHHAUS with drummer Justin Welch, of brit-pop royalty Elastica. Jason Burrows later joined the bands Unsung Zeros, Mashlin, and Boyce Avenue. Most of the other members went on to do many stints in jail or prison.

Void’s “3 Day War” LP was Ben Herlinger’s first producing credit. He went on to have a career producing music for BentMother and Bony Orbit records. He also did live sound for countless international acts for Walt Disney World. Many will know Bobby Croft for his years in the music scene, working with such acts as Hall and Oates, Smashing Pumpkins, The Allman Brothers, The Derek Trucks Band, Blind Melon, and many others.
