On May 7th, 2013 The Empty Bottle hosted one of the nastiest bills in the history of the venue –Chicago thrash upstarts Oozing Wound opening up for Black Pus, the raucous and otherworldly solo project of artist and drummer Brian Chippendale, whose All My Relations had been released just a month prior. Both bands played earth-shattering sets, leaving all in attendance in the kind of daze that is unique to extended exposure to incredible, and incredibly loud, music. The bond formed that night between the Pus and the Ooze was punapharmacy.com instant, and it wasn’t long before plans were set in motion for these kindred spirits to occupy the same slab of vinyl. The Black Pus/Oozing Wound split captures both bands energy in a raw form. Intended as a limited edition tour record, the split is not a mere raw blast, it shows a new side to Black Pus and is a teaser for the monster sophomore album from Oozing Wound being mixed in April 2014.
