Ok, the first Void song borrows its riff from somewhere but I can't for the life of me remember where. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Welcome back, and as usual, thank you.

that would most probably be a Motors tune called "Airport" Eli... we were all produced by Bram Tchaikovski, who must have lurked in the shadows behind a couple of the bands as he had with Motors... :)

I am Graham, the Guitarist from the Void; the Riff was devised by Kim Fenton the singer, and I arranged the song. I doubt if Kim had thought about the motors song as he could only play "one finger guitar". However, your observation about the Airprot song is truer than you think; I spotted the similarity. During the recordign session, produced by Bram Tchaikovsky from the Motors himself, I proceeded to play "Airport" on the piano, over the top of this Void riff - I think I annoyed Bram - sorry mate
