Hoover - Hoover EP (1997)

Hoover has always been my favorite of the whole DC/Discord scene. This is a reunion record they did after their classic "The Lurid Traversal Of Route 7." Members went on to numerous great bands including Regulator Watts, Radio Flyer, Abeline, The Crown Hate Ruin and June Of 44. The stand out for me is Weeds which is a different version of a song off of Lurid which bass-line reminds me of a old Bauhaus song that I can't remember the name of. I'll take it over Fugazi myself.


  1. I looked up this band a few days ago after reading their article, which I was linked to on Still Life's wikipedia, and didn't really love the songs on their myspace. Then I saw this here ( I was looking for a Lowercase album) and decided to check these guys out on youtube again. And now, I'm fuckign downloading this. Great post.

  2. I am a big Fugazi fan but if you'll take this over them I'm gonna give it a shot and download "blind" as it were...if you don't hear from me again on this post you can assume it hit the spot ! cheers man.

  3. Yeah the music it's awesome I really like to hear this, and my opinion of the cover it's... great! simple but great I love it, it's kind of emo but what the hell ;D
