Barcelona based independent label BCore Disc has announced the limited edition re-release of HOOVER‘s self-titled EP, released in 1998 via Slowdime Records. The record was remastered from the original tapes by Victor Garcia at Ultramarinos Mastering (Barcelona, Spain) and can be heard below. Listen and head over here to read an exclusive interview with the band’s Joseph Redmond.
Hoover are a secret, exposed in a concurrent display cabinet, they are like finding a revealing clue in a place you’ve visited a thousand times. They are the missing link to understand the characteristic sound from Washington D.C’s early 90’s.
How many times have you wished to know what your favourite bands would sound like today if they had never split up? Hoover decided to answer that question in 1997 by reuniting in the same studios they recorded their debut album in. The event took place at WGNS, under producers Geoff Turner and Juan Carreras’ supervision, and consisted in recorded unpublished songs that they had only played live, and to experiment after three years of accumulating new influences.
On the 1st of January 1998, Slowdime published 2000 copies of their last untitled album. They only needed DeSoto to complete the trinomial of discographies, key elements of that time, that sound and that place.
