Cabled Linear Traction by Hood on Slumberland Records

Hood - Cabled Linear Traction


  • £10.99

Hood were a prolific band from Leeds, formed in 1990 by brothers Richard and Chris Adams. Their knack of combining lo-fi noise inventiveness with an indie-songwriting brilliance, led them to become one of the most beloved and respected bands in the UK underground. Along with bands like Flying Saucer Attack, they helped create a new vocabulary in raw-experimentation and 4-track tape manipulation that held genuine emotional weight, outsider-pop appeal, and a rural post-rock foresight. 
Cabled Linear Traction was originally issued in a small vinyl-only edition on Fluff Records in 1994 before being repressed in the US by Slumberland in 1995. This CD reissue was released in 1999.
