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. They marked the course of a city that wasn’t even theirs, because even though drummer Christopher Farrall lived in a suburb of Mar yland, Fred Erskine, Joseph McRedmond and Alex Dunham, would converge from different coordinates: Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Arizona. With their arachnid and sibylline post-hardcore, it was obvious they would end up seducing Ian McKaye. Just one concert was all he needed to sign them up for a first single and their debut album The Lurid Traversal of Rte. 7 , at Dischord. They were active between 1992 and 1994, and then what? They broke up and split in many different directions: Abilene, June of 44, Regulator Watts, The Boom, The Crownhate Ruin, etc. But our story starts right here.
