Hose.Got.Cable - Antidisestablishmentarianismesque 7"x2

Label: Tenderizer
Year: 1994

Bands in the early 90s who had the gall to release double 7"s are few and far between. And by taking the longest word in the dictionary (not technically...technically that word is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovovolcanoconiosis) and then adding MORE letters to it just to do it...well, that sorta tells you what kind of people you're dealing with.
Off kilter post hardcore, or maybe just hardcore, that pays homage to their neighbors to the north in Baltimore and D.C. (the Great Unraveling repost below made me think of this one...just to give you an idea). Unheralded in their time, but well worth your investigation now as trailblazers in the cause to liberate hardcore from the tough guys of the world, but keep it acerbic and wry. You can hear why Sam McPheeters would want to relocate to Richmond, VA to get in with bands like this one taking the approach Born Against did and marrying that with the math-y tendencies of Universal Order Of Armageddon. But, you also can't deny the hometown Avail influence on the final track of the record "Fill Up", and that ain't a bad thing either.
Sorely underrated. Highly enjoyable.
