Cable - Variable Speed Drive

Label: Doghouse
Year: 1996

Right in the thick of the mathy, destructo-core of the mid 1990's there was Cable. A self loathing Connecticut based wrecking crew that fused a Rollins era Black Flag with Tim Singer era Deadguy, and at least in the beginning, some vein popping Groundwork styled hardcore. Potent stuff. Unfriendly, caustic, potent stuff. Later the band would carve out a more sludgy, wide open riffing style, but this first album goes straight for the throat with no detours and no delay.
Members who played in this version of the band were also in, Isis, Empty Flowers, and Hex Inverter.
