Hoover 2nd LP

Not particularly exciting, but I just picked up the 2nd Hoover LP. I bought the first one (the classic 'Lurid Traversal Of Route 7') when it came out in 1994. The second one, I missed. I could have bought it from some distro for about £6 when it came out, but delayed, then it sold out. As is often the case, I kinda wanted it but never really felt the need to chase it hard. Then, somehow, about 12 years went by... and then one popped up on eBay and I decided that it was time to finally cross this one off the want list.

I saw this band play relatively recently. Well, I say that, but it was five years ago now. December 2004. I went to the show on my own. Felt lonely and old. Sat there & didn't say a word to anyone all night. Watched Hoover then went home. Fun.

I still like Hoover, don't know why people rag on them so much. My favorite record was the split they did with Lincoln.

I saw them on that tour in Nottingham - played for over an hour but had my attention the whole time, really good performance.
