...Originally released in 1996, this debut album got immediate attention and praise when the band’s debut single “2Wicky” got included in the soundtrack for Bernardo Bertolucci’s movie “Stealing Beauty” ft. Liv Tyler and Jeremy Irons. ....
I got turned on to Hoover later renamed Hooverphonic from listening to a weekly Ambient/techno music show
hosted by a young co-ed on the low power college station wrse 88.7 elmhurst iLL. in the school year 1996-'97.
Before the bad effects of the telecomm act of 1996 took its toll on terrestrial radio, there was lots of new and indi
music to be heard.
Living about 10 - 15 miles west of the station I would not always get a clear signal, but would always listen, and sometimes record (onto VHS tapes) the 7-10pm tuesday nite show.
I went to see Stealing Beauty on the big screen, and still have the Soundtrack CD. Lots of other great music in that film.
Life's distractions maybe are the reason I forgot to get their debut CD.
I do remember really liking 2Wicky though.
