Leatherface

Formed in Sunderland, Tyne & Wear in the late '80s, and taking their name from the central masked character in cult classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Leatherface remain relatively unknown within their own town, let alone country. Yet a body of American supporters (the most vociferous being the inimitable Jack Rabid of The Big Takeover) have been singing the band's praises since the 1992 release of the under-promoted Mush.

Formed in Sunderland, Tyne & Wear in the late '80s, and taking their name from the central masked character in cult classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Leatherface remain relatively unknown within their own town, let alone country. Yet a body of American supporters (the most vociferous being the inimitable Jack Rabid of The Big Takeover) have been singing the band's praises since the 1992 release of the under-promoted Mush. However, by December 1993, following the release of Minx, the band began to break up, leaving Stubbs and drummer Andrew Laing to complete their final mini-album, The Last. Stubbs worked on a number of projects, including releases as Pope and Jesse. However, interest in Leatherface (mainly prompted by the reputation of Mush) eventually led to the reissue of the group's earliest recordings — Cherry Knowle (1989) and Fill Your Boots (1990). Leatherface reformed in 1998, and the following year completed their first tour of America, releasing a split album with touring partners Hot Water Music for BYO. « hide
