Between 1982 & 2002 PETE HOPE plied his trade as uncompromising & inventive vocalist & musician with Sheffield’s Industrial Avant-Garde & Experimental Post Punk Sonic Steelworkers.
Crossing genres from the rapid-fire post punk squall of THE BOX to the unleashing of RICHARD H. KIRK’S Heaviest Hour with HOODOO TALK, then the Classic avant-garde document of social, domestic & industrial collapse that is DRY HIP ROTATION (with Jono ‘KUMO’ Podmore) & the Warped Blues sample manipulations of FLEX 13 with chief collaborator & unflinching left-field Legend CHARLIE COLLINS.
More latterly he fought to dismember the dance music concept with blistering slabs of disturbed contempt, this time in allegiance with DJ PARROT as both HOODOO & ultimately WHITE TRASH (Refreshingly obnoxious affront to humanity; albeit one that floors you! - Steven Wells NME).
After 20 years & over 30 releases HOPE severed all connections & moved to the Outer Hebrides to pit himself against the world’s oldest rock and the elements that shape it.
But now it's time to get back in the saddle & start playing rodeo with the Apocalyptical Horsemen
:.......The Exploding Mind / Padre Diablo / Faux Pa / Captain Muthaship / or Pedro Trash.
Grow old gracefully?......... FUCK NO.
The Schizophrenic Numbskull is just Getting Started.
Update November 2014
Since the birth of Wrong Revolution in 2011 there have been 18 releases, making new and back catalogue CDs & Cassettes available. There have been some great reissues via Klanggalerie and new work with Parrot (under the Shangri-Lies guise) and collaborations with new friends via Vienna (DER BLUTHARSCH / MUSHROOMS PATIENCE). From the Outer Hebrides HOPE relocated to Vienna for 6 months & then returned to Sheffield for a year before moving to New Zealand at the end of 2013, from where he's still managed to be represented on 5 releases despite other commitments with the setting up of (and working in) a family bakery!
It sure ain't over..... The only time we ever really have is NOW.
Form, fashion & any other mind made restriction will not hold the WRONGNUSS back... Onwards, Inwards, Outwards & Sideways... Keep bending the bars.
