LEATHERFACE

 

Leatherface is a relatively obscure but critically acclaimed and highly influential British band from Sunderland fronted by Frankie Stubbs. The band is known for an eclectic style spanning American folk music, hardcore punk, post-hardcore and Dischord-style early emo.

Formed in August 1988, Leatherface has released eight full-length albums.

 

Rubber Factory Records released a tribute album to Leatherface in 2008 featuring 41 tracks by over 35 artists from several different countries who were influenced by the band including Hot Water Music, In The Red, Radon, The Sainte Catherines and The Dukes of Hills of Hillsborough.

It was issued as a double cd in a card gatefold jacket and was limited to just 2000 copies.
