Hula formed in November 1980 and hailed from Sheffield, home of such electronic luminaries as The Human League, Cabaret Voltaire, and Chakk, to name but a few. Hula members Ron Wright, Alan Fish, and Mark Albrow allegedly lived with Cabaret Voltaire in an apartment aptly named the "Hula Kula." Hula's second album Murmur was released in 1984, only a year after its predecessor Cut from the Inside, and what a tour de force it is. Taking in elements of found sounds, cut-up, primitive sampling and industrial paranoia, they sculpted an unsettling but rhythmic mélange of sound. In part industrial funk, elsewhere, an atmospheric stew of dissonance and rhythm. Murmur is now reissued for the first time in nearly 30 years on vinyl in a limited edition of 300 copies on clear blue vinyl.
