Biography

There are at least four artists which use this name:
1. A noisecore / sludge band from the United States
2. An alternative rock band from the United Kingdom
3. An alternative rock duo from NYC
4. A drum and bass producer

1) Cable is an American band formed in 1994 in Rockville, CT. Though they have changed their style over the years, Cable was originally part of the first wave of bands playing in the so-called style (as it later became known), combining a / aesthetic with a rhythmically complex, often discordant metal-influenced musical approach. Lineup changes and delays between recordings may have hindered their notoriety over the years, but Cable is respected and acknowledged as influential within their scene, even though other bands within it have become better known.

The Rockville, CT, quartet formed in 1994, at which time it consisted of Randy Larsen, Vic Szalaj, Matt Becker, and Jeff Caxide (who later went on to join Isis). By the time of their debut album, 1997’s “Variable Speed Drive” (), Bernie Romanowski had replaced Caxide, briefly solidifying the lineup of Szalaj on drums, Larsen on bass and vocals, and Romanowski and Becker on guitars.

After a couple of EPs, the band’s second full-length (and first for the trend-setting label ), “Gutter Queen”, was released in 1999. Cable was down to just a three-piece for Gutter Queen, with Becker having left by this point.

    I was wondering the same, but looks like it's back to normal. Oh, and if you didn't realize the album closer to 'Northern Failures' is a Marshall Tucker Band cover (fucking love that track). Ahh, good ol' southern rock.

    Northern Failures is the 'catchiest' so to speak. the overall tone is more upbeat as well. and a fucking great sing-along album closer
