I'm So Hollow · Emotion/Sound/Motion,LP,1981 ,UK

I'm so Hollow was one of the many bands that formed in 1978. The "Hollow" sound came after several months of practice sessions in the cellar at Joe Sawicki's parents house. They played their first gig with ClockDVA in the Penthouse Club in Sheffield. Many gigs followed with bands like Vice Versa and their biggest gig at the Leeds Futurama festival in 1980, of which a clip is shown in 'Made in Sheffield'
They released their first single in 1981 and signed up with llluminated Records soon afterwards. In September, just before the release of their album 'Emotion/Sound/Motion', they decide to split up feeling they had achieved their ambitions with I'm so Hollow.

Thanks a lot for this! I was really impressed by them in the brief clips in Made In Sheffield. By the way, do you have anything by Architects Office?

A brilliant record from a band that was forgotten until the Sheffield film. Thank God I have this and their other tracks to warm the cockles on cold nights.
