Hose is an "artcore" band from the 1980s founded by producer and Def Jam creator Rick Rubin. Hose's 12-inch EP was the first recording released with the Def Jam logo.
Hose was founded at NYU Weinstein Dorm by Rick Rubin, Warren Bell, Joel Horne, Rick Rosen, this early "artcore" band was often touted as the East Coast's answer to Flipper. The band's slow-paced, blues-influenced sound was mostly designed and produced by Rubin, who embodied the best of the era's DIY attitude that continued on to his later career as a top record producer and rock tastemaker.
The band also played and toured heavily at this time, sharing the stage with the likes of Hüsker Dü, the Meat Puppets, the Circle Jerks, Red Kross, Shark Attack and MDC.
The cover art is a copy of "Tableau II" by Mondrian
Pieter Cornelis "Piet" Mondriaan, (after 1906 Mondrian) was a Dutch painter.
Mondrian was a contributor to the De Stijl art movement and group, which was founded by Theo van Doesburg. He evolved a non-representational form which he termed neoplasticism. This consisted of white ground, upon which he painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colors.
Mondrian's arrival in Paris from the Netherlands marked the beginning of a period of profound change. He encountered experiments in Cubism and with the intent of integrating himself within the Parisian avant-garde removed an 'a' from the Dutch spelling of his name.
