A poem for September

In Hidden Number, News, Random, Shout Outs on October 10, 2010 at 9:14 pm

In September we did not play

But steeled within the studio all day

And steadily mixed all of Side A.

 

Josh was listening to Beethoven

Dean was watching Mater Suspiria Vision (very NSFW!)

And Kai had many a drum lesson.

Now let us focus on Side B

And gather Staunts’ deft artistry

for March’s record release party

fin.

We leave you with this special remake (NSFW!)

… and happy birthday to Joe!

Delightful tunes for your pleasure

In Shout Outs on February 20, 2010 at 6:54 pm

Well, the boys of Hidden Number are at it again.  They’ve just returned from a field trip across this great internet of ours, to seek out some wonderful ditties to play at your next cocktail party.  And boy are they doozies!

Collection of videos, after the break…

Hidden Number live at the Sunset Tavern, 4pm, Sunday July 19th, $6, 21+

Hidden Number live at Sunset Tavern, 4pm Sunday July 19th, 2009

The title sez it all.  Yet, dare I also mention that we’re  opening for My Bones and Organs and The Keeper?!  I dare.  Note the very excellent time on Sunday, which will give everyone plenty of time to get home so that they write that important report due Monday.  Please include charts and graphs.  How else will you stay competitive in this economic climate?  We are staying competitive by throwing in some Misfits songs in our set.

Dare I also direct you to a top notch video of our Tom Petty cover of “Don’t Come Around Here No More” posted by Chris?  Double dared.

We at Hidden Number hope your Independence Day (or plain vanilla Saturday) was a festive occasion.  A few of us spent time on the very boat from whence came Manos de Plata’s  brand new album, and watched the Seattle fireworks bobbing upon the waters of Lake Union.  We stood in the very chamber in the belly of the Sea Devil, and I double dog dare say that the reverb was palpable.  I hope you appreciate that the next time you listen.

June retrospective

In Events, Hidden Number, Reviews, Shout Outs on June 28, 2009 at 4:38 pm

Okay, so everyone is telling us that our previous show at the Nectar show was one of the best sounding shows we’ve had, so congratulations to the sound guy!  And a huge thank you to everyone who stuck around to the very end.  And let’s thank Mauricio, who set the whole thing up.  I’m sure your faces were in agony from all the laughs preceding us; not to mention being substantially exhausted from Canadian funnyman Brad Brake, who somehow ended up being shirtless in a thong by the end of the show, right?  Were we at the same show?  I’m pretty sure that’s what I was seeing, and it hurt.  How does one follow up that kind of energy?  By having an excellent sound system, and a professional running it.  I’m voting for this as my favorite venue to play at to date, although sometimes it’s all about the moment.  Anyway, Sir Christian Staunts got us on video, so we’re going to see if we can’t just jam that straight into the tubes, if you do not mind our endulgence.   So keep your RSS feed readers hungry and alert.

For those of you who are wondering what the heck happened in the middle of the set, that was Joe singing a song that we reserve only when Dean is under the influence of the BSOD (i.e. UIBSOD).  So that was in fact three never before heard ditties:  Mesopotamia (B-52s), Don’t Come Around Here No More (Tom Petty), and Untitled (Joe Stuhff).

Since the show, we were informed by Jim of an elequent review of the show  that adds some context to the evening’s festivities.

It was a great cap, to a productive month.  We’ve knocked out a substantial amount of drum & bass tracks, and are one session away from posting Friends 4 Ever publicly, because we like you.

Upcoming show:  We are grabbing a shift along side My Bones and Organs at the Sunset,  Sunday July 19th.  It’s an early show, but that’s good because it’s about time that you got some sleep before work on Monday, you loitering hooligan.

Maid in Fresno

Our illustrious Dean aka Pope Supremesus has allied himself with Mademoiselle X aka Virginia Dare to bring you a collection tracks that smother you in sexy feelings of loneliness and enlightenment. 

Milkmaid

In other news, we’re going camping this weekend.  Hopefully the whole thing will go down like a cross between Blair Witch and The Wicker Man.  x-fingers crossed-x

We’re sick

In Hidden Number, News, Reviews, Shout Outs on March 7, 2009 at 3:33 am

It happened.  We got sick.  And by sick, I mean siiiiiiiiiick.  So siiiiiiiick that (Sic) Things did a review of our last album, Burn Alive.

What do you think?  Do you agree with their assessment of our heaviness?

I have a terrific music collection

In Shout Outs on November 1, 2008 at 1:05 am

The title of this post is a phrase that you will be saying to yourself if you check out all the music that is getting recorded by my bandmate, Dean Swanson, at Magnets Large & Small studios.  He just started up a blog so that none of us can lose track of all he’s been up to.  I kind of wish we were playing with some of these bands…
