We lied

Is it just me, or are a lot of local bands going in a great direction right now?  My Bones and Organs comes to mind.  They keep adding slow and heaviness to their set, and I can’t get enough.  Well, last Friday we were called in by Brooker to do a surprise show at Rendezvous as part of the POST-grunge PDX-SEA Showcase (or, what I like to call the Showcase Showdown), and Greenriver Thrillers busted out some new material (or new to me) that upgraded their sound to be even more epic sounding.  So, it’s great to see things unfolding.  I think something’s about to explode.

Also great to hear Mongoloid Village bust out some excellent complicated and creative beats.  We were drunken talking about putting something together after the show, so perhaps we could do something in PDX, maybe with Drats or something.  We’ll see.

We ended the show with our own rendition of Young Liars by TV on the Radio:

Other random news:  We’re putting together some ideas for a video for (We’ll Never Be) Friends 4 Evr.  This won’t ever be completed, but when we die in a jet crash then someone should try to find it and complete it and make some money off of it.  And Joe has created offspring… and yet he pulls off the impossible black magic trick of continuing to rock.  Amazing.  Go Joe!

Thanks for coming out, and sorry Lanza for drowning you in my angst driven paranoid rant of nihilist cynacism. 

Hey, anything we should cover at our next show?

New song ~ (we’ll never be) friends 4EvR

In Hidden Number, News on August 16, 2009 at 2:29 am

We just wanted to alert the intertubes that our new song “(we’ll never be) friends 4EvR” is ready for realtime streaming and gushing pleasures. Spread the word! This is an early pre-master version, recorded at our favorite studio Magnets Large & Small, but we want to start getting these in people’s hands asap. It’s been 2 years, right?  Additionally, you can find this song on iLike, Facebook, sonicbids, and (eventually) our main website [links to all of these are down at the very bottom of this blog]. 

This song is influenced by the usual amount of dread and loathing that we live in fear of, as usual.  Also note the use of Dean’s theramin, and the first major appearence of Josh in a Hidden Number recording.  Here is a picture by our friend, Winslow, as illustration.

So what do you think?  Do you like the direction we’re headed with this arrangement?

Update:  We’re now on SoundCloud ~
