Okay, enough teasing guys, I know you’ve got footage from at least one show from the Hidden Live tour. Hand over the goods, don’t make me set Mark E Smith on you. Seriously, I’ll do it, and that guy knows no boundaries, he will DESTROY you. Just imagine this face leaning over bloody visage, yeah, that’s what I thought. Speaking of that footage, you can see it above, it details in video form Jack Barnett and his rag-tag group of elite super soldiers (bandmates) when they took a little time to reappropriate a few older TNP cuts and add in some stunning orchestration for your discerning ears to wrap themselves around. The result bridges the gap between the angular, intense abstract art rock found on their début and the deeply orchestrated, dancehall inspired masterpiece of a sophomore release ‘Hidden’ which means you should have already pressed play at least one by now, maybe even twice if you’re feeling that way out.
Get at it above, and when you’re feeling good and ready you can head over here to download a live version of Hidden performed live in Berlin. Oh, how the world shines on us.
