Stop. I’m bleeding.
Album #: 09
Recording Dates: 1993
Release Date: 1993
This is the Hidden’s only “official” release, though I’ve filled in the gaps with a number of archive collections. “Stop. I’m bleeding.” took four tracks from the “Bone of Contention” EP and added six new slabs of freshly recorded thickness. This initial release for Iguana Trifle Recordings was not the great success all had hoped, but leaves behind the audio legacy of a punk band transforming into something quite diverse and at times exciting.
Five Track Sampler
Track 02 – The Legendary Bolt Upright (The Hidden) – This feedback drenched sludge rock number was a band favorite and seemed to go over well with the audiences we encountered. No social messages here – just pure raging identity crisis. [Scratch on Guitar]
Track 04 – Sucking on the Wind (Room to Breathe) (The Hidden) – Rarely played live and quite frankly forgotten about soon after recording, this two part number sounds like nothing else done by the band. [Scratch on Guitar]
Track 05 – The Blanket (The Hidden) – A tense and trippy tale of true love and torment (with a jazzy twist). [Scratch on Guitar]
Track 08 – (six-six) 69 Camaro (The Hidden) – If you’ve ever gone drag racing with Satan and then shared a Mai-Tai at the local dub bar then you’ll find this a familiar story. [Scratch on Guitar]
Track 09 – Tryptophan (The Hidden) – Just another obsession dirge celebrating the loss of all hope. [Scratch on Guitar]
