Originally well known performers on the Manchester scene in the early 2010s The Hidden Gem hung up their boots in 2015 with members going their separate ways, most notably vocalist/guitarist Danny Cusick forming the band KIT B. After a short-ish retirement they are back with a brand new vinyl only release single with plans for a CD later in the year. Known for their melodic and insanely catchy tunes the band is releasing their first formal single via German Shepherd Records. The band is Danny Cusick – vocal and guitar, Paul Smith – guitar, Barrie Reilly – bass, Craig Bodell – keyboards and Mark Robertson – drums.
ABOUT THE NEW RELEASE
LSITW aka ‘The Loudest Silence In The World’ is live favourite from back in the day. With driving drums, an immense Hanleyesque bass-line from Barrie Reilly and an engaging melody and dynamic changes this is pure Manc. pop. The lyrics concern the Scuttling Gangs that formed in working class areas of Manchester, Salford, and the surrounding townships during the late 19th century. WTF aka What The Fuck is not safe for radio (clearly). Lyrics concern stalkers of media types and how their devotion can turn quite suddenly to hatred at some perceived slight.
GERMAN SHEPHERD RECORDS KENNEL CLUB SUBSCRIBERS WILL GET AN EXCLUSIVE DIGITAL ADVANCE COPY OF THE SINGLE ON APRIL 21st
