Garbage Day: Leftovers, Orphans, Lost Causes, and Guilty Remnants 2004 - 2010

The Hiders

‘Garbage Day’ : Leftovers, orphans, lost causes, and guilty remnants. 2004-2010

‘Garbage Day’ is collection of demos, outtakes, and leftovers performed and recorded by various incarnations of The Hiders from 2004 to 2010. Some of the tracks pre-date The Hiders’ first release ‘Valentine’ from ( 2006 ) and lead up to the release of our third album ‘Four Letter Town’ ( 2010 ).

A very talented cast and crew have all walked through the swinging doors into ‘Hidertowne’ and have all had great careers before, during, and after. To name a few , original co-vocalist Lisa Walker went on to form Wussy . Tyler Ramsey would eventually spend several years with Band of Horses . John Curley and Michael Horrigan were and are members of the legendary Afghan Whigs . Brad Meinerding and Ric Hordinski are both well known and respected as musicians but also for their work with Over The Rhine . Sylvia Mitchell , aside from sitting in with a list of bands too long to mention plays viola with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. World famous session musician Fats Kaplin makes an appearance here. And then there's Beth Harris , the longest standing Hider member , most recently seen making a name for herself out in the world singing with Erika Wennerstrom of Heartless Bastards.

A special mention of Jerry Hedge, a great talent and personality who sadly passed recently and left a great void in our Cincinnati music scene.

There’s much more gold to be mined from over fifteen years of gigging and recording and much more to come but in the meantime, please enjoy this collection.
