The Hideho's - 41 Years without Sex7 songs by the countryband that never was
In 1991, at the Intree Committee of the University of Amsterdam, four committee members decided to team up as a countryband. Just for fun at first - to play bars and more serious gigs at company parties at a later stage.
The Hideho's toured around Holland in this way, from 1991 to 1993 - in which year they broke up due to musical and organizational differences. By that time, however, the band had expanded to include an extra guitar player, Barry Webb, and a violinist, Lucas 'Amor' Jansen, and to woo gig attendees with five-vocal harmonies.
The Hideho's produced two demo tapes, of which this is the first. Humorously named '41 Years without Sex' (its successor, released a year onward, even more humorously was named '42 Years without Sex'), it was taped using a single microphone and cheap cassette deck, in the general meetingroom of Intree, which at the time was the ground (wooden) floor of Prinsenhofsteeg 5 in Amsterdam.
It was mixed and produced in Studio 'The Flowerhouse', in Haarlem.
Pray forgive the poor quality - the only copy in my possession was on an old, and much worn original tape.
