Hidden Library

Someone over at Ripped In Glasgow Basefook page has been looking for the Hidden Library 7″ singles that Andrew Weatherall released via the Rotters Golf Club website back in 2002. I posted all four sides two years ago but the links have long expired so I’ll stick these up again. Limited to 500 copies of each these two records were mail order only. As far as I know Hidden Library 001 doesn’t exist (or only existed in a very small run) and was perhaps played on a Two Lone Swordsmen radio show. Hidden Library 002 was two sides of Weatherall/Tenniswood hip-hop influenced electronica, good if inessential.

Hidden Library 003 was credited to Jnr Poon. Exactly whose alias this was I’ve never been entirely sure. Buzzy, electric, snarly, catchy; Lord Of The Hornets is a personal favourite, a record I’ve inflicted on paying customers when djing to support a band. It is a cover of a Robert Calvert song, a man barking even by Hawkwind standards. The B-side I don’t really like at all.

Robert Calvert ‘Lord Of The Hornets’

Odd but good- Hawkwind offshoot Robert Calvert’s Lord Of The Hornets.

‘Asleep in a hive in the base of a hollow tree
Behind a shed in a garden in Norbury
And when he whispers commands in his megaphone
They swarm to his call and he knows that he’s not alone

He’s lord of the hornets’
