Hiding Out

The lockdown is having some weird effects on people. I’m feeling spacey and forgetful. Other people are angry, still others are numb. One thing we have in common is that anyone with a lick of sense is Hiding Out.

Pete Townshend wrote Hiding Out for his 1985 album, White City.  I listened to that album incessantly after it came out. I was recovering from a different sort of trauma and it spoke to me. It still does.

We have multiple versions of Hiding Out for your listening pleasure. The studio original, a live version from the legendary Deep End concert, and an extended techno version, which was originally released only in Germany. It sounds like something Dieter would have put on Sprockets.
