Haircut 100 - Hidden Years Lyrics




I know you're here
You won't come out
Below the water line
Now where's my glove to keep the germs at bay
So safe up here
My air is clean
Recycle
Rarify
Down in the street
Deep breathe your life away
Relive the hidden years
Won't clutch at straws again - whiter than white in the home!

One Midas touch and zeros grow
Guilt edge and two points down
In touch but out of mind in pleasure dome
Through hungry years and scraping skies
Collided with the stars
I framed your face
You lit the silver Hughes!
Relive the hidden years (in vain)
Won't clutch at straws again - whiter than white in the home!

Relive the hidden years (in vain)
Won't clutch at straws again - whiter than white in the home!

Haircut 100 Hidden Years Comments
  1. poorshakes

    The singing is fine, if a bit anonymous, Marc lacks a distinctive quality. The musicianship is fine too, but the songs and hooks of Nick are missing.

  2. arytmis

    can't help but hear Debarge in here.. (Hidden Years)

  3. Peter Ott

    Wonderful album, great songs, catchy melodies. Where is a time machine to go back?

  4. Kiyomi S

    I love this album now and forever.
    from Japan

  5. JJ Massie

    one of the most underrated album...brilliant stuff

  6. yourocka6978

    This album is so amazing!
    I was teen when this album released. I listened it over and over. Thank you!

    How many bands and albums that flopped / untimely split-up or should have a chance to making more good music as they deserve. Feeling bad that "Paint and Paint" didn't get a success because music listeners / critics mainly think "Nick's gone now, No need to care it" and kill their career. Sometimes music industry wasn't the main problem. But the problem came from the music listeners themselves who never opened their mind and killed the band career who once their favorite.

    i thought without Nick this would suck but it's actually quite good!

  9. Bill Navarro

    Nothing against Nick Heyward, but this album is better than the first one

    Kidwaryod Production

    The band sound was very unique. Very lively and jazzy that no one can do like them.

    ねじかかこう

    OH! Great! HAGESHIKUDOOI! I was thinking so, for 30years!

    nitroxsam66

    Its OK. NH was in the midst of his breakdown and didn't turn up for much of the sessions. Thev were attempting to write songs like Heywood, but the band was in decline. This album doesn't have the sheer joy, liveliness and spontaneity of PW. To me it sounds a bit forced, as they were probably feeling the pressure to produce another great record, but were lacking a key element. JMO.

    #468 for July 2017,
    page 101
    (damn,NOT page 100!) reviewed by Marc Ellicott
    My review of Elliott's review (who gave P&P 2 out of 5 stars ) - I give the reviewer one fifth of a star.
    It's very hard sometimes for a band to recover from the loss of a lead singer, but Nick Hayward 's stupid move to go solo, forced the band to find somebody compatible and I think they did with Marc Jones.
    Elliott refers to it as interesting, gives credit for H-CUT to "solider on," but then states, " hearty confidence, but little true sparkle."
    I think Elliott, has "Pelican West" playing in his mind the whole time while trying to be reviewing P & P.If YOU like HAIRCUT 100, you will probably like PAINT & PAINT.

  11. Roger A. Mueller

    My gosh, this is great! First time hearing this great follow-up album. Thanks for posting! (I have to go buy this on Amazon now.)

  12. Clarke Martty

    must disagree with most of the positive comments, here. what we have, here, is a classic case of a production (with a good band, yes) in search of SONGS. there has not be a clearer instance of the songwriter being missing: nick heyward is SORELY SORELY missed, here!!! to me the difference between Pelican and this album is MANY MILES FROM HOME!! what can i tell you?!? many miles...(in their own words).

    John Kavanagh

    Liked the first album...and nicks solo efforts...but (to me) this is better than both...Infatuation is the best song of all Haircut 100 efforts..... I feel I’m right but might be wrong.

  13. economy electrics

    this is a fantastic album. easily as good as pelican was 2 years earlier.(1982).. Paint & Paint from 1984 is amazing........Cant wait for it to be re-issued again on CD format......... the songs, vocals, and musicianship  are FANTASTIC......p-s- Les Neme's is an incredible bass player. He has a style all of his own........

  14. TOMMASO POLLANO

    Mr Nemes you are really a great bass player. Congratulations!

  15. captainautumn1

    An superb album that was unfairly overlooked on its release and has stood the test of time amazingly well. The thing with Haircut 100 was that you had superb musicians who all brought something different to the mix. The result was Inventive, funky, melodic and fun. The charts were a pretty crowded place in 1984 but it seems a real shame in retrospect that the same people that purchased Pelican West in their droves lost faith in Haircut 100 Mark II, or should that be Marc Fox ...........

  16. OldJockRadio

    I can see why this didn't fly.

    TimRandyHo

    I always think that the mixing of this album could be better.

    Adrian DeVore

    It was bit a ahead of its time. I remembered buying this LP as an import because it wasn't released in America. After hearing it back in 1984, I absolutely hated it except for "High Noon" since I loved the guitar and bass riffs. As I am listening to again in in 2017, it was less painful to hear but I  (then and now) didn't like Mark Fox's vocals.

  17. LESLIE NEMES BASS

    Just to say that we are currently in talks about re-issuing this album in the new year. Thank you for your kind comments.

    James Jr

    Great news - - hopefully the reissue will be in expanded format with 12" extended versions & b-sides included.

    Lesley White

    never knew 9f his album would of bought it...haircut 100 mad...nick etc

    S.C. Beatty

    Travis Davis

    27Spliffy

  18. americo tomaz
