There once was a band called IMF, which later transmogrified into an entity known as the Hidden. In early 1991 I joined as guitar player for what became a stable line-up also featuring Paul McLennon on vocals, Zackary Webb on bass, and Erik Peterson on drums. Featured below is the full discography of these bands - both before I joined up as well as all material I recorded with the band(s). Audio files are VBR level two mp3s - so if you do not have broadband please enjoy looking at the pictures...

This page is presented in chronological fashion and includes all audio files, album covers, band pictures, concert flyers, reviews, and set lists that I have in my archive.

Enjoy!
