THESE NEW PURITANS ARE A BAND FROM ESSEX, ENGLAND.
FORMED BY TWIN BROTHERS GEORGE BARNETT AND JACK BARNETT.
 
ORIGINALLY FROM SOUTHEND-ON-SEA, THEY PLAYED MUSIC TOGETHER AS CHILDREN.. AND STARTED TO RECORD MUSIC TOGETHER AT A YOUNG AGE, WHEN THEIR OLDER BROTHER TOM HANDED THEM A FOUR-TRACK TAPE RECORDER. THE NEXT MOVE WAS TRYING HARD AT RIPPING APART APHEX TWIN + MAKING ELECTRONICA, UNDER THE NAME MICK THE ASBESTOS (C.2000). YEARS PASSED.. THEY CONTINUED TO MAKE MUSIC, AND EVENTUALLY FOUND A PLACE THEY COULD PLAY ‘LIVE MUSIC’, THE ROYAL HOTEL, SOUTHEND-ON-SEA, SO THEY FORMED A BAND.
 
TNP RELEASED THEIR DEBUT ALBUM BEAT PYRAMID (2008), AGED 72 / 4 = 18: CIRCULAR, FAST RHYTMS, REPETITIVE LYRICS AND FRACTURED FIELD RECORDINGS. HIDDEN (2010) DEFIED EXPECTATIONS, WITH BRUTAL JAPANESE TAIKO DRUMS, DANCEHALL RHYTHMS AND AUSTERE WOODWIND. THEN AFTER APPEARING ON BJÖRK’S BASTARDS REMIX ALBUM + TOURING EAST ASIA, TNP RELEASED THE INTRICATE, CINEMATIC FIELD OF REEDS (2013) AND A 64-PIECE LIVE VERSION FOLLOWED, E–X-P-A-N-D-E-D (LIVE AT THE BARBICAN) (2014).
 
IN 2015, THEY MOVED TO BERLIN TO BEGIN WORK ON THEIR FOURTH ALBUM IN A FORMER GDR BROADCASTING STUDIO. LATER THAT YEAR JACK CONTRIBUTED TO CURRENT 93’S I AM THE LAST OF ALL THE FIELD THAT FELL (A CHANNEL). IN 2016 TNP PRODUCED THE MUSICAL SCORE FOR THE FIRST AUTHORISED PRODUCTION OF ALDOUS HUXLEY’S BRAVE NEW WORLD.

Hidden Live was a series of concerts of Hidden.
Fully realised with an expanded orchestral / band / electronic / found–sound group.
 
Jack was contacted by conductor André de Ridder about the idea of an integral performance
of Hidden from start to finish, and whether such a thing was physically possible..
The line–up consisted of 12 woodwind/brass (bass clarinet, bassoon, contrabassoon, baritone horn
etc etc), 2 percussionists (taiko drums, vibraphones, live foley techniques, knives + chains),
expanded drum–kits and children’s choir..
 
Hidden Live occurred at:
Barbican (London) .. Pompidou Centre (Paris) .. Hebel Am Ufer (Berlin) ..
De Singel (Antwerp) .. Crossing Border (Den Haag) .. SOS (Murcia)
