Falcon Boy: A Fairly Hopeless Hero Volume 1: 14

‘SpiDer HiDer’

SpiDer HiDer are two mysterious sisters who have no relatives, have never been seen in public and do all their business through their official website http://www.spiderhider.pop.

With the tyrannically troubling sound of a tinny toy keyboard break beat cranked up to way beyond 190 beats per minute, SpiDer HiDer use their songs as a platform to talk about the kind of things that trouble young children everywhere.

‘No-one Can Hear Me’ and ‘Please Listen’ received a reasonable number of downloads but it was ‘Can’t You Hear Me Shouting REALLY LOUD’ that really captured the imagination of young children everywhere.

Angsty and angry in the kind of tantrumy way that children can easily understand, ‘Can’t You Hear Me Shouting REALLY LOUD’ has now established itself as one of the genre’s most enduring anthems. I’m pretty sure that by now most people will have heard it. Just in case you haven’t and you are wondering what all the fuss is about the words go like this:

I think that you can’t hear me

So I’m shouting REALLY LOUD

I don’t want to have you near me

So I’m shouting REALLY LOUD

REALLY LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m shouting REALLY LOUD

REALLY LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m shouting REALLY LOUD

Can’t you hear ME shouting?

REALLY LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

REALLY LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

REALLY LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

REALLY LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

REALLY LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As you can imagine, listening to SpiDer HiDer can be a disorienting experience. Whether full of daring or just plain unlucky, were you to sit through their entire first album without taking a suitable break between tracks then you would probably regret it.

This is not to say that the particular power of SpiDer HiDer is only limited to humans. Other mammals fare little better, especially considering that some of the frequencies found in the average SpiDer HiDer track are way beyond the capacity of the average human ear.

If you ever find yourself face to face with a dog licking bitter salty tears from its own eyes, then you can guarantee that someone has played it a SpiDer HiDer song.

He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at You can also find him on Twitter @BarnabyFTaylor.
