Hum

"Matt Talbott tells me there's some Hum shows coming this fall! I don't have all the details yet, but here's what I know: there will be one on September 10th, and it won't be in Champaign. A show in Champaign is possibly going to be planned for September 9th, and they are playing Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX in November." -[h-u-m.net]
The above quote comes from a Hum fansite, and while we have yet to receive official word, it does seem within the realm of possibility considering that Hum have reunited occaisionally since officially dissolving in 2000. More news to come.

Hum released You'd Prefer an Astronaut in 1995 and the follow-up Downward Is Heavenward in 1998.

Though they haven't confirmed Hum, Fun Fun Fun Fest did recently "leak" some more of their Austin festival lineup. The first leak had Brian Posehn, Odd Future, Okkervil River, M83, and X (performing "Los Angeles"). The second leak added Reggie Watts, Flying Lotus, Tune-Yards, Ra Ra Riot and Kid Dynamite!

That now makes two upcoming shows for Kid Dynamite who are also playing FYF Fest in LA.

Great band.

But what's up with the FFF lineup? They always have a great lineup, but this one is weak? Tune Yards? Can't we forgo the hipster bands?

Best news I've seen on BV. Even if it's only a question mark at this point.

As a student at Univ of Illinois in the 90s, it was always great to see HUM and Honcho Overload, which Matt Talbot also played in. Check out Honcho if you don't know them--they were on Parasol Records. That was a strong music scene with a lot of innovation. Think I may have to book a trip to Austin.

That'd be pretty cool but the BIGGER question is, will the lead singer be wearing jean shorts since that has, unfortunately, become an ironic fad?

Who runs a HUM fansite?

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2011 9:23 AM

Someone who is a fan of Hum.

"Who runs a HUM fansite?"

Agreed. Whoever it is should be on some kind of government watch list. A possible danger to society.

I once paid HUM for a job, and I'm glad I came to see the end of it!

Did they ever have any songs besides "Stars?"

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2011 11:15 AM

That's a great question. No, they wrote and recorded one song, then broke up.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2011 11:20 AM

Listen to "You'd Perfer An Astronaut", señors.

"Did they ever have any songs besides "Stars?""

I guess you've never listened to their last album "Downward is Heavenward". One of my all time favorites and now seen as a lost gem of the 90's. Hopefully the reunion news is true and they play NYC.

WHO!?!?

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2011 11:52 AM

first song on the 'zebra' record is one of the greatest songs of all time... then the rest of the album is a major letdown.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2011 12:00 PM

this band ruled. all their records ruled. hope they come to NYC.

one of the greatest guitar bands on the 90s

Kid Dynamite really needs to play NYC...this is making me sad that their playing so far away

They also released Electra 2000 in 1993.
