Hide was a zine released in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in the 1980's.
Hide was a multimedia zine with each issue released in both zine form and accompanied by an audio compilation cassette, or 'mix tape'. The type of music featured in Hide, in both the zine and on the cassette, ranged from punk and industrial bands, to post punk and hardcore, and even more experimental music, sometimes of an electronic nature, such as tape loops, but sometimes acoustic. Five issues were released.
Hide releases are now collectors items, occasionally found for sale on-line, since they were issued in limited editions.
- Issue Three lists The Cramps and Ross McClaren on the cover.
- Issue Four lists The Fall and Glen Branca on the cover.
