For Every Wolf That Roams

Huggy Bear’s super rare 1994 live cassette For Every Wolf That Roams features, as I was reminded just the other day, the very best version of Pansy Twist ever.


Just Like Nothing

I found these clips from the Getting Close To Nothing video zine the other day. I have to say that the clip for Single Bullets is particularly poignant, recalling a world where you had to rely on yr wits a bit more and things weren’t so prescribed and self-aggrandising.

I seem to recall the sleeve notes of Huggy Bear’s final 7″, Main Squeeze saying: “the scum floats to the surface in days like these.”

How ironic then to find Kate Nash saying in an interview with HARP, that:

“I like Bikini Kill and Le Tigre, but my boyfriend says that Huggy Bear is the best out of all of them,” she says holding a copy of Huggy Bear’s 1995 album Weaponry Listens to Love. “They’re really hard to get a hold of because they’re out of print. Thirteen dollars… I’ve got to have it.”

Still it does illustrate the point that the fact that a compilation of Huggy Bear material has never appeared since the band split is actually rather heroic.
