HUGGY BEAR - SHIMMIES IN SUPER 8



This was a double 7" compilation released on Duophonic in 1993 in a limited edition of 1200.  Also on the comp were Stereolab, Colm & Darlin.  This release is really rare and I wouldn't want to battle Stereolab fans on an auction site for it.  These tracks are bedroom quality experiments in poetry, noise, and song.  The answering machine sample mentions the Hickey Underworld, something I remember Nation Of Ulyssess referencing in their radical surreal manifestos.  I got these from a fan years ago who made a rare Huggy Bear CDR.  I don't have the tracks from the other bands.

1 - Trafalger Square
2 - Godziller
3 - More Music From Bells
4 - Snow White/Rose Red

Hi, my friend!

I hope you´re doin´well. I want to make a request: I´m searching now a long time for the "Never Another Sunset"-Album from THE ROSE OF AVALANCHE.The record was released in 1989. Did you have the album and can you post it perhaps?

Yours sincerely [K.F.]
