The Element Of Crime 'The Things You Do For Love' 1993 REPOST by FRANKKUBB
Original 1993 UK release on Soul Static Sound (UK) (catalog # soul 2), in handmade Picture Sleeve.
Raw, urgent and angry punk rock which transcends the whole riot grrrl thing to become of the absolute best punk records of the 90's imho... an incredible EP.
huggybearsite: This was a band which was together some time during Huggy Bear's existance. I don't know much about them except Chris sang, Jo and Dale from Blood Sausage traded bass duties, and Andy from Linus (they are on SOME HEARTS PAID TO LIE) played guitar and Daryl from Sister George played the drums and Layla from Skinned Teen did some rad back-ups. The Element of Crime 7" was supposed to be the first in a series of Huggy Bear offshoot 7" singles, but no others came after this one. Here is some more info I got from Layla: "Chris wrote the lyrics crouched down in the tube station we were waiting for Bratmobile to come. The studio was Toe Rag, which is the same place a lot of Billy Childish/Holly Go Lightly stuff was recorded, really rad old equipment and atmosphere too. It was a drunken party style recording, songs all written on the spur of the moment."
