Blood Sausage

Huggy Bear has always been one of my favorite bands. As someone who grew up with cassettes rather than LPs, I didn't purchase my first long playing record album until I was teenager -- but it was the Huggy Bear/Bikini Kill split record.

Sometime in the late 1990s (how long ago that seems already!) I learned that people from Huggy Bear also played in a band called Blood Sausage. I tracked down their records and proceeded to file them away for a rainy day.

In the course of doing research for this project, I discovered these records and put them on my turntable for the first time. What joy!

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Blood Sausage.

Hi there, this is a properly brilliant blog. I have a Blood Sausage thing that you don't have listed, which I've just ripped and will put on my blog as soon as it finishes uploading - It's by "The Element of Crime", and is Soul2 on Soul Static Sound. It's called "The Things We Do For Love", and is rather fine, and also has no information at all available about it online.
