"HAGAR THE WOMB is for many, the missing piece of the UK anarcho punk scene. Formed in 1981, Hagar The Womb was not a typical example of that scene, for they refused to conform to the dress codes and dour seriousness of their peers. What first started as a sextet sporting three female vocalists, soon experienced a healthy bit of turnover. Circulating through at least a dozen band members, Hagar The Womb was often identified by bright colored artwork and outfits, as well as bringing an original and upbeat sound to an otherwise homogenous scene. A week after their inception, they were sharing a bill with The Mob and Zounds. Hagar The Womb would go on to play with the likes of The Apostles, Poison Girls and Rubella Ballet before breaking up in 1985. A Brighter Shade Of Black puts together both of their 12 EPs, Word Of The Womb and Funnery in the Nunnery, as well as a common compilation favorite called "For The Ferrymen." The latter recorded by POISON GIRLS sometimes bassist, PETE FENDER, in the Poison Girls own X-N-Trix Studios. Reissued for the first time and limited to 1,000 copies." -Mississippi.
