Hibee Nation was a group consisting of Kris Needs, Irvine Welsh, Wonder, Sarah Jane Harrison and Henry Cullen. The single ‘Life Of Dance was produced by Kris Needs, and appeared in 1997. Yup, that Irvine Welsh, as in Trainspotting.
Alas, it seems to have pretty much disappeared without trace; the label it came out on, Eruption, were part of Creation who were a little more preoccupied with Oasis’ ultimate white elephant of an album, Be Here Now.
But it’s a fun track where Irvine Welsh gets to play judge, something he clearly still would like to do. And of course the band were named in reference to Hibernian FC.
