“Greetings, Grapple Fans” were the words that introduced Saturday afternoon wrestling on British commercial television when all three members of this trio were boys. These memorable words were spoken by a silky-voiced commentator called Kent Walton, who commentated on the wrestling between 1955 and 1988. When discussing improvised music one frequently use analogies and there are three in particular that usually come to mind: having a conversation, making love, or wrestling. Wrestling seems particularly apt when thinking about the music of HWF as the group does tend towards a playful, grappling style. This irreverence is conducive to making good music and it speaks of their ease with each other’s playing that they can throw each other around and pin each other to the canvas, musically speaking.
