Bare is a remix EP, sourced from Action Hero, the second full-length album from Melbourne's Little Nobody.
It features vocalist Marcella Brassett on the signature track and many of the remixes, and reconsiderations by Little Nobody, the LN Elektronische Ensemble, 8-Bit, Kandyman, Son Of Zev and Isnod. A remix done by DJ Rush was not included.
Bare was adjudged as 'Single of the Week' in Melbourne's Beat magazine by reviewer Andrew Mast.
"Little Nobody sits at the more experimental end of the Melbourne electronic scene, creating a wonderfully intelligent and artful work here," Mast ascribed. "Bare is an imaginative blend of early 20th-century German cabaret, 1980s Australian electro (hear the influences, perhaps, of Ash Wednesday and Ollie Olsen's Orchestra Of Skin & Bone) and today's refreshingly global electronic scene. And amongst the many reinterpretations of the song are 8-Bit's gloriously retro Eurotronica mix (very Telex) and Kandyman's hypnotic and swaggering industro hop restructuring."

Bare was a British magazine developed and launched as a wellbeing brand by the John Brown Media company It was published from Sept/Oct 2000 to August 2001, with six issues per year. An early version of the magazine, then called Well was tested in market research groups in 1999 where Claudia Zeff, then art director of UK Gardens Illustrated commissioned designer, Kirsten Willey to produce a wellbeing magazine concept. It was Zeff who suggested the name change from Well to Bare after watching a BBC documentary about British architect, John Pawson.
In March 2000, Ilse Crawford – founder editor of British ELLE Decoration - was invited as editor of Bare for a summer launch. At this time the publication was a bimonthly magazine available on news-stands internationally. The advertising department led by publisher, Honor Riley, formerly of Condé Nast, secured a world first with Chanel advertising in the launch issue. Partnerships were garnered with Harvey Nichols and other brands with synergy. The magazine was popular amongst the design aficionado in Belgium and a copy of the Helena Christensen edition made an appearance on the Sex And The City episode, Time and Punishment.
The magazine has been described as "speak[ing] the earnest psychobabble of the Hampstead eco-hypochondriac".

Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
Old English barian, from bare (adj.). Related: Bared; baring.
Old English bær "naked, uncovered, unclothed," from Proto-Germanic *bazaz (cognates: German bar, Old Norse berr, Dutch baar), from PIE *bhosos (cognates: Armenian bok "naked;" Old Church Slavonic bosu, Lithuanian basas "barefoot"). Meaning "sheer, absolute" (c.1200) is from the notion of "complete in itself."
