Ca sa-i citam pe cei de la The Wire, Volcano the Bear au produs cea mai rafinata si in acelasi timp salbatica muzica britanica din ultimii zece ani, atat pe discuri cat si pe scena.

La fel ca This Heat – una dintre trupele importante care i-au influentat – daca Volcano the Bear ar avea un motto, acesta ar fi: „All possible processes. All channels open”. Muzica lor e ancorata in progresivul avangardist englez al lui Robert Wyatt sau Henry Cow, in post-punk-ul DIY al celor de la Alternativ TV, in free improv-ul european si in noise-ul industrial al anilor 80. Asa se face ca, de-a lungul timpului, au fost comparati cu The Residents, Nurse With Wound sau Faust, printre altii.

In prezent, Volcano the Bear este un duo format din Aaron Moore si Daniel Padden, multi-instrumentisti, amandoi implicati in numeroase alte proiecte muzicale cum ar fi The One Ensemble, Textile Orchestra sau Amolvacy, iar dintre colaborarile lor live le amintim pe cele cu Michael Snow, Mats Gustafsson, Paul Dunmall, Jeremy Barnes sau C. Spencer Yeh.

Au inregistrat pana acum peste 15 albume la case de discuri ca Misra, Beta Lactam Ring, Textile Digitalis sau No-Fi dar si la propria lor casa, Volucan & Volfurten. Cel mai recent – „Golden Rhythm / Ink Music” – este scos la Rune Grammofon, label-ul preferat al celor preocupati de experimente electronice.

VTB’s music is a mixture of non-idiomatic acoustic improvisation, tapework, oddly warped folksong and… fun, fun, fun… VTB’s distinctive sound, which focuses most strongly on natural, acoustic elements bent into unfamiliar shapes, stems from their earliest experiments, but not as a rigid means of escaping from the straitjacket of conventional music.

VTB is not a simply rock outfit „going experimental”, but a group intent on discarding all reference points, to a point where everything was permissible. VTB is one of that groups which possess the uncanny knack of placing the most perfectly unexpected sound in the most perfectly unexpected places.

All their compositions are based on improvisation. „Composition doesn’t start and then stop where improvisation begins”. In VTB the improvisation is reined in by pre-arranged points of contact and departure. VTB live is an extravagantly theatrical spectacle, a mixture of dada happening and shamanic ritual.
