Volcano The Bear ‎– "The Inhazer Decline" (United Dairies ‎– UD 055) 1999



Bookish Leicester Quartet, Volcano the Bear's, first 'proper' LP, on Nurse with Wound's United Dairies imprint, from the end of the 20th Century.
Shove The Residents, Renaldo and the Loaf, Nurse with Wound, Current 93, This Heat,and some carefully selected 'Krautrock', into a Kenwood Chef, and you could possibly end up with this. Plenty of silly voices,Dada-esque lyrics,daft noises, and a veritable rainbow of instruments,played with varying levels of skill and incompetence.Ladles full of 'Too clever by half' poured copiously over the finished product,although the constant invention keeps that particular irritation at bay.
Can get a bit silly, but was there anybody else doing this in 1999?.....er.....probably; but not quite as effectively.
