There is this band that hardly anybody knows anything about, or else nothing at all. It is an improvisational/experimental band formed in Leicester, England in 1995. The band is made up of Aaron Moore (drums/trumpet/vocals), Nick Mott (saxophone/guitar/vocals), Clarence Manuelo (tapes, electronics) and Daniel Padden (keyboards, guitar, clarinet, vocals). These are the main instruments, but each song may use additional intruments or equipment to produce a unique sound.

The band had broken up in 2000 and went on to do different projects with different bands. In 2006 they got back together and released a double disc album, Classic Erasmus Fusion . To me this album is the best by far, as their experience with different bands and different sounds produced an even broader sense of great music!

If any of you are into experimantal or even strange, quirky music, I urge you to take a listen to this band and see for yourself what I find so intriguing about Volcano The Bear
