Det Glade Vanvidd

Det Glade Vanvidd

Profile:
Experimental, chaotic, humorous and arty post-punk band formed in 1984 from the UFFA-squat in Trondheim, Norway. Influenced by artist such as the Residents, Det Elektriske Kjøkken, Scratch Acid and Knutsen & Ludvigsen, playing a wide array of instruments and styles (such as hardcore punk, folk, noise and sludge metal) in their own dilettantish way. Changed their name to Shakespeare in the Bush in 1989.

From their English info sheet following the cd release
"English for beginners:
DGV hit the stages in 1984 (sometimes also hitting the audience) and lived a 5-year life of aggression, noise and silliness both live and in the studio. Inspired by punk rock (you don´t have to be a great musician to play great music) and The Residents (you don´t have to play punk-rock just because you don´t know how to play), the band started from scratch and ran in all directions at once. The concerts were a mix of visuals (films/sculptures/paintings etc.) and a band not necessarily being able to play their own music, which often would lead to desperate measures to compensate. In the studio, the approach was different – a mixture of carefully planned cut & paste, and improvising around somewhat sketchy structures of songs. The band produced a series of tapes and a couple of singles in the years 1986-89, and also participated in a number of collections.
By the late 80´s, the band realized they knew how to play their instruments rather well, and did the only honourable thing: They quit."

Released quite a few cassettes, compilations, and one 7 inch. Released a second 7" under the name "Shakespear In The Bush". Some of their material was collected on the Cd “The Rest of det Glade Vanvidd 1984-1989” (2005).
Associated acts: Angor Wat, Israelvis, Pontiac Pilatus, Albino Slug, the Four & Wolfdate
