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).
