"When The One Ensemble of Daniel Padden slowly metamorphosed into a band of its own, Padden (of Volcano the Bear) started to record under his birth name, with last year's "The Isaac Storm" on Ultra Eczema being the first result. Over the years Padden has developed a strong fascination for obscure musics from all over the world: mouth organ love-songs from Thailand, The Ramayana Monkey Chant from Bali, Khene pieces from Laos; so-called world music from Burundi to Bulgaria. Combining these interests with his love for British Folk and Art Rock, Kraut Rock, Free Jazz, the surreal collage techniques of Nurse With Wound and the odd humour of The Residents, he has developed a totally unique and highly personal musical vision without ever sounding overambitious or directionless. Gorgeous song-writing is seamlessly transformed into pure fuzz or string drones, suddenly interrupted by some improvised reeds or collapsing percussion." (label info)
