VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA X6

CORPSE 1998
Vibracathedral Orchestra (White)



About: "Second release, with same line-up as "Mothing". Chugs toward near-rock in places, and culminates in the ecstatic end blow-out of their first live performance."
"Like all evil has been evaporated away, scraping their tribute to pain by silent music flashed back at us like steel against the sun."

THEIR SPINES CRUMBLE FOR A HUG 2000
Self-released



About: "Two long ass jams from the winter of 2000. The A side catches The VCO in puuuurrrrrfect hippy psych drone mode with acoustic guitars, hand percussion, bells, gongs, etc. Makes me think they were formed thirty years too late. They woulda been perfect opening up for Quintessence! Side B is the perfect come down to the nose bleeding euphoric heights on the A side. Casio keys are duct taped down and strings hold down the steady drone and every once in awhile Neil shakes his car keys. How precious!"

VERSATILE ARAB CHORD CHART 2000
VHF



About: "It sounds something like a bunch of itinerant workers from some unnamed East Asian island or another sitting around a fire made from remnants of a polluted Western culture just jamming, not because they want to but because it's the only thing left that they can do. The music is like conversation, getting angry, sniping, getting calmer, discussing the weather, chanting soulfully, whispering melancholically. It's absolutely entrancing to listen to from our perspective too and stands as good evidence as to why VCO are one of the most important acts in the scene at this moment."

DABBLING WITH GRAVITY AND WHO YOU ARE 2002
VHF



About: "New pressing of long out of print title by the classic quintet of Neil Campbell, Bridgit Hayden, Julian Bradley, Michael Flower, and Adam Davenport. Assembled from recordings of their weekly sessions in Michael's kitchen, the tracks here represent the joyous, celebratory side of the VCO - all forward motion, massed strings, percussion, horns, and little instruments rocketing forward in a swirl of sound. Compared to the more austere sounds of recent CD's like "Lino Hi" and "Versatile Arab Chord Chart," the tracks here take off from where the loose hippy chant and drum action of collectives like Amon Duul intersects with the ploygot instrumental approach of mid-60's Sun Ra (ref "Exotic Forest," "Shadow World," etc)."
"There is no chord formation that can be planned which creates elation or sadness, or any art which is profound enough to change anything fundamental about a person. There is just a resonance around us which musicians/artists are using or not using."

(Bridgit Hayden)
