    Just discovered this lot by fluke the other day and they have really blown my mind wide open. Exactly the musical shot in the arm I needed!

    How to clear a room: Put on Winter Songs. Watch as people frown, shrug and walk out.

    M3 asked Art Bears drummer Chris Cutler about the devaluation of music, the differences between SOPA & ACTA, and why print-centric copyright laws are struggling to cope with recording technology -

    Hopes and Fears is seriously jarring, like a medieval housewife giving bloody birth in a wooden basin. I keep going back though in the hopes that they will tell me their secrets.

    This band is seriously difficult for me to listen to. I tough it out every now and then, but a lot of their stuff is too difficult for my pansy ass ears.

    I used to think they were the furry sort of bears but then I thought, maybe they're the sort of bear like tolerate, put up with; bugbears, which makes more sense... their art is more of an ordeal. But then I thought, hang on Henry Cow WTF is that all about then. Now I just busk Freedom on a kazoo

    Well if they didn't want people to expect them to be cute, they shouldn't have called themselves Art Bears, DUH.

    It's the exact opposite of Muzak, because when it's playing it forces you to listen to its annoyingness.

    March 2010

    Their music isn't anywhere near as cute as their name. I'll stick with Slapp Happy, thanks

    Definitely AB is worth-listening. As for Civilization and 'Civilization' - these are misstaged tracks and reffers to track no.12 from Nouvelle Vague album Late Night Tales. And this track is a cover of Civilisation (4:39) from Art Bears The World As It Is Today album. The funniest thing is that those wrong tagged NV tracks are far more popular than properly tagged one. The sad thing is that french band playing mostly covers has almost 11.000.000 plays while AB 135.000...

    I've recently ordered The Art Box. I cannot wait! So far Hopes and Fears is better than In Praise of Learning.

    Are Art Bears one the greatest bands Britain has ever produced? Join The British Rock Artists League and vote for them in Band Qualifying to get them in the final tournament. Spread the word!

    The fact that I've never heard an entire album of Art Bears is nothing short of sad and cripplingly depressing.
