When - Drowning But Learning,LP/CD,1987,Norway


A monument in the avant-garde, Lars Pedersen's origins date back to the late 70's with his work in the legendary experimentalist band HOLY TOY. Pedersen began composing material for WHEN in 1983 and has consistently developed the concept into the next millenium. Pedersen has reached a plateau many cannot attest to. His extremely illustrative aural stylistics which spans the universe of cut up/collage design manipulating everything from folk/ethnic, RIO [Rock In Opposition], cartoon schizophrenia, poignant soundscape, hypnotic minimalism, massive industrial/factory environment, adherent pop and intense orchestrative content have not even approached limitations - WHEN remains as visceral and seemingly arbitrary as it began, granting its listeners passports to limitless space and time.

Holy Toy was startet as Mechanical Grave (including Pedersen) in 1980 and did a few concerts as support for Nico in Scandinavia before they changed their name to Holy Toy. Discography on Holy Toy here; http://home.online.no/~movidar/discographies/holytoy.html

Pedersen was in one off the first Norwegian punk band Hærverk in the late 70`s as a drummer. He quit before they released their legendary one off release, that can be downloaded here; http://www.kbdrecords.com/2007/01/13/haerverk-7/

Is it possible to hear more When? Some of his albums (on Jester Records at least) are not to find anywhere on the web : Writercakebox, The Lobster Boys and Whenever that is.
