Just to see Animal Collective, it is necessary to spend a little more time listening to unusual compositions. "Animal Collective - is four friends who like to get together, play music, watch movies and play football " -these lines is limited at simple biography of the artists on the site of their record label. According to the group, this information is sufficient for the first acquaintance, but anything deeper - look in their music. Indeed, the history of "collectivization" is very simple. Four future musicians grew up and studied in pairs, first met Josh and Noah (aka Deakin and Panda Bear), later they were joined by a second pair - Dave and Brian (in the world " animals " Avey Tare and Geologist). The guys met and began to communicate on the basis of favorite bands, one of which was The Grateful Dead.They then tried to compose and make home recordings - Josh and Noah called themselves The Cartels, Dave and Brian were called Auto Mine. Well, then, it is easy to predict adolescent finally swallowed up work on a new joint project. Or rather - they carried away " animal collectivization. " Give the guys would then instead of guitars in hand and paint brush -they would have painted the poster but would attribute the bottom "All this kindergarten ! ". They are absolutely not interested in the fuss about unusual creativity, they just played - played and recorded songs played backyard football, playing the word. From there, by the way, and "animal" names : Dave tore off a piece of his own name and pasted it from the end of the names ,Noah saw among his first drawings something remotely resembling a panda, and began from that moment to be called " panda ", Brian somehow mistakenly suddenly called a " geologist ", although the guy honestly preparing to become a biologist, and Josh once finished badly - signed " deacon Kondrat " yes and it still is. The first experience of joint work for the group was more than successful - they sang with the Vashti Bunyan - legendary British singer.
