2 stars Five years have passed since Vedda Tribe's innovative debut, in between Filippo Guerini became also a guitar teacher.In 2004 the trio from Crema returned with a second album under the title ''Good Night to the Bucket''.This was again released with the support of the Italian label Lizard.

While ''Vedda Tribe'' had plenty of experimental vibes here and there, ''Good Night to the Bucket'' sees the Italian trio dripping through Experimental Rock from the start to the very end.It still has the KING CRIMSON feel all the way through, but the Fusion and Kraut Rock touches have almost completely faded and Vedda Tribe blend these sonic guitar textures with lots of sound effects and Industrial-like mannerisms.This time though the overall style doesn't sound as attractive as their previous work.The sound has become too experimental, too atonal and rather uninteresting with little to remind the charming approach of their debut.The talent of the group is still evident though in tracks such as ''Young Meditation'' or ''Uncle Bouzerant'', a mix of frenetic KING CRIMSON Prog with Electronic/Fusion, but the majority of the eleven tracks are completely based on cosmic Electronics, sound effects and disjointed breaks.The result is a cold, inhuman and mechanical atmosphere with total abscence of emotions.

The next year Vedda Tribe became history.Fiilippo Guerini still serves as a guitar teacher, while Mauro Pamiro has started his own music project, covering Emily Dickinson's poems with Electronic/Experimental Music since the demise of the group.

''Good Night to the Bucket'' is a really hard work to get through for the average listener.Stick with Vedda Tribe's eponymous album for some challenging Prog music, this album is headed only to fans of Experimental Rock forms.

3 stars A short-lived trio from Crema, Italy, found in 1999 by keyboardist/bassist Mauro Pamiro, guitarist/singer Filippo Guerini and drummer Flavio Leva.Everything went fast for Vedda Tribe, as the same year the band was signed by Lizard Records, eventually recording and releasing their self-titled debut before the end of 1999.

Unlike the mass of Italian groups, Vedda Tribe were more experimental with Avant-Garde hints dominating their sound, which was basically KING CRIMSON-influenced with many complex themes.The opening ''Il Passagio Del Mar Rosso'' is a mix of smooth BRUDFORD-like Fusion with some nice guitar workouts by Guerini and dynamic, complicated and rhythmic Avant-Prog with heavy guitars and piano on the forefront.''Nebbia Di Lilliput'' opens with a hypnoric bass/synth-driven, almost Kraut Rock-ish theme to become a groovy beast in the process as the tune progresses with a powerful rhythm section and the frenetic keyboards of Pamiro leading the way.''Hypercube'' is another dynamic piece, much more diverse than the opening tracks, with a Fusion style until the middle led by nice guitar work and a delicate piano pace, but what follows is a raw yet interesting attack of synths, guitars, bass and drums in a Heavy/Psych mood.''Democrazy'' is definitely the more complex composition of the album with a strong KING CRIMSON flavor, full of endless breaks, schizophenic guitar exercises, atonal piano and a light ending section to calm things down.''Etemenanki'' shows a return to the flexible BRUDFORD-like Fusion style of ''Il Passagio Del Mar Rosso'', before the distorted voice of Guerini takes over supported by a light piano tune, which gets more dynamic and Avant- sounding until the end with the rise of the bass lines and the addition of synthesizers.

Different sounding and very interesting work from this Italian trio, which is sure to please all fans of Jazz/Fusion, Heavy/Psych or Avant-Prog as well as anyone into the extreme adventures of KING CRIMSON.Strongly recommended...3.5 stars.

4 stars Vedda Tribe was a short-lived trio from the Lombardy region of Italy that released a couple of albums before doing a vanishing act in 2005. They took their name from the indigenous people of Sri Lanka, who in fact call themselves the Wanniya-laeta; the name 'Vedda Tribe' is used mainly by Sri Lankan city people to describe their forest-dwelling neighbours. In spite of the folkloric name, Vedda Tribe's music is modern and future- looking and has little to do with the forests of Sri Lanka, or agrarian Italy for that matter.

On their 1999 debut album they certainly sound like atypical riders of the RPI tide and their setting of the Exodus, 'Il Passagio del Mar Rosso', is an extravagant three-pronged thrust of space rock. The opening aggression and tumult of ten riff-plagues leads to a leisurely wander in the wilderness, a passage of brief calm before the crunching storm of pursuing chariot guitar squadrons and the mother of all slaughters by pillars of synthesizer flame and red water licks.

The mind-altering hypnotic groove of 'Nebbia di Lilliput' is a more leisurely piece although it successfully maintains a force of giddy numbness that a vertiginous Jonathan Swift might have experienced. Burbling electronics steadily creep in through a fog of peyote-pipe smoke and Lemuel Gulliver can be pictured wakening slowly amid the detritus on the seashore, dazed and with bleary eyes hallucinating waves of tiny people in miniature clockwork spaceships and purple velvet bikini tops. The added momentum the track gains towards the end perhaps reflects the viciousness of the fictional Lilliputians.

Vedda Tribe soothe and vex by turns and they are more than just eclectic; they are nothing short of complete genre sluts. For example 'Hypercube' is like some kind of psychedelic bolero of metrical piano underpinned with a slide guitar mewing like copulating cats, while the goofy fury and jazzy kerfuffle of 'Democrazy' sounds as if it could have been recorded by a crackbrained addict possessed by the copper jitters.

The album flows calmly to a close with the nocturnal meditation of 'Etemenanki', which was the name given to the stepped-pyramid of Babel that was believed to be a road between worlds in ancient mythology. This song, the only vocal track on the album, is dedicated to the Italian comic book hero Martin Mystere but seems to be concerned with the pursuit of spiritual transcendence, a long immortal dream which arises out of a guitar riff that revolves, mounting slowly round and round.

Vedda Tribe's sound is far from characteristic RPI and it seems to be immersed in a rich sauce of space rock, jazz and Kraut. However, beneath that outward veneer, and thanks largely to their eclectic spirit and, at least in my opinion, a particular Italian preoccupation with religion, the ancients, literature and philosophy, they just about manage to maintain their cultural identity in the same way as the Wanniya-laeta preserve their self-identification in the face of cultures unlike their own.

4 Danish pastries for this one.

2 stars The now-defunct Vedda Tribe followed up their excellent debut album with the rather disappointing 'Good Night To The Bucket' (2004), an album that witnessed a shift towards an increased use of electronics and a further urbanisation of the band's sound. They're like RPI exiles on this album with an industrial and mechanical sound from the extreme frontier edge of the genre. This isn't too surprising as the band came from the Industrial Triangle in the north of Italy, and the claustrophobic expression and intensity are perhaps in keeping with the dark heart of Italy.

Compared to the band's debut release, this album's terrain is dominated by shorter, more numerous tracks resulting in something a disjointed feel and there's a greater reliance on vocals; combined with the newfound fixation with electronics this all results in less guitar- driven psych. The ancient cults and traditional cafe ice-cream have been expunged in favour of a bang-up-to-date mutant fusion of modern music, beat culture (the gimlet-eyed reader will note the reference to Allen Ginsberg's 'Holy Soul Jelly Roll') and what might be described as electronic gamelan.

Not by any means a bad album, but probably of minor interest to most RPI fans who should check out the band's first album instead.
