Fire! ønsker et brændende opgør med traditioner og forfølger i stedet nye flammende stier med en helt frisk tilgang til improviseret musik – en tilgang, der er inspireret af lige dele garagepunk, elektroakustiske sager og støj fra tung industri. Det var koncert-arrangøren Conny Lindström, der fik idéen til Fire! og bookede trioen til Stockholm-restauranten Riches lille bar. Bandets massive lyd fik barpersonalet til at holde på glassene af frygt for, at de ville eksplodere. Alle havde imidlertid en god tid, så efterfølgende bookede trioen sig til en tid i bandet Tapes lille studie i Stockholms industri-kvarter. Resultatet af disse sessions var en god blanding af de tre medlemmers baggrunde, og man tøvede ikke med at benytte sig af overdubs og alskens andre tiltag.

Debutalbummet “You Liked Me Five Minutes Ago” blev indspillet i Stockholm og udgivet af det norske pladeselskab Rune Grammofon i 2009. I 2011 udkom “Unreleased?”, der blev indspillet i Japan med Jim O’Rourke på elektrisk guitar.

I oktober 2011 turnerede Fire! med den australske drone-mester Oren Ambarchi fra Sunn O))). Sammen indspillede de “In The Mouth – A Hand”, der udkom i starten af 2012, og efterfølgende indspillede trioen “(Without Noticing)”.

Line-up
Mats Gustafsson – Saxofoner, Fender Rhodes og elektronik
Johan Berthling – Elektrisk bas
Andreas Werliin – Trommer og percussion

The Milk Factory om Fire!
Out of the seemingly inexhaustible treasure chest that is the Scandinavian experimental scene comes this latest Swedish supergroup,(…) this three-headed entity, who operate under a banner which, thanks to a prominent element of punctuation, unmistakably suggests an element of urgency, have such widespread backgrounds that the sum of their collaborative effort was bound to surpass much of their individual outputs.

You Liked Me Five Minutes Ago is a pretty dense and vibrant affair, which rakes influences way beyond the confines of jazz, pulling in elements of seventies psychedelic rock and experimental Kosmische/Krautrock, amongst other things (…) Propelled by a pretty fluid and volatile rhythmic section, which is as much at ease with introspective moments as it is with incendiary passages, these songs drift from the primal sax effusions of If I Took Your Hand to the hypnotic groove of the last segment of But Sometimes I Am or from the rambling and feverish cadence of the first half of that same piece to the more sophisticated layering of Can You Hold For A Minute? and the surprisingly light tribal flow of the title track. (…)

As an entity, Fire! work extremely well. Fearlessly pushing into uncharted territories, combining elements which are usually kept well apart into a greatly contrasted and eclectic sonic canvas, the trio have created with this first album a particularly intense and daring soundtrack which can only captivate more with time.
