Volcano Suns - The Bright Orange Years

(LINK FIXED 8/24/08)

I might as well post this record as well because it sort of goes hand in hand with my last post. In the mid-80's Mission of Burma had to call it quits because the insanely high volume of their live shows coupled with constant touring had more or less blown apart guitar player Roger Miller's ears. After their demise, drummer Peter Prescott decided to form Volcano Suns. Volcano Suns sound like a really drunk and rowdy version of Mission of Burma, which in case you were wondering, is a good thing. I'm not sure why these guys still haven't received a great deal of attention, because they certainly deserve it

Pre-alt-rock era lurching loudmouths, Volcano Suns, are finally getting some reissue love. On January 27, 2009, Merge will release the first two Volcano Suns records—1985's The Bright Orange Years and 1986's All Night Lotus Party—on CD for the first time, remastered and with requisite extra tracks. The post-Mission Of Burma band, led by Burma drummer Peter Prescott, wailed out of the underground in the late '80s with a sound like the most volatile, if still catchy, end of MoB barreled forward by Prescott's inimitable howl.
This grateful deed comes on the heels of Merge's rescue job for another fine late '80s Boston band, Big Dipper, with their 3-CD reissue set earlier this year. The Volcano Suns and Big Dipper shared some members and the Homestead Records imprint early in their existence.
