One Man's Ceiling Is Another Man's Floor

Below ground level, across the street from Fenway.

I first found out about The Volcano Suns through a cover of White Elephant that Arcwelder included as a b-side on their Captain Allen single. I started playing the Arcwelder b-side on my radio show at WRCT fairly often. I only got around to checking out the Suns themselves after a listener called in and requested that I play a Suns song. In WRCT’s massive vinyl collection I was able to find a copy of The Bright Orange Years play Jak for my listener.

The point of this little anecdote of musical discovery is that a friend told me that the Volcano Suns (including Peter Prescott of Mission of Burma and Bob Weston of Shellac) were getting back together for a few shows at the end of December. After a little hemming and hawing, I gave in and purchased some tickets for the show. Boston, here I come! Now, the only question is whether to stick around for New Year’s or head back to D.C.
