Volcano Suns

Rising out of the ashes of the disbanded Mission of Burma, drummer Peter Prescott put together the Volcano Suns with bassist Jeff Weigand and guitarist Jon Williams to continue making rock music, but to do it in a lighter, less serious way than Prescott's former band. 1985 saw the band's debut, The Bright Orange Years, released on Homestead. Their second and third releases -- also on Homestead -- saw a development in the band when Weigand and Williams left after album number two, All Night Lotus Party. 1987's Bumper Crop, the Volcano Suns' third, was well received enough to get the band signed to SST for their next two albums: Farced (1988) and Thing of Beauty (1989). Considered the best lineup of them all, this incarnation (featuring the guest guitar work of David Kleiler) would be the band's last. 1991's Career in Rock (released on Quarterstick/Touch and Go) would prove to be the band's final release. In late 2005, Prescott re-formed the Volcano Suns and played reunion shows in Hoboken and Boston. ~ Christopher M. True

Can't believe no one's posted since kh's perceptive and accurate remark. I loved the Suns. I'd be happy to see Bumper Crop added here.

One of THE most underrated band of this era, in my view. Prescott was a master in mixing the Absurd with sharp observations . His lyrics are rarely mentioned and often overlooked. The Volcano Suns were a loping, pummeling, absurdest Thing of Beauty, perhaps the best combination of humor, wit, and electrified power of the day.
