Volcano Suns tonight

 
Christmas came early for Volcano Suns fans last week when Pete Prescott's other band-reunited posted a bunch of rarities on MySpace:
We're posting new songs...pre-mp3 indie rock DOWNLOADABLE for the first time:"Tree Stomp" - rare, rare, rare, from the Throbbing Lobster CLAWS comp from back in the day...CLASSIC old-timey Suns tune..."Room With a View" - which our friend M. Barton was so insanely complimentary of...Prescott beat Merchant Ivory to the punch on this one..."Cover" - One of Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan's favorites - when David Kleiler weirdly jammed with Yo La as their potential second guitarist back in '85, they played this song...obviously, YLT didn't need a second guitarist, and Kaplan needed to become the Jewish Jimi Hendrix...little did Kleiler know he'd be in the Suns years later..."Punching Bag" - from the Albini-produced CAREER IN ROCK..."samples" from the movie Raging Bull...our friend Screwball named her company after this song...
Hear lots more of this stuff tonight when the band plays its only scheduled gig at the Middle East, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge / 617.864.EAST. Oh, and Kudgel is playing too.
 
LISTEN: Volcano Suns, "Cover" (mp3 via MySpace)

p.s.: Holy shit the Kudgel discography on Super 8 is available at Wal Mart.
