Here's another recording by harwilmer, part of the on-going series of shows he recorded in and around Boston and which are being transferred and shared by a commitee of several seeders including phil183, stefan, Songmama, The Commish, carville, notsaved and any others I haven't mentioned.
Volcano Suns were founded in 1983 by Mission of Burma's drummer Peter Prescott - they released six albums with various lineups from 1985 to their demise in 1991, and have played occaisional shows since then following the re-formation of Mission of Burma.
It was recently announced that their long out-of-print first two albums will be re-issued in January 2009.
I suppose you could call the Volcano Suns a punk band, but they were musically much more complex and sophisticated than that, as was Husker Du for example.
But at THIS show they were loose as a goose (more than usual perhaps) and not at all taking themselves too seriously - this is the third and last of harwilmer's tapes with this line-up. (one more to go with a new lineup)
