Shane Hickey Volumen 1
Shane Hickey

As the introverted boy genius of VOLUMEN, it most often falls to Shane to write the songs that make the whole world sing and the young girls cry. When hes not singing about underwater lovemaking or playing video games for 36 hours straight (passions which, as reliable sources inform, he enjoys more or less equally), Shane can usually be found pressing wildflowers in his lockable Holly Hobby diary (combination: 3-23-16) or walking and reading Popular Mechanics at the same time. He is also a world class mental archivist of nearly-forgotten pop acts of the early 1980s and an unrepentant fan of some of the fruitiest music ever recorded. In fact, the last male bonding I did with Shane was over our shared love of the Art of Noise, and the Magnetic Fields album Holiday.

Title: Volumen / No-Fi Soul Rebellion Split 7" Review
Author: Phil Hunt


Volumen/No-Fi Soul Rebellion Split 7"
Volumen crashed on my floor one night after they played Ralph's Corner. They took pictures of themselves posing with my Jesus Action Figure. My room mates and I took pictures of them with Piss-Proof the Clown -- a nightmarish stuffed clown toy that was made with this fake satin material. We thought it was designed to be piss proof. Whenever a band stayed at our place, we made them pose with Piss-Proof the Clown. Sounds pretty kinky doesn't it? Well, if it had actually been as salacious an evening as I would lead you to believe, Volumen's "Lady Cop" could have been a great sound track. They lay down a weird, funky new wave groove that makes you want to lick the sweat right off someone. No-Fi Soul Rebellion, on the other hand, have never had their photos taken with Piss Proof the Clown, but their slinky R&B joint "Church" could probably lead to some crazy sex magic of its own. If the hot beats, handclaps, and guitar freakouts and greasy funk don't get you in the mood nothing will. Get this one for your valentine.
