Chris Bacon

First of all, let me just tell you that his middle initial is, in fact, P. That makes him Chris P. Bacon. Just go ahead and relish that for a minute. Done yet? Okay, Iíll wait. How about now? Real good, then: Chris is the clown prince of VOLUMEN, the bandís court jester, its theatrical fall guy. And also its most recent addition, although youíd never know it to hear the way his wicked cool keyboard lines blend seamlessly with VOLUMENís fully-realized, graduate level guitar pop sound. Chris is also the ace up the VOLUMEN lead vocal sleeve, the catalyst by which an already, um, uh, high-octane show can suddenly take that quantum leap into fourth-dimensional coitus between audience and band with a perfectly-timed cover of the KINKSí "Superman" or his own ladiesí-choice-slow-skate showstopper, "Super Confident Guy." And front-side ollies? Yeah, heís got those.

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.
