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.

Special guests this week Volumen. These guys were a buncha non-smoking well mannered cornfed boys from Missoula Montana. They had great stories about Chickens shitting in their mouths, side project bands involving breakfast foods, and touring in an ambulance- literally. They are on myspace at www.myspace.com/volumen (i think) and I asked them how they would descride their music to which they replied Heavy Wave.
