Boston’s Volcano Suns, led by Mission of Burma drummer Peter Prescott, were a product of the diversity blossoming in and around hardcore punk in the early 80s. A hard-rocking trio that forced pop melodies and noisy chaos to coexist, they fit right in with their labelmates at Homestead—including Sonic Youth, Dinosaur, and Big Black. Their first two albums, recorded by Prescott, guitarist Jon Williams, and bassist Jeff Weigand, were among my favorites when they came out in 1985 and ’86, and they still stand up today.

These two old gems not only deserve their current reappraisal, but a measure of enduring respect, too. Not only did they fill the huge void left by the best American post-punk group of the early '80s — which was a remarkable feat at the time for a small community that cared — they also proved enduring party-crashers in their own right.
