Dear Volcano fans-

As you know, the Volcano has been dormant for some time now... here's
what's happening!

MARK (casio, lead singer dude)
Mark made a feature film with his brother Jay called THE PUFFY CHAIR which
got picked up at the Sundance Film Festival and is premiering in theaters
FRIDAY JUNE 2 in select cities. It's a road trip comedy about an indie
rocker (played by Mark), his marriage-hungry girlfriend, and his
psuedo-granola brother as they try to deliver a 1985 purple lazyboy
cross-country to their Dad as a surprise birthday gift. It's got songs from
DEATH CAB, SPOON, and a bunch of Polyvinyl bands. Also, look out for an
unfinished Volcano demo in there... check out the trailer and showtimes @

CRAIG (guitar person)
Right out of the van after the last Volcano tour, Craig has been kept quite
busy playing trumpet with Sufjan Stevens, appearing on ³Illinois² and the
upcoming ³Avalanche², as well as riding along for all of the related tours.
When he¹s home in Brooklyn, he rocks the guitar with JTR3 in the Americans
Uk, and has recently begun work on a yet unnamed ³solo² project...

JTR3 (drummer guy)
In the time since the last Volcano show, JTR3 has played with a wide array
of new york types including Sufjan Stevens, the Asiko Afrobeat Ensemble, the
space-rock band Good Evening, garage-ists Americans Uk, and the new-wavey
music of The Countess. He spends most of his time now working on his own
group Va Va China, an electronica-inspired group whose concept-driven shows
allow for total improvisation and collaboration with other musicians and
various video artists. check them out at http://vavachina.com or

...all our love
