  • This was the first song that James Bagshaw wrote for Volcano and the album title came from a lyric in the tune.

    Mr. Sound falls like a mountain
    Like a volcano erupting
    On a boat on the molten lava


    Bagshaw told Billboard magazine." I think it's the only song I have ever written that was in a hotel room, and had it actually be any good. That was at Mount Fuji in Japan."
