Limited pressing in coloured vinyl Kim Volkman has led an interesting musical life. Guitarist with Ian Rilen and the Love Addicts - one of the most underrated, raw and real bands to appear on Australian stages in the last 30 years - he's also had three stints filling his late ex-band leader's bass spot in X.

Volkman's played with many lesser-known bands - including his own very good Whiskey Priests.

Unlike Justin Bieber, he's never had notable success. That's probably a good thing in Kim's case - on his own admission, it might have killed him.

Kim Volkman's childhood was scarred by abuse, he's had a couple of runs of smack addiction.

He's been a functioning alcoholic, ridden out a number of car crash relationships and, of course, has lived, eaten and breathed rock and roll.

Music's been both his salvation and his downfall, at times. Even being a "rock star" in a relatively small pool (that would be Melbourne) brings pressures to live up to the name.

If catharsis is character building, Kim Volkman is one of Australia's most resilient characters."
