ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mister Voxius (aka Aaron Brown) first attempted serious songwriting back in 1992, in a Bingham Street basement in Pittsburgh with the members of Elias Khrone. Here were three guys who had just discovered Jane’s Addiction, Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins but grew up listening to everything from Rush and AC/DC to Paul Simon and the Kingston Trio. The 1992 cassette only release Elias Khrone featured the shift workers nightmare “The Slow, the Quick and the Crazy” with lyrics by Aaron, a song that was re-recorded in 1995 by Stitchmonkey and included on the Elias Khrone CD Theme From… of 1998.
In 1999 Aaron started writing the songs that would become Psyclotomis Rex, the one and only CD release by Voxius. With members of Hepcat Dilemma and a former drummer of Elias Khrone, Voxius songs like “The Peeler” became crowd pleasing favorites, and the band found itself gaining fans of their original “elastic” acoustic rock sound throughout the Pittsburgh area. In 2001 Voxius appeared at the Three Rivers Arts Festival, an annual Pittsburgh event that included acts like Sonic Youth and Wilco. Voxius also appeared at Three Rivers in 2002.
When Voxius disbanded abruptly in 2003, Mr.Voxius started writing and arranging songs for solo performance. “Make Money At Home” is based upon the strange incident of finding a Tarot card on the sidewalk, and speculating how it might be used for advertising purposes. A former Voxius favorite “Milk and Joy” is a personal story of self realization. The songs that now make up the Atroxius EP started to come together in early 2007. “Guess your Weight”, “Awn the Lon” and “A Hole” were all written while living in Oklahoma. Since moving to Muskogee in 2006, Mr.Voxius has been maintaining a presence on the web, and staying in touch with fans in Pittsburgh and around the world through MySpace and Soundclick.com. Most recently, Mr. Voxius has performed as part of the Bare Bones Film Festival in Muskogee.

WOW!I love the new music from Mr. Voxius. I am a dj in Pittsburgh,and have played the songs in the clubs where I dj with an overwhelmingly positive response from the audiences. The music is just what a dj like myself loves-not poppy but not dirgy with lyrical content that lets people enjoy a song for more than the beat. Great job and keep it up!

This is good stuff. I like it so you will too. Personal favorites are Flightless Bird and Guess Your Weight. Mr Voxious as his name seems to imply has a unique voice.

Atroxius Rulez!
Great Album from start to finish! From the opening bass licks of Guess Your Weight to the fuzzed out drums of "Flightless Bird", musically the album takes and regenerates the familiar sounds of rock, jazz, soul and gives them a new twist. Coupled with Mr. Voxius' lyrics, you too will be sitting at work whistling "Make $ @ Home" while contemplating your escape!

Mr. Voxius offers up some great frenetic weirdness on Atroxius--make $ at Home is a haunting tribute to prince of darkness; some raw expressive melodies make this CD get better after second and third listening...peculiar 2:40 gap in music in Flightless Bird indicate Mr. V is not restless...perhaps a hidden track? Overall a fun CD--

first time i heard this i was on my way to the store for toilet paper, fig newtons and light bulbs. was so into the cd though i just kept driving. ended up in one of those wooded areas with lots of assorted, albeit dead wildlife by the side of the road. never did get tp or fig newtons. and i've broken several toes due to my lack of light bulbs. but none of that could taint my affection for this disc - i'd recommend purchasing several. right now.

I love this album! I finally got it Friday & have already listened to it several times. I'm a fan of a wide variety of music genres & Mister Voxius doesn't disappoint...his sound is upbeat, his lyrics are thoughtful - but not too much so...the songs play great live, too!
