Pain Act (2002)
The Conquering Pain Act is PROVANs second six-song EP.
Whereas their 1999 debut EP Act Like Youve Been There
Before represented the spirit of a band of wit and intelligence
perfecting the three-minute pop song, The Conquering Pain
Act demonstrates a band no less committed to their craft,
but looking to deliver the goods on a much more visceral level.
Rough and distressed; urgent and compelling; The Conquering
Pain Act is a compilation of songs recorded largely under
cover of darkness, in sporadic bursts and occasionally outside
the boundary of law -- an exorcism through the medium of pop
Act Like Youve Been There Before (1999)
PROVANs six song debut. Bright, disjointed guitar interplay
and crisp, pop melodies.
Both available from Edna Records ($6
each, postage paid)

John Hovorka and the Dawn of Mechanized Farming (2004)
Warped version of PROVAN rocks out with
transplanted Boston rock legend John Hovorka. Kinda like
when Canned Heat backed up John Lee Hooker.
