SSION is touring North America this fall, and I'm making a list of all the words that rhyme with their name

Crayon. It’s pronounced exactly the way it looks. Cray-on. Not cray-un, not cran, and most definitely not crown.

Even though I always try to pronounce words and names correctly, SSION trips me up. Would anyone mind if I pronounced SSION a little differently? When I first saw it, I wanted it to rhyme with the French pronunciation of passion, and that’s how it sounded in my head. Ss-ee-on. I assume, however, that it’s actually pronounced so that it rhymes with words such as mission and confession and transmission and emission, which isn’t so bad. But still.

Anyway, the glam-punk group put out an LP called Bent as a self-release last year (TMT Review), and on September 18 it’ll be out more officially on Dovecote. To celebrate, they’ll hit the road for their “Live & Wet” tour, which I hope features inflatable pools and a water slide. Check out “Listen to the Grrrls” on The Fader, and just pronounce “grrrls” however the hell you want.
