anybody here into boredoms, the band from japan? im hopelessly obsessed.
don't know them. what they play?
they're sort of "undescribable"...sometimes get pigeonholed as a "noise" band.
I got one album, forget which one, but could never really get into it...probably should give them another chance!
Do they have a recent album out or anything?
yeah, I know 'em -- literally!
way back in '95 the company I was doing post-production / video game work for had the Boredoms do the soundtrack and I was lucky enough to get the job of hand-painting (rotoscope) the music video that we shot. Yeesh...
Cool people, but not as cool as DEVO
whoa KW, thats rad! their earlier stuff is more "noisey" than the later, which is a lot more coherent. vision creation newsun is a great more recent album.
I sold all my Boredoms.
Because, I got bored.
Didn't the Boredoms also collaborate on some projects with Sonic Youth in years past? Is there a member named Yoshimi?
one of my top ten bands.
I saw the boredoms open up for Sonic Youth in 1991, they were so sick live i never got into the recordings so much.
i saw them last year, it was intense. i would love to have seen them in 91, but was way to young.
i saw them open for nirvana and was less than impressed.. just wasnt my thing..
they had a REALLY tough time from the crowd at the show
Anybody here ever listen to Melt Banana?
i have seen melt banana 3 or 4 times over the years. the last time being with fantamos, i wouldn't say I "listen" to them, but they are entertaining to watch.
i have been way into boris and dmbq lately though as far as japanese stuff goes.
I like the incredibly spastic sound that they achieve, although if I listened to them all the time, I would be bound become completely psychotic.
Merzbow is another interesting Japanese artist, but one who sometimes needs to be listened to in limited amounts at a time.
there was another artist from japan that had almost an exact same sound but i cant think of who it is right now..
i havent "listened" to merbow in a good 5 years
