    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?

    know 'em

    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 :D

    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.

    Didn't the Boredoms also collaborate on some projects with Sonic Youth in years past? Is there a member named Yoshimi?

    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 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.
