Actually, YES, please, this would be a good idea. The girl I was DJ-ing with on Saturday (hi, Frances, if you ever read this...) played a Boredoms track which was utterly MENTAL and had me bouncing around like a rabid ferret. Crazy all-over-the-place Can/Faust style Krautrock buy played with a mind-boggling HEAVINESS that would make Zep or Deep Purple look like Belle and Sebastian. So if anyone can tell me what to look for, that would be great. Mmmmmmm. I am discovering so much yummy good music at the moment. this makes me happy!

hey kate!

it is I, Frances. getting onto this thread way too late I know....um, the thing I played was Vision Creation Newsun. If you heard me on Resonance last night, I was playing Super Are, off Super Ae. Yeah, get both of these albums, and MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL go see the Boredoms live.

I'm sure you have been told this many a time already. But that's because it's true. Live, they have this intense aura of of gonzo wisdom that completely blows my mind (man). And, like 'stirmonster' says, DRUMS! Drums that will make you dance like a mandrill on too much ibogane.

Anyways, was good to meet you the other night! F

As much as I like Super Ae and VCN, Soul Discharge is still my favorite Boredoms. Sure it's probably too weird for most people, but for making you bust a gut laughing while making your jaw drop in awe, there's nothing else quite like it.

o. nate (onate), Wednesday, 29 January 2003 16:41 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Soul Discharge seems to be the best of the early Boredoms stuff, which I never really liked all that much either. Certain tracks seem much heavier than any later material from that era, tho I'll admit I haven't looked into it much at all, so I could be wrong.

But VCN, Super Ae, and Super Roots 7 are all untouchable. I'm liking the new Seiichi Yamamoto album too, but it's nothing like those others. (very quiet/pretty)

I'm not sure what you mean by "heavier" but Soul Discharge was less "heavy" in the usual rock sense (loud guitars, pounding drums, riffage) than the early Boredoms material that preceded it, on which they sounded more than a bit like a Japanese Butthole Surfers.

one month passes...
I like Chocolate Synthesizer, which I just got recently. They manage to pick out a lot of the best bits of punk and thrash (I don't even know what that is, but I think I sort of do know anyway), just going right for the fun part, without any context as an excuse. Hearing some of this, I find myself thinking: "Oh yeah, that's what I liked about punk when I first started hearing it." Not that its sources are limited to punk. I could get tired of the constant shuffling around though. We'll see.

(I hear a lot of echoes of the Butthole Surfers here, but maybe that's because they just happen to the band closest to this sort of thing that I have listened to the most in the last ten years.)

here's my stock response i pasted out of the Boredoms:POO thread cos i'm too luddite to be able to link to it:
yeh - super ae is OK if ye forget the bits that sound like pete townshend circa tommy. perhaps the most amon duul of the reckids they've done. VCN is more or less a 70min cover version of can's "future days" (in a good way). pop tatari and wow2 always strick me as a badly produced heavy amateur metal band like you might see in any pub or student union bar no tunes v. ploddy not "motorik" but het how wacky they got a trumpet player. if you want the kerayzee spazz annoying boredoms the go for soul discharge '77 is good but i like chocolate synthesizer better.

bob snoom, Friday, 30 May 2003 12:03 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

So this is interesting. I'm not suprised about the love here for the "new" boredoms, but I am suprised about the non-rating of the earlier material. I can't help feeling this derives more from some unaccountable current "taste" rather than the quality of the material, i.e. fractured collage art spazz punk is now dated to the 90's while proggy offshoots of the same seem of the moment.

The word "heavy" has come up a lot here, and the other thread talked about "groove". The earlier boredoms had their moments of these, but would subvert the expectations these set up rather than run with them, as the more recent boredoms do. I can see why the latter might make for a more "enjoyable" listening experience. But the earlier boredoms has its own pleasures, even if they aren't related to coherence. My own feeling listening to those records is that they are like a huge disorganized messy pile of brilliant half-realized things. I'd say Chocolate Synthesizer is the apex of this. And it somehow manages to be idiotic and cerebral, funny and serious, arty and artless all at once.

The "new" boredoms go to the opposite extreme--monomaniacal intensity--which somehow makes perfect sense to me. There's an extremity and obsession in ALL their "phases", which give their stylistic shifts a coherence below their surfaces.

So, yes, some of their recordings on their own are probably worth searching over others (I'll defer to above recommendations), but this is also a band that can be appreciated in its totality and (for me, at least) transcends an easy accounting by search and destroy.

I assume you're talking about "Super Going", that guitar tone & the Moonian cymbal wash -- that's one of my favorite tracks on the album. But then, I like Tommy too, so hey.

EY3 has been DJ-ing, he and Yoshimi have been recording (as late as last year). The Boredoms as a group disbanded about 4 years ago after their last show at Fuji-Rock when Seiichi Yamamoto threw his guitar down and shattered it.

the splinter band with EY3 and Y0shimi is known as either V00redoms or 7v07 depending on the amount of drums or electronics or DJ-ing is involved. EY3 has been DJ-ing all over Japan in the last month, Yoshimi has SAIC0BABA and her okinowan/hawaiian hardcore band SUNPM0:00oo, and OoioO is currently on hiatus.

Sam J. (samjeff), Friday, 30 May 2003 15:40 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

For (ATP festival promoters) The Foundation, it was advantageous to book the current incarnation splinter group as The Boredoms but the band that was known throughout the 1990s as The Boredoms is no longer. They broke up at their peak, a feat very few bands have the courage to do. The current 7v07 that will be playing ATP in a few weeks (also as "The Boredoms") is no similar to The Boredoms as UFO or Die.

gygax! (gygax!), Friday, 30 May 2003 15:51 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

The Matt Groening ATP flier has "The Boredoms" listed as well. Shady...

And as for early Boredoms, the reason I'm a bit biased and ignore this material despite later albums being some of my faves is because the first Boredoms record I ever bought was Super Roots 1 about 4-5 years ago. I knew nothing about it, vaguely recalled some Boredoms hype, and bought it because it was cheap. Damn near put me off on the Boredoms forevar. Felt like I was on the receiving end of some prank they'd pulled.

Prob. a little silly to still have this bias but I'm a small man!

I have been listening to this mp3 of a song called (Star) for two hours now and it is absolutely fabulous. Perfect drumming (not too tribal), echoing synthesizer sounding like a crossover of a jew's harp and a theremin. And after a while the track falls apart, implodes into noise. Like trying to listen to the radio when turning the wavelength modulator. At the end it gets back into track. Which record is this from? And which is the most essential album of theirs?

alex in mainhattan (alex63), Saturday, 31 May 2003 11:40 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

"Star" (or the symbol for a star) is the second track on Vision Creation Newsun. See above for recs - if you like that, go for VCN, Super ae or possibly Super Roots 7.

dleone (dleone), Saturday, 31 May 2003 15:32 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

So far I don't like VCN nearly as much as the other two Boredoms CDs I have, but one thing that impresses me (with Super ae and VCN) is that they have essentially made "Krautrock" albums that are as good as most of the original Krautrock I heard, and completely convincing as a continuation of that sort of approach.

Rockist Scientist, Sunday, 1 June 2003 18:08 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

About the Vooredoms/7v07 apperance at All Tomorrow's Parties: there are rumors circulating around the internet that this month's ATP Festival in LA has been cancelled and/or postponed until September. I really hope it's not true, but does anyone know anything about this? The ATP web site (www.atpfestival.com) isn't responding.

The remix of VCN by eYe is superior to the original, better than Super AE, but not as good as Pop Tatari, Super Roots 6 or 7.

WOW2 has just been released in the UK, but i'd stear clear if you're not a fan of Onanie Bomb or Soul Discharge.

How are the Boredoms regarded in Japan? Are they music superstars, a national treasure? Is Eye a media hero? (Without knowing, I would guess that they must have, at the very least, the status that Sonic Youth has in the U.S. - if not even more exposure/popularity/"institutional" respect.)

Speaking of rarities, to anyone who had been pulling their hair out looking for an affordable copy of SR5, apparently, many copies have been "discovered", and it's available for regular Japanese import prices now. I actually got it on ebay shortly after this happened for about $25 -- a far cry from the $60+ you might see it for previously.

Yeah around 1998 or so Amoeba in SF had like three copies of every Boredoms release for about $5 each. That was my intro -- I picked up the first Super Roots after reading about them in the Spin guide. Didn't care for it.

Here's an honest question for the Boredoms fans: What do you think their standing would be if they'd broken up before Super Roots 7 or Super Ae?

Mark (MarkR), Tuesday, 3 June 2003 17:49 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I think they'd have become legends, especially because ending a career with an album like SR6, after everything that preceded it, would have been pretty darn enigmatic.

Rockist Scientist, Wednesday, 4 June 2003 07:55 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

It's true, not all the Super Roots stuff is essential. SR 7 is, though (if you like their last two albums).

Also worth tracking down are the singles that preceded Super ARe and VCN. They are "Super Go!!!" and "Vision Creation Newsun". Confusingly, the latter has the same name as the album but is a forty minute ep with an edit of the first track on VCN, a pretty good remix of stuff from that album, and a phenomenal live track that they played under a solar eclipse in '99. Forced Exposure is selling it (and copies of Super Roots 5 and 8, apparently).

If you can track down "Super Go" on vinyl, the b-side (different from the 2nd track on the CD version) is also really good. Though to be fair, it's a longer mix of the song that appears as "Super Now" on the comp CD that commemorated the 2002 All Tomorrow's Parties in LA. So if you have that, you probably don't need to spend the $20 or whatever...

dleone--Is Rebore 0 that good? I heard two of the other Rebores and wasn't the slightest bit impressed.

Rebore is like Magical Mystery Tour to VCN's Sgt Pepper. It's about that different, and that good.

I am listening to POP TATARI and I think it sounds like the Muppets doing a musical spectacular where they ape:

- James Brown
- The Stooges
- A bunch of cannibals
- Punk Rock
- Captain Beefheart
- Forcefield (obviously traveling through time to do so)


THIS WAS ON A MAJOR LABEL?

I don't know if I like it. People compare SOUL DISCHARGE to Lightning Bolt? This album seems pretty far off from the LASER BEASTS.

Jon Williams (ex machina), Wednesday, 11 June 2003 01:10 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

POP TATARI sounds like some students with a heavy metal band trying way too hard to be wacky. the tunes aren't good the riffs aren't good, but hey! they dress up silly, make squawk noises, and they're Japanese! yu know like "Akira" or something. unless you really haven't heard a lot of music it really isn't very good. similar with pop tatari, what's that you say ? a band that sounds as "great" as TAD in their prime (?) with a trumpet player, oh you spoilin us mister zorn. BALLS.
soul discharge IS good. annoying on purpose this time WITH good tunes i stand up for it. it's better than ripping off Can and Amon Duul for a living.

two reviews of kila kila kila:

"the new ooioo record is like Sun Ra meets Serge Gainsbourge A nite remember a day forgotten shooting out into space on a breath, a pregnant pause and then a skidding lift where you land no one knows... "
-Kim Gordon

"In a perfect world, Roger Dean would be banging on yoshimi's door, begging to do thier covers, their stage set, their shoes. I can't quite place why OOIOO make me think of Yes, especially as i like OOIOO a lot more. but i guess it's because OOIOO fufill what i always hoped Yes would do for me, elegantly articulate endless planes of otherness. i don't know what that means, but i hoped for it! OOIOO's new albums sounds even more assured than their previous records, and sounds more intimate, up front and cozy, right in your front room. so before they arrive, clean up, put away your laundry, and was the dishes, they need as much space as you can give them."
-Jim O'Rourke.

sounds like the same v00redoms material from previous shows although
"super are" has that "ouine ni oisharu ni, ine aruka IN THE SUN" line, the "in the sun" bit reprised on the 9th track on VCN.

when EY3 moved (the band?) to okinawa after the boredoms broke up, there were rumors of sun-god cult worship.

wolf eyes is quite tempting, it's 10 quid though and i have no desire to see black dice again, and i'm not convinced wolf eyes are worth 10 quid on their own.

also, i just bought the last two tickets to the lightning bolt gig on friday :-)

last night: lightning bolt might be the best live band i've ever seen. the 5 mins or so i spent down the front were easily the most intense but also most fun experience i've had at a concert - everyone jumping around like crazy, but no aggression. fantastic. anna loved them too.

black dice - better than last time i saw them. still a bit dull though. we were sat down and it all felt a bit weird.

boredoms - amazing. i kinda presume the stuff at the beginning with the microphone was just miming, but whatever, still an incredible bit of stagemanship. and it just carried on being great. more bands need 3 drummers.

so yeah, it was good. i kinda feel like i'm not praising it enough, but i don't really know how to...

The long awaited first release of Zorn's most recent and most powerful Masada unit. A true downtown supergroup, blending the raw power of Naked City with the improvisational madness of Cobra and the lyrical soul of the Masada songbook, Electric Masada is considered by many to be the most exciting band Zorn has ever had. This set, the taut climax of a three night run at Tonic, features the full octet at its wildest and most creative. Incredible solos, jaw dropping ensemble conductions and much more.

VCN reminds me of what I got to not like about certain fusion/prog. things a long while back. I do like some parts of it, but not the inspirational propulsive drumming sections.

Rockist Scientist, Friday, 28 May 2004 12:45 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I kinda think that the drums are too low in the mix for most of the propulsive heavy electronics + guitar stuff. It sounds better if you turn up the bass (or get a real stereo obv.).

Also, I noticed some of the drum stuff has sounds like this Balinese drum cuing stuff I heard this year.

I only heard Super Roots 5 once; it was like an hour-long Bad Brains song. I think eYe credits it as the turning point in the Bore discog. Never seen a copy...

sexyDancer, Thursday, 3 June 2004 17:36 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Of the ones you listed, Super Roots 6 is best. Being as you tend to also like a bunch of noisier stuff, you might actually like Super Roots 5 (not sure if it's still as rare as it used to be - apparently, someone "found" a bunch of copies stored in a Warner Japan warehouse last year, and you started seeing them pop up pretty cheap on ebay). Anyway, it's not punk, more like an hour long noise-ambient thing, mostly cymbals and subtle sound effects. Pretty hard to take I think if you're listening closely the whole time, but not bad to use as strange background music.

Super Roots 3 is the one that sounds like Bad Brains to me, a 30 minute hardcore punk song, and I would agree is the turning point in their discography from playing fragmented splice-punk into playing more groove oriented stuff. But this isn't groove, it's hardcore, and really not *that* interesting. SR 1&2 are similar to what they were doing on Choc Synth and Pop Tatari. I think SR2 was actually only ever available with the Japanese issue of Choc Synth, though I downloaded it from somewhere, so you can find it.

jon, of your list above, super roots 6 is most essential.

from dleone's pitchfork review today:
1988's Onanie Bomb Meets the Sex Pistols ("onanie" being Japanese slang for "female masturbation")

"Onanie Bomb" is the rough English translation of Genbaku Onanies, the very first hardcore band from Japan. "Onanie" is a transliteration of the latin "onanism" which pertains to either sex last time i checked! :-D

By saying "Genbaku Onanies meets the Sex Pistols" they were trying to clue in potential listeners to what the band's influences were.

gygax! (gygax!), Monday, 7 June 2004 14:40 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

one more thing jon, that particular set was on a summer afternoon in 1995, the day of an awesome show at the palace in hollywood with thinking fellers union local 282. we ate at a mediocre chinese place across the street (is that place still there?). that was the debut of the "super ae" material in the usa.

What does "kansai" mean?

Also: Nankai Hawkwind - RFI? (Eye, Nishida of Danse Macabre and Edi from Genbaku Onanies)

Apparently there was a whole series of noise bands whose names were puns on sports team + other band! and some compillation of said bands called Aiyoku Jinmin Juni Kyudan.

The liner notes go on about PRO WRESTLING pun noise bands!

Also, the notes talk about the idea of playing classic punk songs really slow. Hmmm...

Just heard Super Ae for the first time tonight. For the first ten minutes or so I was like "ah, this isn't anything special", but after hearing where it went from there, wow. This is the shit right here. Also got VCN which I only heard like twice 3 years ago, I'll give it a spin later tonight. Thanks for the tip on Super Ae, Jon.

two weeks pass...
from my friend in tokyo:

i got to see Mr. eY3's DJ-ing. he played many good
records. i was looking at turntables all the time. things
he played are... late 70's rare disco tracks, tricky and
sweet arranged house tunes. all tracks are danceable.
i thought his heart is really sweet.

i had a chance to talk to him once. after his DJ-ing
i saw some nameless band show. when i saw them,
i noticed eY3 was next to me. that's pretty awesome.
it's the best show i've ever seen this year. the band
called "flying rhythms" is three member. one drummer
playing drums and e-pad, one percussionist from
senegal playing djenbe, conga and some african
instruments, and one is dub mixer. their sound is
supper cosmic. you can hear a sample from their
album hear.
http://www.lastrum.co.jp/flyingrhythms/
i'm sure you like this sound. just wanted to tell you
about this band. thier 1st album was released about
a week ago. it's produced by yamabe keiji who has
a great record store named los apson? in tokyo.
i don't have yet. but i will buy next weekend.

oh maybe i might be going to see DJ eY3 next
saturday. if i could, i'll try to talk to him. he should be
friendly, i think.

I asked Dean Ween about Z-Rock Hawaii:

A- I get asked this so often that I figured it’s time to answer it. Way, way, back (like in 1993) Andrew Weiss took me to see Boredoms first in Philadelphia, and then again in Hoboken a day or two later. They were the heaviest band I had ever seen since the Butthole Surfers, but on a similar level of psychedelic transcendence with a Japanese point of reference that was unlike anything before or since. Last time I saw them a few years ago they were just as heavy and still evolving. At the time not a lot of people knew their music stateside, but the singer of the the band Yamatsuka Eye had released a solo album full of samples of “The Pod” so we knew he was a fan. After meeting at these 2 shows we arranged for him to come to our studio (we were working on “Chocolate and Cheese” in Pennington, NJ) and he stayed with me and my family for about a week. His English was minimal at best and he spent the whole time at my house roughhousing with my border collie Jimmy, which I loved. He couldn’t get enough of Jimmy, throwing the ball, chasing the stick, it was incredible to see and Jimmy loved it, being a Border Collie and all. Not being able to really communicate in the studio was an advantage, we tried anything and everything. He spent time inventing contraptions to sing through, like an Evian bottle as a megaphone taped to a snare head with the other side mic’ed up with vibrating snares, shit like that. He was an animal on the microphone. One night he and I were driving home at 3am and a deer jumped in front of my little Nissan. I totalled the car and the deer lay dead, steaming in the road. Eye was going batshit, I dunno if he’d ever seen a deer in person and I was laughing my ass off, it’s pretty typical around here to run into deer and I hated the car. Anyway, after he left he went back to Japan and the Boredoms wrote the second half of the album and mailed it over to us. We overdubbed our tracks and that was that. Eye named the band “Z-Rock Hawaii” which was the most perfect name in the world for the record. In the studio it was just me, Aaron, and Andrew Weiss and Eye. I think Claude may have played some drums on there too actually. We did some 4-tracking at my house which I’ve never been able to find for some reason.

EYE Q&A re: Z-Rock Hawaii—August, 2009

How did the Z-Rock Hawaii project come about?
I don’t remember exactly, but I loved Ween so I was really excited when they talked to me about it.

What do you remember about working with Ween? How was the music composed and recorded? Did you actually perform in the same room with them?
I was staying at Mickey’s house. I’m pretty sure it was the house they called “The Pod." Andrew was the engineer. I don’t remember exactly how we wrote the songs, but I remember it being fun.

Were you a fan of Ween before you met them? What do you enjoy about their music?
Of course I was a fan. There’s something natural about their music. Something really laid-back and spontaneous.

Since Z-Rock Hawaii was recorded around the same time as Chocolate and Cheese, do you remember hearing anything from that album before it was released? If so, what was your opinion of the material?
Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to listen to it back then.

Do you have any other impressions of Chocolate and Cheese? Was it influential to the Boredoms at all?
I’m not sure. I really love it, but I don’t know if it had an influence on the Boredoms.

Do you notice any general similarities between Ween and the Boredoms?
Maybe it’s that we’re all geeks? (I hope that doesn’t sound rude.)

Seadrum/House of Sun-era Boredoms drummer EDA has a band called Adreena Adreena and they are playing this Thursday at Iklectik in London, they look pretty interesting, it's EDA playing solo kit and samples/toys with a huge sphere above his head onto which the other member projects images.

Does anyone know if there are any bootlegs of the legendary Fuji-Rock show that was supposedly so good that it drove Yamamoto to quit?

I already had more transformative live bore experiences than I deserve

1992 seattle just after PT
Vooredoms the first time I saw that lineup
77 boadrum

All changed my life. Maybe if I’d seen super go 1999 it would have broken my input port

Tbh after the incredible 2007 there were somewhat diminishing returns for me in the next couple of annual eye rituals.

Boredoms - Soul Discharge (1989) i've been Eye-ing (ha!) this on vinyl for a while and scooped up a relatively cheap copy off ebay the other day. can't wait to hear it!

Boredoms records are super expensive but this one has such an awesome album cover i've wanted this for years. might have to invest in some Super Roots as well...

That was my intro to boredoms in 91. I could not believe my ears. It was like if mid 80s buttholes got superevolved

"Yamatsuka Eye had released a solo album full of samples of “The Pod”"

What Eye album is being referenced here?

trux tracker (edges), Wednesday, 15 May 2019 20:21 (one month ago) Permalink

good question!

Z-Rock Hawaii was recorded in 1994 (released two years later) so it must be from then or before, maybe Chocolate Synthesizer or Super Roots?

...yet neither of those are eYe solo albums.

It's Hanatarash 4: AIDS-a-delic
