i found most of the pre-super ae records used. people who picked up that shit in the wake of nirvana mania dropped it like a day later.

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?

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.

dleone (dleone), Tuesday, 3 June 2003 17:57 (seventeen years ago) link

i think they'd be legends too, but more in a "90s curio" kinda way

IIRC, wasn't there some Boredoms related album with a Gummi Worm inside the CD spine?

Jon Williams (ex machina), Tuesday, 3 June 2003 19:18 (seventeen years ago) link

That's a Boris CD, actually, Jon.

a lot of the SUPER ROOTS stuff i heard is really no better than a bunch of 90s cassette releases on OSKA / chocolate monk - and that's not to say it's bad. it will not redeem your soul, though.

It's good to hear some balance, bob.

Rockist Scientist, Wednesday, 4 June 2003 07:55 (seventeen years ago) link

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...

I just ordered SR7+8, Rebore 1+3, Chocolate Synth, POP TATARI and VCN EP.

What is SR5 like?

Which places carry DJ Pica Pica Pica?

Jon Williams (ex machina), Wednesday, 4 June 2003 15:57 (seventeen years ago) link

I thought Forced Exposure carried DJ Pica Pica Pica, but I could be wrong. Rebore Vol 0 is really the way to go, even if you own VCN.

I got deleted from friendster for making all my band names be fish related:


and for claiming friendster was a marketing scam in my profile

and for being "THE AZZ WIZARD"

and for having fake profiles

Jon Williams (ex machina), Wednesday, 4 June 2003 16:25 (seventeen years ago) link

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

rw, Wednesday, 4 June 2003 18:29 (seventeen years ago) link

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

dleone (dleone), Wednesday, 4 June 2003 18:33 (seventeen years ago) link

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)


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) link

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.

new OoioO record KILA KILA KILA out this week [warning: m0mus picture if you scroll down], record release party in kyoto this saturday...

it's their first record in 3 years, they're pared down to a trio now, they changed their name to "the OoioO"... more later.

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 8 July 2003 13:09 (sixteen years ago) link

That picture of Yoshimi looks way better than she actually looks. What label is this on? Domestic release? Oh yeah, more later.

dleone (dleone), Tuesday, 8 July 2003 13:24 (sixteen years ago) link

i dunno d., that looks just like yoshimi to me.

KILA KILA KILA is on nigo's label (ape sounds). he's put out the vinyl for ooioo before but this will be the first time he's putting out the CDs too.

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 8 July 2003 16:59 (sixteen years ago) link

domestic release: how about never, does never work for you?

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 8 July 2003 17:00 (sixteen years ago) link

If someone can point me in the direction of a good album produced by any Japanese artist in the world, ever, in the history of mankind I would be very grateful. I can't quite believe that a nation of the size of Japan can ONLY produce incontinent, incoherent and self-indulgent plagiarists and obcurantists?!?!????

Is OOIOO dance party safe?

Is OOIOO dance party safe?

If you like to party out of bounds.

Mark (MarkR), Wednesday, 16 July 2003 13:02 (sixteen years ago) link

I think of it as Dance Party USA but in Japanese.

Is Kila Kila Kila good or what?

dleone (dleone), Wednesday, 16 July 2003 13:11 (sixteen years ago) link

i haven't heard it yet! I want to but I am stuck at work dleone, you gotta get me out of here.

gygax! (gygax!), Wednesday, 16 July 2003 13:16 (sixteen years ago) link

Well I haven't heard it either. But good news, they're getting rid of all of us in October, so I won't have work to worry about then.

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.

gygax! (gygax!), Wednesday, 30 July 2003 17:20 (sixteen years ago) link

Sun Ra doesn't need to meet anyone else in order to be interesting.

kila kila kila domestic release on thrill jockey in february 04...

still no domestic release of the epic masterwork gold and green

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 25 November 2003 18:05 (sixteen years ago) link

I got this record shortly after my post from the summer. Can't say I thought it was that interesting. I probably should listen to it again; haven't heard it since listening a couple of times after I bought it.

dleone (dleone), Tuesday, 25 November 2003 18:12 (sixteen years ago) link

i have a good suggestion, treat the first 2 songs as bonus tracks.

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 25 November 2003 18:13 (sixteen years ago) link

also: Spring Tour of USA for OoioO

Also, Damo Suzuki is playing with Yammato in Japan :(
