I posted this over at the corksniffin' site too. MoB has a new release entitled Unsound. It's good (quite), spiky, smart, twisty, and quite "Burma-ese", if you like that sort of thing (I know I sure do)!
Fans? Fellow (t)ravelers? Runnin' dawgs?
If it's totally not your cup of, Alejandro Escovedo's newest release, Big Station, is also damn good, but from down a different alley.

So--- not many Mission of Burma fans in here?

'Onoffon' is great record!
Not a huge fan but I always liked that one.
I may pick up Unsound. I like the little bit of it I've heard that someone posted on youtube.

The Same Mission of Burma from Boston in the early 1980's?

Same band. The person who did the tape manipulation for them in the early days is not with them, but the three instrument players and singers are all the same.
I'm a big fan... I'll have to look into their new stuff. I hear good things about the new album. For anyone who doesn't know, check them out... they're great.

Hugely influential in Boston rock. The one time I took my hands off my guitar and just stopped playing was at party when I looked up and saw Roger Miller watching me play. I hear great things about heir new album.

Big fan here, though I admit I haven't heard any of their post-reformation albums.
"vs." is an all-time favorite.
Very singular band.
