ROCK OF ASIAN: Mission of Burma

July 22nd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

I’m a huge fan of veteran rockers doing their thing foreva and eva and eva, so when seminal post-punk (or as I like to call them, thinking man’s punk) band Mission of Burma resurfaced in 2002, I gave a tiny cheer.

MOB just announced their forthcoming release: The Sound, The Speed, The Light, with all of complicated posturings of… a veteran thinking man’s band. According to Consequence of Sound, the album “is divided into four ‘sets,’ or suites of three songs, each of which explore moods or colors. Lyrical topics covered include ‘alcoholism to fleshly concerns.’”

Pretentious, sure. But it still sounds fucking great, and infinitely better than the caca kids are calling punk these days anyway.

Now can somebody please tell me that the Jawbreaker’s reunion rumors are true, so I can die happy?
