Mission of Burma
« on: September 16, 2020, 10:23:31 AM »
For about a month or so now I have been getting more and more into this band.

Really becoming an obsession lately.

I have to admit i had never really heard of them until the last month or so.

Anyone here like them/aware of them?

Formed in 1979, split in 83 had a reunion in the 00's.

Here is a track I love of theirs "That's When I Reach For My Revolver"

They used to get a lot of play on what in the US was called "College Radio" back in the 80s

Interesting you bring this up. Just yesterday I got started listening to that album, but I didn't have enough time to finish it. I understand they were pretty influential in the post-punk world ŕ la Gang of Four.

Loving them......very melodic and hook laden but with an edge.

The 00's reunion stuff I haven't dug far into yet but "vs" and "signals calls and marches" i think are top class.
