Only Mission Of Burma Can Save Us From Certain Festival-Related Blogging Fates

Mar 17th, 2008 // 7 Comments

I don’t honestly know what I’m more excited about: 5 P.M. EST rolling around so SXSW week will be over, or the fact that tomorrow morning I get to get up at the crack of dawn (or maybe 10), go to the record store, and buy the full slate of reissues collecting Boston p-punk legends Mission Of Burma’s pre-21st-century-comeback catalog. Yes, legitimate excitement over leaving my house to purchase records, even if they’re records initially released more than 25 years ago and that I already own. I’ll probably even watch the bonus DVDs! [YouTube/Matador Records]

    Roger Miller has flyers up all over my neighborhood offering guitar lessons. It’s like fantasy camp.

    i wonder why they’re putting academy fight song and max ernst at the beginning of the signals calls & marches ep and not at the end like on the old cd version of it.

    Academy Fight Song and Max Ernst were only part of the CD re-issue, not the original EP, I don’t think. They were originally on a separate single. But not sure why the difference between the original CD reissue and the latest reissue/remaster. Either way, I’m buying.

    I finally started catching up with these guys a few weeks ago. (I’m 23 so I have an excuse for missing them the first time around.) I’m kind of glad that paying utilities held me off from buying these records, cause now I can get the tricked out versions.

    I may follow you to a redundant purchase of MoB tomorrow, made even more redundant by the fact that I bough A Gun to the Head two years ago.

    @bcapirigi: “Academy Fight Song” and “Max Ernst” were the band’s first releases, before the EP, and are at the beginning for that reason.

    @mirrorball: The Matador reissues are remastered, include new liner notes and art, and all three have bonus DVDs with live shows attached.
