Wow, I never thought I'd live to see the day that Mission of Burma was featured on the front page of a major website (it was on my Yahoo! homepage). I'm glad the band is getting the recognition it justly deserves. Their last two albums following their reunion (OnOffOn and The Obliterati) are stomping -- it's like their 15-20 year hiatus just distilled the energy, dynamism and intensity of their avant-garde brand of indie rock. Talk about Saturn devouring its children -- their essential message to all alternative and indie rock bands of today is "You've been erased."
