Mission Of Burma (2014)

Boston, MA

"Ahead of their time," "seminal" and, dare I say, "classic" are some of the terms bandied about when referring to these post-punk pioneers. There's nothing necessarily wrong with the descriptors, it's just that it devalues their continued influence in the rock pantheon. Imagine a world without Hüsker Dü, Archers of Loaf, or Dinosaur Jr. Pretty crappy, right? Well, you have Mission of Burma to thank for just about everything good in your record collection.
