Boredoms

The Boredoms are mysteriously, nosily, wonderfully delicious.

There's no way that any words can do their music, albums, or decades long career justice. They use noise, anti-noise, and everything inbetween to bring down quasars and supernovas so we can swim in the cosmic rays.

I have most of their recorded work, domestic and import, and have seen them live just once (in many circles just once is more than enough for a lifetime, such is the depth of their stage presence).

I intend on updating this section often, collecting as much information as possible. Just consider this an introduction, and a warning: the Boredoms can, and should, change your ears and life.
