January 30, 2010

Its hard for me to believe that its been exactly two years since I last saw Mission of Burma. On that night in Brooklyn, the band performed their standard high intensity volume show which we caught from the floor — my ears were ringing for days. Last night at Bowery, from our safe perch at the balcony rail, the sonic blast was less intense and our vantage point permitted a close examination of the work of the fourth member of the band, sound tech/tape wizard Bob Weston. While last night’s material tended primarily towards the three post “reunion” albums, old timers in the crowd were treated to terrific versions of “Certain Fate”, “Mica”, personal favorite “Academy Fight Song”, along with a fairly obscure Yardbirds cover.

This show was recorded from our standard location at this venue and the sound is excellent. Enjoy!
