      Was just a bit of a joke. But I think dismissing it as squeaky and bleepy like afrirampo is odd, as the trajectory from G&G --> Feather Float --> Kila Kila Kila (and their recent live stuff) leads right to Taiga. I also think this really tips its hat to OOIOO s/t in the process.

      I like that OOIOO is a bit like a musical tree, and replays its own songs a few times. I also really enjoy the noise, I thought Kila Kila Kila was a bit too soft.

      Complain all you want, but a lot of us here really like this record, and you said that we were 'off the mark.' I think it;s just that ome of us enjoy the noise and boredomsey-mess that OOIOO can be, some don't. Doesn't make us wrong. We just have different tastes.

      And James, I couldn't agree with you more. I have been waiting for years to see the boredoms, and walked out of the philly show halfway through after seeing the rehashed drum circle. I think OOIOO is moving in a direction at least, and they are a lot more interesting to me lately than the Boredoms (I thought Seadrum /HoS was amazing, though--). At least OOIOO is moving in a direction and creating new material.

      Man, this is gonna get me crucified on the boredoms list.

      pardon me, i didn't understand that this forum was only for praise. it will be very
      interesting to read people constantly fawning over every boredoms related release.
      thanks for your help.
