498Re: Super Roots 5
- Aug 4, 2002i'm sorry, but i'm going to have to speak up on behalf of the
glorious cacaphony that is WOW2. there are moments on this record in
which an impulse jostles my body into blind frenzy of dance (2:00
minutes into DOMSBORE or 1:20 minutes into MOGO?). and on that note,
i think this record showcases certain qualities not captured on other
records. A) yoshimi as a drummer/trumpeter and a vocalist is in top
form on this record. this is definitely my favorite yoshimi record.
B)the absence of cut-paste allows us to witness the boredoms in their
most primal state. they are completely unhinged from eye's
production techniques and i'm not slamming eye's production, but it's
just here we see boredoms as a true live unit. in that sense this is
their most down-to-earth production to date. C) JUST LISTEN TO THIS
RECORD FOR GOD-SAKES! How could we live with out JET NET or HEPS or
DOMSDOMS or ON (the first song i ever heard by the boredoms). i
dunno, if this doesn't convince you listen to the cd as many times as
possible. it's just that WOW2 (along with Soul Discharge and Super
AE) are records that personally take me back to some of the best
times in my life, so i always defend them.
ps note that WOW2 was produced by boredoms and John Zorn.
