      Hey, I'm Spencer and I'm new to this group. (If
      you're a member of the e-mail list also on Yahoo!, you
      will realize I just posted this very same thing there,
      because I'm lazy, but also because I figured it was a
      suitable intro.)<br><br>I don't know what kind of action
      takes place here but it doesn't matter, because I'm
      currently obsessed with the Boredoms. I don't have all that
      they've released, but I'm working on it. Just yesterday I
      bought UFO or Die's "Cassettetape Superstar," which
      turns out to be a great record. As for the rest, I
      currently own "Pop Tatari," "Chocolate Synthesizer," "Super
      Roots 7," "Super Are" (one of my favorite albums ever),
      and "Vision Creation Newsun"; "Feather Float" by
      OOIOO; and the DJ Pica Pica Pica record. I bought "Nani
      Nani" by Eye w/John Zorn, but sadly, I lost it a while
      back. I've also bought the original "Super Roots,"
      "Rebore Vol. 0: Vision Recreation," and "Imago" by Rovo,
      but I didn't think they were great enough to keep
      around. Then again, I sell a lot of CDs just to buy more,
      and in this case, it will be to buy more Boredoms--
      namely, a couple of Hanatarash live discs that I know my
      local mega-indie record store has in stock, or at
      least, used to have in stock. They also have a couple
      other "Rebore"s but I don't know if those are
      good.<br><br>So, if anyone's alive around here, speak up if you
      can. Are the other "Rebore"s worth getting? Is there
      anything I haven't listed that I should purchase before
      dying? What is a Boredoms live show
      like?<br><br>...speaking of which, I'm seeing them at All Tomorrow's
      Parties here in Los Angeles in March. They're really the
      main reason I'm even going at
      all.<br><br>-Spencer<br><br>p.s. Other bands I like: Stereolab, Soul Coughing,
      They Might Be Giants, the Residents (of course), the
      Microphones, Laurie Anderson, Radiohead... many many many

        wow i drove out from chicago to catch that pontiac MI show !!! Talk
        about unreal!!! I was worried about how the show would be without
        yoshikawa but they just transcended anything i was even remotely
        expecting....that show was even better than the Chicago show the next
        night primarily because their sound guy was a bit off on his timing
        on many effects...but pontiac was just absolutely perfect!
