Re: New Release????
- i don't wanna sound like a hippy or anything, but i think the
boredoms are for everyone! i was once a naive punk kid, who was
afraid to try something new, but all it really took was one dedicated
listen. i don't think the boredoms are a tough sell. i've only seen
them once(at atp) and everyone who was around me (except for my
friend) had no idea who the boredoms were. they were all there to see
sleater keanney and aphex twin. but many of them (including girls)
loved it. and if they were somewhat confused, i looked at them and
said "you just saw the boredoms. they are not underground, but
superground. now you should buy their all their albums. thank you".
which brings me to my next point: everyone should encourage everyone
at boredoms (or anyother japanese band) to have a great time and let
loose. i couldn't give two shits whether they're boys or girls and
anyway i know plenty of female boredoms fans (not as many as guys, i
know), but fuck it; my future wife or whatever will be a bigger bore
fan, than me and will have "hanatarash" tatooed on her ass!
