Obliterati by Mission Of Burma

Album Reviews - Obliterati by Mission Of Burma

Being as old as Mission Of Burma should really be an impediment to rocking the fuck out. Formed in 1980 in response to the dark rock reconfigurations of Wire and Joy Division, the third studio album proper from these first-wave US post-punks kicks with a passion and inventiveness that’s seen them steam up the specs of everyone from Moby to Graham Coxon. Cacophonous guitar experiments swing from regimented crunch to freak-outs that narrowly skirt total chaos, but it's not all as serious as a vein in a forehead: frontman Roger Miller sneaks lyrics from disco queen Donna Summer’s ‘I Need Love' into ’Donna Sumeria', while the closing track is called 'Nancy Reagan’s Head'.
