Song of the Day - June 2, 2006


Mission of Burma is back with a great album The Obliterati. They are an essential band in rock history, one of the missing links between the punk and post-punk eras. If you missed out the first time around, now is your chance. The Obliterati is full of music that I love, combining witty insight, angst, anger, dissonance, and energy. Check out great tracks like "Let Yourself Go" with its staccato rhythms, the echoing guitars of "1001 Pleasant Dreams," and the pounding drumbeats of "Good, Not Great." "Donna Sumeria" is my favorite track. A truly emotional experience, the guitars, bass, and drums combine to create a force of nature that would demolish everything in its path, while simultaneously having a little fun with the Donna Summer tune "I Feel Love."

To be able to seamlessly intertwine the desert of sumeria and a disco classic takes both skill and cajones.

My fave, though is the line from "Nancy Reagan's Head":

And I'm haunted by the freakish size of Nancy Reagan's head
No way that thing came with that body
