boredoms - Super Roots
This originally surfaced on Reprise back in 1993, at a time when the band were being championed by the likes of Sonic Youth and Nirvana. The Super Roots series was like a series of bulletins from the band's most experimental frontier, documenting their work in a state of transition, or in the form of raw, as yet unshaped ideas. This first instalment of the series clocks in at just under twenty minutes and is made up of chaotic sketches, like the insane brass-fuelled march, 'Monster Rex & S*und'A'R*undus' or 'EAR?WIG?WEB?', which sounds like it's played by a budget gamelan orchestra, using bits of glass and metal as shambling tuned percussion. '96 Teenage Bondage' is a gloriously messy garage rock joint, marking out the more commercially-appealing, grunge-friendly side of the band's work. It's probably the closest Super Roots comes to making sense as a release on a major label. Essential for fans who missed this first time around, Super Roots is simultaneously totally nuts and utterly joyous.
