Boomkat Product Review:
The material on this third Super Roots release immediately preceded the release of the Chocolate Synthesizer album, in what would prove to be a big year for the band - they even played on that year's Lollapalooza tour. It's hard to envisage Boredoms as a commercially attractive proposition on the grounds of a release like this, however. Super Roots 3 consists of a single, half-hour long track, 'Hard Trance Takeaway (Karaoke of Cosmos)' which is a slab of frantic drumming and fuzzed-out guitar goop flowing like endless streams of lava. I certainly wouldn't want to stipulate that the band might have been in some way er... chemically assisted on this performance, but how on earth could anyone keep up that relentlessly pummelling onslaught for a full thirty minutes? A howl from something just about recognisable as a human voice both introduces and concludes the jam, leaving some three minutes of silence at the end for a bit of quiet reflection. Mental.
