Boredoms Super Roots Marvelously Splendid Post

Yet again, pilgrims, the internet at my dwelling has been severed. This is a combination of my and Brosef's incompetency. Nevertheless, college has the most fantastically fast internet, that is available in places with couches which pleases me greatly. Cutting to the chase, I am a fan of noise naturally a fan of Boredoms. One fevered night I felt compelled to download and then over the course of the following 3 days listen to all of the Super Roots releases Boredoms have done. There are a total of nine, although the numbering goes to 10 for the fourth was never made available. They span from 1993 to this year, and they certainly show remarkable evolution of style over the period. Some are merely a batch of sort, spastic cuts while others are very long, rhythmic epics. One even extents over a hour for a lone track. The newer ones feature remixes, which are often as good as the original song, something I find is somewhat rare in my opinion. Have fun and hopefully I'll be able to get some posts up despite this internet issue.

To be had here:

  1. The fourth "Super Roots" never got made at all...they went from 3 to 5. The word for "four" is also the word for "death" ("shi,") and some people are superstitious. Kind of like how some buildings don't have a 13th floor...

  2. This is only one theory as to why the fourth album was never made. I've also read that it wasn't intended not to release Super Roots 4 but that it was a legal issue or dispute with the label giving them a reason to merely skip it. It does seem quite the coincidence that it is the unlucky number 4. Perhaps we could get Yamantaka Eye to tell us the true story?
