Mission of Burma


Mission of Burma are grouchy post-punk par excellence: a foursome of graying, severe creatives who happen to write gravel-gargling songs that are aesthetically severe about pedestrian stuff. Last year’s Unsound found Clint Conley, Roger Miller, Peter Prescott, and Bob Weston stepping away from side projects to ratchet together some of the strongest, most vital work of their career. Why pay a king’s ransom for Stones reunion tickets when you can pay peanuts for genuine (read: non-freeze dried) rock thrills?
