LIVE SHOW

Jimmy (mob tour manager) tapes down the set list on the stage. Two full columns come into view. Jimmy says to the eager fans who eye this paper like the long lost lover they thought never to embrace: "There are TWO sets. Please don't take this until the end." I'm really hyped up now knowing that Burma is once again spoiling us with more MOB in one evening than one could ever have dreamed of in a life time only two short years ago. Their energy is immense: their playing is tight and assured. Their European stint seems to have revved them up rather than sapped their reserves. Clint steers the evening into unique waters right from the start when, praising Bob Weston in his absence, he notes that this evening is a return to primal Burma - a three man line-up. Speaking of three's a charm: The Wipers started it, the Melvins picked it up, and Burma has blasted it into the new millenium.

WIPERS


Once again MOB channels a raw urgent energy in this time of pungent politics. Brilliant musical archaeology coupled with a prescient/contemporary anthemic song structure make their choice and delivery of "YOA" a slamming call to the ballot box to oust that "Shrub." Yeah, "Youth of America... It is time we rectify this... NOW, NOW, NOW."
