The Truth about Mission of Burmas Fling with Morex Optimo!
A real concert night out at Greenpoint's Warsaw last Friday with American Ueberpunk legends Mission of Burma. Heather kinda insisted we're all coming, so the whole gang showed up although they asked for 20 bucks at the door, which usually disqualifies a show from an entry in this blog. Mission of Burma deserve an exception for two good reasons: They are real and they played for more than two hours, plus it was only getting better the longer they went. Initial sound problems didnt matter so much anymore and you could see how many bands are inspired by them guys, first of all Morex Optimo. What amazed me most: Guitar player Roger Miller chooses to play behind his amp, which is placed in front of him, front left. he is shielded from the drums by a glass paravent and uses no monitors whatsoever. no. no headphones either. Wierd, but dude, they rock and a lot of other old guys should take Mission of Burma for an example of how you reunite in style. Chapeau!
Up close and personal for over two rocking hours: Reunited Mission of Burma, The real deal.
