Few artists have ever matched the intensity of the Boredoms. In a frenzy on the level of bands like Naked City and Mr. Bungle (both of whom took strong inspiration from the Boredoms), their epileptic rhythms, firebombing instrumentation and volatile vocal maneuvers combine uncontrolled, frenetic ecstasy and technical mastery. By dropping toy instrument breaks between grindcore blasts and bastardized techno, they create their own language out of the detritus of musical forms and take the listener through a Surrealist misadventure. Their sound, as well as their career, is fraught with unpredictability. Few bands have reinvented themselves as consistently as the Boredoms after they took Hardcore music to its self-destructive limit. Always musical saboteurs, they now perform extreme experiments in psychedelia, Krautrock and Musique Concrete, creating long, sustained passages of mutating, sublime guitar noise, tribal rhythms and tape manipulation.
