Back in the early ‘80s, when American post-punk bands were creating their legacies (Sonic Youth, Husker Du, X, etc.), Boston’s Mission of Burma were unplugging their guitars for good after releasing one LP, one EP and a couple of singles.) Lo and behold, some 20-plus years later, the band reunited, resulting in an astonishing beginning to Mission of Burma, Part II.  OnOffOn came out the gate with amps turned to 11, just like back in the day, Roger Miller’s guitars raging and clanging with precision and purpose, Clint Conley’s brawny bass percolating and bouncing, and Peter Prescott’s drums just as relentless and solid as they were back when the U.S. was invading Grenada. “The Enthusiast,” “Dirt,” “Fake Blood,” “Fever Moon” ... we could point to staggeringly great things on so many tracks here. The songs were recorded with Bob Weston (who also contributed tape loops and mixing) and original producer for their earlier work on Ace of Hearts Records, Rick Harte. The only original component absent from the party is tape/effects manipulator Martin Swope (who truly retired from music). Perhaps it’s all that history, or just the magic that happens when like minded musical souls get in a room together, but OnOffOn is a testament to great things coming around a second time, and it paved the way for another successful MoB outing a few years later. Long live Mission of Burma!
