In 1980, “Academy Fight Song,” a single by unknown band Mission of Burma, burst onto the Boston scene, giving an intellectual spark to the ground level post-punk revolution with its shards of guitars spinning out in military precision and vocalist Clint Conley shouting: “I’m not not not not not not ... your academy!” In 1981, the EP Signals, Calls and Marches followed, and “That’s When I Reach for My Revolver” and “This is Not a Photograph” hit the same sweet spot as “Academy.” The ebb and flow of “Red,” the guitars-gone-wild on “Outlaw,” and the sweeping “All World Cowboy Romance” were further proof of M.O.B.’s genius. Roger Miller’s guitar maneuvers had evolved into massively aggressive forms, while Conley’s bass and Peter Prescott’s drums provided solid ground beneath the vortex. Martin Swope created a fourth instrument in the way of textures, loops and flow, and encouraged the band’s affection for extreme volume. In 2008, Matador Records reissued the EP, along with both sides of the “Academy” single plus two previously unreleased studio tracks, “Devotion” and “Execution.” The tracks were remastered from the original analog tapes by producer and Ace of Hearts Records (M.O.B.’s original home) head Rick Harte.
