Bands that reunite after twenty-year layoffs aren’t expected to match their glory days. There’s the welcome return of the trademarked sound but after that it’s usually lesser material that illustrates why the group were right to pack it in. Not so for Boston’s Mission of Burma, who cut their career together short in 1983 after Roger Miller’s hearing problems proved too much to continue at the necessary volume and intensity. 2004’s Onoffon was a surprisingly strong comeback that traversed the band’s jagged, guitar-intense mix of punk anger and post-punk art school concepts. 2006’s The Obliterati is even better. Where so much modern day “punk rock” aims to please with easy, hummable melodies and sweet harmonies and vocals (call that punk, kid?), Mission of Burma aim for punk’s dissonant drama where raw emotion are complimented by guitar skrotches and punishing rhythms that sound like a machine gone haywire. The sheer combustion of tracks such as “2twice,” “Spider’s Web” and the near epic “13,” with its lonely ringing tones, are reason for any guitarist to raise a glass in appreciation for such attractive aggression.
