It Came from Japan

Boris is the best thing to come out of Japan since sushi. They're have no genre. They have no image. They have no brand. They simply are. And they are awesome.

The reason why I like Boris so much isn't because their music is so good (which it is) or that their cover art is beautiful (who doesn't like the image of a pretty Japanese girl with a congealed puddle of blood about her head?). Its because they don't seem to give a fuck about anything but the sounds they make.

Boris has 24 studio albums, 5 live albums, and 13 EPs. They've recorded 13 concert videos. They've been around for 20 years. Their music ranges from slow droney spacey stuff like Feedbacker, to the amazing Amplifier Worship, to the heavy pop of Attention Please.

Boris fucking rocks.
