Boris: Roaring Silence Revue

It was one of those things I dreamed of. I'm sure I mentioned it to people. More than likely mentioned it to Frat somewhere in Illinois when we hit traffic for the first time on our cross country trip. Needing a little something to keep our minds off the distance we fired up the DFA '79 debut cover to cover and then Rainbow, the classic collaboration that still hasn't been knocked off the top spot for album of the year honors. So somewhere in Illinois. As the sun set and the traffic thinned. One of us might have said..."fuck, that'd be great if Michio joined Boris on their next US tour."

Ask and you shall receive.

Just saw these guys at the Kelly-Strayhorn Theater in Pittsburgh on 10/4. GREAT show. Met Michio. Got the poster you have pictured... Damon & Naiomi + Michio signed it. What a great night. If you dig these guys... wow... an awesome experience. I NEVER thought I would have an opportunity to see Kurihara play live... just great. HUGE LOUD sound. Bring ear plugs if you got'em.
