2 stars Maybe not the best way to start my Boredoms listening career this one... this is their 2nd release on what would become their long established Super Roots series.

This EP (about 6 minutes in length) is varied, yet quirky and weird, in typical Boredoms style. The best track on the album is White Plastic See-Thru Finger, which has a jarring and spasmodic guitar sound reminiscent of Fred Frith in many respects; this tune is punky and raw yet actually listenable too. The rest of the material here is throwaway, ranging from just random shouting, to random noises, but to those Boredom completionists, I am sure they will find something of worth here (or maybe not!).

As for me, I would not recommend this particular release to anyone who does not already know Boredoms. I would start your Boredoms journey with a full-length album, such as Vision Creation Newsun or even Pop Tatari, if you want to hear earlier noise-orientated Boredoms. Their sound has changed over the years, so their more recent albums also maybe more to your tastes, especially as they draw more on their Krautrock influences.

As the release information says, this release came with Chocolate Synthesizer via Mail Order back in 1994.

2/5 and definitely only for collectors and fans.
