Boredoms in NYC July 2, 2006
I last saw the Boredoms in 1994 at Threadwaxing Space, and their style then was full-bore Dada Punk. Nothing to latch on to, starting up great riffs only to drop them two or three bars later. Really great vision artistically, but very frustrating to the audience who really wanted to throw down.
Fast forward to 2006 and they’ve grown into a sound 180 degrees away from that. Now it’s long mesmerizing percussion grooves, almost as if they’ve gone hippie in their mature years. And who could blame them?
