Originally together just four years (1979-83), post-punk torchbearers Mission of Burma reformed in 2002 for a handful of shows...which led to more concerts, then more, and eventually the release of 2004's "ONoffON," their first new recording in over 20 years. But no one expected them to just keep putting out records, let alone records that were every bit as vital and influential as their seminal early recordings. Their first album Vs is down in the annals of time as being one of the most important post-punk records ever. Their four subsequent recordings showcase a continual growth in scope, depth, and accomplishment.
