MISSION OF BURMA
I'm primarily familiar with Mission of Burma through R.E.M.'s cover of their song "Academy Fight Song" (as well as Moby's cover of their "That's When I Reach for My Revolver.")
Mission of Burma was a Boston art-punk outfit that lived but briefly in the early '80s. They resurrected themselves with 2004's Onoffon, and now are back again in '06 with the LP The Obliterati. Alas, I don't have much more information to share than that, but here are some sounds...
[MP3] Mission of Burma/"Good, Not Great" [from The Obliterati]
[MP3] R.E.M./"Academy Fight Song"
[MP3] Moby/"That's When I Reach for My Revolver"
