Mission of Burma - VS.

Mission of Burma is one of those awesome 80's bands that managed to sound both punk and post-punk at the same time (see also: Minutemen, Hüsker Dü, Fugazi, fIREHOSE, etc). Mission of Burma always sounded like a bunch of guys who would play the exact same music whether 20 people came to see them or 20,000. They had (and have because they're back together and rocking out as if it hasn't been 30 years since they formed) true artistic integrity. They're everything you want from a bunch of guys who have a tendency to make a ruckus in a gloriously gritty way. Vs. is the very best that early Mission of Burma had to offer, but I recommend any and all of their albums because these guys never made a bad one.
