5.0 out of 5 stars Pop Art Splatter Punk August 30, 2003
By vyper
Format:Audio CD
Let me get this out of the way:this is a masterpiece.Yes.I said it.It will annoy all but 10 people in the world(and those 10 don't even listen to it anymore),but is an art punk masterpiece nonetheless.
This is the sound of ADD afflicted Japanese punks throwing all their favorite sounds(punk,world music,70's era R&B/funk,psycherock ,etc.)into a blender,grinding it up and trying to splice it back together while watching a Looney Tunes marathon from the comfort of their padded cells.
You either get this,or you dismiss it with a condescending sneer.Words do not do justice to the insanity on display here,this is like Jackson Pollock making love to Robert Williams.Yeah,it's art honey.Low brow,scum pop art.Once again a small group of Japanese sonic terrorizers churn out a dizzying array of colorful sounds played more truly,if trashy,then their Western peers.And once again,WITHOUT the stink of self importance that stifles so many.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old Tatari for 100% Pure-Ear April 30, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Eveyone I know hates this album. Who can blame them? Some Japanese kids with _SEVERE_ ADD running around inside a studio doing pisstakes left, right & centre. I mean, these friends... some of them appreciate Fantomas, Mr. Bungle and other strange bands, but the Boredoms just crush them. Sure, Fantomas may not ever be able to play a riff for more than 10 seconds at once, the Melvins may drone on the same note for 6+ minutes, but THIS?!?!? Again, who can blame one for feeling that way?

Nevertheless I can listen to all 67 or so minutes of Pop Tatari and never be bored, never be annoyed, always engaged and entertained. Someone wrote that this is like a Manga comic for your ears and that really captures it perfectly. I can't imagine what the A&R rep at Reprise was thinking (this was on a major label?). They clearly took a chance and didn't reign in this band one bit and the results are spectacular.

For all the insanity and abrasiveness contatined within, this album is actually very soothing in some inexplicable way. It's the ultimate in stress relief, but not like listening to Minor Threat or Slayer which amps up the anger level, but rather like watching a hilarious movie. Great for road trips too, as long as there's no one along for the ride. This is what I use to de-compress from listening to god-awful AOR Top 40 bucolic radio garbage force-fed to me at work.

Just try singing along.

4.0 out of 5 stars Robot Fish To Resurrect Fossils September 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
New robotic fish unveiled by Japanese scientists will allow long extinct species to be recreated. The robot models of modern fish are so lifelike that only closely inspecting the eye tells them apart from real fish. The project at Chateau Boredom cost $1 million and the company expect the technology will be used in virtual aquariums. They have already created a robotic replica of the rarely-seen coelacanth. They intend to recreate fish which died out millions of years ago and are known only from fossil. "If this technology disseminates well enough, the cost could go down and we might have them in the entrance hall. But, at this point, I cannot say that is happening," remarked Eye-san with a sly wink as he climbed into his submarine.
Yoshimi, on the other hand, believes there may be spin-offs for the band's main business: "The idea of this fish fin movement could be applied to realize the difficult technology of making guitars to feedback under the ocean. Starfish and sea-urchin and giant squid, all need noise-rock, too."
Boredom's expertise was stretched to the limit to develop the fish. Dozens of tiny sensors around the tank transmit messages to the fish, telling them where to swim, what to wear, who to turn to in times of great inner turmoil. The messages are sent from a computer inside Yoshimi's favorite cocktail drum. The robot sea bass is controlled from Eye-san's microphone.
The first robot, a sea bream, weighs 25kg and is 500cm long. Its top speed is 18 knots. The battery can keep it swimming for up to 30 minutes.
In comparison, the coelacanth robot is a metal monster, weighing in at 40kg and measuring 120cm long.
The first robotic fish, a tuna, swam in 1994 in Yamamotor's pool.

5.0 out of 5 stars No goi ooh ooh aaah yakakakakakak! November 12, 2001
By J. Book
Format:Audio CD
In the late 60's and early 70's, Warner Bros. were very bold in the type of music they unleashed to the public. That returned in 1991 when The Boredoms were signed to Warner Bros. and released the masterpiece known as POP TATARI. It contained all of the Boredoms trademarks: screaming, loud distortion, weird electronics, screaming, chanting, screaming, sound effects, feedback, and believe it or not, some screaming. Inbetween this you might hear some folk, ska, grunge, and in "Cory & The Mandara Suicide Pyramid Action Or Gas Satori", some actual R&B interpreted by Eye Yamatsuka and friends.
Yes, what they create in the studio and on stage is insane, but this is why they are loved and admired. How this got on Warner Bros. I'll never now, but whoever came up with the idea was/is a genius.
