Pukers - Born In the USA

This release has been around for over a year now, but I just rediscovered it in a very poorly labeled folder ("b.i.t.u.s.a") on my harddrive and finally gave it the attention it deserves. Ex Raccoo-oo-oon members. Presumably influenced by the late- 80s/early-90s Japanese noise rock bands/artists such as Boredoms, The Gerogerigegege, or Keiji Haino, Pukers' "lo-fi tape trash jamming" is just as primitive and unsophisticated. Cassette features awesomely butchered covers of The Beatles' "Yesterday" and Springsteen's "Born In the USA".

Great blog, I visit often.

This link seems to be broken - I can click it and I get re-directed to the mediafire page, however upon clicking the download button nothing happens.

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

Thanks, and keep up the good shit.

Early 90's Boredoms 'unsophisticated'? Clearly, you never had the pleasure of seeing them live at the time. They were easily one of the most complex, sophisticated groups I'd ever seen, every time I was fortunate enough to see them.

Nice blog, by the by...
