(Scott)-This one I am FAIRLY familiar with (though not as familiar as I was with the great Bleach 03),
Boredoms.....they come at the recommendation of Kurt D Cobain, for me that's pretty much enough!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boredoms formed in Osaka in 1986.  At the band's mid-90's peak, they were on a US major label, collaborated with Sonic Youth and Ween, and played Lollapalooza at the request of Kurt Cobain.  Boredoms began to explore psychedelia and Krautrock at the end of the 90's.  Vision Creation Newsun consists of nine hypnotic tracks that build and fade, with symbols for song titles (kinda like Hairway To Steven).  There is also a Vision Creation Newsun EP, a box set, and a four volume series of Vision Creation Newsun remix albums called Rebore, featuring UNKLE and other DJ's reconstructing the album.  

The album itself is a showcase for Seiichi Yamamoto's spiraling guitar patterns and the dual drummer rhythms of Yoshimi P-We and Kazuya Nishimura.  Boredoms vocalist Yamatsuka Eye is not overly obtrusive or abrasive here:  he chants and handles turntables, sampler, vocoder, and synthesizer.   

Vision Creation Newsun is far more musically accomplished than the lo-fi sound collages and scatological gibberish of early Boredoms records such as Soul Discharge and Chocolate Synthesizer.  Vision Creation Newsun is a beautiful album that hearkens back to classic psychedelia and motorik while pointing the way toward the new century's massive drum ensemble performances of Boadrum.
