At the Villette Sonique festival in Paris we interviewed one of the seminal bands of the underground of the 80’s. Mission of Burma influenced bands like Drive Like Jehu, Pixies, Fugazi, Nirvana, REM, Moby, Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, Sugar, Jawbox, Graham Coxon and much much more.

After breaking up in 1983, they reunited again in 2002 for two gigs. The result: they’ve been kicking ass in epic proportions for 6 years now, releasing two new great albums and inspiring a whole new generation of fans. Beat that Police and all pointless reunion bands!

This is the first part about the general history of Mission of Burma. There will be a second part about the rerelease of their 80’s catalog, Jimi Hendrix, and fishing when your eighty.
