Yip-Yip-Yip-Yip-Yip-Yip-Yip-Yip-YEEEOOOOWWW!!! for the Boredoms

Ian Christe, Alternative Press, March 1993

IT’S THE FRESHEST sound around, if you ever get the chance to hear it. The Boredoms play the space jazz rap music of the times – hardcore punk that sounds simultaneously like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Butthole Surfers, De La Soul, and Sun Ra. They can rock like Napalm Death, but have a heart like John Coltrane.
