That's when I reach for my revolver

Photoshop assembly not required: Mission of Burma meet the Click Five.

"Perhaps ONoffON picked up where 1982's Vs. LP left off. On this next recording, the band is no longer concerned with picking up where we left off in the post-punk era."

-- Roger Miller, in recent Pitchfork interview.

"Well, we were really big fans of Ashlee Simpson's last record," said Mission of Burma's house grump, Peter Prescott (far right), at Somerville's Q Division studios recently, "so when we went to hang out with her at the Orpheum we ran into these guys." "And, y'know, they're really engaging performers," said bassist Clint Conley (leering, second from right). "That kid who plays keyboards? With the running around the stage and the pointing at girls and stuff?"

"The singer is my favorite frottage artist since Max Ernst," sniffed MOB singer/guitarist Roger Miller (rear, glasses).

Asked to confirm rampant rumors that the new Mission of Burma album Lure of the Pollinators includes a guest appearance by hometown power-pop poster boys the Click Five on the song "That's How I Entrenched My Hipster Bait," fourth-Burma Bob Weston (left rear, bedhead) smiled and made the zipping-my-lips sign. "A gentleman never tells," he said.
