The first salvo in a category of spotlighting releases I think are the Bee's honey.
First up is Mission of Burma's 1980 EP signals, calls, and marches. Make sure and get the reissue on Ryko b/c it contains their first 7" Academy Fight Song b/w Max Ernst. I don't have anything particularily novel to say about this EP and I'm not sure how to adequately gush over it in print, so just know it is a must own for any fan of alternative music.
The release contains two classics of the original alternative underground That's When I Reach For My Revolver and the aforementioned Academy Fight Song. Both were written by bassist Clint Conley, while the rest of the songs were written by guitarist Roger Miller. Miller's work is also excellent, but it's Conley's contributions that secure this EP as a favorite.
Here is That's When I Reach For My Revolver.
Buy the EP at Ryko.
