(performing ‘The Obliterati”s “Donna Sumeria”, September 5, 2009)

Persons familiar with the crazy econo-touring habits of Mission Of Burma circa 1980-82 will recall the band’s American jaunts were often managed via numerous connecting flights and mind-numbing layovers.  Despite label suggestions they hit the continent via boat, there’s a similar scheme at work this week, bringing Burma to Ireland, the UK, Porugal and Spain for the first time since the release of 2009′s fantastic ‘The Sound, The Speed, The Light’.
