When I mentioned Burnversion the other day, it was while knowing that a lot of people probably haven't heard of them, so here you go. I first heard about Burnversion from Kevin of Creature Did, who recommended them to me during an interview back in '95 while he also happened to be wearing a Burnversion t-shirt; there's a picture on one of the Creature Did posts. It was maybe a year later that I saw the Burnversion CD (which actually might've came out in '96, I'm not sure) at Ye Olde Trash American Style, and of course I snapped it right up.
Burnversion operated within the same general territory of Dis- and some of the stuff that would start to come out on My Pal God, meaning moving past grunge onto what was still the beginnings of post-rock, or something like that. This stuff is amazing, in any case, and this has been one of my favorite CDs since the time I bought it. I've also got a Burnversion 7", which isn't nearly as good, and then there's another Burnversion CD that came out in '98 which I've never heard. You'll find a few copies of either CD listed on Amazon right now, though they're in the $25 - $40 range.
There's also a video of Burnversion on a Louisiana TV show which was just posted on YouTube a few months ago that you have to check out (click here) - it's pretty astonishing.
