It's fantastic news for Chicago Boredoms fans that the band has signed to Thrill Jockey for the world outside Japan. This should get them some more-reliable U.S. distribution: coming in April, a deluxe reissue of Super Roots 9, recorded live in 2004. There's also a U.S. tour on deck, and the home of the Boredoms' new home isn't getting stiffed: their March 26 gig at the Congress Theater will be one of only a few performed "in the round." It is also my understanding that a seven-necked stand-mounted guitar will be involved.
