That’s When I Reach For My Revolver

One of the biggest bands in the Boston live music scene in the late 70s was Mission of Burma.  I can’t remember how many times I saw them.  In 1979 the MIT college radio station played their song “Peking Spring” more than any other.  They were a favorite of Boston Rock the way cool local magazine, a kind of combination of the Village Voice and Rolling Stone and far more important in Boston than either.  If The Rat was our church, then Boston Rock was our bible.  It was a wonderful crazy scene.  You can also go back to my February 26th post for a video of Human Sexual Response.
