"Super Go!!!!!"

2001 Boredoms
12" promo EP
(Warner Bros, 1996)

Boredoms are one of my favorite groups. Favorite to the point of crazy collecting. Today's piece is from a limited edition of 500, promo-only 12" EP that was offered via mail to purchasers of the original Japanese pressings of their Super Roots 5 and Super Roots 6 CDs. I don't read Japanese, and my copies of those releases did not contain the coupons needed to aquire a copy of this record, so I was reduced to searching the 'net and putting in saved searches on eBay and GEMM, to no avail.

Finally, after several years of searching, I hit paydirt! I found a Japanese record store on-line that had something I was wanting. I decided to ask if they had a handful of other items I was seeking and, holy crap, they had most of them! In addition to snagging this puppy, I got the first ゆらゆら帝国 CD, the second LP by 水玉消防団, 『満天に赤い花びら』, a couple of live flexi-discs by YBO2, and maybe something else I forgotted. We'll not discuss how much I spent, OK?

So, this 12" is comprised of reductions/remixes of the 64 minute piece "GO!!!!!" from Super Roots 5. Today's track takes up all of side one, while side two features "Super Future," "Super Now," and "Super Old." Enjoy!


  • ゆらゆら帝国 = Yura Yura Teikoku = Swinging Empire
  • 水玉消防団 = Mizutama-Shobohdan = Polka Dot Fire Brigade
  • 満天に赤い花びら = Sky Full of Red Petals

Not a bad song, really. But it has bad side effect for me, which is to get wasted.

You should hear the full 64 minute version! I usually put it on really loud and lay on the floor.

Would you be able to upload a zip of the whole 12"? I cannot find this anywhere online and Super Roots 5 is one of my favorite Boredoms records.
