"Vision Creation Newsun" by Boredoms (1999)
Boredoms  "Vision Creation Newsun"  1999 (Japan)
Over the course of the past few decades, Boredoms have proven to be one of Japan's greatest bands, as well as one of the most original groups of the current era from anywhere in the world.  In their early days they played scatological noise punk (I originally had them pegged as "the Japanese Butthole Surfers"), but towards the end of the 1990's they totally changed their style and became obsessed with electronic drones and trance-inducing rhythms, beginning with the twin classics Super Ae (1998) and Vision Creation Newsun.  (Longtime member Yoshimi P-We has also been making great music during the last decade leading her own side band, OOIOO).
Here is a music video from this album.
In their early punk rock days Boredoms played like this!
But these days they are drum crazy, and play like this!
