[POST-PUNK LEGENDS] Is there a better indie-rock comeback story than of Mission of Burma? After releasing a few landmark records in the early ’80s—notably the seminal Signals, Calls, and Marches EP and the equally great follow-up full-length, Vs.—the band broke up before getting back together in 2002, before it was the cool thing to do. Burma isn’t simply in it for the money, either. Last year's excellent Unsound was the band’s fourth new album in a decade, as Burma's members are far from the kind of dudes willing to play the same-old-hits set every night. In 2009, the band’s hometown of Boston declared October 4 “Mission of Burma Day,” but that designation should really extend to every other day of the year as well.
