This single includes an extended 17-minute remix of "Super Going," one of the stronger songs from Boredoms' breakthrough release Super Ae. While leaving the basic structure of the epic two-chord guitar workout intact, Boredoms leader Yamatsuka Eye wreaks havoc with the faders, layering odd noises and warped vocals on top. His mixing technique is clearly influenced by dub reggae, with abrupt surges in sound and disorienting phasing effects. Eye's processing gives "Super Go" an extreme psychedelic flavor, but robs the song of some of its visceral power. The second track is the wryly titled "Super Punk," which is in fact nothing but a placid, slowly oscillating synthesizer drone. Boredoms fans enamored with the warped jams the band began incorporating the late '90s will enjoy this extended single, but this is not an essential Boredoms release.
