Not a Photograph: The Mission of Burma Story (MVD)

With his 2001 book Our Band Could Be Your Life, rock scribe Michael Azzerad officially etched the Mission of Burma story in stone. But the band's tale never grows stale. Battling commercial indifference as well as guitarist Roger Miller's intense tinnitus, MoB sold few records in the early '80s, yet became one of the most important and influential outfits of post-punk era. Culling footage from the Boston group's 2002 reunion, Not a Photograph digs deep into a distant past and successful resurrection, validating along the way what true diehards have always known: MoB rocked like no other.
