Boredoms (or V ∞ redoms, as they’re confusingly billed in their home country) preside over a haphazard patchwork of a discography. For every official album, there’s a slew of EPs, remixes and side projects, chronicling in detail the Osaka group’s evolution from schizoid noise punks to ecstatic tribal-drum circle.

Hot on the heels of last year’s “Super Roots 9” live album comes “Live at Sun Flancisco,” billed as the group’s first concert DVD (presumably the scraps of gig footage on 1998’s rare-as-hen’s-teeth “Super Seeeeee!!!!!!” don’t count).
