NEW DAWN FADING

Welcome back to Drag City! And yeah, don't pay attention to the clock on the wall. Face it, if you're still thinking about 2017, you're WAY behind!

posted September 19th, 2017

Fumio Miyashita’s long awaited live sets from the California based Boffomundo Show are finally available on vinyl this Friday! Videos from the taped live sets, recorded in 1979 and 1980 respectively, have been circulating on Youtube for years and caught the eye of Brian Weitz (aka Geologist, from the influential trio Animal Collective), who helped facilitate getting this incredible music to us so it could be released for the first time on any format!
