To be honest, the only reason I decided to look at Borg 64 is because I’m a die-hard Trekkie and I figured with Borg in the name it’s gotta be good. I opened up the promo materials and saw a song entitled "Late Night at Quarks". WIN! Borg 64 are from Sweden and they’ve been absent from the musical world for about seven years. They have re-emerged with a 4 song 12 minute mind fuck entitled Anywhere But Here released on Discouraged Records.
"Late Night At Quarks" didn’t disappoint. It’s part South Park, part Ministry, part Atari, all good. The 10” closes with a jaunty tome dedicated to their hometown of Lulea. The song is the most straight ahead composition of the four on Anywhere But Here. I was thoroughly entertained and enthralled by Anywhere But Here.
Anywhere But Here is not for the casual punk rock fan. Nor is it for the staunch dub step electronica fan. You have to be a special kind of crazy to like this. I am that kind of crazy. Sven Engdahl Hamilton, Fredrik “Buffy” Johansson, and Markus Wanler put together something totally cool. There is nothing quite like it on the market today.
