The Unofficial BOREDOMS Side Projects/Cameos Discography
(HTML Version 3.0b)
File collated by Dave Watson of the Severed Heads Liberation Front. NOTE: Send updates and corrections (there's always going to be more) to me at the address link in this paragraph. I am looking for as much detail as possible. If you have any information about band line-ups, song titles and lengths, print status and collector variations (Limited editions? Different artwork?), please e-mail me with it (be sure to remove the spam trap first) so I can include it. You will be credited below if (A) your info makes it in, and (B) if I remember to add your name among the insanity of updating; please forgive me if I forget. I've stopped the update alert E-mail service because I was doing the worst job in the world of maintaining the list of addresses. Just keep checking the index page for any changes in the update dates.

Due to the number of side projects that Boredoms have participated in which have not released any recordings, I've made an anti-discography specifically for these, called Guitar Barrio.
You can also go to Pop Kiss (the unofficial Boredoms discography).

I'm always looking for more.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
I could not have done this without the help of the following extremely cool people:
The staff of Shake Records (R.I.P.) in Ottawa for their kind help and patience;
Mason Jones of Charnel Music, for pitching in a significant amount of what is in this;
Tsuyoshi Ota, whose encyclopedic knowledge of Eye-related matters has made these listings live, breathe and laugh a little more;
Matt Exile of the late, great Exile Osaka zine and Kansai Time Out for service above and beyond the call of duty;
Keith Ng for valuable help with the frames;
The record stores King Kong, Giga and Time Bomb (plus a couple of HMV branches) in Osaka, Japan for not booting out the gaijin otaku taking down notes;
Colin Pascal for scanning covers and articles for me;
Forced Exposure for allowing me to use the cover scans on their web site (where I've also gotten some new/missing info from);
Steve Dumas and Matthew Suffidy for letting me use their gear to scan more covers myself;
Yoshiyuki Suzuki of the Improvised Music from Japan website, whose permission to use their more up-to-date Seiichi Yamamoto home page (created by Naoko Suzuki) has allowed me to fill several holes in my information here;
For contributions and updates (in no particular order):
Ben Sisario; Jon Abbey; Patrice L. Roussel; Jason Kushnir; Vkpinokio; Axel Grumbach of Human Wrechords; Moses; Mike Rizzi; Heffalump; Birdman Sound in Ottawa; Jonas Vognsen; Dave Reckner; SUGAR in their vitamins?; Nouri Zander; Dave Lindberg;
Organised Sound in Ottawa; Mike Gunn; Simon Poole; "PHiD0"; "toddlike"; Tomoko Rokugawa (for a bit of translation help); Fredrik Jonsson; David Ilic; Peter Hoflich; Robin at Other Music; Michael Gillham; Alan St. Laurent; Alan Cummings; Alan/unisonic30; Eric Lumbleau; Peter Foti; Graham Halliday; Earl Kuck; Spencer/Trigonometry G; Jason McFee of the Boredoms Temple of Worship; Kasey Clark; Ted Watts; David Schmitz; Ichabod Crane; Ken Dodd; elfking05; Claude Zachary; anybody who I may have forgotten;
and, last but not least, Boredoms themselves (and the people who hired and worked with them on these projects) for making all of this cool music possible. Special thanks to Seiichi Yamamoto for pitching in some extra information via Matt Exile. BO!
