Providing a retrospective of their early years,"Vs", released in 1982, was to be Mission Of Burma's only full length studio album with the original line up before disbanding.

The album was produced by Rick Harte founder of the Ace Of Hearts record label, who had also produced their debut single and EP.

The acclaimed LP featured in Pitchfork's Top 100 albums of the 1980s' with them hailing it as "a massive legacy".

Boston residents Miller, Conley and Prescott originally formed the group back in 1979 with Swope soon brought in to add tape loops (Bob Weston from Shellac took over his role after the band reformed).
