About This Act

was a pop-punk band that formed in Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1992, known for their zaniness and abnormality. Their aesthetic seemed to borrow from Devo and The Dickies. They display a sci-fi bizarro style reminiscent of Buckaroo Banzai.

Fronted by Rev. Nørb, live Boris performances featured interactions with the audience reminiscent of improvisational stand-up comedy, as breaks between songs were filled with Norb joking about obscure pop culture minutae. This dialogue peppers Boris' records as well. All but two of their full length LPs (as well as many of their 7"s) contain spoken introductions by Norb: In the case of their cover album of the Circle Jerks' "Group Sex", the duty was handed over to "an automated robot monologue service based in the Naboo System", whereas "Saucer to Saturn" contains no introductory monologue whatsoever.
