Boretronix is the name of a series of obscure self-released[1] cassette-only releases by Japanese noise rock band Boredoms, consisting of heavily edited recordings of rehearsals and live shows.[2] Although four releases are documented,[3] six are reported to exist,[1] and only the first three are proven to exist after they were made available online. All were released in extremely limited quantities.
