Rebirth of Gerberdaisy is the fifth BOOF longplayer. Ten-track, double vinyl released on Running Back in collaboration with Bubbletease Communications. Produced by Maurice Fulton.

"Maurice Fulton is infamously press-shy, but you can get a good idea of his personality through his music. A Maurice Fulton record embodies the idea of being high on life. Joy seems to permeate every surface and sound in his music. Fulton has many aliases and projects, and my favourite is BOOF, the name he dusts off every five years or so for a celebration of funk, techno and jazzy noodling. The records are all flower-themed, and they burst out of the speakers like springtime in bloom. Rebirth of Gerberdaisy (a reference to the first BOOF record, Life Is Water For Gerbadaisies When They Are Dancing) might be his best one yet, as much a showcase for his multi-talented fingers -- guitar, piano, drums, organ, shamisen -- as his production skills . . . No matter what style or approach he's taken, Fulton has always had a vibrant outlook and gifted approach to music. The BOOF records are like a quantized version of the Parliament Funkadelic LPs that blazed a new trail through soul, funk and progressive rock in the '70s. They simmer and boil over with the same infectious, half-winking energy of Fulton's hero George Clinton. But you can't really compare Fulton with anyone else, and there isn't a moment on Rebirth of Gerberdaisy, through all of its stylistic shifts, that doesn't sound exactly like Maurice Fulton. After all, why settle for one genre when you can make them all sound like your own?" --Andrew Ryce for Resident Advisor
