9/10 Dave Staff review, 13 January 2011

Two bands for the price of one. That's value for money. Oh Contessa, you really shouldn't bestow these charms and trinkets upon my bonce. I actually found myself bumming this record. It simply fuckin rocks. Orphan have a sort of Lydia Lunch type thing going on, with maybe a sly doffing of a cap to late 80s early 90s bands like Drain or some other Texan rock types. It has a rawness and punk rock energy that proper pins you down and smacks you repeatedly in the chops. Orphan's four tracks on side A have loads of quality and abrasive production which sounds just ace. I'm like Harrison Ford with the Black Eyed Peas.. I'm proper down with it. Dope Body have a more jazz-metal type thing going on. But it still has loads of quality moments. It has sweet time signatures and fuckloads of quality shredding. They have more tracks on their side but if you had to decide who was the better side you would still find it hard to call as both bands have loads of quality. It's a bit like the old "who would win in a fight - Robocop or The Terminator?" question. No one knows; just sit back and enjoy the mayhem.... A fucking sweet record.
