9/10 Rogue Herman Customer review, 15th April 2015
On first inspection it appears Swindon-based three piece NBOs have tried to cram in too many of their references into one artefact. Its photocopied cut-out and stick-on sleeve recalls the Brechtian artwork seen on the Gang Of Four and Fire Engines early singles and it comes with its own highbrow booklet insert which either tries to explain the lyrics of its 19th Century English History lesson A-side or confuse listeners completely - I'm not sure which. However by the time this feedback-guitar layered drone is over - which doesn't take long given its marvellously short 1 min 37 secs running time - you know you have discovered something unusual and exciting.
Further plays reveal a mesmeric monotonous motorik 'klanging' layering of noise which would have Kevin Shields and Thurston Moore running for cover. The b-side perhaps attempts to counter this with an epic long drawn out Nile Rodgers-style 2 chord groovy disco chug over a glorious deliberately(?) naff synthetic drum machine beat. Again you're hooked and left wanting more. Weird and contradictory, challenging yet catchy. Not for everyone.
